It is better when temples give less arshan (elixir) and more teachings to people. Do not grab the leopard by its tail, but if you have grabbed it - do not let it go. The gambler does not have peace, and a drunk person does not have a clear mind. Meet people while your father is still alive, and travel wide while your horse is strong. What you have learned, cannot be strangled away with a rope. If the tree has many branches, it is easier to climb on it, if a person has many brothers, it is easier for him in life. Every person has someone who is senior than they are in the way that every coat has a color on top. A person can be judged from his/her childhood, and a stallion can be judged from when it is a foal. If you look closely, even a strong stallion will seem like a feeble foal. A drunk person has a loose mouth. When a big cloud appears, there is not peace in the sky, and when people gossip around there is no peace in the nomadic camp. If you break your arm, hide it underneath your sleeve; if you injure your head, hide it under your hat (i.e. do not hang your dirty clothes in public).
