Item description for Conjugal Love in India: Ratisastra and Ratiramana. Text, Translation, and Notes (Sir Henry Wellcome Asian Series, 1) by Kenneth G. Zysk, Max Lucado, S. D. Schindler, Derek Hockridge, Zhenli He, Annelise Anderson, Arthur Nersesian & Scott Silsby...

The purpose of Ratistra was to provide instruction and advice to young Hindu couples before and after they cohabit as a couple. The desired outcome of lovemaking has always been, according to Hindu law and custom, the production of male issues. Conjugal love or "Ratistra" is the means to assure that auspicious result.

Kenneth Zysks Conjugal Love in India is a study of traditional Hindu ideas about love in the domestic abode, and deals with the two principal Sanskrit treatises on the subject, Ratistra and Ratiramana. These two works, leaving no stone unturned, cover every aspect of conjugal life, from the finding and selection of a suitable pair to procreation. With an introduction that situates the doctrine of conjugal love (ratistra) and the texts that explain it in the history of brahminic scholasticism.

This work will help to elucidate aspects of Indian history and culture in the medieval and modern periods, and will provide a good basis for comparative studies with similar themes in other cultures.
