GUJJAR, BHĀĪ, a blacksmith by profession, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Gurū Aṅgad. Once he came to see the Gurū and said, "Lord, I am a workman, always busy with my trade. How shall I be liberated?" The Gurū advised him to recite the Japu (jī) early in the morning and work for the poor in the name of the Gurū. Bhāī Gujjar, says Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, not only engaged himself in the service of other Sikhs, but also reiterated to them the tenets of the faith.
