culture during the time of Mahabharat is quite shocking!

oThere was a stage in our histry

oThere was a stage in our histry, when there were no social rules formed for sex between men and women.
That was the time when no cared about relationships they shared with other human beings before having sex
with them. This is because there were no such relationships back then. Having sex with any woman, having
open sex anywhere anytime like animals, having sex with young girls and even with animals was a common
thing with humans. Sex was wayward that time.

In chapter 63 of Adiparva in Mahabharat, open sex between Rishi Parashar and Satyavati Matsyangandha has
been described. Also, in the 104th chapter of Adiparva, it is mentioned that son of Utthat, Dirghtama started
having sex with a woman in front of all the people.

Kautbik sex (incest) is mentioned in ancient texts. It is mentioned 'Harivansh' that the daughter of sage
Vasishta, Shatrupa believed him to be her husband and therefore used to have sex with him. In the same
grantha it is mentioned that Daksha gave her daughter to his father, Brahmadev and Narada was born. As
mentioned in Haribhavishya, Indra dev had sex with his great grandson’s (Janmejay) wife Vapushtma.

Ulupi clearly says

In Mahabharat’s Adiparva, it is said that if an unmarried woman expresses her desire to have sex, it should be
fulfilled. If her wish is not fulfilled, it means death of religion. Ulupi clearly says to Arjuna that to satisfy a
woman, it not against religion to sleep with her for one night.

Urvashi told Arjuna

When Urvashi told Arjuna that if the Paurva Vansh’a any son or grandson wants to have sex with any woman
of her family including her, it is not insulting religion. However, Arjuna did not accept it and Urvashi called
him impotent. It is also mentioned in religious scriptures that sage
Agastya had kept his daughter with the King of Vidarbha and when she reached age of marriage, he married
his own daughter.

tenth mandal of Rig Veda,

In the tenth mandal of Rig Veda, the sexual conversation between Yam and Yami is mentioned. Here, Yami
expresses her desire to have sex with her own brother. When Yam refuses to do so, she insists and says that a
sister remaining unsatisfied despite her brother being around, so what is her brother’s use? This clearly
signifies the sexual relationship between brothers and sisters in ancient times.

Mahabharta mentiones in Adiparva

Mahabharta mentiones in Adiparva that having sex with any women is not bad and is a normal behavior.
Relationships are names given to know people.

Duryodhan had made Karna the king of Angdesh. In this desh, woman and children were sold.

Sexual morality
In the Vedas one finds matters relating to seduction, incest, abortion, conjugal
infidelity, deception, and robbery as well. Prostitution was common and the
prostitutes were called warrangnas. There are some very obscene passages in the
Vedas. For example in Rig Veda read the lewd conversation between Pushan and
Surya (Rig Veda 10.85.37) and again a similar conversation in Ashwamedha section
of Yajur Veda. We will not
Refer to Mandal10. Puranas are full of stories depicting open sexual perversities
which we cannot record here and must avoid the stink of immorality.
go into the details of such conversations which may be offensive but we will refer to
some of them here briefly. Brahma is considered to be the greatest spiritual leader of
the Hindu Trinity and yet if we read Shiv Puran (Ruder Samhita 2 Sati Khand 2
Chapter 19), we find him mentioned as a cheat and a sex maniac. Even at the time of
the marriage of Shiva and Parvati Brahma displayed his sexual depravity openly. In
the same Granth another lewd story is recorded concerning Shiva and Parvati.
Reading the Hindu Shastras and Puranas we find that relation of the sexes among the
Vedic Aryans and gods was not ideal. Obviously these standards were later followed
by the followers of Hinduism. More than one man shared one woman and none of
them had any exclusive rights on the wife. Devas molested the wives of the Rishis or
sexually attacked the wives of their colleague Devas. Rape of Ahalya, the wife of
Rishi Gautama, by Indra is well known and Indra was the prominent god of the Rig
Veda. In Adhyaya 100 of the Vana Parva of the Mahabharata we read that Rishi
Vibhandaka cohabited with a female deer and as a result of this intercourse Rishi
Shranga was born. In Adhyaya 118 of the Adi Parva of the Mahabharata Rishi Vyas
gives us a similar

The popular belief is that Lord Brahma produced the Vedas. He is said to have
established sexual relationship with his daughter Saraswati
The story is also found in Mahabharat. It may have come from Greece where
goddess Medusa was similarly ravished by god Poseidon.
story of Pandu, the father of the Pandus, who received a curse from Rishi Kadam.
According to the story Rishi Kadam issued a curse because he was engaged in sexual
intercourse with a deer when Pandu disturbed him. In Adhyaya 63 of the Adi Parva of
the Mahabharata Rishi Parashara had sexual intercourse with Satyavati, (also called
Matsya Gandha – fisherman’s girl) in public and in broad day light. In Adhyaya 104
of the Adi Parva, Rishi Dirgha is stated to have staged a similar scene in public.

(a) Incest:-
Father-daughter incest occurs in the story of Brahma and his daughter.
Brahma married his own daughter Satarupa.
“Wise, teaching, following the thought of Order, the sonless gained a grandson
from his daughter”. Fain, as a sire, to see his child prolific, he sped to meet her with
an eager spirit‖.
[RigVeda III .31.1-2]. Hiranyakashpu married his daughter Rohini. Vashista
married Shatrupa, Janhu married Janhavi, and Surya married Usha.
Rape was common. Some examples are Manu-Illa, Surya raped Kunti. Vishnu raped
Jalandhar‘s wife (Varinda) who later committed suicide. Love-lorn Vishnu did not
even let her go after death. He bathed in her ashes, bereaved her death for days and
cried loudly.
(c) Sons married their mothers
There are cases where father and son married the same woman; Brahma is the father
of Manu. Manu married his mother
Sharadha . Pushan too married his mother.

(d)Marriage with sisters

The discussion of open sex between a brother and sister (Yama and Yami in Rig Veda
Mandal X) The description of sexual relationship between Yam and Yami (Brother
and sister) is lewd, lascivious, and bawdy. It is a spur to carnality. They did not get
married but discussed open sexual relations. From their discussion it is clear that in
those days sisters could discuss sexual matters with their brothers and even marry
them. Brahma had three sons Marichi, Daksha and Dharma and one daughter. Daksha
is stated to have married the daughter of Brahma who was his sister (see Adi Parva of
the Mahabharata). Other instances are Purukutsa and Narmada, Viprachiti and
Simhika, Nahusa and Viraja, Sukra and Usanas, Amavasu and Go, Amsumat and
Yasoda, Suka and Pivari.

Pushan is the lover of his sister Achoda. “Attendant on the Blessed Dame the Blessed
one hath come: the Lover followeth his Sister. [Rig Veda X.3.3]

Agni is the lover of his own sister. ―Pūsan, who driveth goats for steeds, the strong
and Mighty, who is called His Sister’s lover, will we laud‖.
[Rig Veda VI.55.4] Ashvins were the sons of Savitar and Usha who were brother
and sister. Krishna was married with his uncle’s Satrajit’s daughter and Krishna’s
son Priduman was married with his matenal uncle Rukmaya’s daughter.
(e) Selling & hiring of women:
There is evidence that the ancient Aryans also sold their women (wives and
daughters). When a daughter was sold her marriage was known as Arsha marriage.
This was done through Go-Mithuna (giving away one cow and one bull to the girls‘
father as price )― When (the father) gives away his daughter according to the rule,
after receiving from the bridegroom, for (the fulfillment of the sacred law, a cow and
a bull or two pairs, that is named the Arsha rite”.
(Manu Simrti 3.29)
“Some call the cow and the bull given as on Arsha wedding ‗a gratuity‘ but that is
wrong. The acceptance of the fee great or small is a sale of the daughter.” (Manu II)
Women were also rented to others for cohabitation. In the Mahabharata we read that
Madhavi was the daughter of King Yayati. Yayati made a gift of her to Galwa Rishi.
Galwa rented her out to three kings one after the other. After the third, Madhavi was
returned to Galwa. She was now given by Galwa to his Guru Vishvamitra.
Vishvamitra kept her till he begot a son. After this he returned her to her father.

(f) Niyoga – mistreatment of women

Niyoga is the Aryan name for a system under which a wedded woman was legally
permitted to beget a son from another person, not her husband. There was no limit to
the number of men a woman could go for Niyoga. Madhuti and Ambika had one
Niyoga each. Saradandayani had three. Vayusistasva was permitted to have 7 and Vali
is known to have allowed as many as 17 Niyogas to one of his wives. With the
consent of the husband a Niyoga could last from one night to twelve years or more.
Jatila-Gautami had 7 husbands. In The Mahabharata Daropadi had five husbands and
Pandu allowed his wife Kunti to have four Niyogas. Karna was the premarital first
born brother of the Pandus through Nyoga.

Abduction and disrobing of women in public is evident in the Mahabharta. Daropadi

was disrobed in front of her near relatives.

In Shiv Puran Ruder Samhita (4.12) we read that Shiva ran after the wives of the
Rishis completely naked. On account of this indecency he had to lose his male organ.
In the temples at Jagan Nath, Konark, and Bhuneshwar of Orissa there are statues of
naked women in very objectionable poses. Similar poses are openly depicted on the
outside of the temples at Khajuraho. Even Mahatma Gandhi was of the opinion that
KhajurahoTemples should be demolished.
Such stories do not lead to spiritualism or to ideal sexual behavior which is expected
from religious leaders. It is for this reason that Gurbani says, “Dirty was Brahma and
dirtier still was the moon. Shiva, Shankra and Mahesha too did not fare well.”
(g) Gambling
Gambling is made respectable in the Vedas. It was developed to a science by the
Aryan civilization. Krita, Treta, Dwapara and Kali were the names of the dices used
by the Aryans at gambling. The luckiest of the dices was called Krita and the unlucky
one was called Kali. Treta and Dwapara were intermediate dices. Kingdoms and even
their wives were offered by the Aryans as stakes at gambling. Their examples were
later followed by the common Hindus. For example King Nala staked his kingdom
and lost it. Later the Pandus staked their kingdom and their wife Daropadi and lost
Manu did not approve gambling or betting. He goes against the Vedas when he says,
―gambling and betting should be suppressed.” (Manu IX 221-222)

(h) Drinking
All Vedic Rishis used to drink Soma and similar intoxicating drinks.
It was a part of an Aryan’s ritual. There were numerous Soma sacrifices among the
ancient Aryans. Females (Even Brahmin women) too indulged in drinking because it
was a respectable practice and not regarded as a sin or a vice. Ramayana in Uttar
Khand admits that Sri Ram Chander and Seeta too drank wine so did Krishna and
Arjuna. The Udyoga Parva of the Mahabharata says: “Arjuna and Shri krishna
drinking wine made from honey and being sweet-scented and garlanded, wearing
splendid clothes and ornaments, sat on a golden throne studded with various jewels.”
It had spread to all classes but Shudras were restricted from drinking Soma. They
drank Sura which was an ordinary wine sold in the market. According to Rig Veda
10.86 and 13-14 Indra used to eat Meat and was also a drunkard.
