The name Kama-deva (IAST kāma-deva) can be translated as ‘god of love’. Deva means heavenly or divine. Kama (IAST kāma) meaning “desire” or “longing”, especially as in sensual or sexual love. The name is used in Rig Veda (RV 9, 113. 11). Kamadeva is a name of Vishnu in Vishnu Purana and Bhagavata Purana (SB 5.18.15) and of Krishna as well as of Shiva. It is the name of author of Sanskrit work Prayaschita padyata. Kama is also a name used for Agni.

The deity of Kamadeva along with his consort Rati is included in the pantheon of Vedic-Brahmanical deities such as Shiva and Parvati. In Hindu traditions for the marriage ceremony itself, the bride’s feet are often painted with pictures of Suka, the parrot vahana of Kamadeva. The religious rituals addressed to him offer a means of purification and reentry into the community. Devotion to Kamadeva keeps desire within the framework of the religious tradition. Kamadeva also appears in other stories and becomes the object of certain devotional rituals for those seeking health, physical beauty, husbands, wives, and sons. In one story Kamadeva himself succumbs to desire, and must then worship his lover in order to be released from this passion and its curse.

This is famous allegorical QUOTE of India on

Desire Management

King Yayati said to Devyani:

“Desire is never satisfied by the enjoyment of the [objects of] desire: like fire fed by sacrificial oil (fulfilled desires) it [desire] only increases in intensity.”
(IX:9.14)
All the food-grains, gold, animals and women cannot satisfy one whose mind is subject to desire.(IX. 19.13)
Therefore, concentrating on Brahma and freeing my mind from the pairs of opposites [ pleasure – pain, comfort – discomfort, etc], I will live in forest. (IX.19.19)

Due to paucity of time I am plucking just one story of handsome King Yeyati from Catherine’s dissertation to elaborate my review findings of the entire dissertation.

Cahterine has narrated the story of handsome King Yeyati and his penchant for sexual gratification with Devyani.

God of love: Kamadeva

COMPLIMENTS TO STUDENT AND TEACHER

I wish to congratulate Catherine Benton and her teacher for understanding the essence behind the romantic, carnal story of handsome King Yeyati and Devyani.

DISSATISFACTION DESPITE SEX UNLIMITED

How desires can never be satiated even if your desired object is gifted to you and with it you are also given healthy constitution and long life of scores of hundreds of years to savor the object of desire is clearly elaborated in this dissertation of Catherine Benton on Kama deva.

Sexual desire unlimited and means to gratify having been given to handsome King Yeyati; the Indian Masters of Upanishadic Philosophy have poetically sketched comparison between sensual pleasures and enlightenment.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEX PLEASURE AND LOVE DIVINE

If you see through the eyes of Yeyati you will see as clearly as sunny day the essential difference between the
mirage of sensuous gratification,
comfort,
convenience,
luxury (CHARVAK Philosopy)
and
the eternal bliss of Divine Love.

If the God of Desire KAMDEV fulfills your desires?

Wow! Awesome. What if I had the boon of gratification of desire the way King Yeyati had? – is what you would be tempted to dream.
Gifted literary scholars have crafted bestsellers based on the story of handsome King Yeayati. One such example is Shri V. S. Khandekar’s book in Marathi titled ‘Yeyatii’.

WHAT ARE PURANAS?

Highest teachings have been told in the form of stories in Purana so that common person is delighted to hear the story, identifies easily with the characters and comes to know the necessity and Supreme Beauty of the highest ladder of evolution, Self Realization or God Realization.

DON’T MISS THE JOY ULTIMATE

This art of Self Realization is blessing of the scientists of yore. These scientists are called in India as Rishis, many of whom cared not to sign or take credit for their work. Purana is treasure house of stories that are mystical as they use symbolisms. Puranas are delightful to the naive and deeply revealing to the erudite. DON’T MISS THE JOY ULTIMATE in this journey of life is what the Masters of Vedanta tell us.

In her doctoral dissertation Catherine Benton of Columbia University gives background references from Indian Puranas, as well as the Vedas, notably, the Rig Veda and the Atharvaveda.

Kamadeva is a god of desire in the Indian Purana, which is huge collection of stories that are mystical using symbolisms. Puranas are delightful to the naive and deeply revealing to the erudite.
Faculty of “Desire” studied with reference to Indian ancient literature.

The following is verbatim copy of abstract of her dissertation.


TOP
BOTTOM

This dissertation traces the images and stories involving the god of desire from the earliest hymns in the Rg Veda and Atharva Veda through the better known and lesser known tales in the Puranas, to the practices described for the worship of the deity. Finally, the study looks at an Indian Buddhist image of Kamadeva, an early tantric form of the bodhisattva Manjusri.

The best known form of the god, the handsome deity who excites erotic passion in the hearts of those struck by the flower arrows he releases from his sugarcane bow, is most graphically described in the puranic stories which delight in recounting the tug-of-war between Kama and the great ascetic, Siva. However, Kama also appears in other stories and even becomes the object of certain devotional rituals for those seeking health, physical beauty, husbands, wives, and sons. In one story Kama himself succumbs to desire, and must then worship his lover in order to be released from this passion and its curse.

In two other guises Kamadeva is said to take incarnation as Pradyumna, the son of Krsna, and is known as a form of Manjusri called Vajrananga. Although little attention is given to the Pradyumna story in Vaisnava literature, this story presents the incarnate Kama as the husband of Mayavati, Mistress of Illusion. In the Buddhist tradition, Manjusri-Vagrananga carries the sugarcane bow and flower arrows while displaying the srngara rasa. The reasons for these two forms of the deity are explored in the last two chapters.

The thesis presents a monograph of the Indian god of desire and a picture of the way the katha literature perceives and treats the integral human force of “desire.”
