Book Summary

In the literature of all countries, there will be found a certain number of works treating especially of love. Everywhere the subject is dealt with differently, and from various points of view.

In the present publication, it is proposed to give a complete translation of what is considered the standard work on love in Sanscrit literature, which is called the “Vatsya yana Kama Sutra,” or Aphorisms on Love, by Vatsyayana.

While the introduction will deal with the evidence concerning the date of the writing, and the commentaries written upon it, the chapters following the introduction will give a translation of the work itself.

It is, however, advisable to furnish here a brief analysis of works of the exact nature, prepared by authors who lived and wrote years after Vatsya had passed away, but who still considered him as the great authority, and always quoted him as the chief guide to Hindoo erotic literature.

Translated from the Sanskrit by The Hindoo Kama Shastra Society, COMPLETE IN SEVEN PARTS with PREFACE. INTRODUCTION AND CONCLUDING REMARKS Illustrated.

  • PART I. INDEX, AND GENERAL CONSIDERATION OF THE SUBJECT
  • PART II. OF SEXUAL UNION
  • PART III. ABOUT THE ACQUISITION OF A WIFE
  • PART IV. ABOUT A WIFE
  • PART V. ABOUT THE WIVES OF OTHER PEOPLE
  • PART VI. ABOUT COURTEZANS
  • PART VII. ON THE MEANS OF ATTRACTING OTHERS TO ONESELF

Salutation to Dharma, Artha, and the Kama, Observations on the three worldly attainments of Virtue, Wealth, and Love, On the study of the Sixty-four Arts.

On the Arrangements of a House, and Household Furniture: and about the Daily Life of a Citizen, his Companions, Amusements, etc.

About classes of Women, fit and unfit for Congress with the Citizen, and of Friends, and Messengers.

Of Sex Union, Kinds of Union according to Dimensions, Force of Desire, and Time: and on the different kinds of Love.

Of the Embrace. On Kissing. On Pressing or Marking with the Nails. On Biting, and the ways of Love to be employed with regard to Women of different countries.

On the various ways of Lying down, and the different kinds of Congress. On the various ways of Striking, and of the Sounds appropriate to them.

About Females acting the part of Males. On holding the Lingam in the Mouth. How to begin and how to end the Congress. Different kinds of Congress, and Love Quarrels.

This is not so. Sexual intercourse being a thing dependent on man and woman requires the application of proper means by them, and those means are to be learned from the Kama Shastra.

The non-application of proper means, which we see in the brute creation, is caused by their being unrestrained,

and by the females among them only being fit for sexual intercourse at certain seasons and no more, and by their intercourse not being preceded by thought of any kind.

CHAPTER I: Salutation to Dharma, Artha, and the Kama.

IN the beginning, the Lord of Beings created men and women, and in the form of commandments in one hundred thousand chapters laid down rules for regulating their existence with regard to Dharma,* Artha, and the Kama.

Some of these commandments, namely those which treated Dharma, were separately written by Swayambhu Manu; those that related to Artha were compiled by Brihaspati; and those that referred to the Kama were expounded by Nandi, the follower of Mahadeva, in one thousand chapters.

Now these “Kama Sutra” (Aphorisms on Love), written by Nundi in one thousand chapters, were reproduced by Shvetaketu, the son of Uddvalaka, in an abbreviated form in five hundred chapters, and this work was again similarly reproduced in an abridged form, in one hundred and fifty chapters, by Babhravya, an inheritance of the Punchala (South of Delhi) country.

These one hundred and fifty chapters were then put together under seven heads or parts named severally

  • 1st. Sadharana (general topics).
  • 2nd. Samprayogika (embraces, etc.).
  • 3rd. Kanya Samprayuktaka (union of males and females).
  • 4th. Bharyadhikarika (on one’s own wife).
  • 5th. Paradarika (on the wives of other people).
  • 6th. Vaisika (on courtezans).
