Description

A significant contribution to India's popular ancient erotica. The art work accompanying the text is by 'Ganjifa' , India's foremost contemporary erotic artist and complements the ancient text and the very modern annotations to the text.

The Rati-Ratna-Pradipika, a minor text on erotica written in South India by a member of the Wadiyar royal family, is translated and annotated here with scholarly apparatus and academic understanding of sexual mechanics by a member of the Wadiyar royal family 350 years later. While the original text is incomplete, the treatment of the text by Sivapriyananda will make it a welcome contribution. Sivapriyananda has made a distinct departure from the traditional presentations of erotic textual and visual material.
