DURGA, BHAI,DURGA, BHAI, accompanied by Bhai Paira, once visited Guru Arjan and begged to be instructed in the duty of a householder. The Guru spoke: “Earn your living by the labour of your hands. Share with the needy from what you save. Feed the poor and clothe the naked. They receive God`s bounty who give away in His name.” Durga and Paira acted on the Guru`s instruction. They, as says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, distributed in charity all they had, and yet they were never in want. They received more than they gave.
