Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has released its sixth report in the State of the Panth series titled Sikhi & Sexuality, exploring how Sikhi has influenced the collective behavior of the Sikhs when it comes to sex, pleasure, and procreation. Sexuality is not something that is frequently discussed in the Panth (Sikh Collective). The report clearly outlines Sikh perspectives on major topics like lust, marriage, homosexuality, and polygamy. What does Bani say about sexuality? How do we differentiate between sex and sexuality? How have colonialism, nationalism, and other historical processes influenced the Sikh understanding of sexuality? What role, if any, should institutions play in supporting Sikhs of all gender identities and sexual orientations? Join us in conversation with Harinder Singh and Jasleen Kaur as we try to understand sexuality in the context of a Sikh worldview, from a Gurmat (Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).
