Kama Sutra

..and don't get excited, I'm talking of the excellent erotic film by Mira Nair. I have great respect for her work and this film is well worth watching. It has passion and addresses that passion with some very astute comments, such as 'the art of love is much more than the act itself'. Wise words. It states that the sutra of kama are to 'take us to a place of union, where each partner becomes both. Imagine such bliss'. I've had that experience so I know the truth of it.

The film made full use of the wonderful erotic carvings on the Lakshmana temple at Khajuraho. If you want to see them properly, go in the day and appreciate the natural shadows; in the early evening there's a heinous son et lumière which completely ruins the effect.

When most people think of the Kama Sutra, they think of the purely sexual aspect of it when the true purpose of it was to teach people about life, all of it, and how to ripen. Although it's a sacred text of a faith not my own, I think it speaks to everyone and anyone.
