Kautilya: Understanding the Colossal Genius (Volume 1)

$15.99 $15.00



Around two thousand years ago there was a person of great intellect, influence, and motivation. We don’t know much about his personal life, although there are many extraordinary legends about him. He was neither a warrior nor a ruler, nor a priest. He was a wise sage – a rishi – who rewrote two Vedic treatises, namely: Arthashastra and Artha Sutras. His name was Kautilya (a.k.a. Chanakya a.k.a. Vishnu Gupta a.k.a. Vishnu Sharma.) Kautilya’s Arthashastra contains many vital principles of management, governance, and polity that can be used with high efficacy to the present day. They can provide keys to solving a great many problems threatening our new high-tech world order by nurturing responsible and effective leadership. Although there are several translations of Kautilya’s Arthashastra, most of its in-depth knowledge and wisdom is neither properly understood nor utilized for various reasons. Also, much of its secrets remain hidden. Presenting his time-tested knowledge and wisdom with sharp insight into contemporary leadership, politics, and diplomacy is the prime objective of this book series Kautilya: Understanding the Colossal Genius.
