The Significance of the Kamasutra Book Truly, if one heeds the wisdom enshrined in the Kamasutra, we can see that the sage Vatsyayana showed an immense grasp of the relationship on ida and pingala, the inner man and woman in every human being.

It is almost as if this sage shared the new kind of perception of the poetry of imperceptible feelings, which the Gupta bards were to bring to their creations along with their awareness of the life of action and conflict and stress on the earth, in the here and the now, in the flesh and the blood, in the search for harmony. The strange thing is, we feel no shock, when we are ushered from the overtly non-sexual context of our daily lives into the very heart of the privacies of sex. Translations of the Kamasutra In this view, Dane does not differ from prior translators of the Vatsyayana Kamasutra, including Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot and his collaboration with the nineteenth century Richard Francis Burton.
