JAGATĀ, a Brāhmaṇ Sikh appointed masand to look after the Sikhs in Lahore, presented himself at Anandpur in 1698 in response to the general summons from Gurū Gobind Siṅgh for all saṅgat leaders in different parts to come and explain their conduct in view of complaints received against them. Jagatā humbly pleaded innocence and apologized for any inadvertent lapse. The Gurū trusted his word and asked him to continue serving thenceforth under the direction of Bhāī Pherū.
