3.12 Chanakya Niti

अतिरूपेण वा सीता अतिगर्वेण रावणः ।
अतिदानाद्बलिर्बद्धो ह्यतिसर्वत्र वर्जयेत् ॥३.१२॥

atirūpeṇa vā sītā atigarveṇa rāvaṇaḥ |
atidānādbalirbaddho hyatisarvatra varjayet ||3.12||

due to her extreme beauty, Sita was abducted; due to his extreme pride, Ravana was killed; due to his extreme charity, Bali was bounded; therefore extreme in everything, should be debarred

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