Code of Conduct: Code of conduct is a set of rules. Definition of 'Code of Conduct' as per Dictionary: A set of principles and expectations that are considered binding on any person who is a member of a particular group. In my understanding Gurbani is Code of Conduct for a Bhagat/Sikh/Devotee. A certified Code for every Human who becomes God's Devotee(God Oriented) with His Grace. This Code of Conduct can be used by anybody irrespective of color/cast/religion/language. I am starting to collect Gurbani verses those particularly lay stress on a certain behaviour and help us shape our conduct as a true servant of God-Gurmukh.

And how can the veil of illusion be torn away? ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ਚਲਣਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥ hukam rajaaee chalanaa naanak likhiaa naal ||1|| O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will. ||1|| Gurbani eis jag meh chaanan Gurbani har alakh lakhiayaa Gurbani Gavo Bhaee charan kamal parabh kay nit Dhi-aava-o Here Guru Ji is telling us: Outer Cleansing doesn't help in cleaning the inner malice. Real cleaning needs to be done, that is Mind needs to be washed off of the malice. By remaining silent(not talking to anyone) the ever chattering mind can't be stopped from wandering around. Real silence has to be observed, that is mind needs to be stabalized. By staying hungry, observing fasts, one cant stop the hunger of the mind. Thousands of worldly clever tricks do not go with a person, in the end. They are of no use when you actually need help. For a Truthful person there said to be four main qualities: His Mind is Clean(devoid of Malice). His mind is stabalized. He is satisfied. All his needs are met(nothing is impossible). To get all those qualities one need to come under God's Command. There is no other way like- fasting/observing silence etc. Surrender. Accept all that is happening-as He is The Karta Purkh-Ikoankaar.
