Gateway to Sikhism

 

Bhai Lalu

Bhai Lalu, also known as Bhai Lalo, was a welltodo Sabharval Khatri of the village of Dalla, now in Kapurthala district of the Punjab, who received spiritual instruction at the hands of Guru Angad. He was a close associate of Bhai Paro in whose company he once visited Goindval in the time of Guru Amar Das. Joy radiated from his face as hesaw the Guru. The Guru blessed him saying, in the words of Sarup Das Bhalla, Mahima Prakdsh, "Lalu, my beloved Sikh, hath become lal (lit. crimson) i.e. a ruby)" Lalu was appointed head of a manji, or preaching district. Tradition attributes supernatural powers to him, especially as a healer. A shrine at Dalla honours his memory.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
