IMPERIUMDAILY.COM-KHAJURAHO-There are allegations that the erotic Khajuraho temple in India was built at a time when the human population in India is declining. But, one thing is certain, in India, sex and religion always go together. Until now in Khajuraho, this is still ongoing. Every year in the fall, village women take part in ancient fertility ceremonies. Every morning they wake up at dawn, wear their best clothes and walk to the Chausath Yogini temple.
Before entering the temple, they made offerings of flowers and water. Quoted from Beritaunik.net, the girls pray to get a good man to be her husband, married women pray for children. The art historian Devongan Nagasai leader in Indian eroticism found that Goddess Durga/Goddess of fertility has ancient roots in the sexual aspects of religion in India. Erotic images from the 2nd century BC that were found in Indian art are generally considered to be something that can bring profit and they are expected to drive away demons.
According to the research, erotic images in India have been there before, far until 2000 BC. This carving comes from the worship of the mother goddess. He has power over basic issues of life.
Who built the temple and the other gods? Modern researchers revealed that the answer involved a mixture of power, religion and sex. 40 miles north of Khajuraho, there are ruins of the palace. In the past, the palace area was the residence of one of the most powerful Dynasty leaders in India, Prince Chandela. In the 5th century the center of Indian trade declined. Power was transferred to the interior.
In the 10th century, when temple construction in Khajuraho began, carving expertise in India reached its peak. But the complexity, the meaning of art is misleading because culture, royal rulers and slaves have built superstitions. The beautiful carvings in Khajuraho revive the belief of the mother of the ancient goddesses in the magical power of eroticism. In Khajuraho, erotic carvings have a new role. The temple consists of 2 parts, a public area and an inner sanctum which is connected by a shortcut. The road is where humans meet the gods and herein lies the erotic engraving.
Ancient traditions that connect humans with God through sex are not easily accepted in modern India. Showing general affection such as holding hands is not permitted. 30 years ago, when the kama sutra was finally legally published in the west, it immediately caused a stir.
Now India is in a cultural transition. Struggling to reconcile the erotic past with the present. Modern India is strongly opposed to erotic sculptures in Khajuraho. Although proud of their artistic progress and happy because many tourists are interested in visiting. But now modern society in India has developed much more politely than when under the King of England. After independence in 1948, India made laws that prohibited three such sexual acts.
It was even said, there was one parliamentarian who was a former Mahatma Gandhi colleague earnestly suggested that the statues in Khajuraho to be buried. (aka)
