The Kama Sutra
Lawn Gnome Publishing
What is The Kama Sutra? Ancient Indian sages composed the Kama Shastra on the basis of the Vedas. The first formulation of the Kama Shastra, or the rules of love, is attributed to Nandi, Shiva’s companion. It is preserved today in the form of the ‘The Kama Sutra’ written down by the sage Vatsyayana sometime between the first and sixth century A.D. The Kama Sutra is recognized as the true surviving text of the original Kama Shastra. Vatsyayana states that he only quotes and condenses the previous work and refers to himself in third person when expressing his opinion.
The modern western world is a busy stressful place. It takes time and effort to cultivate a beautiful, sensual environment and sense of self. Many people do not have the fulfilling sexual relationship they desire. The Kama Sutra, known as the Art or Book of Love, is a guide towards deeper intimacy within, with other people and the universe. With intimacy comes less inhibitions, freedom and sharing of power. The erotic sutra is not always politically correct – but very amusing, creative, wild, though sensible and thought provoking too. If you are interested in the history of sexuality or just the sex act and wanting to experiment then the ‘Book of Love’ is well worth a browse.
