Item description for Kama: The Romance of Desire (Kama the Romance of Desire Series) by Sandhya Mulchandani...
This volume constitutes the first of a series of translations, with commentaries, of all the medieval Kama Shastras texts never before translated into English. Written mostly in Sanskrit verse, these works deal with ethics, the science and art of sexual liaisons, aphrodisiacs, and guidelines for begetting male children. The verses feature a loose narrative line as well, with Kamadeva as the personification of love---the Hindu Cupid. A historical gem and a fascinating literary trip, this volume serves as a gateway to a world of sensuality and wisdom.
