And will be born again a dog; He who takes pride in the beauty of his person,
Becomes a vermin of filth; He who vaunts his ritualism,
Wanders through many incarnations; He who boasts of wealth and estate,
Betrays his folly, blindness and ignorance; Nanak, he in whose heart the Gracious Provi dence instils humility,Attains salvation in this world and beatitude in
the next.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
