HEERA SOHI SARAHIYE : हीरा सोई सराहिये

हीरा सोई सराहिये
सहे घनन की चोंट।
कपट कुरंगी मानवा
परखत निकरा खोट ।।
( Admire the diamond that can bear the hits of a hammer. Many deceptive preachers, when critically examined, turn out to be false.) 

हीरा तहां न खोलिए
जहाँ कुंजड़ों की हाट ।
सहजै गांठी बांधके
लगिये अपनी बांट ।।
( Don't open your diamonds in a vegetable market. Tie them in bundle and keep them in your heart, and go your own way.) 

हीरा पारा बाज़ार में
रहा छार लपटाए ।
केतिहि मूरख पचि मुये
कोई पारखी लिया उठाये ।।

(A diamond was laying in the street covered with dirt. Many fools passed by. Someone who knew diamonds picked it up)
