Is masturbation healthy in sikhism?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Masturbation is healthy every week or so, I think, and reduces prostate cancer, so how do Sikhs view this, because I was always taught it was wrong, but surely the scientific health benefit is more important?

Maybe, similar to sex, which also releases good hormones in the, but also banned by people I know. If it does in moderation and lovingly, then is it alright, with God's kirpa?

forgot about this lol,

self love yo

I do the complete opposite of "lovingly" ahahhaha! lol joke 

I don't think there is any wrong in doing it once in a while!  i think one should work around their feelings/urges rather than go against them! But if you can stop and control/conquer those urges then thats good. If you end up trying to suppress your feelings then you end up with this little battle going on inside you and you won't be able to concentrate on anything else, so its healthy to release all that, and then you can concentrate again. But if you can control it and completely stop without it then thats even better. Better to work around it than against it. 

many sects of Christians are prohibited from using contraception and are only allowed to have sex for procreation, that is completely going against the way us humans are and think, its such a powerful force and to suppress it is mad! now we know why there are so many cases of catholic priests raping nuns!

I am a 15 year old boy with hormones kickin. Heres the thing that is stopping me from doing what you said. I searched this topic on other websites and they say that masturbation should be avoided since it “indulges lust.” And they say it is kaam and kaam is a sin. But i think that doing it to release those sexual feelings is ok, but i don't do it. I like masturbating because it gives me pleasure but everyone says its wrong for Sikhs to do. Since everyone says its wrong i stopped doing it, but i still want to do it. Is masturbation right or wrong for Sikhs to do? Also i feel like its hard to control sexual urges since that energy is trapped in you because I can’t release it because I can’t masturbate. Are males that aren't married allowed to look at other women in a attractive way, in a hot way?

    • I've tried all my strength but I can't get in contact with him as he's blocked all ways. I have to honestly put my hands up and say I do not know what else I can physically do. I have no option but to surrender to guru sahib. I do believe that ardas and benti Can make the impossible possible because at the end of the day we're all God's Children's.  I know waheguru ji has given us free will but I believe that in this era we're surrounded by kalyug and sometimes when your bani/meditation lacks kalyug gets to your mind. I know I can't force my hubby to change his mind however I can pray for him and ask maharaj to protect him from kalyug infecting his mind so that he can realise his mistakes. Laavan are very powerful and two people who are connected with laavan do have some sort of spiritual connection/authority over each other. Similarly a parent and child are closely connected too, my parents have been praying for my brother and I have seen a drastic change in him. I remember a while back when everything was going good, we did parshada for 5 Singh's, one Singh mentioned how his daughter has took amrit but her husband wouldn't change his path. She began doing ardas for him at Amrit vela to protect him from kalyugs influences and she was successful.  Guru sahib says 'Jo mange Takhur apne te soee soee deve' they also say 'har har Tera naam hai dukh metanhaara'..... So my ardas is 'har ju rakh leo patt meri' .... I know for a fact waheguru jis words cannot be lies so the lack is in me, I hope with the sangats blessings and waheguru jis mercy my prayer will be fulfilled. 
    • Yes, shows that we cannot trust anyone from other religious groups
    • A marriage is built on love, trust, respect etc. both parties need to have these for each other. We dictate our lives, not the universe so you and your partner need to actively put these qualities into action. God is not going to make someone love you respect you and you can’t force them as we have been blessed with free will. Do your best and encourage your partner to do the same Actively.    When you build a house, you don’t sit around praying that God will build it for you. You actively get up, take the bricks and build with your own hands. If you want your marriage, work on it and teach your husband about respect. Love, cherishing, to not be sexist and treat each other well. Nothing is guaranteed but at least you both would have tried. 
    • Sometimes we lose the way and sight of what we need. The Gurus asked God to help guide them across the burning world ocean. Just do and ardas and ask
    • Best not engage with someone who refuses to see sense
