Rasikapriya Of Keshavadasa
Rasikapriya Of Keshavadasa
Description
From the Jacket:

What is love at the first sight? How do lovers meet, and where? How does passion affect men and women? What are remembrance, pathos, laughter and fury? Keshavadasa, the Hindi poet of love, who lived in the colourful age of Akbar, the great Mughal, gives novel answer to these questions, and many others, in Rasikapriya.

He was not only a great poet, but also a skilled courtier, a clever historian, a learned scholar, a consummate artist in language and a connoisseur of horses. He wrote about love and women with an ease and beauty known to few Hindi Poets.

Now for the first time a translation of Rasikapriya is available to English readers. There can be no more befitting comment on this great book than the one made by the poet himself: 'By reading Rasikapriya the poet himself: 'By reading Rasikapriya understanding of love increases, knowledge is gained of all love's ways, andboth pleasure and salvation are attained. As amorous men appear unhappy day after day without their beloveds, so do the poets appear without Rasikapriya.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
