The world’s most influential and enduring text on human sexuality
Long before The Joy of Sex, Masters and Johnson, or Dr. Ruth, there was Vatsyayana’s Kama Sutra, or “Aphorisms on Love.” This ancient text, translated from Sanskrit into English in the nineteenth century by Sir Richard Burton, along with Bhagavanlal Indragit and Shivaram Parashuram Bhide, has stood the test of time as a thoughtful treatise on the art of lovemaking.
An insightful consideration of the connections between sensual pleasure and spiritual enlightenment, this classic work presents a sincere and civilized approach to sexuality that modern readers will find refreshing and inspirational.
The Hindu philosopher Vatsyayana, believed to have lived sometime during India’s Gupta Empire (320–550 CE), compiled The Kama Sutra based on the teachings of ancient sages.
