Summary

Work of erotic literature in the genre of kāmasūtra (treatise on desire or sexual love). There is an apocryphal author attribution to the Advaitan philosopher Śaṅkarācārya in the colophon (f. 12v) which stems from a legend wherein the philosopher is said to have possessed the body of the original author Amaru, said to be a Kashmiri king, and experienced his former passions that enabled him to write the work.
