BAHORA, BHAI, a goldsmith, who once came to Goindval to see Guru Arjan and seek his blessing. He confessed to the Guru that he cheated his customers skimping their gold, and asked what other calling he should turn to. The Guru said, “Do not cheat, do not steal and then every calling is blessed. Earn your living by honest labour and share what you earn with others in God`s name. Go back to your home, absorb yourself in God`s praise and run a community kitchen for the needy.” Bahora became a devoted disciple, and is remembered in Sikh tradition with honour.
