Guru Nanak worked for Nawab Daulat Khan Lodhi in charge of his accounts. The Guru was temorarily jailed here on the orders of the Nawab while all the accounts where checked. It had been reported to the Nawab by jealous elements that the Guru was stealing from the inventory as his predecessor had. When the inventory was checked and found to be intact, the Nawab released Guru Nanak & appologized profusely, even offering Guru Nanak a promotion to Prime Minister of the state. Guru Nanak refused to accept the position as he had decided to dedicate his life to the spread of Sikhism.

Baba Lakhmi Chand was too involved in worldly affairs while Baba Sri Chand chose the path of renunciation and became an asthetic. 

Gurudwara Sri Antaryamta Sahib

GURUDWARA SHRI ANTARYAMTA SAHIB is situated in the Sultanpur Lodhi City of Kapurthala Distt. The Muslims asked SATGURU SHRI GURU NANAK DEV JI that whether He was Hindus GURU or Muslims ? SHRI GURU NANAK DEV JI MAHARAJ replied that He is common to them. Then the Muslims said that in case you are common then come with us to offer Namaaz. SATGURU JI went along. Everyone stood in the Mosque in order to offer Namaaz & started offering prayers but SHRI GURU NANAK DEV JI kept standing straight. After offering Namaaz, they asked with anger as to why didn't He offer prayers to which GURU JI said that even you didn't offer prayers. Nawab said that they did offer prayers. GURU JI said that your heart was away to get horses from Kandhar. You were physically present here & so was I, but not mentally. On hearing this Khan said that you should have offered prayers along with the priest. SATGURU JI replied that even he was physically present here but his mind was taking care of the new born female calf at home which might not fall into the well. Then everybody bowed to GURU JI's feet in adoration & said that he is a saint with divine powers.
