Is Homosexuality Against Religion? – Section 377 #UnplugWithSadhguru

So, I am pretty sure everyone knows about
section 377 being decriminalized, yeah? And I think most of the youth, we’d have
gone back home, we are very happy about this and we talk to our parents and people from the…
like you know older generation, right? So when we discuss something like this
with our older generation, they said, “We are not going to debate with you as such, we are not going to impose our perspectives on you but this is not accepted in our religion”. So just want to know your perspective on, you know, the LGBT community or homosexuality as such with religion Sadhguru: See, probably till now,
largely in the social space, in the media space, in the social media space,
everybody is pitching either for or against. Can we for some time not pitch for or against
and simply look at the issue as it is? Can we? Participant: Yes! Sadhguru: Look at me, I am not a prude, okay?
(Few laugh) Let that be clear (Laughs). So, when we say sexuality, lets understand this – it is something nature has put in us because there is something called as perpetuation
of the race or the species otherwise it won’t happen. Of course we being human beings, having
more brains than body, supposed to (Few laugh) because of that,
we kind of eliminated the reproductive part and just using the pleasure part of it, all right? This is sexuality right now largely in the world. But essentially this pleasure also is
come into the sexuality process because otherwise… well, if there was no pleasure to it maybe
we wouldn’t be born, you and me. Our parents would not have gone into it,
if there was no pleasure at all attached (Laughter). Yes or no? Participant: Yes! Sadhguru: So, we are here because of that. So there is no denying it or putting it under the carpet,
that’s not the thing. But somebody has a certain kind of sexual preference, which has got nothing to do with
reproductive process as such. It is their personal preference, because every individual has the right to do
whatever the hell they want to do with their body, because it’s their body. But if it is something harmful,
you are going to cut your nose off, or you are going to cut something else off
then maybe we will try to prevent you. But you are not causing any harm to yourself in that way, then it’s your business
as long as you do something in your private. Right now the Supreme Court decision is just that, that what a person does in their
private space is nobody’s business. Government need not enter people’s bedrooms
– that is the law, alright (Laughter)? Now, coming to this religious resistance,
there’s nothing religious about this. We don’t have to discriminate against them,
we don’t have to persecute them, we don’t have to put them in the prison –
definitely it’s not necessary. But at the same time it doesn’t need promotion either.
So, you don’t have to… When your parents say something, they may
refer to their religion because they think it’s an authority. You take away the authority, just listen to the words, If it makes sense, do it. If it doesn’t make sense, tell them politely,
that’s not the way it is with me, alright

  1. Supreme Court recently passing two landmark rulings – one on reservation, now on LGBT rights.
    The fact that even though the jury is a generation or two older than the present, passing such progressive judgements is truly an achievement of the Indian judicial system.

  2. I'm glad to hear that you said if something is said in religion and doesn't feel right to you don't agree .. Why did you once say that India shouldn't export beef… As it is only religious sentiments that come in the way…. Anyways kudos for one thing…. More people are going to be atheists if they follow you….

  3. Sexuality related to reproduction related to pleasure. Sexual preference nothing to do with reproduction. What a person does in private bedroom religion has no business interfering. If words of religion/authority makes sense, good, if not, politely say that's not the way it is with me. That's my understanding of Sadhguru's answer.

  4. They will eventually ask for reservations every thing we discriminated before are taking reservations now like caste sc, st, obc even though they are rich now…. Same goes with women because they are born female… So in coming years LGBTQ will also ask for reservations… That is very sad every one just wants things for free without making an effort for it.

  5. He is awesome…it doesn't require promotion it is natural like any heterosexual life so why should we segregate that and promote it as if it is something to be told. If we have to change people's minds there is a whole set of issues like caste religion which also includes sexuality which people do not accept and stand by their views. Until and unless no one harm others mentally or physically no need for any lectures or opinions

  6. Sir, You said in this video that "a person can do whatever the hell they can do with their bodies because IT'S THEIR BODY!" what do you mean by this statement? Bcz I don't believe it! Our body is not in out control… It never ask us before something happening to it or in any matter. Even if not this … Do you feel that there is any connection in the body and our innerself or what descartes "I" is .. or you keep them separately?????

  7. What does he mean by "promote" homosexuality? It's not something that one is out of choice and some kind of social influence. No amount of "promotion" can make a heterosexual a homosexual and vice versa. People just are what they are.

  8. Homosexuality is a stimulating choice,lack of motivation.A man born as man could become a man leaving all the transgender thoughts by motivating himself,Here motivation play a crucial role for every person to become who he should be.A man if known about growing muscles,become a soldier or become best son to his parent snever get thoughts becoming lgbt etc..

  9. Y separated answers for a single question….Couldn't a straight question get a straight n better answer?
    hesitation? / not to be controversial?

  10. Today the internet and the various social media platforms are filled with a lot of debates and discussions regarding the section 377 and the LGBT community but none of them gave me the content that I got here. Listening to you has always been a pleasure to me. You brought the whole discussion at such a point where not even a single word can be added further.

  11. I love to listen to satguru. He has answered many of my questions. I feel peace when i listen to him. I have gain perspective. I have many LGBTQ friends. I value virtue more than body looks. I find strong character more attractive. I have unconventional family. I am taking care of 2 little kids and one young adult. My eldest one is 28 year old. She is beautiful but what i love most about her is her strong character and values she practice.
    I encourage her to listen to satguru.
    Before watching this video i thought to my self ,if satguru say anything against LGBTQ community i will stop listening to him. I love to listen to ajan bhram. He is amazing compassionate Buddhist monk. He said once that buddha doesn't care what you do in your bedroom.
    Only 3 type of sexual relationship is against buddha .
    1. With mentally challenge person. Coz they can't give consent.
    2. Minors. They are not capable to give consent.
    3. Rape. It is ofcourse without consent. Even in marrige.
    Other than these 3 cases . Who is fucking who is not our business.

  12. Yea. Do what you want. Harm to none. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ช๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’ž

  13. as a human we can accept many things which appropriate for us but God's rule is different.Homosexuality is prohibited by God.

  14. He clearly answered the question. "It's absolutely an individual's choice" "It's nothing to do with religion" ..Still people are commenting that he is a diplomat. ๐Ÿ™‚ Manddbuddhi logg.

  15. I watch many videos of Sadhguru regularly. I have also seen several videos of him answering questions on homosexuality. My opinion is he does not completely say what he honestly thinks of homosexuality. He skillfully answers in a way that we won't know what his stand really is. I am confident there is a reason why he is doing this. Perhaps he feels we are not collectively at a state of maturity to take what he truly feels. Perhaps he feels this is not a very important topic to stir a debate on.

  16. Human combination of physical and psychological
    If someone cut his hand is physical
    But psychological damage never visibly for other
    How did you told government won't enter any individuals life
    Are you sure
    Iyyapan issue
    Muth thalak issue
    And so many

    But the government don't have right to enter other privacy


  17. Hinduism always accepted all kinds of sexualities. For eg, Lord Ayyappa was born to Hari-Hara(Vishnu-Shiva) and the Khajuraho and many more. And regarding the last part, he says, "no need to promote it either". The fact is that, no one can promote homosexuality. Coz, it's a natural and inborn condition.

  18. @Bikram, as you mentioned regarding Hinduism accept a person what they are, not caring about their gender, Color etc, Then why we donโ€™t accept every human being is equal and have same rights, Which other religion has cast system? Lower class can not do this or that…still lower cast people and their kids are treated very poorly. There fore they are converting to Muslim religion? We all need to embrace every human being and treat them as equal and same rights. Please Donโ€™t take it personally! Thanks

  19. What promotion?
    Giving people safe space to accept themselves as who they are is promotion?
    telling LGBT kids that they dont deserve to go suicidal is promotion?
    perhaps that makes sense, but as long as the WORLD PROMOTES HETEROSEXUAL acts on social media, TV, Bollywood, we have no other alternative.
    Thats not promotion! If straight people wouldnt be showing romance on daily soaps, we LGBT wouldnt be asking for that either.
    And taking off the shame that has been for many LGBT people by marching for parade and creating more awareness isnt promotion. In that way, all religious festivals and political rallies and even protests for social changes are unnecessary promotions too.

  20. Why didn't, I know it's nice to have it come from another person but, one just Google search this together, while holding to ones knowledge of their religion.
    Q.- If homosexuality is not natural, why was it not eliminated through natural selection( the evolution process, we, the type animals( human) experienced through history). It's not eliminated in bunches of different types of animals through the evolution process for them.
    So, I'm asking, Why?

  21. Everybody should know that homosexuality is in our regional.. Hindusim is only culture who shows homosexuality… Its natural…… Love ,accept youself.. That more important rather than somebody accept you ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’–love is love๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

  22. cutting body parts like.. transgender undergo genders reassignment surgery is that wrong??? in ur opinion

  23. Let's leave aside religion for now. If sexuality was meant for propagation, but with a pleasure bait it was the original intent,. Sexual preference is not causing harm for anybody including the individual then it's fine. To me, it seems like cheap psychiatry but not a complete solution. RIght now in India probably it is fine to have as many Homosexuals as possible as we do not any dearth for population. I feel the subject is lost in the object of pleasure, Me thinks its a disruptive code of conduct.

  24. Perfect answer ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ this needs to understand people donโ€™t fight with old people or old generation keep silence n do whatever u want

  25. Making a sexual orientation (a non reproductive one) a value, and one prioritised over reproductive orientations and biologically productive values automatically results in the structural break down and degeneration of a society and it's values… Be what you are and you'll be accepted as you are but do not prioritise your sexual orientation as a value and a virtue to be upholded at the demographic expense of natural outcomes

  26. Why does your religion ask you to tell two consenting adults how to live their life in their private bedroom? I thought religion was about tolerance. Guess it's not

  27. Sounds like liberals funded this clown. The only reasons our bodies develop sexual desires and impulses is to create life!! The pleasure is secondary. But if you grow up in a society where sexuality is sensationalized and overly exposed. you going to think it's for pleasure solely and creating life is a after thought.. But homosexuality omits "creating" all together

  28. But homophobia is there in society and by making this topic known to more people and tell them it's absolutely normal we can reduce homophobia to a certain extent so we should talk about these topics. Why? Bcz no one till now talked abt this that's why these topics are taboo in our society. And we need to understand the need of not discriminating people based on their sexual preferences. I think sadgurus answer was diplomatic.

  29. Homosexuality is against religion , and religion is against god ,becuase we are not designed to be religious we are designed to speak to god and the angels direct and not learn from holy books .

    No man is gods representative on earth , men can often be corrupt , and lie and cheat, and be perverted in there ways which can be people of rank within religion

  30. And now, a real dessert coming up for you straight from God from the Bible. (Romans 1 – New International Version) …… "For since the creation of the world Godโ€™s invisible qualitiesโ€”his eternal power and divine natureโ€”have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

    21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creatorโ€”who is forever praised. Amen.

    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. Although they know Godโ€™s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." …. And this one, you can put wherever you want ……. Who said that, was not me. Thanks for coming …. Any question? Nop? ….. Thank you, Sadhguru!

  31. He sounds like a wise man. What you do in private is your business but don't flaunt it. I don't flaunt that I am straight so why is non streightness flaunted in parades and such?

  32. What i dont like about these "gurus" is that they never give the answer straight away
    "Where do you live ?"
    "Let me tell you about space time itself"

  33. "DON'T CAMPAIGN AGAINST IT. AND DON'T CAMPAIGN FOR IT."ย  – sounds like words of wisdom… But what about OUR CHILDREN ??? ๐Ÿ™„ Sadhguru, liberal gays are underminding the rights of children, parents, and people of faith, and they are using the Courts to accomplish this! โ˜๐Ÿฝ Sooner or later you have to fight, to engage in a holy war ! โ˜๐Ÿฝ

  34. "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error." Romans 1:26-27

  35. Well well well! Am I surprised? No. But I still can't believe that so many people have completely lost their I.Q. Unless there is a secret global conspiracy to turn the whole world upside down, there is no reason why such diseased notions are promoted throughout the World.
