The Hinduism is not only a religion but it is also a philosophy, not only a religion and philosophy, but it is a way of life.
The Hindu shastras meaning scriptures shows the correct way as how to lead a successful life for every man and woman
There is a wrong notion that Hinduism hates the Sexual intercourse and compels everybody to hate the art of sex.
Maharishi Vatsayana in his kama sutra (The art of Sex) describes everything about sex in a beautiful manner.
According to the Hindu Shastras the women are of four types.
Padmini ( The Lotus girl), Chitrini (elegant girl), Sankhini (the tall girl) and Hastini (Elephant girl).
It is very rare to see a Padmini.
Draupadi, Ahalya, Anusuya, Sita are all of Padmini type.
Similarly we have types of men and poses in the art of Love.
The Hindu kings patronized poets in their courts. And these poets are well versed with the Kama Sastra (The Science of Sex) and used to compose love poems to please the king.
The people of the world should first read Kama Sutra of Vatsayana before marriage.
King Bhoja maharaja has written many books. He is a very great Sanskrit scholar. He has been credited with works of every branch of knowledge. It is learnt that he has written at least 84 books according to Ajada who has written a commentary on his book ‘Saraswathikantabharana’.
Sringara Prakasa is a beautiful book about the art of Love, written by him.
In this wonderful book we have 36 chapters.
Bhoja in his eleventh chapter deals with Love.
According to Bhoja Sringara rasa – Prema – Love is the only Rasa. And 49 Bhavas are born out of this Sringara.
The love is of 64 kinds. They are Abhilasa, Akanksa, Apeksha, Utkantha, Ipsa, Lipsa, Iccha, Vancha, Trsna, Lalasa, Sprha, Laulya, Gardha, Sraddha, Ruci, Dohada, Asa, Asis, Asamsa, Manoratha, Astha, Abhinivesa, Anubandha, Agraha, Vimarsa, Manisa, Abhiparaya, Paksapada, Lobha, Asanga, Abisvanga, Sakti, Moha, Akuta, Kuthuhala, Vismaya, Raga, Vega, Ashyavasaya, Vyavasaya, Kamana, Vasana, Smarana, Sankalpa, Bhava, Rasa hasa, Rati, Priti, Dakshinya, Anugraha, Vatsalya, Anukrosa, Visvasa, Visramba, Vasikara, Pranaya, Prapti, Paryapti, Samapti, Abhimanapti, Sneha, Prema, Ahlada and Nivrti.
Bhoja enumerated these 64 kinds of love with illustrations.
And each of these 64 kinds can be in eight forms. So now we get 512 varieties.
And each of these 512 can be in 24 forms. So the total will be 12288!
Take any Love poem in any language of the world, you can see that it falls into one of these 12288 forms!
Nobody on earth has analyzed the most important aspect of life namely Sex so beautifully and scientifically as that of a Hindu.
Hinduism shows the way as to how to understand and lead a sexual life successfully to the utmost satisfaction of a man and woman.
There are more than one lakh love poems in Sanskrit Language. And in Tamil language there are thousands of Love poems.
Each has its own form and charm.
Readers should spare some time to read these poems!
