Sage Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra is an ancient treatise on man-woman relationships. Though written over 2000 years ago it is relevant even today since,of all life's expressions,sexual gratification remains one of the most fundamental. The Kama Sutra examines the life force or prana of which the physical and the spiritual are equally potent aspects. While exploring the art of fulfilling sexual relationships,it stresses equally on self-reliant and consideration for the partner. This Book takes a contemporary look at the Kama Suta. Rare miniatures, gouache and tantric paintings and sculptures on ivory panels from the renowned archives of Fitzwilliam Museum, university of Cambridge, UK, are published for the first time: other works-suffused with the erotic-are selected from Victoria & Albert Museum, London. UK; Werner Forman Archive, London, UK and the collection of Lance Dane. The introduction by Chaturvedi Badrinath guides the reader towards the appropriate mindset required to imbibe the magic of the text. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
