Listening to the teachings of the Guru, the Sikh becomes wise internally though apparently he looks a simpleton.
He with full care keeps his consciousness attuned to the Word and listens to nothing except the words of Guru.
He beholds the true Guru and without the company of the saints feels himself blind and deaf.
The Guru's word he receives is Vahiguru, the wondrous Lord, and remains silently immersed in delight.
He bows on the feet and becoming (humble) like dust goes on quaffing the nectar of the feet (of the Lord).
He remains involved like black bee in the lotus feet (of the Guru) and thus living in this world ocean remains unsmeared (by its water and dust).
His is life of a liberated one during the life on earth i.e. he is a jivanmukt'.
