LĀLŪ, BHĀĪ, headman of Khaḍūr (Sāhib), a village in Amritsar district of the Punjab, became a devout Sikh of Gurū Aṅgad. According to Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, he along with Bhāī Durgā and Bhāī Jīvandā once begged the Gurū to show them the way to liberation. Gurū Aṅgad replied that paropkār, doing good to others, was the best way to secure release from the bondage of birth and death. He further elaborated that paropkār could be practised in different ways. One could help the poor and the needy with one's wealth or by sharing one's victuals with them; one could render physical service to others; or one could impart knowledge or give good counsel to fellowmen. The three Sikhs bowed to the Gurū and humbly dedicated themselves to deeds of service.

        Bhāī Lālū continued to pay homage to Gurū Amar Das.
