KHĀNŪ, BHĀĪ, a Chhurā Khatrī of the village of Ḍallā, in present-day Kapūrthalā district of the Punjab, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Gurū Amar Dās. As the Gurū once visited Ḍallā, Bhāī Khānū led into his presence a group of villagers including Bhāī Tārū, Bhāī Vegā Pāsī, Bhāī Ugarū, Bhāī Nandū Sūdanā, Bhāī Pūro and Bhāī Jhaṇḍā. He and his companions received initiation at his hands. The Gurū, says Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, advised them to feed the needy. "To share one's victuals with others," said he, "is the true yajña in this age of Kali."
