5.3 Chanakya Niti

तावद्भयेषु भेतव्यं यावद्भयमनागतम् ।
आगतं तु भयं वीक्ष्य प्रहर्तव्यमशङ्कया ॥५.३॥

tāvadbhayeṣu bhetavyaṃ yāvadbhayamanāgatam |
āgataṃ tu bhayaṃ vīkṣya prahartavyamaśaṅkayā ||5.3||

the fearful may be feared, until it has not arrived; once it arrives, from all sides attack it doubtlessly

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