Bhai Murari Anand, was a Sikh of the time of Guru Arjan Dev ji, the fifth Guru of Sikhism. As says Bhai Mani Singh in Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, Murari Anand, along with Alam Chand Handa, Bhai Kaliana, Bhai Nanori, Bhai Latkan Bindrao and Bhai Saisaru Talvar, once came to the Guru and spoke with folded hands, "O support of the supportless, show us the way to liberation." The Guru said, "Practise the shab(a)d, or the sacred word, and serve others."

Alam Chand said, "Lord, our minds are humble as long as we are listening to the sacred hymns, but they go wayward the moment we leave the Sangat. Guru Arjan explained: "Constant practice is the remedy. Pride results from ignorance accumulated through several births. Presevere, therefore; and you will gain humility." Murari Anand and his companions bowed their head in reverence.
