chanakya neeti : chapter 5

Have a look over the points stated below. If not amazed then at-least you’ll be inspired by the Chanakya Neeti quotes said below:

Infatuation is the most prominent disease, and greed is the worst enemy of an individual. Anger is the most damaging fire, and among all possessions, the knowledge is supreme.

The test for purity of gold is performed by rubbing, heating, pounding, and cutting.  Similarly, the true characteristic of a person is revealed at the time of great trouble. His manners, voice, and actions will tell a lot about him.

Everyone is likely to face troubles in life, and even wise men fear them. Anyhow, a wise man deals with difficulty wholeheartedly and boldly upon its arrival.

Children born from the same mother and also under the same stars might differ in their characteristics. The example is a Ber tree having sweet fruits as well as painful thorns on it.

Administrators are corrupt in some or other manner. The person who preens is likely to be romantic. A foolish cannot be a polite talker, and a frank person faces difficulty in telling lies.

Fools envy wise men, poor envy with rich. In the same manner, prostitutes are jealous of pious ladies.

The best way to sabotage knowledge is to remain idle. Women [men as well!] looking for another man will also face destruction. Also, you cannot gain a good harvest by sowing fewer seeds.

After the execution of the commander, his army becomes ineffective.

Those persons will be cursed who make fun of knowledge-full people. Who disrespect the rituals stated in scriptures, and who wrongfully accuse a serene person. They will suffer for sure.

Charity puts an end to poverty, knowledge to ignorance. Good behavior eliminates most of the troubles, and devotion in God marks an end to all fears.

For a person with absolute knowledge, heaven is of least significance. A true warrior gives little importance to his life. For a true sage woman is of no use, and for a person with control over his desires, the whole world loses its significance.

Skill is like the best friend in foreign territories. A woman with a good nature is truly the best friend of a man. Similarly, medicine is a friend to a sick person and charity in the next world.

Rain over the ocean, helping the capable, and lightening a lamp in daylight is nothing but the useless acts.

Rainwater is purest of all waters, and the will-power is mightiest of all powers.

Poor men desire for money. Animals want the power of speech. Men desire for heaven while angels desire for Nirvana.

Truth keeps the earth in its place, and it is the truth that is responsible for the wind to blow. Truth makes the sun shine and is the primary force for the existence of everything.

Money comes and goes, so is the youth. Life goes and goes the soul; Nothing lasts forever. The only thing that stays firm is your faith.
