5.12 Chanakya Niti

नास्ति कामसमो व्याधिर्नास्ति मोहसमो रिपुः ।
नास्ति कोपसमो वह्निर्नास्ति ज्ञानात्परं सुखम् ॥५.१२॥

nāsti kāmasamo vyādhirnāsti mohasamo ripuḥ |
nāsti kopasamo vahnirnāsti jñānātparaṃ sukham ||5.12||

no disease like lust, no enemy like attachment, no fire like anger, no happiness like highest knowledge

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