Going to the door of the pious and seeking support. Nanak such finds all the comforts.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 15, 6th sabad describe the great benefit in being with respectful association of the learned and pious. Manifestations of respect and association of the learned include humility, trust, sacrifices through actions towards the learned. Guru ji state that only with good fortune one finds great learned and one should so sing virtues of the creator in such company. Many an obstacles are averted through wisdom and understanding


Guru ji conclude that all comforts come when seeking support at the door of the pious.
Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.
