'Yoga is the science of ultimate balance-between dharma (duty,

or "right living"), artha (economic well-being), kama (erotic

desire) and moksha (enlightenment or liberation)... Sexual

satisfaction is thus essential for a full and healthy experience of

life. The most visible manifestations of yoga are physical poses or

asanas and these were the easiest to depict. Hence the profusion

in India's pre-modern sculpture and art of people engaged in

a variety of sexual acts, the positions inspired directly by yoga


A leading authority on India's art and erotic traditions brings us images of

lovers in yogic or yoga-inspired poses-for mindful pleasure, extended

bliss, or passionate excess-and ranging from the stunningly gymnastic to

the delightfully over-the-top. With a brilliant introduction explaining the

connection between yoga and kama, this book of art is as exquisite as it is
