The Kama Sutra (/ˈkɑːmə ˈsuːtrə/; Sanskrit: कामसूत्र, ￼ pronunciation , Kāmasūtra) is an ancient Indian Hindu text written by Vātsyāyana. It is widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behaviour in Sanskrit literature. A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. It is largely in prose, with many inserted anustubh poetry verses. "Kāma" which is one of the four goals of Hindu life, means desire including sexual desire, the latter being the subject of the textbook, and "sūtra" literally means a thread or line that holds things together, and more metaphorically refers to an aphorism (or line, rule, formula), or a collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual. Contrary to western popular perception, the Kama Sutra is not exclusively a sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life, and other aspects pertaining to pleasure-oriented faculties of human life. The Kama Sutra, in parts of the world, is presumed or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only 20% of the Kama Sutra is about sexual positions. The majority of the book, notes Jacob Levy, is about the philosophy and theory of love, what triggers desire, what sustains it, and how and when it is good or bad. The Kama Sutra is the oldest and most notable of a group of texts known generically as Kama Shastra (Sanskrit: Kāma Śāstra). Historians believe the Kama Sutra to have been composed between 400 BCE and 200 CE. John Keay says that the Kama Sutra is a compendium that was collected into its present form in the 2nd century CE. . . . #starwars#eidmubarak#yoga#yogi#yogini#medicine#health#healthy#hindu#yogaretreat#newdelhi#temple#islam#tajmahal#buddha#kamasutra#mommy#mamma#trump#yogainspiration#yogadaily#donaldtrump#unesco#yogamom#tamil#fresh#bombay#religion
The only thing that seems to be constant is... change. Anchoring myself onto fleeting grounds. My body harnesses old memories that bubble up. Feels like death. Then rebirth. A lonely child’s old defense mechanism. She had to survive. “Look how good I am! Do you love me now?” All grown. Heart is healing. But the body’s still catching up. At first sign of judgment it shuts down. Anxiety and fear... of what? The dangers are no longer there, child. You are ultimate greatness. You are loved. As you are.
Yesterday was International Yoga day and I’m not posting any yoga pose or something related to yoga, even I love yoga, as yoga-asana practice, I love practice of pranayama and all other aspects of yoga and all limbs of yoga. I’m not posting any glamorously complicated yoga pose, cropped, retouched or highlighted by some exotic backdrop, that is not real yoga. Not at least, to me. • For me yoga is my daily life and how successful I’m flowing through every single day. How I manage my stress which is still (unfortunately) present almost every day. How can I stay aware, awake in the moment. How do I feel and how do I respond. All of this is a yoga practice. • Yoga is a collection of experiences, navigated with the weapons of consciousness we sharpen by diving into failure, vulnerability, courage, love, honesty and humility. • Yesterday it was also a Summer Solstice with all of high vibrations and flowing energy. But I felt like shi...! • No matter what International day is or was it doesn’t really matter if you don’t feel like to celebrate or you have to much “real” things to do. • Yesterday our Svit Val had many epileptic seizures and he is still vomiting every day and that makes me very, very nervous and concerned because he is loosing his weight. This are some real things we are facing every day, no matter what day is. • So, if you find any other day pleasant, nice go for it. You don’t have to wait for any International day of something or birthdays or anything. You can celebrate whenever you want, because you never know what the night will bring or tomorrow. • It’s good to have some reminders which can support you, but don’t relay onto that. • It’s you, who decided what kind of day you are gonna have. • Even in our darkest times, and we have many lately, I’m surprised how we ( me and my hubby) can still do it! It’s fu..... hard! And we are soooo tired that also our relationship is in stress 🙈 • But here we are in
