Siva: The Erotic Ascetic

Siva: The Erotic Ascetic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published under the title Asceticism and Eroticism in the Mythology of Siva, this book traces the development of an Indian approach to an enduring human dilemma: the conflict between spiritual aspirations and human desires. The work examines hundreds of related myths and a wide range of Indian texts--Vedic, Puranic, classical, modern, and tribal--centering on the stories of the great ascetic, Siva, and his erotic alter ego, Kama.

Synopsis:

Originally called `Asceticism and eroticism in the mythology of Siva'.
