Four Types of Conversations

1) Heth - Where you listen to someone because you know they have more kamai and more knowledge than you. You are humble when listening. This also applies to school.

2) Vaadha - Where you actually do your research and share to positively add to a conversation constructively. Even if there is disagreement, you should not hurt another's feelings or prove that you are better.

3) Jalapa - Where you say stuff to put the other down. Try to make yourself look good.

4) Vitaardha - Where you keep talking and don't listen to anyone else (the majority of us).

*** This is from a sakhi where some pundits asked Guru Hargobind Ji what type of conversations are allowed. Guru Hargobind Ji said a Gursikh only takes part in the first 2 types of conversations. ***

There is a funny anecdote from the Dabistan involving Guru Hargobind and a wily sadhu. When in the darbar the sadhu sat in Baba Gurditta's chair, to which the sangat protested. The sadhu remarked that himself and baba gurditta are one and the same, no difference. Guru ji on hearing this asked the sadhu to meet with him. Guru ji explained that God is within all and is their true identity. To exemplify his point Guru ji pointed at a donkey and asked the sadhu what it was, to which he replied 'my lord, it is but you' to which they both laughed!
