This article is part of the series on the "Message of Gurbani"

Gurbani on eat, sleep and talk little:


ਹਾਟੁ ਪਟਣੁ ਘਰੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਦਿਖਾਇਆ ਸਹਜੇ ਸਚੁ ਵਾਪਾਰੋ ॥ ਖੰਡਿਤ ਨਿਦ੍ਰਾ ਅਲਪ ਅਹਾਰੰ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਤੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੋ ॥੮॥
Hāt pataṇ gẖar gurū ḏikẖā▫i▫ā sėhje sacẖ vāpāro. Kẖandiṯ niḏrā alap ahāraʼn Nānak ṯaṯ bīcẖāro. ((8))
The Guru has revealed the stores and the city within the home of my own heart, where I intuitively carry on the true trade.
Sleep little, and eat little; O Nanak, this is the essence of wisdom". ((8))


ਰੈਣਿ ਗਵਾਈ ਸੋਇ ਕੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ਖਾਇ ॥ ਹੀਰੇ ਜੈਸਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਹੈ ਕਉਡੀ ਬਦਲੇ ਜਾਇ ॥੧॥
Raiṇ gavā▫ī so▫e kai ḏivas gavā▫i▫ā kẖā▫e. Hīre jaisā janam hai ka▫udī baḏle jā▫e. ((1))
The nights are wasted sleeping, and the days are wasted eating.

Human life is such a precious jewel, but it is being lost in exchange for a mere shell. ((1))


ਨਾਨਕ ਆਏ ਸੇ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ਹੈ ਜਿਨ ਹਰਿ ਵੁਠਾ ਚਿਤਿ ॥ ਗਾਲ੍ਹ੍ਹੀ ਅਲ ਪਲਾਲੀਆ ਕੰਮਿ ਨ ਆਵਹਿ ਮਿਤ ॥੧॥
Nānak ā▫e se parvāṇ hai jin har vuṯẖā cẖiṯ. Gālĥī al palālī▫ā kamm na āvahi miṯ. ((1))
O Nanak, approved is the birth of those, within whose consciousness the Lord abides.

Useless talk and babbling is useless, my friend. ((1))
