BISHNŪ, BHĀĪ, an Aroṛā of Bībṛā gotra, was a Sikh of Gurū Arjan's time. He dedicated his life to the service of the Gurū, who appointed him to serve the saṅgat, especially those coming from afar. Bishnū would get up early in the morning and would in winter lay hot water for the pilgrims' bath. He rejoiced in washing the feet of the Sikhs with his own hands. Bhāī Bishnū, says the Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, attained liberation through service and dedication.
