Bhai Ajitta, a Randhava Jatt, whose name occurs in Bhai Gurdas's roster of prominent Sikhs of Guru Nanak, Varan, XI. 14, was a resident of the village of Pakkhoke Randhave, close to the present town of Dera Baba Nanak in the Gurdaspur district of the Punjab. It was at Pakkhoke Randhave that Guru Nanak's wife and children stayed with his wife's parents after he had left home to go out to preach his word. Ajitta first met Guru Nanak as he arrived in his village at the conclusion of his long travels and sat near the well owned by him. Ajitta was instantly converted and sought instruction from the Guru. Bhai Mani Singh, in his work, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, records the discourse that took place between them.
