ESSENCE: In the salok, Guru ji talk about the esteemed wise. One with pure mind, pure speech and recognizing of but one creator.

Guru Arjan Dev ji in Astpadi 8, 3rd stanza/hymn, state qualities of the esteemed learned. Humble as dust, in touch with internal soul, doing good to others and not bad, treats all as same and persona so reflects, has unshackled self from attachments and lives in purity.
