Aṅgad, Gurū. (1504–52). Second Sikh Gurū. Lehṇā (Lahaṇā) as he was originally called, a Trehaṇ Khatrī, lived at Khaḍūr, Pañjāb. His devotion to Durgā turned to loyal service of Gurū Nānak at Kartārpur. Impressed by his selfless obedience, Nānak renamed him Aṅgad (Pañjābī aṅg, ‘part of one's body'), and proclaimed him his successor rather than the disappointed Srī Chand.
