English Translation

Cursed are the lives of those who read and write the Lord's Name to sell it. Their crop is devastated- What harvest will they have? Lacking truth and humility, they shall not be appreciated in the world hereafter. Wisdom which leads us to serve our Lord and Master; through wisdom, honor is obtained. Wisdom does not come by reading textbooks; wisdom inspires us to give in charity. Says Nanak, this is the path; other things lead to Satan. (Translation: S. S. Khalsa)
