The Sukraniti - An Old Book
The Sukraniti - An Old Book
Description

About the Book:

Sukraniti occupies an important position in Indian literature, primarily as a work of secular nature, providing much information on the positive background and foundations of Hindu culture and sociology. This 'Treatise on Morals' of the sage Sukracharya was also asserted to be the sole authoritative text-book on political science which should be used by kings and statesmen. For the historian it provides ample data on the social, economic and political life of the times. Besides, it is a mine of information on geography, climate and soils, meteorology, geology, flora and fauna, ethnology, architectonics, mineralogy, metallurgy, botany, zoology, etc.

The present translation of Sukraniti by Prof. Benoy Kumar Sarkar fulfils the long-left need of scholars interested in the subject. The book is divided into five chapters of which the first three deal with the duties of the princes, the functions of the crown prince and other state officials, and general rules of morality. The fourth chapter, divided into seven sections, discusses the characteristics of friends, treasure, arts and sciences, social customs and institutions, the king's functions, fortresses and the army. The last chapter spells out the rules of morality laid down in the Sastras for the welfare of the State and the people. An index to important Sanskrit words in Sukraniti and an English index have further enhanced the value of the book.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
