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. Nov 13, 2016 at 4:02

    @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. Nov 15, 2016 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 I read Kamasutra but didn't find any useful stuff in that. Yeah. We should respect others beliefs but this site is for Spirituality. It agains depends on person's temperament to choose Moksha or other thing as Supreme (like Purvamimasa School. For them attaining Indrahood is highest position). As now many people are Vedantins, People say Moksha is Supreme and literature which talks about it as Supreme. Even personally, i find logically Moksha is Supreme Bliss and also there's no point of return.

    @iammilind I think no one should read Kamasutra because of two reasons. First, Kamasutra encourages Kama, which is wrong. Second, it increases the desire for masturbation and sex, which is undesirable.
