GAṄGĀ, BHĀĪ, a Sahigal Khatrī of Āgrā, was a soldier in the Mughal army. He once called on Gurū Arjan. The Gurū, as says Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, told him that it ill became him to serve the oppressive Mughal regime. When Gaṅgā pleaded the need to make a living, Gurū Arjan said, "Remain with the young Hargobind, and you will receive not only worldly success, but spiritual enlightenment as well." Bhāī Gaṅgā served Gurū Hargobind and fought valiantly his battles against the Mughals.
