The person who adopts these things will succeed in whatever he does
  • To save the future troubles, one should raise money, even the rich, because when money starts decreasing and going out of our hands, then saved wealth also starts decreasing rapidly.

    – There is no way to earn employment,
    – The people are not afraid of anything,

    – Where there are no intelligent people,
    – And where people do not know how to do charity.

Thoughts of Acharya Chanakya related to friends, relatives and family members
  • Investigate relatives when you are in trouble.
  • A good friend is the one who needs your help when needed, and then help you in the accident.
  • Earth is the only heaven for that person:
    – whose son he considers his point
    – whose wife behaves according to his good.
    – who has satisfaction over his wealth.
  • The son is the one who obeys the father, the father is the one who can raise the children, and the wife is the one who receives happiness.
  • You should never tell any secret to any friend, because even a sure friend can open up all your secrets when angry.
  • Father should always teach his children good and bad because the wise people are respected in the society.

  • For five years, the son should follow with love and affection, for ten years he is scared by the stick. But after that, behave like a friend because your grown son is you and you are his best friend.
  • A child who was dead while being born, is better than a stupid longevity child. The first child saddles for a moment, the second child burns his parents in the fire of grief throughout life.

    1. Accommodation in a small village where accommodation facility is not available.
    2. Consume unhealthy food.
    3. Whose wife is always angry
    4. Who is a foolish son.
    5. whose daughter is a widow.
    6. Work under the person with the least qualifications.
