According to Srila Prabhupada, Canakya Pandita made important contributions to wisdom. Witness this quote from Srila Prabhupada: “Even in the ordinary moral codes (maintained by Canakya Pandita, the great politician and moralist) there is no harm in taking lessons from a person who may be by birth less than a sudra.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.15/purport.)
