nandi, the chief attendant of shiv-bhagvan,
was the first one to formulate a kaam shaastra, which
means a sacred scriptural treatise on the part of gnaan
(knowledge) contained in ved about kaam.
From this text bhrihat aaryank upnishad
and chadogy upnishad has drawn
material to explain kaam. Also shevtketu,
the son of uddalak-muni, condensed nandi's
kaam shaastra in 500 verses.
In the current era, in 4 A.D. vaatsyaayan
compiled works of many of the ved scholars preceding him in what is now famous
as kaam sutra...which
primarily deals with the kaam that
exists between a man and a woman.....
vaatsyaayan starts kaam
sutra by this hymn:
trii-varg purushaarth: dharma, arth and kaam
which are the subject of this sutra (treatise). pranaam
to rushio and
munio of former times who explained the concepts of
vaatsyaayan also says pranaam to brahmaa-dev,
the prajaapati who creates everything
that exists in our brhmaand (egg of brhmah
in a universe which may contain infinite number of brhmaand)
with this hymn:
" prajaapati , after
creating man, composed a shaastra of
one hundred thousand verses. In this shaastra
prajaapati prescribed the rules of living in sansaar
(worldly life) to attain the tri-varg purushaarth
of dharma, arth and kaam."
The above knowledge sharing from ved
will be continued in days to come......with the krupaa
(grace) of our creator brhmah...
