Chanakya Neeti : Chapter 2

Below are the Inspirational ideas of Chanakya from the second chapter of Chanakya Neeti.

** Discretion advised ***

By working hard, you get good food to eat, the capability to digest it, a beautiful wife and happiness with her, and the wealth to be used for good causes.

A person experiences heavenly joy whose son is obedient,  whose wife is faithful, and who himself is satisfied with whatever he has (non-envying nature).

A true son is obedient to his father, and a true father takes care of his son. Honesty is the quality of a true friend.

Acharya Chanakya suggests that a person must stay away from the people who talk flattery in front of you but try to harm at your back. Such friendship is like a vial of poison with milk on its top. Simply stay away from such people!

A friend who is not good shall not be trusted, nor trust a friend who has not proven wrong. They may reveal your secrets to others when not in good terms with you.  (Chanakya also advises you not to act foolishly under peer pressure.)

Don’t speak anything about your plans, as others will try to hinder your regime. (The straightforward suggestion is that you continue with the task without grabbing much attention.)

Stupidity is a pain, and the days of youth are quite painful. Living on the mercy of others is woe extreme (worst).

  • All hills do not hide gems in it.
  • All elephants do not possess mani (Gajamukta).
  • Every place is not a home. Every home is not of a noble/good man.
  • Every forest is not sandalwood.

* The moral is that a man must act as per the situation instead of continuing with the false assumptions. Also, don’t trust everyone.

A wise person grooms his child carefully because only an educated person with high morale is given genuine respect in society.

* Throughout Chanakya Neeti, you will see that Kautilya has emphasized a lot over practical education.

The parents who do not care for the education of their children are their worst enemies. On growing up, such children feel isolated within the society, just like a crane in a flock of swans.

Chanakya advises not to overindulge with your child, pupil, and students. It will spoil them.

Do not allow a single day of your life to pass away without learning something good and useful.

The destruction is inevitable for:

  • A tree standing on the bank of a river
  • A woman in the house of a stranger
  • A king with stupid/evil counselors.

The power:

  • Of a scholar lies in his knowledge
  • Of a king lies in his army
  • Of a trader lies in his money
  • Of a servant is in his service.

* Chanakya Neeti tells you to understand your role and act accordingly.

People leave a weak king, a prostitute deserts improvised customer, and birds leave a withered tree. In the same manner, the guests must leave the house of the host after having food.

One who befriends a person of bad character or lives in the company of an evil fellow undergoes quick destruction.

The friendship amongst equals, service under a king, being a trader by occupation, and for a woman to stay at home; are the best. (* discretion advised)
