The Kautilya’s Perspective on Wealth: Artha, Vyartha and Anartha

Kautilya advises, “Wealth has only three ends – it’s either spent on deserving people or things, misspent on undeserving people and things or just rots away and falls into the hands of others (deserving or undeserving).” Stagnant wealth is of no utility.

Ahimsa: A Vedic Perspective

Dharma is not doing to others what you don't like being done by someone else to you. Dharma is that which sustains the order in self (mind), family, society, nation and the world at large. Dharma is sustained by doing things where the strong don’t thrive by suppressing the weak and the weak are not subjugated by the strong. Dharma provides a way for people to live and let live. When there’s an imposition of someone else’s will on you or your own excesses on others, that’s Himsa, causing Adharma.

Kautilya’s Perspective on Justice & Revenge

In the absence of justice, error and evil thrive. Truly, evil only gets worse when those who are righteous resort to revenge and do not insist upon justice. The Ahimsa of Kautilya was based on the idea of Dharma. Ahimsa doesn’t mean you will never hurt anyone – it means you won’t hurt anyone unless they attack you first. It’s a no-first-strike policy. You can resort to retaliation during the war with pre-emptive strikes only if you are sure that the first strike would be brutal or lethal, leaving you no retaliatory capabilities.

Understanding Economy from the Vedic Perspective of Karma

In Vedic (or ancient) India, kings and their counsellors were first taught Artha Sutras, which, in very simple terms, explained complex connections between people’s pursuit of happiness, good conduct, the meaning and relevance of well-earned wealth, it’s relativity to governance, and the best suitors to hold key positions in government, and the like. In simple terms, these Sutras, or axioms, explained the connection between economics, politics, and diplomacy. That was also because, unless an individual understands those three subjects, it’s virtually impossible to understand a leader’s role, let alone deliver on it effectively.

Jealousy – the greatest slayer of wisdom and wealth

Jealousy is detrimental. It’s a travesty that our education systems preaches it to be almost otherwise. Since our education system is based on the logic of comparing achievement of one with another it in significant way harnesses it at every step of the way. When we see that someone is doing better than us – we first begin by being jealous of them and we do things to prove them otherwise. We cheat, use deceit and retort to almost anything without letting wisdom prevail. Jealousy may make us to do ultimate damage to our adversaries - once; but every moment we carry this jealousy in our mind – we are a living hell.

The Nature of Absolute Power

Absolute power, that which Vedic seers like Kautilya, Bhartrihari, and Bhardwaj taught, is that which makes a man brave and fearless. In the presence of fear, there can seldom be any enduring power. In life, all fears must be uprooted before we make a place for power. Whether power is to be used in material or spiritual pursuits, uprooting the fear is the key.

Uprooting Weakness and Awakening Power: A Vedic Kautilyan Perspective

The complexities of Vedic texts led to substantial misnomers. When people were unable to understand concepts, their interpretations were fictional – leading to scores of mythological tales. These misnomers and mythological ideas confused people further and away from Vedic knowledge and wisdom. There were either renunciates or extreme materialists. Although there were many Vedic seers who insisted on balance to be the perfect path – or Yoga – their logic was too confusing. Politics, therefore, became a domain of extreme materialists and greed-filled individuals.

Kautilya’s strategy for defeating militant Islam in the West

There’s a reason why Kautilya didn’t suggest direct armed conflicts or war. He proposed the idea of Sam, Dam, Dand and Bhed. Bhed implied war and it always came last. The options before Bhed were more incisive and meticulous. It sought after every possible way to resolve a conflict using extremely peaceful to complexly tactful means. It often began with contemplation, followed by actions that were not extreme but capable of bringing one’s enemy to his senses or heels.
