We all know why Chankaya conspired to throw the mighty Nanda dynasty. I already gave the story how he was insulted for being ugly. so no wonder Chanakya gives the following advice:

 

“A wise man should marry a girl of a good family, though she be ugly, and not the beautiful one (the daughter) of a lowly family. Marriage has to be in a matching family”-

chapter 1, sloka 14 of Chanakya Niti.

 

varayet kulajaam praaknjo virupaamapi kanyakaam

ruupavatiir wa niichasya vivaahah sadruse kule

in chapter 3, he says sukule yojayet kanyaam i.e one should marry a daughter in a good family

 

ONLY ONCE

Chanakya continues,”The kings speak but once, so do the learned men

Girls are given in marriage but once.

All these take place but once.”

sakrujjalpanti raajaanah sakrujjalpanti panditaah

sakrytkanyaah pradiiyante triinyetaani sakrut sakrut

chapter 4, sloka 11

A young woman for an old man is poison

vruddhasya tarunii visham- says in chapter 4.

WHO IS A GOOD WIFE?

Chanakya defines a good wife,

“That one is a good wife who is pure, efficient, devoted to husband, liked by him and is truthful”.

saa bhaaryaa yaa suchirdakshaa saa bhaaryaa yaa pativrata

saa bharyaa yaa patipriitaa saa bharyaa satyavaadinii

chapter 4, sloka 13

If couple don’t quarrel, fortune comes!

 

“Where the fools are not adored,

where there is a good store of food grains,

where the couples do not quarrel,

fortune comes there herself”

muurkhaa yatra na puujyante dhaanyam yatra susanchitam

dampatyooh kalaho naasti tatra sriih svayamaagataa

chapter 3, sloka 21.

WIFE OF A FRIEND= MOTHER!

The wife of the king, the wife of the teacher, the wife of a friend, the mother of the wife (the mother in law), and one’s own mother are said to be mothers

Chanakya Niti, chapter 4, sloka 2o

 

xxx SUBHAM xxx
