S Radhakrishnan Thoughts on Love and Sex

Love born of sense attraction should be transformed into love based on austerity and control.
Sex life is not inconsistent with spiritual attainment. Wild life or unrestrained passion is inconsistent with it. Sex life under law and restraint is spiritual in character. One can lead the life of a householder and yet be a hermit in temper. The Upanishad says: Enjoy by renunciation.
The goal of life is joy, serenity and not pleasure or happiness. Joy is the fulfillment of one’s nature as human being. We must affirm our being against the whole world, if need be.
The aim of life is a happy harmony of man and woman. The concept of ardhanarisvara brings it out. The wife does not belong to the husband but makes a whole with him. S Radhakrishnan
