A collection of over a hundred epigrams on ancient Indian morals, policy, worldly wisdom, the law of ideal conduct, giving insight into the turns and forces determining the movement of human character and action.

Originally written in Sanskrit, the Neetishataka of Bhartrihari contains and expresses, in Sri Aurobindo's words, high ethical thought or wordly wisdom or brief criticisms of aspects of life . This work is particularly significant as it underlines one of the three leading motives of the mind of the age, its reflective interest in life and turn for high and strong and minute thinking .

This book contains the original Sanskrit verses with English transliteration and translation.
