Dating a hindu man
by Jayaram VThis article presents a historical analysis of premarital sex, caste distinctions, and sexual mores of ancient Hindu communities in the context of changing traditional values among the youth and the new social challenges that may impact Hindu society. Hence it may be revised further if research brings out new information.The problem with Hinduism is that you can argue from every angle and support different standpoints, depending upon how you may view them.Sexual desire is personified in Hinduism as a deity (kamadeva) who instills the passion of love in those whom he chooses to torment.According to its beliefs, sexual desire is the basis of virility, spirituality, austerity, creation, procreation, rebirth, and continuation of existence.One such complex issue about which there can be divergent opinions and multiple realities in Hinduism is its stand with regard to premarital sex.In the following discussion we will examine this subject and see whether it was practiced at all in ancient India.
Without procreation, the worlds cannot continue and gods cannot be served. Hinduism also permits the use of sexual intercourse in certain Tantric practices for self-realization or to sublimate the sexual energy into spiritual energy.The worlds cannot exist or continue without sexual desire, and God cannot ensure the order and regularity of his creation unless beings procreate and support the gods in heaven.Since it is central to our existence, fulfillment of sexual desire is considered in Hinduism one of the chief aims of human life, without which a householder cannot attain the fourth aim, namely liberation, or ensure his existence or that of his ancestors in the ancestral heaven.Now western media tells me that if the Hindu man does not convert to Islam, he can not marry the woman.If the woman does marry the woman against the wishes of the family, the father and brothers of the girl's family will kill her.
However, as in all other matters in Hinduism, intention is important to determine whether the sexual conduct of a person is lawful (dharma) or unlawful (adharma) and whether the sexual desire is pursued for the right ends.
