JHĀÑJHŪ, BHĀĪ, was a talented musician of the time of Gurū Arjan. Once he, accompanied by Bhāī Kidārā and Bhāī Mukandā, who were also musicians by profession, waited on the Gurū and prayed for instruction. Bhāī Jhāñjhū and his companions took the Gurū's precept and were content to spend their days thereafter performing kīrtan in his presence. They had no other worldly desire left. They lived on what they were offered and never aspired for more. In this way, tells Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mala, they attained liberation.
