MADHO, BHAI. a Sodhi Khatri, was a learned Sikh of the time of Guru Arjan. The Guru assigned him to the valley of Kashmir to preach Guru Nanak\’s word. The Brahmans of Kashmir, as says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, objected to his use of Punjabi in his sermons instead of Sanskrit. Bhai Madho said, “What is important in an utterance is not its medium but its content. Second, our Guru teaches humility.” Bhai Madho travelled extensively in the valley and established dharamsalas where Sikhs assembled morning and evening to recite the Guru\’s hymns.
