can any one suggest the books to be read for Spiritual and Physical pleasure?

I have been in a dilema thought of reading Kamasutra but then a thought comes it is sin.

We all know gathering knowlede is good however it should not be put to wrong use.

    Kama Sutra is not scripture. Simply because the title has the word sutra in it does not make it scripture. It is adharma, not dharma. Try and use common sense. – Swami Vishwananda Nov 13 '16 at 4:02

  • @mano - I don't think there is a seprate list of books for spiritual pleasure , We can listen to mantras , sing Bhajans , aarties for that .So We will get Spiritual pleasure by reading all the scriptures and not by reading few selected one's ,as they are written for that purpose only. – SwiftPushkar Nov 15 '16 at 10:39

    @mano - There are innumerable stories in Hindu scriptures like Mahabharata , Ramayana ,various puranas etc.We get lot's of Spiritual pleasure (good feeling) by reading those. We can read various books on YOGA , Meditation etc for physical well being as well. – SwiftPushkar Nov 15 '16 at 10:40

    @SwamiVishwananda being a high rep user, people will consider your advice more seriously. You are being too judgemental about certain literature just because it doesn't suit your taste. As "Kamasutra" is about certain physicality, shouldn't make it adhArmik. Then any "cooking book" also becomes adhArmik, as it satisfies taste buds. To mano, your Q is good. Just because something is sinful shouldn't stop you from doing it if your conscience allows it. Similarly, just because something is divine shouldn't be done if your conscience isn't interested in it. Read what you want with stable mind. – iammilind Nov 15 '16 at 11:57
