PHIRNA, BHAI, a KhahiraJatt, named, along with Bhai Jodh, among Guru Nanak`s Sikhs in Bhai Gurdas, Varan, XI. Both Bhai Phirna and Bhai Jodh had received instruction at the hands of Guru Nanak. Together they had presented themselves before the Guru and prayed that they be endowed with faith. The Guru said, “Ye should learn humility to achieve truth. Serve with thy hands brother Sikhs as best ye can. Be an early riser, wash and sit in remembrance of God.
Know God as thy master and thyselves as His manservants. Join holy assembly and with love listen to the Guru`s word. Ye should practise in thy lives the word ye hear.” Thus, says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, Phirna Khahira and Jodh attained what they had desired.
