who's False.

4. We know the Truth when the heart is True,
And we cleanse our body of Falsehood and make it Pure.

We know the Truth, when we love the Truth.

But Nanak's prayerful call is to those whose (only) possession is the
Lord's Truth.

Then, Truth is the Profit it yields, and so is one brimful with the
