Site Introduction (2012): It is interesting that the Kama Sutra comes from India, which also contributed to the central foundation of philosophy - the realization of the dynamic unity of reality. We can now use the rules of science to confirm this. Simply deduce the most Simple Science Theory of Reality which then correctly deduces fundamentals of Metaphysics, Physics & Philosophy (see links on left of page).

The video relates to our Evolutionary Philosophy of Human Sexuality pages. Clearly sexual reproduction is central to evolution and the survival of the species thus our strong sexual instinct. However, many people have poor sexual relationships founded on harmful myths and customs, clearly knowing the truth about our diverse (and very adaptable) sexual evolution is important.

Kama Sutra: The Art of Love (Adult Only!) - The Kamasutra is ultimately about wisdom and our creative cultivation. It covers the three aims of life, virtue (dharma), prosperity (artha), and love (kama). While some of their customs now seem dated and strange, nonetheless there is a great deal of wisdom and guidance. We hope you find it interesting and useful (and put this knowledge into good practice!)

The Importance of Truth for Human Individuals & Society - We have evolved to fear snakes and not cars - yet cars kill far more people. i.e. Our primitive instincts can delude us / cause us harm - clearly truth is most important for our future survival. And if we want to continue to survive on this now badly damaged planet it is clear that our human societies must be founded on truth and reality . So enjoy the sexuality, but also cultivate a beautiful mind by reading on truth and reality. It is simple and obvious once known, and really quite marvelous to understand how you exist in the universe.

Support an open honest discussion of our Sexual Evolution (anchor link to heading lower of page).
We are now listed as one of the Top Philosophy Websites on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week, and rank in the top 20 in Google for many academic and sexuality search terms - so we just need a bit of help to get in the top five. Help liberate humanity from the dark ages of religious myths and sexual customs that cause us harm.

Kamasutra History of Kamasutra

Praised be the three aims of life, virtue (dharma), prosperity (artha), and love (kama), which are the subject of this work.
(The Complete Kamasutra, 1994)

'Praised be the three aims of life, virtue (dharma), prosperity (artha), and love (kama), which are the subject of this work.' (Kama Sutra Quote and Picture)Ancient Indian sages composed the Kama Shastra on the basis of the Vedas. The first formulation of the Kama Shastra, or the rules of love, is attributed to Nandi, Shiva's companion. It is preserved today in the form of the 'Kamasutra' written down by the sage Vatsyayana sometime between the first and sixth century A.D. The Kama Sutra is recognised as the true surviving text of the original Kama Shastra. Vatsyayana states that he only quotes and condenses the previous work and refers to himself in third person (Vatsyayana thinks ..) when expressing his opinion.

The Kama Shastra was one of three ancient Indian texts concerning the aims of life. It should be understood within the context of the Artha Shastra and the Dharma Shastra (which were written in Sanskrit, seventh century B.C.). As Alain Danielou confirms;

Erotic Kama Sutra Art StatuesLife necessitates three kinds of activity: to assure its survival, its means of existence, and its nourishment; to realise its reproduction according to forms of activity generally connected with sexuality; and, lastly, to establish rules of behaviour that allow different individuals to perform their roles within the framework of the species. In human society, this is represented as three necessities, three aims of life: material goods (artha) assure survival; erotic practice (kama) assures the transmission of life; and rules of behaviour, a moral nature (dharma), assure the cohesion and duration of the species. (The Complete Kamasutra, translated by Alain Danielou, 1994)

So with religion, morality (dharma) and material success (artha), kama is the third goal of human life. Kama is further defined as;
Kama is the enjoyment of appropriate objects by the five senses of hearing, feeling, seeing, tasting and smelling, assisted by the mind together with the soul. The ingredient in this is a peculiar contact between the organ of sense and its object, and the consciousness of pleasure which arises from that contact is called Kama. (Kamasutra, 1883)

Kama is to be learnt from the Kama Sutra (aphorisms on love) and from the practice of citizens. (Kamasutra, 1883)

The ancient Indians appear to be very good evolutionists, as it is clear from evolution that sex and survival are the two most fundamental forces driving our continued existence. Further, the Kama Sutra is an evolutionary work in that it promotes the cultivation of skills to become a well rounded / well evolved individual with healthy, intimate relationships with others. As Alain Danielou agrees;

The Kama Sutra is not a pornographic work. First and foremost, it is a picture of the art of living for the civilised and refined citizen, completing in the sphere of love, eroticism and the pleasures of life. (The Complete Kamasutra, Alain Danielou 1994)

Kama Sutra Philosophy Sixty Four Arts of Kamasutra

As the sixty-four arts are respected, are charming, and add to the talent of women, they are called by the Acharyas dear to women. A man skilled in the sixty-four arts is looked upon with love by his own wife, by the wives of others, and by courtesans. (Kamasutra)

The aim of the Sixty Four Arts of the Kama Sutra is not merely to be a good wife, but to be a skillful, playful, understanding, refined, sexual, beautiful and intelligent woman. The Kama Sutra also expresses cultivation of the male, his understanding of female nature and the importance of cultivating sensual moods and intimacy. The ancient Indians show great attention to detail of smell, light, music, food, drink and touch before intercourse can begin.

A public woman, endowed with a good disposition, beauty and other winning qualities, and also versed in the above arts, obtains the name of a Ganika, or public woman of high quality, and receives a seat of honour in an assemblage of men. She is, moreover, always respected by the king, and praised by learned men, and her favour being sought for by all, she becomes an object of universal regard.

The daughter of a king too as well as the daughter of a minister, being learned in the above arts, can make their husbands favourable to them, even though these may have thousands of other wives besides themselves.

And in the same manner, if a wife becomes separated from her husband, and falls into distress, she can support herself easily, even in a foreign country, by means of her knowledge of these arts. Even the bare knowledge of them gives attractiveness to a woman, though the practice of them may be only possible or otherwise according to the circumstances of each case.

A man who is versed in these arts, who is loquacious and acquainted with the arts of gallantry, gains very soon the hearts of women, even though he is only acquainted with them for a short time.

The Kama Sutra of Vatsayayana, Sir Richard Burton, translator (1883)

Physics (and thus all human knowledge) evolved from Newton's concepts of particles and forces in Space and Time, which assumes the existence of four separate things. This causes many problems for Humanity because the necessary connection between these things is unknown. Einstein failed to solve this with his unified field theory of matter which describes reality in terms of matter-energy (fields) in space-time. The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) solves these problems by describing Reality in terms of One thing, Space, existing with the Properties of a Wave Medium. Matter is formed from Spherical Standing Waves in Space which cause the 'particle' effect at their Wave Center. Time is due to the Wave Motion (activity) of Space. Forces / fields are caused by the interaction of the Spherical In and Out Waves with other matter in Space which changes the wave velocity and thus location of the Wave-Center (and which we 'see' as a 'force accelerating a particle').

George Berkeley, Philosopher: Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of scepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words. (George Berkeley, 1710) Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of skepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words.
