Ahankaar ka bhaav na rakhu na hi kisi par krodh karu
Dekh doosron ki badhti ko kabhi na eershya bhaav dharu
Rahe bhaavna aisi meri saral-satya vyavhaar karu
Bane jahan tak is jeevan mein auron ka upkaar karu

Translation: 
I shall not be too proud nor shall I be angry towards anyone
I shall not be envious of anybody’s success
My behaviour shall be true and nice
As long as I shall live, I shall be helpful to others.
