niti (‘that which leads [towards the good]’) In the most general sense, the word ‘nīti’ means ‘morality’ and ‘ethics’. In course of time, it came to be considered as an abbreviation of rājanīti or political science. The word is also used to indicate any systematised form of thought like Śukra- nīti and Viduranīti. Dharma, which is a more comprehen¬sive word, includes nīti also.
