JODHĀ, BHĀĪ, masand at Tulaspur (location obscure) during the time of Gurū Arjan, was reputed for his probity. He collected the offerings from Sikhs and presented them to the Gurū at Amritsar without spending from these a penny on himself. To quote Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, he, like his fellow masands, Bhāī Jallo and Bhāī Mohan and Bhāī Ālam Chand of Gañj, Lahore, used to say that appropriation even of the smallest coin of the Sikhs' offerings was like swallowing a house-fly which would not only make one throw up the entire food eaten but also make the body sick and weak.
