Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 7, 1st stanza describe what happens when one finds company of a truly pious. The goodness shows, the dirt of mind is eliminated, ego is erased, better thoughts come about, one start seeing the creator in nearness many conflicts of mind are resolved. All this leads to resulting discovery of fundamental understanding through directed effort.
