      Incest, the practice of marrying one's sister was very much prevailed in ancient India.

      Incest was common among several tribes of pre-Aryan India and is still found in various parts of the country. Thus, the marriage customs of the panchama baiga of central India permit the union of grandparents and grandchild, while the Ernadan male of Malabar takes his eldest daughter as his second wife.

      The Hindu levirate system, known as Noyoga, was a sort of incest, practiced for the sake of raising offsprings, though it appears to have been extended beyond legitimate bounds. As examples of incestuous marriages in Hindu mythology may be cited the union of Yama and Yami; Manu son of Vivasvat and his sister Sraddha; Prajapati and his daughter Ushas; Pushan and his sister Surya; Sukra and his THREE sisters; Suka and Pivari; Satrajita and his TEN sisters; Nahusha and his sister Viraja. Purukutsa's queen Narmada after her husbands death, obtained a son through her own brother. Draupada may have married his own sister to obtain Dhrishtadymuna and Draupadi. Kaisalya wife of Dasaratha was probably also his sister; and more than one authority has suggested that Rama and Sita were actually brother and sister.

      Dr Sarkar thinks that the Rig-Veda furnishes rishi sanction (method) for the incestuous ties between a man and his sister, or even mother. The vedic rite called GOSAVA involved union with ones own mother, sister or female relative through which one secured entry into heaven. The Jaiminiya Brahmana relates that king Janaka of Videha, when he understood its (i.e. rituals) nature, refused to undertake the rite, but a Sibi king did perform it, acting out all the requirements.

      Certain episodes in the Epics point to an established dynastic custom among the Pandavas and Kauravas of sons succeeding to the seraglios of their father on his death, and it was apparently in keeping with ancient usage for princes to consort with all the father's wides except their own mothers. Upadhya after citing several instances of incestuous practices among the ancient Indian people justly concludes, `In face of these numerous data, it futile to hold that incest is un-Vedic'. Whatever reasons the early Aryans had for despising the natives, they could not despise them on the score of their incestuousness.

      The promiscuity that permeated the later extremist Tantrik cults demanded incestuous relations with one's sister, daughter, and mother, in antinomian rites that were believed to be especially pleasing to the goddess.

      Salaam bro
      What does this prove? Bro, you mustn't attack other religions because they will do the same to you. What's true is true, but who are we to expose darker corners, I think it's better that we look at ourselves before others, no?

      I dont think I have heard of incest in hinduism before, and it most certainly isnt in practice among hindus of today.

      What is the source of this article? Could it be from a hate site?

      I'd certainly like to know how the article comments on social customs in pre-aryan india, when there are absolutely no available records for the same, if you exclude the indus valley civilization.

      More comments after we know that the article is a genuine one, and not from a hate site.

      PakiPrince, this is a very informative article and lemme thank you for posting it. Is it possible that you can post the source of the article? i'll be really grateful to you for that.

      This is the first time i am hearing that this practice existed among indians too. I know couple of ancient societies where it was pretty common. Like among the farming class of ancient Rome where property was inherited by women as well as men and where the relationship between land and people was particularly tight, brother-sister marriages were not only common but also preferred.
      And by the same token, among the Royal families of Inca empire, ancient egypt and hawaii, brother-sister marriages were kinda obligatory. Members of those families were considered semi-divine and those marriages were held to preserve their very sacredness/godliness/purity.

      And there were some societies in ancient Arabia which praticed the same custom....But about india i am hearing for the first time...so please be generous and post the source of this article for me...

      Thanx in advance!
      Naik

      Be it politics or not, you should provide a link to back up what you say.
      As i can say you are just making all of this up.
      Plus i agree with mushi, there is no reason to insult a religion here.
      What is the religion forum for???? http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

      Yep CM, this doesn't really belong here. I'm moving it and I'm sure GFQ will gladly take on the responsibility of such a fascinating topic.

      Cmhttp://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/rolleyes.gif You had 'here' in bold--any special reason?

      I don't think that the religion forum is a place where people can feel free to insult another's faith whenever the fancy strikes them, or for that matter i don't think that there is any need or reason to do so anywhere.


      Xtreme *makes a face* indeed, this is an extremely fascinating article. Pakprince16, will you be so kind as to provide us with a source?

      Hindu religious books do have references of incest. All though these references are correct, it is important to remember that most of the names you have mentioned are not considered to be humans. They are gods or devas. For example, Bramha is supposed to have married his daughter (or perhaps granddaughter). Bramha is considered to be the creator in Hinduism. And hence his daughter is not really a “daughter” but rather a creation.

      These cases of incest are present in the vedas, you should know that it does NOT occur in society today. Hindus are not even allowed to marry their cousins.

      "A woman has got to be able to say, and not feel guilty, 'Who am I, and what do I want out of life?' She mustn't feel selfish and neurotic if she wants goals of her own, outside of husband and children"

      i think indian kids have a pledge 'all indians are my brothers and sisters.' and except likes of rajiv gandhi, most of them end up marrying indians. this proves prevalence of incest in indians..

      Although only limited in south like Tamil & telugu uncles ,khalo & cha cha do marry there neices.ZZ,you can enlighten about that ,Some konkini ,gult have told it is allowed & acceptable to marry neices .

      A hindu can always marry his cousin by declaring himself muslim.btw ,there is no special status registration card for muslim.if muslims are crticized to have special previliges ,any hindu can have 4 wives,& so called privileges just by declaring himself to be one.It happens quiet often,kishore kumar just to marry inspite of being married with living wife married madhubala &became Abdulla muslim for convenience,
      Queer,go sleep,i know you r going to comment some stupid comment whole night about my madhubala post --haine na.Lol he he he
