Over indulgence in Sex, Lust, Promiscuity and Attachment?

The quotes are not meant to scare you, they are meant to highlight that lust (unrestrained obsession with sex) and promiscuity (casual and random sex) can hurt the body, mind as well as the soul. According to the GGS, one should get married before engaging in sexual intercourse. Moderation is stressed.

Irwin Singh (Our spiritual mentor) would caution against strictly confining the meaning of these verses and that the over all meaning should be considered in much broader sense...on the lines that "karmi karmi hoey veechaar" and that only the creator knows the specifics of his/her justice.

  1. Lust and anger wound the soul - kaam krodhh jeea mehi chott || Guru Nanak, Page 153, Line 11
  2. Sexual desire is the window, pain and pleasure are the gate-keepers, virtue and sin are the gates. - Kaam kivaaree dhukh sukh dhuruvaanee paap pu(n)n dhuruvaajaa ||Guru Arjan, Page 1161, Line 15
  3. Painful diseases afflict those who are sexually promiscuous. - bhogee ko dhukh rog viaapai || Guru Nanak, Page 1189, Line 12

At the very last moment, one who thinks of wealth, and dies in such thoughts, shall be reincarnated over and over again, in the form of serpents. ||1||

O sister, do not forget the Name of the Lord of the Universe. ||Pause||

At the very last moment, he who thinks of lust and sex, and dies in such thoughts, shall be reincarnated over and over again as a prostitute. ||2||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of his children, and dies in such thoughts, shall be reincarnated over and over again as a pig. ||3||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of mansions, and dies in such thoughts, shall be reincarnated over and over again as a goblin. ||4||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of the Lord, and dies in such thoughts, says Trilochan, that person shall be liberated; the Lord shall abide in her/his heart. ||5||2||
