    Even when someone hurts us , we should be benevolent to them - like the tree that harbours no ill will against the person who cuts it, instead wishes that its remains be useful to the person cutting it.

    ਸਸਤ੍ਰਿ ਤੀਖਣਿ ਕਾਟਿ ਡਾਰਿਓ ਮਨਿ ਨ ਕੀਨੋ ਰੋਸੁ ॥

    The sharp tool cuts down the tree, but it does not feel anger in

    ਕਾਜੁ ਉਆ ਕੋ ਲੇ ਸਵਾਰਿਓ ਤਿਲੁ ਨ ਦੀਨੋ ਦੋਸੁ ॥੧॥
    Kaaj Ouaa Ko Lae Savaariou Thil N Dheeno Dhos ||1||
    It serves the purpose of the cutter, and does not blame him at all. ||1||
