ADIT, a professional soldier of Soini clan, came to take refuge at the feet of Guru Arjan. He supplicated the Guru thus: "We soldiers bear arms and live by fighting. How shall we be saved?" The Guru, according to Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, said: "Remember God even when fighting. Fight only in a righteous cause. Protect the weak and the oppressed. Be true to the salt; be loyal to your Master. Thus will you obtain victory; thus will you glorify your countenance." Adit bowed at the Guru`s feet and became a disciple.
