Kama Sutra Book shows how the original Kama Sutra volume is organized in seven parts. Parts and chapter titles follow in its table of contents.

Before reviewing this page and the rest of this guided tour, it may help you if you first understand the Hindu love guide's whole approach. In Chapter 2 of Part One of the Kama Sutra Book, Vatsyayana describes The Three Aims of Life which are...

  • Artha = material goods, means of survival
  • Dharma = ethical rules of social framework
  • Kama = pleasure.

The Kama Sutra Book, though primarily about the third, was firmly set within the context of artha and dharma as well.
