We have five vices that all humans battle with, kaam is sexual desire doesnt matter if you are homosexual or hetorsexual everyone battles it. SGGSJ shows the way to defeat kaam and all five vices.


grihu thaj ban kha(n)dd jaaeeai chun khaaeeai ka(n)dhaa || Abandoning his household, he may go to the forest, and live by eating roots;

ajahu bikaar n shhoddee paapee man ma(n)dhaa ||1|| but even so, his sinful, evil mind does not renounce corruption. ||1||

kio shhootto kaisae tharo bhavajal nidhh bhaaree || How can anyone be saved? How can anyone cross over the terrifying world-ocean?

raakh raakh maerae beet(h)ulaa jan saran thumhaaree ||1|| rehaao || Save me, save me, O my Lord! Your humble servant seeks Your Sanctuary. ||1||Pause||

bikhai bikhai kee baasanaa thajeea neh jaaee || I cannot escape my desire for sin and corruption.

anik jathan kar raakheeai fir fir lapattaaee ||2|| I make all sorts of efforts to hold back from this desire, but it clings to me, again and again. ||2||

jaraa jeevan joban gaeiaa kishh keeaa n neekaa || Youth and old age - my entire life has passed, but I haven't done any good.

eihu jeearaa niramolako kouddee lag meekaa ||3|| This priceless soul has been treated as if if were worth no more than a shell. ||3||

kahu kabeer maerae maadhhavaa thoo sarab biaapee || Says Kabeer, O my Lord, You are contained in all.

thum samasar naahee dhaeiaal mohi samasar paapee ||4||3|| There is none as merciful as You are, and none as sinful as I am. ||4||3||

From my experience, abhiyaas (practice) of gurbani is the only way to loose the grip of maya. Pick a bani, any bani, that you feel especially close to and recite it for 1hr (or more :) ) everyday. Ask Guru Sahib to grant you focus at the beginning and thank them for letting you sit the full hour once you have finished. In a relatively short period of time you will feel a big difference in your thoughts. Give it a shot for a couple of weeks at the very least :) Personally, I would recommend mool mantr (till 'nanak hosi bhi sach') but you can do abhyaas of any other bani as well :) Unfortunately for me, I have not been able to keep it consistent but hopefully Guru Sahib does kirpa on you :)

The short answer is, "no." That's the way your brain is wired up. It seems from your question that you are ashamed about it. Please understand that humans come in all flavours and sorts. All are beloved.

Here are a couple of good support sites.


  2. The Gay Sikh blog

I'm sure you can find a lot of kindred souls here on the Web.

I don't think so. Homosexuality is part of the kudrat Karishma. Nature is about diversity. Accept it and love it. It is hard because people judge you but you can't change who you are. If people judge you for being black, you can't stop being black.
