The Love Teachings of Kama Sutra : With Extracts from Koka Shastra, Anaga Ranga and Other Famous Indian Works on Love
Kama Sutra is the world's classic study of the arts of love, written in about the third century AD by the mysterious sage Vatsyayana. He analyses, with the detached wisdom of old age, the possibilities of lovemaking from the first approaches to the consummation, from the sexual positions to the arrangement of furniture and the role of a go-between. His dry wit, charm and vivid language combine to give the book a relevance far beyond the perfumed world of ancient India that it describes, and create of it a humane masterpiece that contains no hint of obscenity.Kama Sutra has only been known in the English language in a nineteenth-century translation by Sir Richard Burton. The present work is an entirely new translation, made for a modern public; a public which, with Vatsyayana, understands far more clearly than did Burton's contemporaries the importance of physical pleasure to spiritual welfare.
