At night, however, the Guru tarried long before going to bed which made Sayan impatient. At last he came near the door to see inside.He discovered Mardana was playing on his rabab and Guru Nanak was singing a hymn in enraptured devotion. Sa|jan was overwhelmed and falling at the Guru`s feet confessed remorsefully how sinful he was. The Guru said that he could yet hope for God`s grace and forgiveness if he confessed and repented and delivered all of his possessions which he had collected by impious means.
"Then," says Puratan Janam Sakhi, "Sajjan obeyed. He brought out all the things and gave them away in God`s name." He converted his house into a dharamsala which, according to the Janam Sakhi, was the first such centre established in the history of early Sikhism. Sajjan`s tomb still exists near Makhdumpur, in Pakistan. A ruined mound near it is also known by his name.
