Sexual Life In Ancient India
Sexual Life In Ancient India
Description
From the Jacket: The present book provides the reader with the most faithful and valuable account of the life of woman from maidenhood to adolescence, and also of the relations of the sexes and the concepts underlying those relations that prevailed in India about fifteen hundred years back. This vivid account is based upon the immense mass of material embedded in the vast Sanskrit literature, especially the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, whereof it makes a liberal use. The book contains twenty-two chapters divided into two parts bound in a single volume.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
