Sexual life in ancient India; a study in the comparative history of Indian culture by Johann Jakob Meyer( Book )

54 editions published between 1915 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of "Sexual Life in Ancient India" is to give a true and vivid account of the life of woman in India based on material found in the country's two great ancient epics--the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. According to the author, these works, which are among the world's greatest literary achievements, are not only a kind of moral encyclopedia (whose influence in India continues to this day), they also provide valuable sources of information about the relations of the sexes, and the concepts underlying those relations. The book's twenty-two chapters focus on such subjects as life in marriage, the pleasures of sex, love, the ideal woman, the importance of woman, and the power of woman. Through these subjects and careful, constant reference to the epics, Professor Meyer demonstrates how the Hindu, in his views on woman and love, has from very early times shown a capacity for living in earnest. -- From publisher's description
