A few teachings-Kade kise da bura na socho, na kise da bura karo and conquer the mind conquer the world.
Even Clarion call was recited by the students Aagya bhayi Akal ki, tabhe chalayo panth………The students learn that Guru Granth Sahib, a remarkable storehouse of knowledge and teachings gives the message of love and service to the society. We should follow the teachings.
