PŪRO, BHĀĪ, was a devoted Sikh of the time of Gurū Rām Dās. Bhāī Pūro accompanied by Bhāī Māṇak and Bhāī Bishan Dās, once came to visit the Gurū. They sought instruction as to how they might save themselves and their families. Gurū Rām Dās, as says Bhāī Manī Siṅgh, spoke, "Learn to serve others and entertain Sikhs who come unto you, and induce your sons and daughters to do so, too. As you serve His men, so will He save your souls." Bhāī Pūro and his companions acted upon the Gurū's words and became known as devoted Sikhs.
