Chanakya

370–283 BCE
Chanakya is considered as the pioneer of the field of economics and political science in
India. He managed the first Maurya emperor Chandragupta's rise to power at a young
age and is widely credited for having played an important role in the establishment of
the Maurya Empire, the first empire to rule most of the Indian subcontinent.
Two books are attributed to Chanakya: Arthashastra and Chanakya Neeti (also known
as Neetishastra). The Arthashastra discusses monetary and fiscal policies, international
relations, war strategies and also outlines the duties of a ruler.
Chanakya Neeti is a treatise on the ideal way of life, and shows Chanakya's deep study
of the Indian way of life. Chanakya also developed Neeti-Sutras (aphorisms) that tell
people how they should behave.
Introduction
As an inspirational speaker I am often amazed by the power that lies in a single
sentence to transform someone’s life. Good sayings, though short, can be
profound and have the power to transform one’s life and one’s thoughts.
Empowering words “I.N.S.P.I.R.E.” us to reach higher. They:
I nfuse positive energy and zest for life
N urture new ideas and visions
S ummarize complex concepts and ideologies
P rovide us with a new perspective of seeing things
I nspire us to have dreams
R eveal the mindsets of successful people
E ncourage us in times of despair
This book contains handpicked verses from the Chanakya Neeti thoughtfully
arranged in alphabetically ordered sections to remind us of our inner strengths
and abilities. I do hope the empowering words in this book will inspire you to
reach higher…
-Amey Hegde

Importance of determination

Yaddooram Yadduraaraaddhyam Yachcha Doore
Vyavasthitam,
Tattsarva Tapasaa Saaddhyam Tapo hi
Duratikramam. 33

Even if the destination or the desired object be
far away or difficult to achieve one can reach it or
get it if one is determined. Nothing is impossible
for a determined person.
Don’t speak ill of others

Yaddeechchasi Vasheekartu Jagadeken
Karmana.
Paraapavaadashaastreebhyo Gaam Charanteem
Nivaarya. 35

If

you want to overpower the entire world
merely by just one action, then put restraint upon
your tongue speaking ill of others.
The greatest and the best

Shaantitullyam Tapo Naasti Na
Santoshaatparamsukham
Na Trishnayaaparo Vyaadhirnacha Dharmo
Dayaaparah. 37

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.
Be active and flexible to change

Anaagat vidhaataa Cha Prattutpannamatistathaa
Dvaavetau Sukhameveta Yaddbhavishyo
Vinashyati. 153

He who is aware of the future troubles and who
possesses sharp intelligence remains happy. In
contradiction to this stage, he who remains
inactive, waiting for the good days to come
destroys his own life.
Live in the moment

Gatam Shoko na Kartavya Bhavishyam Naiv
Chintayet
Vartamaanen Kaalen Pravartante Vishakshanaah
188

One should not grieve for the past and worry for
the future. The wise care for the present and
chart their life’s course accordingly.
Accumulate knowledge, goodwill
& wealth slowly & steadily

Jalvindunipaaten Kramashah Pooryate Ghatah
Sahetu Sarvaviddyaanaam Dhardasya Cha
Dhanasya Cha. 208

A mere trickle of the tiny drops of water can fill
the pitcher. The same way we must keep on
collecting knowledge, Dharma, and money.
Don’t publicise before achieving

Manasaa Chintitam Kaaryam Vachsaa Na
Prakaashyet
Mantrem Rakhned goodham Kaaryam Chaapi
Niyojet. 219

One should never leak out one’s well thought out
intentions, determinations and they should be
jealously guarded like some secret Mantra. The
implementation of them should also be achieved
without any fan fare and in total secrecy (to
ensure their successful accomplishment.)
Learning from the lion:put in 100%

Prabhootam Kaaryampi Vaa Tattparah
Prakartumichati
Sarvaarambhen Tattkaarya Singhaadekam
Prachakshate. 275

Whether

it be big or small, we must do every
work with our full capacity and power. This
quality we must learn from the lion.
(It is believed that the lion never does anything
half heartedly. It would kill a rabbit or attack an
elephant with its full ferocity.)
Learning from the heron: Focus

Indriyaani Cha Sanyammya Bakavttyapandito
narah
Deshkaal Balam Gyaattvaa Sarvakaaryaani
Saadhayet. 276

Controlling

all your senses like the heron and
after carefully considering the factors of time and
space and the capacity of self the wise
accomplish their work successfully.
(The heron has this great capacity to forget
everything else to concentrate on it’s target.)
Learning from the dog

Baahavshee Svalpasantushtah Sunidro
Laguchetanaa
Swaamibhaktashcha Shoorashcha Shadete
Shvaanato Gunaah. 279

Deriving satisfaction out of a little eating even in
the famished condition, being alert despite being
deep in slumber, faithfulness and bravery –these
six qualities ought to be learnt from a dog
Learning from the donkey

Sushraantoapi Vahed Bhaaram Sheetoshna Na
Pashyanti
Santushtashcharato Nittyam Treeni
Shikshechacha Gardabhaat. 280

The

capacity to carry the load despite being
bone-tired, being undaunted by the vagaries of
weather and getting satisfied in all the conditions
- these three qualities are to be learnt from the
donkey.
Chanakya Sutras
Importance of planning &
prioritisation

Do the work which is more fruitful if you need to
do many assignments. 226

Think about the assignments of a day during the
end of night i.e the dawn. 488
Chanakya Sutras
Importance of being open minded

A

proud king should shed his pride during
difficulty; and must find out the solution using
unbiased ideas. 19

A

person who is capable of listening and
thinking highly should be made a minister by the
king. 21

One

should
not
be
