Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Composed by Vatsyayana in the fourth century B.C., the Kama Sutra explores sexuality as an integral part of human existence. Arguing that happiness and moral duty (dharma) depend on elaborate social ritual to satisfy the essential needs of life, the Kama Sutra describes the practices, rituals, and lore of the erotic (kama) in human relations, both straight and gay. The only truly authentic, complete translation from the ancient Sanskrit, this definitive and beautifully designed edition places this enduring work in its true historical, cultural, and religious context as a celebration of courtship and love. In addition to its famous catalog of positions, or "embraces," it features Vatsyayana's most edifying revelations on sexuality, women, marriage, pleasure, and more. A complete glossary of Sanskrit terms is included, as well as photographs of the famous 11th-century sculptures from the temple at Khajuraho.

Synopsis:

This is the only truly authentic translation of Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra from the ancient Sanskrit.
