When Guru Nanak Dev Ji was bestowing gurgaddi to Sri Lehna Ji, they delivered teachings related to wisdom and devotional worship: ਅਹੰ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਜੋ ਗਯਾਨ ਮੁਕੰਦਾ । ਜਿਸ ਤੇ ਪ੍ਰਾਪਤਿ ਨਿਤ ਅਨੰਦਾ । ਸੋ ਤੌ ਨੀਕੇ ਹਿਰਦੇ ਮਾਂਹੀ । ਮੁਖ ਤੇ ਕਹਿਨ ਭਲੋ ਅਬ ਨਾਂਹੀ ।੪੮। 'I am Brahm', is the liberating wisdom, which upon obtaining grants eternal bliss. Properly enshrine that in your heart, but now its not proper to say it out loud. ਬੋਲਨ ਭਾਉ ਭਗਤਿ ਕੀ ਰੀਤੀ । ਸਤਿ ਸੰਗਤਿ ਕਰਨੋਂ ਯੁਤ ਪ੍ਰੀਤੀ । ਅਪਨ ਆਪ ਕੋ ਕਬਿ ਨ ਜਨਾਵਨ । ਗੁਰ ਸੇਵਨ ਦਿਨ ਰੈਨ ਬਿਤਾਵਨ ।੪੯। In speaking, tell of the tradition of devotional worship, to have love with the true congregation. Do not ever direct attention to yourself, day and night speak of serving the Guru. ਜਿਸ ਅਚਾਰ ਕੋ ਨਰ ਸਭਿ ਦੇਖਾ । ਲਗਹਿ ਕਰਨ, ਹੈ ਭਲਾ ਵਿਸ਼ੇਖਾ । ਸਭਿ ਤੇ ਨੀਚ ਆਪਕੋ ਮਾਨੈਂ । ਰਿਦੇ ਹੰਕਾਰ ਨ ਕਬਹੂੰ ਠਾਨੈਂ ।੫੦। Perform such conduct, when seen by all, they understand it as great and also take part. Recognize yourself as the lowest of the low, never let any arrogance in your heart take hold. Guru Nanak then proceeds to tell Sri Lehna Ji that wisdom is akin to clarified butter, by itself can lead to illness, rather it should be mixed with a loving engagement with the Divine, akin to sugar.
