Nitishastra is a treatise on the ideal way of life and shows Chanakya’s in-depth study of the Indian way of life.

Quotes from Nitishastra: 

“Education is the best friend.”

“Books are for the wise.”

Chanakya Niti is considered one of the unique work of Chanakya because of its rational approach and unabashed advocacy of real politics.

Quotes from Chanakya Neeti:

“A person who cannot decide his goal, simply cannot win.”

“You can win over; a greedy by the offer of money, a proud person by cowering before him, a fool by agreeing with him, and a scholar by speaking the truth.”

The teachings and principles of Chanakya are of great relevance and show concurrence and validity in today’s world.


Learn from the mistakes of others. You cannot live long enough to make them all yourselves.”


Before you start some work ask yourself three questions- Why am I doing it, what the results might be and will I be successful? Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.

If you were to choose between the evil person and a snake to keep company with, opt for the snake because a snake will bite only in self-defense but an evil person can put a bit for any reason and anytime or always.


Never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.


God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.


No Penance is greater than the one done for maintaining Peace, No Peace is better than the one received from Satisfaction, No disease as more damaging than Greed, and No Dharma is better than the one having Compassion for all.
