NANDĀ, BHĀĪ, a Saṅgheṛā Jatt, received the rites of initiation at the hands of Gurū Arjan. He trained as a warrior in the time of Gurū Hargobind, and was killed in the battle of Lohgaṛh, Amritsar, in 1629. According to Bhāī Santokh Siṅgh, Srī Gur Pratāp Sūraj Granth, Bhāī Nandā's sword broke in the thick of action. Barehanded, he pounced upon the Mughal commander, Mirzā Beg, and pulled him down from his horse. He grappled with him in an unarmed combat, and fell under fire.
