JAVEHAR MALI., BHAI
JAVEHAR MALI., BHAI, was a masand at Varanasi during the time of Guru Tegh Bahadur. Some of the Guru\’s hukamndmds or edicts issued to sangats of Banaras (Varanasi) and still preserved in Gurdwara Bari Sarigat, Varanasi, addressed him variously as Javehar Mall, Javehar Das or simply as Javehari. While passing through Varanasi on the way to Patna, Guru Tegh Bahadur left one of his horses, named Sridhar, who had fallen sick, in the care of the sangat there. One of the hukamndmds directs Bhat Javehar Mall to send the horse upon recovery to Patna.
