SABHĀGĀ, BHĀĪ, Bhāī Seṭhā and Bhāī Ugvandā, Aroṛās of the Chūṇīāṅ, now in Pakistan, spent long hours in meditation and served Sikhs with food and clothing. Once, as records Bhāī Santokh Siṅgh Srī Gur Pratāp Sūraj Granth, they presented themselves before Gurū Arjan and asked whether food distributed here in dedication to the bygone ancestors reached the dead. The Gurū quoted Gurū Nānak's lines: "Nānak, one will receive in the hereafter as one lays out for others from what is earned by one's own hard labour here." Their doubts cleared, Sabhāgā and his companions returned home enlightened, and continued to serve the saṅgat with faith and devotion.
