On 04-06-2019 Why are people so afraid? The answer is that they have made themselves helpless and dependent on others. We are so lazy, we do not want to do anything ourselves. We want a Personal God, a Savior or a Prophet to do everything for us. ~ Swami Vivekananda

On 30-05-2019 We often talk of right and justice, but we find that in the world right and justice are mere baby's talk. There are two things which guide the conduct of men: might and mercy. The exercise of might is invariably the exercise of selfishness. ~ Swami Vivekananda

On 22-05-2019 This I have seen in life - those who are overcautious about themselves fall into dangers at every step; those who are afraid of losing honor and respect, get only disgrace; and those who are always afraid of loss, always lose. ~ Swami Vivekananda

On 21-05-2019 Knowledge can only be got in one way, the way of experience; there is no other way to know. ~ Swami Vivekananda

On 19-05-2019 Nature, body, mind go to death, not we. We neither go nor come. The man Vivekananda is in nature, is born and dies; but the Self we see as Vivekananda is never born and never dies. It is the eternal and unchangeable Reality. ~ Swami Vivekananda

On 06-04-2018 Without ego-involvement and without getting entangled in whether things work out the way we want; only then will we not fall into the terrible net of karma. We cannot hope to escape karma by refraining from our duties: even to survive in the world, we must act. ~ The Bhagavad Gita

On 09-03-2018 We are not cabin-dwellers, born to a life cramped and confined; we are meant to explore, to seek, to push the limits of our potential as human beings. The world of the senses is just a base camp: we are meant to be as much at home in consciousness as in the world of physical reality. ~ The Bhagavad Gita

On 08-03-2018 Feelings of heat and cold, pleasure and pain, are caused by the contact of the senses with their objects. They come and they go, never lasting long. You must accept them. ~ The Bhagavad Gita

On 07-03-2018 Performing the duty prescribed by (one's own) nature, one incurreth no sin. ~ The Bhagavad Gita

On 17-02-2018 O ketki flower! Serpents live in your midst, you bear no edible fruits, your leaves are covered with thorns, you are crooked in growth, you thrive in mud, and you are not easily accessible. Still for your exceptional fragrance you are as dear as a kinsmen to others. Hence, a single excellence overcomes a multitude of blemishes. ~ Chanakya

On 16-02-2018 A king, a prostitute, Lord Yamaraja, fire, a thief, a young boy, and a beggar cannot understand the suffering of others. The eighth of this category is the tax collector. ~ Chanakya

On 15-02-2018 If the bees which seek the liquid oozing from the head of a lust intoxicated elephant are driven away by the flapping of his ears, then the elephant has lost only the ornament of his head. The bees are quite happy in the lotus filled lake. ~ Chanakya

On 14-02-2018 Men have eating, sleeping, fearing and mating in common with the lower animals. That in which men excel the beasts is discretionary knowledge; hence, indiscreet men who are without knowledge should be regarded as beasts. ~ Chanakya

On 12-02-2018 The hand is not so well adorned by ornaments as by charitable offerings; one does not become clean by smearing sandalwood paste upon the body as by taking a bath; one does not become so much satisfied by dinner as by having respect shown to him; and salvation is not attained by self-adornment as by cultivation of spiritual knowledge. ~ Chanakya

On 11-02-2018 There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion; but the wicked man is saturated with it. ~ Chanakya

On 10-02-2018 When a man has no strength left in him he becomes a sadhu, one without wealth acts like a brahmachari, a sick man behaves like a devotee of the Lord, and when a woman grows old she becomes devoted to her husband. ~ Chanakya

On 09-02-2018 Though the sea, which is the reservoir of all jewels, is the father of the conch shell, and the Goddess of fortune Lakshmi is conch's sister, still the conch must go from door to door for alms (in the hands of a beggar). It is true, therefore, that one gains nothing without having given in the past. ~ Chanakya

On 07-02-2018 What vice could be worse than covetousness? What is more sinful than slander? For one who is truthful, what need is there for austerity? For one who has a clean heart, what is the need for pilgrimage? If one has a good disposition, what other virtue is needed? If a man has fame, what is the value of other ornamentation? What need is there for wealth for the man of practical knowledge? And if a man is dishonored, what could there be worse in death? ~ Chanakya

On 06-02-2018 That thing which is distant, that thing which appears impossible, and that which is far beyond our reach, can be easily attained through tapasya (austerity), for nothing can surpass austerity. ~ Chanakya

On 05-02-2018 We should repay the favors of others by acts of kindness; so also should we return evil for evil in which there is no sin, for it is necessary to pay a wicked man in his own coin. ~ Chanakya

On 04-02-2018 The scholar who has acquired knowledge by studying innumerable books without the blessings of a bonafide spiritual master does not shine in an assembly of truly learned men just as an illegitimate child is not honored in society. ~ Chanakya

On 03-02-2018 One whose knowledge is confined to books and whose wealth is in the possession of others, can use neither his knowledge nor wealth when the need for them arises. ~ Chanakya

On 02-02-2018 The good habits of charity, learning and austerity practiced during many past lives continue to be cultivated in this birth by virtue of the link (yoga) of this present life to the previous ones. ~ Chanakya

On 01-02-2018 There are two nectarean fruits hanging from the tree of this world: one is the hearing of sweet words (such as Krishna-katha) and the other, the society of saintly men. ~ Chanakya

On 31-01-2018 All the creatures are pleased by loving words; and therefore we should address words that are pleasing to all, for there is no lack of sweet words. ~ Chanakya

On 30-01-2018 It is better to die than to preserve this life by incurring disgrace. The loss of life causes but a moment's grief, but disgrace brings grief every day of one's life. ~ Chanakya

On 29-01-2018 A blade of grass is light, cotton is lighter, the beggar is infinitely lighter still. Why then does not the wind carry him away? Because it fears that he may ask alms of him. ~ Chanakya

On 28-01-2018 All charities and sacrifices (performed for fruitive gain) bring only temporary results, but gifts made to deserving persons (those who are Krishna consciousness) and protection offered to all creatures shall never perish. ~ Chanakya

On 27-01-2018 Those who were not satiated with the enjoyment of wealth, food and women have all passed away; there are others now passing away who have likewise remained unsatiated; and in the future still others will pass away feeling themselves unsatiated. ~ Chanakya

On 26-01-2018 I do not deserve that wealth which is to be attained by enduring much suffering, or by transgressing the rules of virtue, or by flattering an enemy. ~ Chanakya

On 25-01-2018 Even one who by his qualities appears to be all knowing suffers without patronage; the gem, though precious, requires a gold setting. ~ Chanakya

On 24-01-2018 If good qualities should characterize a man of discrimination, the brilliance of his qualities will be recognized just as a gem which is essentially bright really shines when fixed in an ornament of gold. ~ Chanakya

On 23-01-2018 The man who is praised by others as great is regarded as worthy though he may be really void of all merit. But the man who sings his own praises lowers himself in the estimation of others though he should be Indra (the possessor of all excellence). ~ Chanakya

On 22-01-2018 A man attains greatness by his merits, not simply by occupying an exalted seat. Can we call a crow an eagle (garuda) simply because he sits on the top of a tall building. ~ Chanakya

On 21-01-2018 Who is there who, having become rich, has not become proud? Which licentious (Free) man has put an end to his calamities (A grievous disaster)? Which man in this world has not been overcome by a woman? Who is always loved by the king? Who is there who has not been overcome by the ravages of time? Which beggar has attained glory? Who has become happy by contracting the vices of the wicked? ~ Chanakya

On 20-01-2018 Although sandalwood be cut, it does not forsake its natural quality of fragrance; so also the elephant does not give up sportiness though he should grow old. The sugarcane does not cease to be sweet though squeezed in a mill; so the man of noble extraction does not lose his lofty qualities, no matter how pinched he is by poverty. ~ Chanakya

On 19-01-2018 There are many ways of binding by which one can be dominated and controlled in this world, but the bond of affection is the strongest. For example, take the case of the humble bee which, although expert at piercing hardened wood, becomes caught in the embrace of its beloved flowers (as the petals close at dusk). ~ Chanakya

On 18-01-2018 (Lord Visnu asked His spouse Lakshmi why She did not care to live in the house of a brahmana, when She replied) 'O Lord a rishi named Agastya drank up My father (the ocean) in anger; Brighu Muni kicked You; brahmanas pride themselves on their learning having sought the favour of My competitor Sarasvati; and lastly they pluck each day the lotus which is My abode, and therewith worship Lord Shiva. Therefore, O Lord, I fear to dwell with a brahmana and that properly.' ~ Chanakya

On 17-01-2018 This humble bee, who always resides among the soft petals of the lotus and drinks abundantly its sweet nectar, is now feasting on the flower of the ordinary kutaja. Being in a strange country where the lotuses do not exist, he is considering the pollen of the kutaja to be nice. ~ Chanakya

On 16-01-2018 The moon, who is the abode of nectar and the presiding deity of all medicines, although immortal like amrta and resplendent in form, loses the brilliance of his rays when he repairs to the abode of the sun (day time). Therefore will not an ordinary man be made to feel inferior by going to live at the house of another. ~ Chanakya

On 15-01-2018 Those blessed souls are certainly elevated who, while crossing the ocean of life, take shelter of a genuine brahmana, who is likened unto a boat. They are unlike passengers aboard an ordinary ship which runs the risk of sinking. ~ Chanakya

On 14-01-2018 One may know the four Vedas and the Dharma-sastras, yet if he has no realization of his own spiritual self, he can be said to be like the ladle which stirs all kinds of foods but knows not the taste of any. ~ Chanakya

On 13-01-2018 He is a chandala who eats his dinner without entertaining the stranger who has come to his house quite accidentally, having traveled from a long distance and is wearied. ~ Chanakya

On 12-01-2018 Sastric knowledge is unlimited, and the arts to be learned are many; the time we have is short, and our opportunities to learn are beset with obstacles. Therefore select for learning that which is most important, just as the swan drinks only the milk in water. ~ Chanakya

On 11-01-2018 For want of discernment the most precious jewels lie in the dust at the feet of men while bits of glass are worn on their heads. But we should not imagine that the gems have sunk in value, and the bits of glass have risen in importance. When a person of critical judgement shall appear, each will be given its right position. ~ Chanakya

On 09-01-2018 A true meal is that which consists of the remnants left after a brahmana's meal. Love which is shown to others is true love, not that which is cherished for one's own self. To abstain from sin is true wisdom. That is an act of charity which is performed without ostentation. ~ Chanakya

On 08-01-2018 A bad action committed by a great man is not censured (as there is none that can reproach him), and a good action performed by a low-class man comes to be condemned (because none respects him). Just see: the drinking of nectar is excellent, but it became the cause of Rahu's demise; and the drinking of poison is harmful, but when Lord Shiva (who is exalted) drank it, it became an ornament to his neck (nilakanta). ~ Chanakya

On 07-01-2018 Sinfully acquired wealth may remain for ten years; in the eleventh year it disappears with even the original stock. ~ Chanakya

On 06-01-2018 He who loses his money is forsaken by his friends, his wife, his servants and his relations; yet when he regains his riches those who have forsaken him come back to him. Hence wealth is certainly the best of relations. ~ Chanakya

On 05-01-2018 He who wears unclean garments, has dirty teeth, as a glutton, speaks unkindly and sleeps after sunrise -- although he may be the greatest personality -- will lose the favor of Lakshmi. ~ Chanakya

On 04-01-2018 There are two ways to get rid of thorns and wicked persons; using footwear in the first case and in the second shaming them so that they cannot raise their faces again thus keeping them at a distance. ~ Chanakya

On 02-01-2018 There is no treasure on earth the gift of which will cancel the debt a disciple owes his guru for having taught him even a single letter. ~ Chanakya

On 01-01-2018 Eschew (Avoid) wicked company and associate with saintly persons. Acquire virtue day and night, and always meditate on that which is eternal forgetting that which is temporary. ~ Chanakya

On 31-12-2017 We should secure and keep the following: the blessings of meritorious deeds, wealth, grain, the words of the spiritual master, and rare medicines. Otherwise life becomes impossible. ~ Chanakya

On 30-12-2017 The cuckoos remain silent for a long time (for several seasons) until they are able to sing sweetly (in the Spring ) so as to give joy to all. ~ Chanakya

On 29-12-2017 A wise man should not divulge the formula of a medicine which he has well prepared; an act of charity which he has performed; domestic conflicts; private affairs with his wife; poorly prepared food he may have been offered; or slang he may have heard. ~ Chanakya

On 28-12-2017 One single object (a woman) appears in three different ways: to the man who practices austerity it appears as a corpse, to the sensual it appears as a woman, and to the dogs as a lump of flesh. ~ Chanakya

On 27-12-2017 He is a pandit (man of knowledge) who speaks what is suitable to the occasion, who renders loving service according to his ability, and who knows the limits of his anger. ~ Chanakya

On 26-12-2017 If you wish to gain control of the world by the performance of a single deed, then keep the following fifteen, which are prone to wander here and there, from getting the upper hand of you: the five sense objects (objects of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch); the five sense organs (ears, eyes, nose, tongue and skin) and organs of activity (hands, legs, mouth, genitals and anus). ~ Chanakya

On 25-12-2017 He should be considered to be living who is virtuous and pious, but the life of a man who is destitute of religion and virtues is void of any blessing. ~ Chanakya

On 24-12-2017 We should always speak what would please the man of whom we expect a favor, like the hunter who sings sweetly when he desires to shoot a deer. ~ Chanakya

On 23-12-2017 He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby. ~ Chanakya

On 22-12-2017 We should not feel pride in our charity, austerity, valor, scriptural knowledge, modesty and morality for the world is full of the rarest gems. ~ Chanakya

On 21-12-2017 If a man should feel before, as he feels after, repentance -- then who would not attain perfection? ~ Chanakya

On 20-12-2017 If men should always retain the state of mind they experience when hearing religious instruction, when present at a crematorium ground, and when in sickness -- then who could not attain liberation. ~ Chanakya

On 19-12-2017 Oil on water, a secret communicated to a base man, a gift given to a worthy receiver, and scriptural instruction given to an intelligent man spread out by virtue of their nature. ~ Chanakya

On 18-12-2017 The enemy can be overcome by the union of large numbers, just as grass through its collectiveness wards off erosion caused by heavy rainfall. ~ Chanakya

On 17-12-2017 Wealth, a friend, a wife, and a kingdom may be regained; but this body when lost may never be acquired again. ~ Chanakya

On 16-12-2017 Poverty, disease, sorrow, imprisonment and other evils are the fruits borne by the tree of one's own sins. ~ Chanakya

On 15-12-2017 There are three gems upon this earth; food, water, and pleasing words -- fools (mudhas) consider pieces of rocks as gems. ~ Chanakya

On 13-12-2017 At the end of the yuga, Mount Meru may be shaken; at the end of the kalpa, the waters of the seven oceans may be disturbed; but a sadhu will never swerve from the spiritual path. ~ Chanakya

On 12-12-2017 Even the man who has taught the spiritual significance of just one letter ought to be worshiped. He who does not give reverence to such a guru is born as a dog a hundred times, and at last takes birth as a chandala (dog-eater). ~ Chanakya

On 11-12-2017 Men reap the fruits of their deeds, and intellects bear the mark of deeds performed in previous lives; even so the wise act after due circumspection. ~ Chanakya

On 10-12-2017 As the man who digs obtains underground water by use of a shovel, so the student attains the knowledge possessed by his preceptor through his service. ~ Chanakya

On 09-12-2017 He whose actions are disorganized has no happiness either in the midst of men or in a jungle -- in the midst of men his heart burns by social contacts, and his helplessness burns him in the forest. ~ Chanakya

On 08-12-2017 As a calf follows its mother among a thousand cows, so the (good or bad) deeds of a man follow him. ~ Chanakya

On 07-12-2017 Who realizes all the happiness he desires? Everything is in the hands of God. Therefore one should learn contentment. ~ Chanakya

On 06-12-2017 He who sheds bodily identification by means of knowledge of the indwelling Supreme Self (Paramatma), will always be absorbed in meditative trance (samadhi) wherever his mind leads him. ~ Chanakya

On 05-12-2017 Excessive attachment to sense pleasures leads to bondage, and detachment from sense pleasures leads to liberation; therefore it is the mind alone that is responsible for bondage or liberation. ~ Chanakya

On 04-12-2017 The hearts of base men burn before the fire of other's fame, and they slander them being themselves unable to rise to such a high position. ~ Chanakya

On 03-12-2017 He who has acquired neither virtue, wealth, satisfaction of desires nor salvation (dharma, artha, kama, moksa), lives an utterly useless life, like the "nipples" hanging from the neck of a goat. ~ Chanakya

On 02-12-2017 I consider him who does not act religiously as dead though living, but he who dies acting religiously unquestionably lives long though he is dead. ~ Chanakya

On 01-12-2017 If the king is virtuous, then the subjects are also virtuous. If the king is sinful, then the subjects also become sinful. If he is mediocre, then the subjects are mediocre. The subjects follow the example of the king. In short, as is the king so are the subjects. ~ Chanakya

On 30-11-2017 He who is prepared for the future and he who deals cleverly with any situation that may arise are both happy; but the fatalistic man who wholly depends on luck is ruined. ~ Chanakya

On 29-11-2017 He who is overly attached to his family members experiences fear and sorrow, for the root of all grief is attachment. Thus one should discard attachment to be happy. ~ Chanakya

On 28-11-2017 O see what a wonder it is! The doings of the great are strange: they treat wealth as light as a straw, yet, when they obtain it, they bend under its weight. ~ Chanakya

On 27-11-2017 Even as the unborn babe is in the womb of his mother, these five are fixed as his life destiny: his life span, his activities, his acquisition of wealth and knowledge, and his time of death. ~ Chanakya

On 26-11-2017 It certainly is nature of the demigods, men of good character, and parents to be easily pleased. Near and distant relatives are pleased when they are hospitably received with bathing, food, and drink; and pandits are pleased with an opportunity for giving spiritual discourse. ~ Chanakya

On 25-11-2017 We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment. ~ Chanakya

On 24-11-2017 A man may live but for a moment, but that moment should be spent in doing auspicious deeds. It is useless living even for a kalpa (4,320,000*1000 years) and bringing only distress upon the two worlds (this world and the next). ~ Chanakya

On 23-11-2017 The man who remains a fool even in advanced age is really a fool, just as the Indra-Varuna fruit does not become sweet no matter how ripe it might become. ~ Chanakya

On 22-11-2017 As centesimal droppings will fill a pot so also are knowledge, virtue and wealth gradually obtained. ~ Chanakya

On 21-11-2017 He who is not shy in the acquisition of wealth, grain and knowledge, and in taking his meals, will be happy. ~ Chanakya

On 20-11-2017 The unthinking spender, the homeless urchin, the quarrel monger, the man who neglects his wife and is heedless in his actions -- all these will soon come to ruination. ~ Chanakya

On 19-11-2017 Realized learning (vidya) is our friend while travelling, the wife is a friend at home, medicine is the friend of a sick man, and meritorious deeds are the friends at death. ~ Chanakya
