One may read thousands of books, with a cart load of books to follow,
One may study innumerable epics or fill,
One's cellars with volumes of study,
One may read for generations and generations,
And spend every month in the year studying
And one may read one's entire life,
Right up to one's last breath,
Sayeth Nanak, there is one truth God's name only,
All else is vanity of the egoistic mind.
