Can you bring a reference to what sang means in Gurmat terms.  Literal meaning of sang is company, yet in english you mistranslate to say love.  If you were trying to adapt the union of one owns woman with thee man to the other side of the coin of never going to another woman's bed even in dreams.  This would mean to translate sang as lust in english because going to another woman's bed in dreams is all about lust and the later is being prescribed by the Guru according to your beliefs.  But obvoiusly we have Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib jis bani to shine more light on this teaching.  Satguru says not to lust and attach yourself to family, including wife.  So it can't be lust and it also can't be love because love is attachment when speaking about wife. Gurbani read as lavan as man and wife get married says nothing about loving your wife as you have so carelessly put it.  Worldly love is not approved in Gurbani.  Instead the lavan describe the journey the soul takes on the path to the Guru.  First lav says to let go of the vedas the praise to brahma.  Gurbani says the vedas are stuck in the 3 gunas and dont know the fourth state.  The 3 gunas are maya and this includes lust love and attachment.  Contemplating over the lavan a person can easily understand the meaning of "sang" in the wisdom sri guru tegh bahadur sahib ji passed on to sri guru gobind singh ji at a young age. 

The verse from Dasam Granth is obviously talking about physical relationship between male n female, husband n wife therefore are valid.

Non-marital sex is forbidden, even to fantasies is not allowed.

If you read today's Hukamnama from Sri Darbar Sahib Amritsar it will remove all doubt's about Grehasti not being Spiritual. More so Sikhs should be Udaasi within Grehast Jeevan.

which gurbani lines you referring to ? please post. 

Also I don't think anywhere any of bhagat, guru ji or bhatts baanis refer to women in any sexual way at all ! 

It is just example to help us understand jeev-aatma (often referred to as 'jeev-istree' in sikh literature) relationship with param-aatma (god) . 

Since we have no inkling of what relationship to god feels like , those who have felt it have tried to pen it in comparison to earthly relationships we do understand ! and what more intimate relation than that of a spouse ! 

In Gurbani , at places, baani sometimes go along the lines of "Dear sister, tell me how you impressed your husband ? ... he doesn't like me, but likes you, tell me how you impressed ...." something along these lines ! and final closing line is of joy of how the wife finally impresses her husband and the typical shabad would close so ".. and then he came to bed and finally I enjoyed him ... " .. 

I think I have read atleast one such shabad although I don't remember which exactly. but trust me, there's no sexual undercurrent in this shabad AT ALL ! it just helps us relate to our bodiless relationship with creator (something we don't understand) by comparing it to a relationship of intimacy that we do understand and often live ! 

Same can be said of krishna and gopis in hindu literature. Some say krishna had 16500 wives. Its not possible literally ! so again a hidden metaphor . Gopis revolving around krishna in play dance. Trust me, this often gets sexualized, but subtle metaphor is lost, namely that of souls (gopis) enjoying the spiritual bliss of krishna (god) and all of creation revolving around the creator.

Rigveda and some upanishads mention the relationship of soul (jeev) and parbrahm as such : 

"On a tree bearing multiple fruits, both bitter and sweet, sits two birds of a kind, eternal companions.

One , of golden plume and luminous sits serenly on topmost branch, unperturbed and in bliss.

On the lower branches, jumping from branch to branch, is its companion, who sometimes eat sweet fruits and sometimes bitter. 

When it eats bitter fruits, it sometimes looks up and see its undisturbed , blissed companion of golden feathers. However , it soons forget its sorrows and starts eating sweet and bitter again . 

Sometimes, again it eats bitter and this time flies on top branch , approaches the golden plume companion and when it goes very near, it realizes its golden plume is itself only, its inner-most self, the atma !"

 

 the tree refers to body or world, the golden plume companion is the real self, the bird moving from here and there is jeev . the bitter and sweet fruits are dukh and sukh respectively which we bear in this world. When the bird goes on top branch (higher avastha) , it realizes its own self, and attains liberation and bliss, which gurbaani refers to as "mann tu jot saroop hai, apna mool pachaan" 

Quite good example these seers made ! many such metaphors throughout in gurbani also. 

The bigger question is "Can we believe ? truly?"

The story is that there was an asura named NarakhAsur and he kidnapped those 16000 women, Sri Krishna ji saved those women and the women said something along the lines that who would marry them now considering that they have been captive at an asura's home. So Sri Krishna ji told them that he will be their spouses name wise.

The gurbani line you quoted describe signs of a fake saadhu ! 

In case of a gay man, it would be someone who claims to be a monk now but even within monasteries, homosexual activity is happening.

Its a lesson don't go celibacy just because of your life circumcstances lol

Lol what difference is it between a new sadhu, and someone who is gay who is forced to be 'celibate' in sikhi..(instead of fulfilling the kaam(marriage) part of life [Dharma, Artha , Kama and Mukhti])? Don't both of those unmarried people have their minds distracted at times

the 'chaar padarth' u mentioned are part of hindu dharam. Nowhere mentioned in sikhi as far as I am aware , certainly not the artha (finance) and kama(sexual desire). 

Secondly, I am wondering what if I chose middle way : like having it with other guys , and also maintaining a dharmic life (sewa, simran, etc ) ?

where would i land then ? because the longest I have gone without touching myself was 42 days ! trust me, my mind was going havoc with all of it ! you can constrain urself physically but mentally mind still wavers. Heck , it happens in gurudwara if a hot guy passed by you . Very tough indeed !

You should read nitnem sahib (daily).. It mentions the char padaraths in it. Kaam generally means wish (manokaamna).. Aartha is also blessed on Sikhs if they give dasvand, then their income also increases. As for the last issue, I sadly do not know what to advise you to do. Probably just marry another guy through court marriage and then both be blessed with amrit together? Since I think couples from different background religions who convert to sikhi do not get an anand karaj if they are new to sikhi now, since they are already married. Not sure though, just my opinion.

Are you comparing your family hindu wedding to the illegitimate couple of homosexuals?  On one hand you want your family actions to be the benchmark and in the next few hours you want to compare them to homosexuals couples.  Let me remind you, sex outside of marriage is a kurehit and this would mean no such thing as homosexual amritdharis actively living as homosexuals.  Also no such thing as homosexual amritdharis as couples because homosexuals can't get married in Sikhi by Anand Karaj and any other marriage ceremony is not a replacement to make them a legitimate couple according to Sikhi.  I know this is a lot for you to digest, but take your time and don't be rash in your response.  You will only make Trump look wittier than you.

Gurbani is an ocean nobody can follow all of it.

It took many Mahapurakhs from various backgrounds n lifestyle to experience, practice & compose Gurbani.

One can choose to be Bairaagi but only through Waheguru jeeo's will you can do so not by self effort.

Most end up being Abhaagi, neither Grehasti nor Bairaagi.

For Paapi's like me Guru Arjan Dev ji gives hope -

"Says Nanak, hear my prayer, God;

I am silly, stubborn and filled with sexual desire - please, liberate me! ||4||"

Im not comparing a hindu wedding with anything when I was talking about a gay married couple.. Im not even trying to be witty, just wanted to know your opinion on that question.. But just so you know, there are married gay couples, and I just wanted to know what youd think the 5pyare would tell them if they wanted to convert to sikhism.

that's right , they also have name karan ceremony too ...  maybe your family never revealed that fact  but think about it to be married in anand Karaj  is very different from the Hindu ceremony one binds you equally  to Akal Purakh as your Husband lord the other diminishes the woman to daasi of her human pati , never afforded her own right to salvation oly told that she has to serve her husband in this life (and I guess the other six janams) before being born as a man to get chance at mukhti.

Totally different scenarios

Makes sense! I understood about the naming ceremony is given to new people too, but I havent heard about anand karaj being needed as well to the already married. Im probably never going to marry anyone though.

We are not talking about individuals.  This is a talk on what Gurmat says to do.  Whenever your fanatical liberal agenda is shown in it's true light, you attempt to change the topic.  Stick to the topic we were discussing for once.

You are diluting the terms to fit your lifestyle as the standard of Gurmat.  Grehasti jeevan does not tell a person to increase love with the wife, but sang (company) as Sri Guru Tegh Badadur Sahib ji said to Gobind Rai at a young age.

What does liberation mean?  Liberation is achieved by following the Guru's path, which includes removing sexual desires between husband and wife.  A person who is indulging in sexual desire can't be liberated.  Anand Karaj is not a licence to go to town on the spouse.  Liberation means to take the shackles off of attachment between husband and wife.  Husband and wife are worldly relations as Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib ji says.  A husband and wife who follow the teachings of the Guru are in a true relationship because they are following the Guru.  This type of husband and wife left behind the teachings of vedas, which are lost in the 3 gunas.   

If you were truly following Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji, you would ask Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji how do I remove my silliness, stubbornness and sexual desire: 

gun gwvq Acuq AibnwsI kwm k®oD ibnsy md FITy ]

Singing the Glorious Praises of the imperishable, indestructible Lord, sexual desire, anger and stubborn pride vanish.

 
There is your answer.  If a addict never admits he has a problem, then how would he get rid of something that doesn't exist in his mind?

According to Gurbani, anybody can attain liberation whether Grehasti or Bairaagi.

Being Grehasti obviously means people can, had & are having sex !

Adharam is extra marital sex.

If one takes path of a Bairaagi then he should remain detached.

Now most wannabes remain engrossed in Moh & Maya, making them Abhaagis or namesake Bairaagis.

People really miss the point, don't they? 

Ok adultery is bad, extra marital is haraam. But what if a person never had a chance to get married? 

What is extra marital for him? Its a cruel joke for him. First you deny him right to marry, and acceptance in society, then you say if he ever had sex, its sinful . 

 

If homosexuals are supposed to be celibate because their sex doesn't lead to reproduction, then it beggers the belief how is sex with contraceptives in heterosexual couples any different than gay sex? Both lead to same end point : no reproduction!

If you would like to marry your brother, that is your choice.  Keep the topic on point.

    • And who decides, the parameters of what educated, independent thinking is.. We seem to have a big problem with accepting free thinking on this forum never mind on a structural state level  Are we suggesting theocratic rule like Saudi Arabian, Iran model? 
    • But therein lies the rub.. The desire to create a homogeneous 'panthic community' means becoming like any other panth..  Surely as the activity of khalsa aid demonstrate that if we go back to sikhi roots and be selfless then the philosophy of bani stops being a abstract concept and something tangible..  If we don't aspire as individuals to truly accept 1 onkaar and don't challenge ourselves to destroy our desire to create a example of pure love no ifs no buts then surely we have already compromised? 
    • Prashaad is blessed and should not be wasted. If, whilst serving, it drops on the floor, it should be picked up and eaten. It should not be wasted.    You know for next time to maybe double wrap the prashad, or give it to the sangat and let them put it in the bag themselves. 
    • I don't think so. It is good we are focusing on 'panthic' issues, because Sarbat Da Bhalla will automatically follow from the strength and unity of the Sikh Qaum.  A powerful, cohesive Sikh Panth is the best thing for the future of the world in my opinion. Once we are in a position to carry Guru Granth Sahib Ji's Jot to all four corners of the Earth, once our religion becomes as well known as Christianity or Islam, I do believe the oppressed peoples of the world - women, the poor, lower orders/castes, victimized minority groups - will flock to it because they will see it is clearly superior to Islam/Hinduism/western neoliberalism, the ideologies which keep them in chains.  Sikhi is the only major world religion which was founded on the premise of overturning tyranny and social injustice, which is why I think Sikhi speaks to the soul of the Modern Age better than crusty relics like Christianity, Islam and especially Bahmanism ever could or ever will again.  Sarbat Da Bhalla will come easily once we complete the monumental task of getting our internal affairs in order.
