The rani dished out boiled chick peas to the child Guru and his accomplices.From that day onwards, she would serve boiled chickpeas togeether with milk and puri to the child Guru and his accomplices daily. When Mata Gujri asked the child Guru , How is it that you manage tp play in the lap of two mothers? Guru Ji replied, " just as one vision in two eyes, one moon in two rivers". Sometimes the child Guru would visitthe house of Jagat Meth Rea Seth.There was one leper ghuh Mal Khloda and Guru Jee would serve and bless him so that He became ailment free.

In the havrli where the child Guru stayed, there was a well where women would fetch water in earthen pitchers.Guru Ji would aim pellets at these pitchers and break them. The child Guru's mata would replace those broken with metal pitchers to reimburse the pitcher women for their damage. Guru Ji pierced the metal pitchers with his bow and arrow. The child Guru's mother fed up with this daily occurrence prayed that the well should dry up.Consequently, the well dried up. Jagat Seth became an ardent of the child Guru. Nawab Bakhsh also became a devotee of the Guru. Hindu, Muslim, King, Citizen, Nawab or Pir saw the divine light of the Almighty God in the child guru.
