Homosexuality - What did Bhagavan say about it?
« on: August 13, 2010, 10:54:47 PM »
There is currently a discussion going on in USA and in many European countries about the questions if homosexual people can change to heterosexual, and if they should be allowed to marry as man & women do.
Is homosexuality a mental disorder?
Has Bhagavan ever said something about this?

Such matters never came up for discussions when Bhagavan Ramana
was living in Tiruvannamalai.

The devotees of Sri Bhagavan were really "Really SELF CENTERED" to care to address these issues. Sri Bhagavan used to only say reform oneself and the world will reform itself

Remain quietly in the Self.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes.  All problems of sex, murder, terrorism, looting etc., do come
because one individual does not reform himself.  Bhagavan did not
even approve freedom fighters' actions, unless those who fight for
freedom reform themselves first.  I read one article recently:

The American sociologists said:  No need for Bible in schools.
  The Government agreed.
The American psychologists said:  No control over TV and other
visual media.  Let them show nudity, homosexuality, child abuse,
and abortions of unmarried women. 
The Government agreed.

The American philosophers said:  No need to control private arms.  Let them have them.  Why ban them and make them buy unauthorizedly?
The Government agreed.

Soon the mass murders increased.  Unmarried girls had abortions.  The child abuses increased.  The shootings of one boy, happened and the whole school had dead children.     

God thought.  Let us send Osama Bil Laden's people descend over America and destroy the world's best two buildings.  Let the people reform themselves first.  The World Trade Towers burned in the broad day light.

The American Government woke up.  They shunned the philosophers, psychologists and started Bible Lessons in schools,
banned the private weapons without prior approval.  Advised
the hospitals to check the abortion cases.

God smiled.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear I,

Interesting article  :D. The peak of "Doership"

Most times, I feel internally that Bhagavan only taught complete Sharanagati in the guise of Self Enquiry. (Both are same though)
