5.22 Chanakya Niti

जनिता चोपनेता च यस्तु विद्यां प्रयच्छति ।
अन्नदाता भयत्राता पञ्चैते पितरः स्मृताः ॥५.२२॥

janitā copanetā ca yastu vidyāṃ prayaccati |
annadātā bhayatrātā pañcaite pitaraḥ smṛtāḥ ||5.22||

one who gave birth, one who girdles the sacred thread, one who teaches, one who provides food, and one who protects from fear, these five are your fathers, remember

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