1. False is his speech and he usurps what is not his.
And yet he goes out to preach to the others;
He, who himself is beguiled, will beguile his company too;
(But) such, Nanak, today are the leaders of men. (Var of Majh, Shloka, M. 1)
2. One should first instruct and discipline one’s own mind,
And then persuade the other to follow. (Asa, M. 5)
3. He who instructs others in the laws which he himself does not obey,
Is born only to die; he comes and he goes. (Gauri Sukhmani, M. 5)
