1. Ignorance hinders progress.
(Kabirji, Asa Rag)
2. The ignorant man wastes his valuable life,
And cuts at his own roots.
(Guru V, Gauri Rag)
3. The more one reads,
The more agitated one becomes.
(Guru I, Asa Rag)
4. The house of wood is on fire from all sides,
The Pandits are burnt to ashes;
The fools have saved their lives by running away.
