So another book read, this book is different from all other books I have read before which are not many though 😛 . B.K. Chaturvedi has beautifully explained Chanakya teaching in this book ranging from The Individual, Society, Good Company, General Observation. Chanakya is one of the greatest figures of wisdom and knowledge in Indian history. Chanakya’s all great wisdom is well stated in this book in the form of shlokas/saying in both English and Sanskrit language with explanation. Chanakya with his knowledge and teaching turn Chandragupta Maurya into emperor of one of the largest-ever empires on India. Let me share some of that teaching with you.
No disease is more deadly than desire, no enemy is more dangerous than infatuation, no fire is hotter than the fire of wrath and no happiness is better than self-knowledge.
If one craves of comfort, then he should drop the idea of studying and if one wants to study sincerely then he should stop craving for comfort. One cannot get comfort and education simultaneously.
Knowledge and guess, both, must be used while examining the possible consequences of a job to be undertaken.
Book is filled with these type of Shlokas/Saying which gives quality knowledge about different perspective about life. A must read for the one who want to know Chanakya’s Neeti.
Happy Reading 🙂
