The Kamasutra Of Vatsyayana

This document includes the complete text of the 1883 Burton/Arbuthnot translation of the Kamasutra by Vatsyayana. All footnotes attached are from the translation. There are links from the table of contents directly to the individual chapters for easy navigation through the manuscript. You have permission to print copies of this document.

In the literature of all countries there are certain numbers of works related to love. Everywhere the subject is dealt with differently, and from various points of view. The present publication gives a complete translation of what is considered the standard work on love in Sanscrit literature, and which is called the Vatsyayana Kamasutra, or Aphorisms on Love, by Vatsyayana.

While the introduction will deal with the evidence concerning the date of the writing, and the commentaries written upon it, the chapters following the introduction will give a translation of the work itself. It is, however, advisable to furnish here a brief analysis of works of the same nature, prepared by authors who lived and wrote years after Vatsyayana had passed away, but who still considered him as the great authority, and always quoted him as the chief guide to Hindoo erotic literature.
