Description

Until the present, the only English translation of this Hindu love classsic was that of the famous English explorer Sir Richard Burton, published in 1883. Unlike Burton's version, this new translation preserves the numbered verse divisions of the original and includes two essential commentaries: the Jayamangala commentary, written in Sanskrit by Yashodhara during the middle ages, and a modern Hindi commentary by Devadatta Shastri.

Whereas Burton's Victorian reluctance to translate ceertain terms obscured our understanding of the philosophy and techniques of the Kama Sutra, Danielou has preserved the full explicitness of the original, dealing with everything .
