Here, he called on a leper and asked him to permit them to spend a night in his cottage. the leper was amazed and filled with joy and said, 'Even the animals would not come nearby. Because of the Grace of God I have come across a human being.' Whereas, at the very sight of Guru Sahib the leper was cured of leprosy.
