2.6 Chanakya Niti

न विश्वसेत्कुमित्रे च मित्रे चापि न विश्वसेत् ।
कदाचित्कुपितं मित्रं सर्वं गुह्यं प्रकाशयेत् ॥२.६॥

na viśvasetkumitre ca mitre cāpi na viśvaset |
kadācitkupitaṃ mitraṃ sarvaṃ guhyaṃ prakāśayet ||2.6||

do not trust a duplicity practicing friend, and also trust not a friend; for if the friend becomes angry, then all secrets he will reveal

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