The Purpose of Vatsyayana’s Kamsutra The Kamsutra is often thought to be a book on tantra and tantric sex.
This is actually a misunderstanding of both tantra and the Kamsutra itself. Sanskrit literature is full of many erotic and poignant displays of physical love. In fact, in the Hindu way of life, spirituality is not against pleasure, it is seen as transcending the need for pleasure. The fundamental goal in the Hindu way of life is liberation, known as mukti or moksha.
The sexual union in Sanskrit literature was also seen as a metaphor for the union of man with cosmos, of pinda and andanda, the micro with the macro. Thus sexuality was a means towards moksha, and this was one of the pillars of tantric practice. Thus, we have many depiction of intercourse and sex on the walls of India’s ancient temples. Khajuraho and Konark are perhaps the most famous. Translations of Kamsutra Book in Hindi and English There have been many editions of the legendary Kamsutra of Vatsyayana, as it was rendered by Bhagwan lal Indraji, Sir Richard Burton and Forster F.
Most of the re-issues have been for public circulation only, catering for the pornography market of the pavement stalls of big cities. Perhaps one of the most aesthetic and beautiful editions is the one by Lance Dean, published in 1982 with the blessings of Anand. The book was published by Sanskriti Publishers. Another coincidence brought Shri Om Prakash Jain to me, when he wanted to form the culture complex called Sanskriti. My publisher Shri Gulab Vazirani, introduced him to me, and as a result Sanskriti agreed to publish this book. And our joint enthusiasm led to the emergence of the project of producing the most luscious edition of Vatsyayana’s Kamsutra, at first presented to the outside world by the pioneers, Sir Richard Burton and F. Lance Dean essentially based his translation off of Burton’s and Arbuthnot’s, though he added many corrections and the illustrations truly make the book stand out.
David May worked with Dean in this correction process. We also record our grateful thanks to Mr. David May, who has spent long hours together with Lance Dane reading and re-reading the Kamsutra text to rectify and put right the early errors in the translation of Burton and Arbuthnot. Lance Dean’s Kamsutra in Hindi and English Dean was a photographer, with a special interest in capturing love and pleasure as depicted in ancient texts. This background ensured that he found the best of the illustrations of the Kamsutra from ancient texts. I cannot forget that the process of printing has been fraught with many difficulties.
Ultimately, the book is a shared ream of many, All the partners in the undertaking, accommodated each other, through frank discussions. And a shared dream has been realised—the publication of a definitive Kamsutra, which will, I venture to suggest, become an unforgettable rare book, a sacred offering from the sources of love in Indian culture.
