Bhai Nau, a mendicant, once waited upon Guru Arjan to seek instruction. He was accompanied by Bhai Bhullu, Bhai Jattu and Bhai Mula. The Guru said neither action nor the world be shunned. What was important was shunning evil and temptation, serving others and practising the sacred Word. Bhai Nau and others, says Bhai Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala, followed the Guru's precept and were blessed.
