Chanakya Neeti 14
A greedy Brahmin and a satisfied king are criticized, a bashful hooker and a shameless housewife is looked down upon.
Well I can say ditto to 1, 3 and 4 but don’t know exactly what he meant by satisfied king, if he meant an a king inactive about his imperial duties, satisfied with the ways things were in his kingdom, guess he is right, because he will be criticized for sure, his council sure will go rogue if he snoozes on the throne! The public will pay the price of his snoozing!
Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
As I am too engrossed with my twins (agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com and agnijaat.wordpress.com- check them out guys, my twin Ezines Agnishatdal and Agnijaat) I will use him as my own and your teacher for at least a couple of months. Hope you will benefit too!
