• Slander reduces the individual’s own respect and kills feelings of brotherhood.
• Unjustly slandering someone is such a serious and massive offence that there can be no recourse for it
• In the world, any patient suffering from a disease can be treated, but there is no treatment from a slanderer
• Spreading information about someone’s good or bad qualities without investigating for one’s self is idiocy.
• That person that slanders the Guru’s beloveds has his face blackened in this world and the next
• If you see a person with a fault, rather than slandering him before others, it is much better to educate him.
• To slander others to hide one’s own faults is a very lowly and disgusting sin.
• To see and dwell on someone’s faults is very easy, but to see faults and understand them is very diffcult.
• Almost everyone at some time does ninda, but to slander someone innocent or to do so with evil intent is a maha-paap.
• There are four types of ninda which are not sinful: that of a fake, that of someone opposed to the Guru, that of the ruler and one’s own ninda.
• Someone who unjustly slanders and opposes others will never see happiness or peace.
• Just like a dog’s tail can never be straightened, a nindak too will never leave his habit.
• If you give milk to a snake, it still strikes and spews venom. In the same way, if you do good to a nindak, he will still do bad to you.
• It is not wrong to join the ninda of those who are opposed to the Panth
• There is no person in existence who has not been slandered or wronged in some way.
• Only a true Soorbeer (warrior) can hear his own slander and remain uneffected
• To forget someone’s good qualities and to look only at the bad is to be even worse than the ant who sorts through the dirt to find the sand.
• The mighty and wealthy may be able to crush the poor and meek, but they cannot crush Vahiguru’s justice.
• The Jealous and hateful receive this punishment that their minds are never at peace.
• To cure the diseases of both the mind and body, the greatest medicine is to remain free of hatred and always remember Vahiguru
• Do not reply to the evil with evil. If you throw a rock at filth, it will only end up splattering on you.
• If the individual remains calm and peaceful after hearing hateful words, then the effect will reverse on to the
hateful individuals who spoke them.
• Having hatred towards others is the root of all bodily ills.
