MAYYĀ, BHĀĪ, a Khullar Khatrī, is mentioned among the prominent Sikhs of the time of Gurū Rām Dās. According to Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, Bhāī Mayyā along with Bhāī Jāpā and Bhāī Nayyā, both of the Khullar clan, and Bhāī Tulsā, a Vohrā Khatrī, once waited upon Gurū Rām Dās and humbly spoke, "Tell us, True Lord, how to practise udāsī, how to be non-attached while still being in the world." Gurū Rām Dās said, "Occupy yourself with gurbāṇī, even as you occupy yourself with the affairs of the world. As you read the Gurūs' hymns or as you listen to the Gurūs' hymns being recited, keep your attention on their meaning. Keep reciting Vāhigurū even as you work with your hands. By the Divine Name is haumai or selfhood overcome. The Divine Name is the boat that will ferry you across this worldly ocean." Bhāī Mayyā and others, says Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, followed the Gurū's precept and attained liberation.
