  • This book is about sacred erotic art and themes of Nepal. All designs are drawn. All the line drawings given in it are eye copies drawn from the temples of Nepal. Erotic sculptures are those made by Nepalese artists true to iconography. The authors ventured to with it as erotic art is on the verge of loosing its ground. Now no new temples constructed have erotic scenes. However, those which are renovated depict erotic scenery as they are almost replicas or are exact reproductions of the original ones.

    The book is replete with Hindu Philosophy, including the practices of Yoga and the Tantra. Buddhist attitudes are assessed from a Hindu viewpoint and criticized accordingly. 

    The book is useful introduction to a thorny subject and to a prominent feature  of the religious act of Nepal. It will also be of interest to sexologist and all those who wish to understand more of Hindu religious and sexual symbolism.
