Though he was an impoverished brāhmaṇa scholar, Cāṇakya Paṇḍita created one of the largest empires in ancient times. In the same era that Buddha walked the earth, this indomitable sage united many disjointed kingdoms from modern day Bihar to Iran using only his wit as his weapon. He is celebrated as the greatest king maker in history. During the days of Britain’s East India Company, English officers were required to study Śrī Cāṇakya-nīti if they hoped to be successful in India. Now that same wisdom commented upon by the world’s greatest authority on Cāṇakya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, is available for the first time in one volume. Cāṇakya’s nīti-his ancient sense for modern success-is presented with the original Sanskrit, Latin transliterations, lucid translations, plus the commentaries of Śrīla Prabhupāda and much more. Practically every recorded statement that His Divine Grace ever made about the great Cāṇakya can be found here in this definitive edition. For the modern reader, the wisdom of Cāṇakya is nothing less than the key to a life that is in every way successful, happy and fulfilled.
