CONCLUDING REMARKS

"deceitful congress." 

 

(7). The congress that takes place between two persons who are attached 

to one another, and which is done according to their own liking is 

called "spontaneous congress." 

 

Thus ends the kinds of congress. 

 

We shall now speak of love quarrels. 

 

A woman who is very much in love with a man cannot bear to hear the name 

of her rival mentioned, or to have any conversation regarding her, or to 

be addressed by her name through mistake. If such takes place, a great 

quarrel arises, and the woman cries, becomes angry, tosses her hair 

about, strikes her lover, falls from her bed or seat, and, casting aside 

her garlands and ornaments, throws herself down on the ground. 

 

At this time, the lover should attempt to reconcile her with 

conciliatory words, and should take her up carefully and place her on 

her bed. But she, not replying to his questions, and with increased 

anger, should bend down his head by pulling his hair, and having kicked 

him once, twice, or thrice on his arms, head, bosom or back, should then 

proceed to the door of the room. Dattaka says that she should then sit 

angrily near the door and shed tears, but should not go out, because she 

would be found fault with for going away. After a time, when she thinks 

that the conciliatory words and actions of her lover have reached their 

utmost, she should then embrace him, talking to him with harsh and 

reproachful words, but at the same time showing a loving desire for 

congress. 

 

When the woman is in her own house, and has quarrelled with her lover, 

she should go to him and show how angry she is, and leave him. 

Afterwards the citizen having sent the Vita,[41] the Vidushaka[41] or 

the Pithamurda[41] to pacify her, she should accompany them back to the 

house, and spend the night with her lover. 

 

Thus end the love quarrels. 

 

In conclusion. 

 

A man, employing the sixty-four means mentioned by Babhravya, obtains 

his object, and enjoys the woman of the first quality. Though he may 

speak well on other subjects, if he does not know the sixty-four 

divisions, no great respect is paid to him in the assembly of the 

learned. A man, devoid of other knowledge, but well acquainted with the 

sixty-four divisions, becomes a leader in any society of men and women. 

What man will not respect the sixty-four parts,[42] considering they are 

respected by the learned, by the cunning, and by the courtezans. As the
