Bhai Jattu, a Bhiva Khatri, once waited upon Guru Arjan to seek instruction. He was accompanied by Bhai Nau, Bhai Bhullu and Bhai Mula. The Guru said neither action nor the world be shunned. What was important was shunning evil and temptation, serving others and practising the sacred Word. Bhai Jattu and others, says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, followed the Guru's precept and were blessed.
