MOHAṆ, BHĀĪ, a devoted Sikh of the time of Gurū Arjan, was a masand, local minister, in the Gañj locality of Lahore. He was especially known for his honesty, and, according to Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā, his favourite maxim was : "Even a penny out of the devotees' offerings appropriated for one's own use is like devouring a house-fly, which would not only make one throw up the food eaten, but also leave the body exhausted." He had the privilege of visiting Amritsar often and receiving instruction directly from the Gurū. See, also, Bhāī Gurdās, Vārāṅ, XI. 22.,
