1.7 Chanakya Niti

आपदर्थे धनं रक्षेच्छ्रीमतां कुत आपदः ।
कदाचिच्चलते लक्ष्मीः सञ्चितोऽपि विनश्यति ॥१.७॥

āpadarthe dhanaṃ rakṣecchrīmatāṃ kuta āpadaḥ |
kadāciccalate lakṣmīḥ sañcito’api vinaśyati ||1.7||

for times of crisis, wealth should be protected by keeping it undisclosed hidden away, meant to be used only in crisis; for perhaps the unsteady Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, may destroy all accumulated disclosed wealth

Excerpt from the book “Old Chanakya Strategy: Aphorisms” by Rajen Jani
