5.7 Chanakya Niti

आलस्योपगता विद्या परहस्तगतं धनम् ।
अल्पबीजं हतं क्षेत्रं हतं सैन्यमनायकम् ॥५.७॥

ālasyopagatā vidyā parahastagataṃ dhanam |
alpabījaṃ hataṃ kṣetraṃ hataṃ sainyamanāyakam ||5.7||

by laziness, the usefulness of knowledge is damaged; by others controlling one’s own wealth, the convenience of wealth is damaged; by sowing little seed, the field is damaged; by having no commander, the army is damaged

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