Summary

Summary

Conquer your senses by leaving nothing unexperienced Tantra embraces sexual energy as the path to spiritual wisdom, with each partner worshipping the divine in the other. For more than a thousand years, India has produced a wealth of erotic literature and art, including the best known of them all, the "Kama Sutra." Drawing on a range of works, including some unavailable in English, an Indian scholar brings together a rare collection of material from the classical, medieval, and modern period. Lavish illustrations of statues, paintings, ivory combs and silk hangings, and other examples of the most beautiful arts appear, many of which had until now been reserved for ritual purposes. A spiritually enriching guide to the erotic mysteries of Tantra.
