pāhi māḿ paramātmaḿs te

preṣaṇenāsṛjaḿ prajāḥ

imā yabhituḿ pāpā

upākrāmanti māḿ prabho

SYNONYMS

pāhi — protect; māmme; parama-ātmanO Supreme Lord; te — Your; preṣaṇena — by order; asṛjamI created; prajāḥ — living beings; tāḥ imāḥ — those very persons; yabhitumto have sex; pāpāḥ — sinful beings; upākrāmantiare approaching; māmme; prabhoO Lord.

TRANSLATION

Lord Brahmā, approaching the Lord, addressed Him thus: My Lord, please protect me from these sinful demons, who were created by me under Your order. They are infuriated by an appetite for sex and have come to attack me.

PURPORT

It appears here that the homosexual appetite of males for each other is created in this episode of the creation of the demons by Brahmā. In other words, the homosexual appetite of a man for another man is demoniac and is not for any sane male in the ordinary course of life.
