Siva: The Erotic Ascetic


Originally published under the title Asceticism and Eroticism in the Mythology of Siva , this book traces the development of an Indian approach to an enduring human dilemma: the conflict between spiritual aspirations and human desires. The work examines hundreds of related myths and a wide range of Indian texts--Vedic, Puranic, classical, modern, and tribal--centering on the stories of the great ascetic, Siva, and his erotic alter ego , Kama.
