Book Overview

This definitive volume is the first modern translation of Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra to include two essential commentaries: the Jayamangala of Yashodhara and the modern Hindi commentary by Devadatta Shastri. Alain Danilou spent four years comparing versions of the Kama Sutra in Sanskrit, Hindi, Bengali, and English, drawing on his intimate experience of India, to preserve the full explicitness of the original. I wanted to demystify India, he writes,...

This is a 500+ pages of Philosophy !! Not interested in easter philosophy… was not what i was wanted.. customer service was great able to refund Be more careful and read carefully what you get

I wouldn't know. I received the wrong book

I'm sure the book I received is full of great information, but I haven't read it yet. I ordered the illustrated guide pictured and received a mass market paperback written entirely in text. I'm not too interested in Eastern philosophy. I have a philosophy, I wanted illustrations to share with my wife.

The Complete Illustrated Kama Sutra

I think the book is awesome and look forward to being able to try some of it out.

Great lille book.......Loaded with useful information.

I loved this little itty bitty book. It is Erotically charged and lavishly illustrated. It's well written and in a tasteful manner. This great and informative love making manual makes a great intimate gift for that special someone. My boyfriend gave it me and reading it was like an electrical charge. I couldn't wait for him to come home. It's a small book loaded with information that can be very useful for women who want to rock someone world. I loved it and I'm planning on buying a few for christmas to pass along to my girlfriends.

Who would have thought of that?

This is strictly a book on positions. It does not get into the whole Eastern ideas behind Kama Sutra. It does provide some information...but basically it is a picture book for adults. And the pictures are gorgeous! These are full-color photos of two couples, explicit in nature, but in no way pornographic.Much of the positions shown are common, but some are quite unusual...I wouldn't have though of them. Some I would only recommend for people in fairly good shape because they are quite exhausting and not particularly comfortable for anyone with a bad back. You might want to see a chiropractor before attempting a few of these.I think it's a wonderful book to take to bed with your partner! It can be quite a bonus to add to foreplay...very stimulating pictures. I think it would be particularly appropriate to share with someone who may be uncomfortable with adult movies but interested in learning a few new "tricks".
