Kamsutra

"As long as lips shall kiss, and eyes shall see, So long lives This, and This gives life to Thee."

Man & Woman - The perfect combination

"Kamasutra aims at defining the relationship between a man and  a women."

     "Kama" is the name of God of Love in Hindu Mythology. The  original work of Kamasutra was composed by Mallanaga Vatsyayana somewhere between 2nd - 5th  Century  AD.  The three aims of life as  per  Hinduism  are "Dharma",  "Artha" and "Kama". "Dharma" means social duty. "Artha" is collection of wealth for the family. "Kama" is  Physical Love-Making.
     "Kama Sutra" is not only the art of physical love making but  also covers  diverse topics such as the decoration of  house,  selection of wife , behavior between the husband and wife and a vast array of  other subjects. Kamasutra also answers questions such  as  : with  whom this act is to be performed, the circumstances of  performing this act and how it should be performed.

     A lot of parallel references can be drawn between "Hatha-Yoga", "Tantra"  and "Kamasutra". For example Vatsyayana  cites  Padamasana (lotus posture of yoga) as one of the position in Kama Sutra  and a lot of other positions derived from Yoga. Tantra teaches breath control.  The combination of Tantra, Yoga and Kamasutra enable the practitioner to unite with the ultimate Cosmic energy,  Shakti which is symbolized by the Great Goddess.
