KALIAN SUD, a resident of Lahore, was a, soldier by profession. He once waited on Guru Arjan, and, as records Bhai Man! Singh, Sikhan di, Bhagal Maid, began relating his feats on the field of battle. The Guru said, “It is easy to wield a weapon in the field of battle, but a true soldier is one who overcomes such foes as ignorance, lust, anger, avarice, and worldly attachment. Humility is his armour and God`s Name his only weapon.” Kalian learnt to be humble and fell at the Guru`s feet. He received initiation at the hands of the Guru.
