Maharaja Clarifies His Position on Gay Marriages

Dear Ajita Krishna Dasa Prabhu,

Hara Krishna! Jaya Srila Prabhupada!

Thank you for your words of encouragement. There is much truth in what you say and I know this because it reflects what I know in my heart to be true. I place myself at the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Krishna that through their mercy I will attain purity of devotional service. I accept that this will take time. But I have to start somewhere. It feels like a great loss but when I look at my life with honesty I can see that no happiness has ever come to me though homosexuality. Just greater attachment to the body. I also see that I have not been very loving. I have felt stunted in my ablity to be affectionate to others and maybe it is all related.

At any rate the path is clear to me now, and step by step I will walk it. Your stand on this issue is hard-hitting and uncompromising, which is painful to hear, but I have no doubt that Prabhupada would have taken a similar standpoint. And after all, what he says goes. We should mould our lives around that, not the other way around.

I thank you again.

your servant,

Dear Ajita Krishna Dasa Prabhu,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I have followed your comments in this discussion and I am impressed by the coherence or your argument. I am new to Krishna Conciousness. I am also homosexual. Prabhupada speaks of not being attached to designations, which the term ‘homosexual’ is, so let me rather say that I am someone whose mental and behavioural patterns exhibit homosexuality.

I have a partner who I have been in realtionship with for over five years now. Since comming to Prabhupada’s teachings I have felt the inclination to begin following the regulative principles that he outlines. This means celibacy in a homosexual realtionship as there is obviously no element of procreation which needs to be alowed for.

I have within me felt that my realtionship with my partner is more of a deep friendship or strong brotherly love. And it is that aspect of it that is the best part and the part I would like to see increase.
I love and care very deeply for this person and certainly want them to remain in my life. I am not interested in marriage and am prepared to give up sex life and also the ‘partner’/boyfriend part of the relationship. But he is also my best friend and as close to me as any family member, if not more so and I would not like to retract that. He too is coming to learn about Krishna Conciousness, since it is becoming so much a part of my life and that does entend to him too.

I don’t wish to be demonic. This is where things stand now. I would be interested to know your thoughts.

Hare Krishna
