Description
From the Jacket:

Follow your bliss. Find where it is,
And don't be afraid to follow it.

--Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

The quest for sublime bliss has been an enduring phenomenon. As the world increasingly turns to ancient wisdom in its search for peace and happiness, the recurring theme is the need to banish negativity and excess. Spiritual texts explore the hidden dimensions of the unity between the human and the divine, and acknowledge that any path that leads to understanding and realization of bliss is acceptable-including sexuality. From the erotic works of the Bhakti movement, in which extreme devotion seamlessly merges with sensuality, and Tantrics who used maithuna or intercourse as the preferred means to seek supreme consciousness, from the ascetic Shiva to Krishna, the embodiment of the sringara rasa, sex has always been mystical, for in it lies the mysteries of the universe. Thus rather than a means to seek the divine. Call it love, worship, selfless devotion, service, compassion or Bhakti, Jnana, Karma, Kama, Tantra, all lead to the same divine energy. 'The truth is one, but the wise refer to it by various names.'

About the Author:

Sandhya Mulchandani has been an author and a journalist for well over two decades. She is the author of The Indian Man-His True Colours, a book on the urban Indian male, as well as Kama Sutra for Women, which brings the ancient Indian treatise on love to women. She has translated seven medieval Kama Shastra Sanskrit manuscripts into English, to be published later this year. She has also co-authored Love and Lust, an anthology of erotic literature from ancient and medieval India, and has been working on a dissertation on ancient concepts of ethics and governance and their relevance and application in modern societies. Interested in Advaita philosophy and classical music, she lives in New Delhi with her husband and son.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
