PRITHI MALLPRITHI MALL, a Sahgal Khatri, counted by Bhai Gurdas, Varan, XI. 13, among the leading Sikhs of the time of Guru Nanak. As he, accompanied by Rama Didi, first presented himself before Guru Nanak, he, as says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, begged to be taught the way to union with the Divine. The Guru said that the foremost tapa (tapas) was the practice of ndm, i.e. repetition of God`s Name. Prithi Mall and his companion, continues the Bhagat Mala, truly assimilated the Guru`s word, and attained liberation through sangat (holy fellowship), sevd (selfabnegating deeds of service) and simran (remembrance of God`s Name).
