BHAI, a Chaddha Khatri resident ofAgra, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Guru Hargobind (1595-1644).
He served the sangat diligently and made regular visits to Amritsar to see the Guru. Once as he entered the Guru`s presence, he asked how a guru helped the disciples in attaining liberation. Guru Hargobind, says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, told him how Guru Nanak had enjoined upon the Sikhs to attend the sangat wherein they, through reciting and listening to the holy sabad with faith, would attain spiritual enlightenment and ultimately become one with the Formless Being. “It is the sadh sangat, holy congregation,” explained Guru Hargobind, “which liberates; no other sadhana or austerities are needed.”
