CONCLUDING REMARKS

in need. I shall, therefore, obtain her vast riches in 

this way without any difficulty. 

 

Or thus:-- 

 

(_h_). This woman loves me ardently, and knows all my weak points, 

if therefore, I am unwilling to be united with her, she 

will make my faults public, and thus tarnish my character 

and reputation. Or she will bring some gross accusation 

against me, of which it may be hard to clear myself, and I 

shall be ruined. Or perhaps she will detach from me her 

husband, who is powerful, and yet under her control, and 

will unite him to my enemy, or will herself join the latter. 

 

Or thus:-- 

 

(_i_). The husband of this woman has violated the chastity of my 

wives, I shall therefore return that injury by seducing 

his wives. 

 

Or thus:-- 

 

(_j_). By the help of this woman I shall kill an enemy of the king, 

who has taken shelter with her, and whom I am ordered by 

the king to destroy. 

 

Or thus:

beauty, but who is hard to get at, and under the control 

of another. 

 

Or, lastly, thus:-- 

 

(_m_). My enemy is a friend of this woman's husband, I shall 

therefore cause her to join him, and will thus create an 

enmity between her husband and him. 

 

For these and similar other reasons the wives of other men may be 

resorted to, but it must be distinctly understood that is only allowed 

for special reasons, and not for mere carnal desire. 

 

Charayana thinks that under these circumstances there is also a fifth 

kind of Nayika, viz., a woman who is kept by a minister, and who repairs 

to him occasionally; or a widow who accomplishes the purpose of a man 

with the person to whom she resorts. 

 

Suvarnanabha adds that a woman who passes the life of an ascetic and in 

the condition of a widow may be considered as a sixth kind of Nayika. 

 

Ghotakamukha says that the daughter of a public woman, and a female 

servant, who are still virgins, form a seventh kind of Nayika. 

 

Gonardiya puts forth his doctrine that any woman born of good family,
