It was not the practice in ancient India to denigrate the body as the abode of the devil...Life was clearly dichotomised between the amatory and the ascetic - between the joys and pleasures of the world as against the spiritual rigours of the monastic retreat- and both types of experience were equally valorised..Like the merging of the waters of the Ganga and the Yamuna at Prayaga, the twinstreams of human love - love of God and love of men or women - found their apotheosis through the transcendent union of male and female in the image of the androgynous deity, Ardhanarisvara.
