5.17 Chanakya Niti

नास्ति मेघसमं तोयं नास्ति चात्मसमं बलम् ।
नास्ति चक्षुःसमं तेजो नास्ति धान्यसमं प्रियम् ॥५.१७॥

nāsti meghasamaṃ toyaṃ nāsti cātmasamaṃ balam |
nāsti cakṣuḥsamaṃ tejo nāsti dhānyasamaṃ priyam ||5.17||

no water like rainwater, no strength like Atma, no light like eyes, and no beloved like food

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