ĀḌIT, a professional soldier of Soinī clan, came to take refuge at the feet of Gurū Arjan. He supplicated the Gurū thus : "We soldiers bear arms and live by fighting. How shall we be saved?" The Gurū, according to Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, said : "Remember God even when fighting. Fight only in a righteous cause. Protect the weak and the oppressed. Be true to the salt; be loyal to your Master. Thus will you obtain victory; thus will you glorify your countenance. " Āḍit bowed at the Gurū's feet and became a disciple.
