Hare Krsna Prabhus and Friends,
We hear from Srila Prabhupada that generally speaking even animals do not have homosexuality in their species!
Prabhupada: Now they
are indulging homosex, how they will become strong? And the students, they
are discussing, that means they are having. The stamina is being lost.
Now what they have created, it will be lost.
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 9th May 1975. Morning Walk. Perth, Australia)
...not sentimental. There is no religion, and still, they
are professing, "I am this reli..., I profess this religion," Where is
your religion? If actually there was religion in the human society, why
there are so many problems? There should not have been so many problems.
The problems are in the animal society. Why there should be problem in
human society? Because they have given up the real principles. They are
simply animals. Therefore there are so many problems. Actually there is
no problem. Even they are not animal. Less than animal. In animal society
there is no problem. There is problem, but not so acute. They are free.
Just like the ducks, the pigeons, they fly from one country to another.
They have no problem of immigration department, passport, or visa. They
have no problem. These rascals should understand that they have created
problem on account of their animalistic, less than animalistic civilization.
There is no limit of sense gratification. The sense gratification, homosex,
they are supporting. Just see. Just see. At least, in animal society there
is no homosex. They have created homosex, and that is being passed by the
priest, the religious heads. You know that?
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 25th August 1971. Room Conversation. London, England.)
Prabhupada: "Watchtower." It has criticized, one priest has allowed the marriage between man to man, homosex. So these things are going on. They take it purely for prostitution. That's all. So therefore people are thinking, "What is the use of keeping a regular prostitution at a cost of heavy expenditure? Better not to have this."
Syamasundara: You use that example of the cow and the market?
Prabhupada: Yes, when the milk is available in the market, what is the use of keeping a cow? (laughter) It is a very abominable condition. In the western countries I have seen. Here also, in India, gradually it is coming to be so. (Speaks to someone in Bengali) (break) ...movement is especially meant for making human life, reaching the real goal.
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 27th February 1972. Talk with Bob Cohen - became the book Perfect Questions Perfect Anwers. Mayapur, India)
My Dear Lalitananda dasa,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated May 13rd, 1975 and have noted the contents. I am very sorry that you have taken to homosex. It will not help you advance in your attempt for spiritual life. In fact, it will only hamper your advancement. I do not know why you have taken to such abominable activities. What can I say? Anyway, try to render whatever service you can to Krishna. Even though you are in a very degraded condition Krishna, being pleased with your service attitude, can pick you up from your fallen state. You should stop this homosex immediately. It is illicit sex, otherwise, your chances of advancing in spiritual life are nil. Show Krishna you are serious, if you are.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Nitäi: "Because the body is made of senses, which also require
a certain amount of satisfaction, there are regulative directions for satisfaction
of such senses, but the senses are not meant for unrestricted enjoyment.
For example, marriage..."
Prabhupäda: That is not enjoyment. Just like sex indulgence. If you indulge in more than necessary, then you will be impotent. Nature will stop. You know impotency? That will be there. Impotency. This homosex is also another sign of impotency. They do not feel sex impulse to woman. They feel sex impulse in man. That means he is impotent. It is impotency. So things are coming so rubbish now. This is the time for preaching our program, standard. Then?
Nitäi: "For example, marriage, or the combination of a man with a woman, is necessary for progeny, but it is not meant for sense enjoyment."
Prabhupäda: Now this progeny is bother. It is sense enjoyment, homosex. Progeny, they don't want. They're not interested. Only sense gratification. This is another sign of impotency. When after enjoying so many women, they become impotent, then they artificially create another sex impulse in homosex. This is the psychology. So people are degraded so much. Especially in the... Everywhere, not specially this or that. Everywhere. This is Kali-yuga. But thoughtful leaders, they are thinking, "What to do?" That's very good sign. And take advantage and give them program exactly to the direction of Bhagavad-gétä. Then the world will be saved. Otherwise it is doomed. It is a fact. This is the opportunity for preaching. You can take that paper and heading. There are so many headings. Each heading reply. We are the only persons who can give solution. There is no other group or any man in the world. We are only. So let them take advantage of our knowledge and apply in the society to the ben... That's all right. Now all the sannyäsis have got the good opportunity to preach. So where is the key? Keep it.
