It is one of the three goals of Hindu life. It is what the west called ‘erotica’. It is the one we consider sacred. It is Kama. And this is its manual—The Kama Sutra.
A compilation of seven books, starting with the description of general principles of mortal life that Brahma laid down when he created men and women—dharma (fulfillment of duty), artha (accumulation of wealth), and kama (pleasurable experience of the five senses, to moving forward about the ‘right’ way of life where it talks about many issues including the behaviour and actions during copulation between a man and a woman. A 4th century guide to a virtuous and gracious living, still valid in the 21 century and beyond.    
Vatsyayana unbashingly talks scientifically and spiritually about what is a taboo today, and emphasises that this book is a must for both men and women. It lays more stress on the fact that women, especially, should be knowledgeable in the arts complimentary to Kama Sutra
The physical beauty of Khajuraho is the manifestation of the beauty trapped in this book, which the west unknowingly calls the ‘manual of sex’. 
Discover the knowledge of the gods translated for the mortals by the mortals.


Believed To Have Lived Around 4th Century CE In Pataliputra (during The Gupta Period), Vatsyayana, A Brahmin By Birth, Was A Philosopher And A Diligent Academician. He Lived The Life Of A Religious Student, And Spent His Time Engaged In The Contemplation Of The Highest Deity. Besides Transcribing The ‘Kama Sutra’, More Than 300 Years After The Shastras Had Already Been Passed Down, He Also Transcribed The Nyaya Sutras, An Ancient Indian Philosophy Text That Was Composed By The Buddha In The 2nd Century BCE. His Academic Interest In Sex As A Medium To Spiritual Attainment Gave The World A Comprehensive Guide On Importance Of Poise, Balance, And Control In All Phases Of Life Including Bodily Pleasures. 
The Kama Sutra Does Not Claim To Be An Original Work, But A Compilation. After Compiling The Work, Vatsyayana Had Said, “After Reading And Considering The Works Of Babhravya And Other Ancient Authors, And Thinking Over The Meaning Of The Rules Given By Them, This Treatise Is Composed According To The Precepts Of The Holy Writ, For The Benefit Of The World.” 
His Other Notable Works Are ‘Nyaya Sutra’, And ‘Bhashya’.
