CONCLUDING REMARKS

disguise himself as a female attendant of the lady who comes to the 

place, or passes by it. When she looks at him he should let her know his 

feelings by outward signs and gestures, and should show her pictures, 

things with double meanings, chaplets of flowers, and rings. He should 

carefully mark the answer she gives, whether by word or by sign, or by 

gesture, and should then try and get into the harem. If he is certain of 

her coming to some particular place he should conceal himself there, and 

at the appointed time should enter along with her as one of the guards. 

He may also go in and out, concealed in a folded bed, or bed covering, 

or with his body made invisible,[71] by means of external applications, 

a receipt for one of which is as follows: 

 

The heart of an ichneumon, the fruit of the long gourd (Tumbi), and the 

eyes of the serpent, should all be burnt without letting out the smoke, 

the ashes should then be ground and mixed in equal quantities with 

water. By putting this mixture upon the eyes a man can go about unseen. 

 

Other means of invisibility are prescribed by Duyana Brahmans and 

Jogashiras. 

 

Again the man may enter the harem during the festival of the eight moon 

in the month of Nargashirsha, and during the moonlight festivals when 

the female attendants of the harem are all busily occupied, or in 

confusion. 

 

The following principles are laid down on this subject. 

 

The entrance of young men into harems, and their exit from them, 

generally take place when things are being brought into the palace, or 

when things are being taken out of it, or when drinking festivals are 

going on, or when the female attendants are in a hurry, or when the 

residence of some of the royal ladies is being changed, or when the 

King's wives go to gardens, or to fairs, or when they enter the palace 

on their return from them; or, lastly, when the King is absent on a long 

pilgrimage. The women of the royal harem know each other's secrets, and 

having but one object to attain, they give assistance to each other. A 

young man, who enjoys all of them, and who is common to them all, can 

continue enjoying his union with them so long as it is kept quiet, and 

is not known abroad. 

 

Now in the country of the Aparatakas the royal ladies are not well 

protected, and consequently many young men are passed into the harem by 

the women who have access to the royal palaces. The wives of the King of 

the Ahira country accomplish their objects with those sentinels in the
