CONCLUDING REMARKS

under the pretence of affection for the King. In the country of the 

Aparatakas[68] the people gave their beautiful wives as presents to the 

ministers and the Kings. And lastly in the country of the 

Saurashtras[69] the women of the city and the country enter the royal 

harem for the King's pleasure either together or separately. 

 

There are also two verses on the subject as follows: 

 

"The above and other ways are the means employed in different countries 

by Kings with regard to the wives of other persons. But a King, who has 

the welfare of his people at heart, should not on any account put them 

into practice." 

 

"A King who has conquered the six[70] enemies of mankind, becomes the 

master of the whole earth."

CHAPTER VI. 

 

ABOUT THE WOMEN OF THE ROYAL HAREM; AND OF THE KEEPING OF ONE'S OWN 

WIFE. 

 

 

The women of the royal harem cannot see or meet any men on account of 

their being strictly guarded, neither do they have their desires 

satisfied, because their only husband is common to many wives. For this 

reason among themselves they give pleasure to each other in various ways 

as now described. 

 

Having dressed the daughters of their nurses, or their female friends, 

or their female attendants, like men, they accomplish their object by 

means of bulbs, roots, and fruits having the form of the Lingam, or they 

lie down upon the statue of a male figure, in which the Lingam is 

visible and erect.
