Description

This book provides the reader with the most faithful and valuable account of the life of a woman from maidenhood to adolescence, describing in great detail the relations of the sexes and the concepts underlying those relations that prevailed in India about fifteen hundred years ago.

This vivid account is based upon the immense mass of material embedded in the vast Sanskrit literature, especially the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

The book contains twenty-two chapters divided into two parts bound in a single volume. The book describes the life of a woman in all the different stages of her life - in pleasure and grief, in war and peace, explaining in great detail her accomplishments as the ideal woman, her position, rank, importance, worth, nature, power etc. We find herein, for the first time some interesting and instructive directives on the pleasures of sex, venal love, man's sexual continence and kindered issues of sexual life.
