ASCL 53.01 Divine Love: Desire, Sex, and Romance in Traditions of India

"You've got the money, but we've got the love." Indians comparing their country with this one often make judgments in these terms. But isn't love a human universal? In this course we will examine how religious texts have helped construct Indian attitudes towards desire, sex, and romance. We will tour various historical genres: erotic how-to, epic, mystical poetry, drama. The ideal bond in many of these texts unites a human subject with a divine lover.
