KEDĀRĪ, BHĀĪ, or Bhāī Kidārī, a Lūmbā Khatrī of Baṭālā, received the rites of initiation at the hands of Gurū Aṅgad. According to Giānī Giān Siṅgh Twārīkh Gurū Khālsā, Bhāī Kedārī was one of the Sikhs chosen by Gurū Amar Dās to accompany Bhāī Jeṭhā (later Gurū Rām Dās) to the Mughal court at Lahore to answer a complaint lodged by some jealous Brāhmaṇs and Khatrīs against the teaching of Gurū Nānak. Bhāī Kedārī also held charge of a mañjī or preaching district. Bhāī Gurdās has praised him as vaḍḍā bhāgat, i.e, a devotee par excellence.
