Book Description

MANY items of the Hindu Sexology-Kama Sutras-are based on empirical functional psychology. But they can be better interpreted through physiology and endocrinology. This I have attempted to do in this book. Comparative marriage customs may reveal the social behaviour of the peoples concerned. Social and sexual patterns are peculiar to many tribes. So tribal studies are needed to understand and explain them. Comparative philology may show many social and tribal intrusions. That between Chinese Taoism and Buddhistic-Hindu Tantricism, there is a close relation- ship, nobody will deny. But that Buddhistic-Hindu mystic sex-worship is based on Taoist magic and alchemy may be revealing to many. Though from time immemorial, in ancient Egypt Osiris and Isis, in Assyria Asshur and Ishtar, in Phoenicia Baal-Ashor or Asher (Maloch, Atis and Adonis) and Astoreth or Ashera, in Iran Mithra and Ardvisura Anahita, in Scandinavia Freyr and Freya, in Lithuania Kaws and Milda, in Etruria Mutunus (even among the Roman matrons it was the custom to make the newly married bride to sit on the phallus fascinum, anciently an emblem in Dionosian mysteries, for her defloration) and Mutuna, in ancient Greece Priapus (the male generative power personified as a god, son of Dionysus) and Aphrodite, in ancient Rome Subigus and Prema (whose statuette in coition was hung over the nuptial bed of the newly married couple to make their union pleasant and fruitful), in India Śiva and Sakti (Linga and Yoni symbols of male and female principles in nature), were worshipped as fertility gods and goddesses to promote the fertility of plants, herds and men. But the Taoists alone formulated a seductive magic formula of coitus reservatus, combined with bodily message and deep breathing, for rejuvenation and prolongation of life.
