Summary

This is a sensitive exploration of the joys and pleasures of physical consummation. The "Kama Sutra" has often been described as "the first sexual manual" but the original Hindu script has a strong religious basis, and highlights love in all its forms.

The Kama Sutra of Vatsayana Summary

The Kama Sutra of Vatsayana: The Classic Hindu Treatise on Love and Social Conduct by Vatsayana

The 1964 publication of Sir Richard Burton's translation marked the first wide appearance in English of the Kama Sutra and was celebrated as a literary event of highest importance. As vital to an understanding of ancient Indian civilization as the works of Plato and Aristotle are to the West, the Kama Sutra has endured for 1,700 years as an indisputable classic of world literature.

Written with frankness and unassuming candor, the Kama Sutra remains one of the most readable and enjoyable of all the classics of antiquity. A work of philosophy, psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, scientific inquiry, and sexology, the Kama Sutra's importance is so great that it has at the same time both affected Indian civilization and remained an indispensable key to understanding it.
