Conversation between Guru Gobind Singh Ji and a devotee named Jait Ram. Jait Ram is the chief of Dera Dadu Dvaar near Jaipur whom Guru Sahib met on the way to Deccan/Dakhan Des. Jait Ram insists that Guru Sahib and His Sikhs set up camp at their Dera for a meal.

ਹਮ ਤੇ ਭੋਜ ਸੁ ਇਕ ਡੰਗ ਲੀਜੈ॥
“Please let us host you (and your army) for one meal;
ਸਾਧ ਸੰਗਤ ਕੋ ਧਰਮ ਰਖ ਲੀਜੈ॥
And let us stay true to our Dharam (of serving you).”

ਤੌ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹੱਸ ਐਸ ਉਚਾਰਾ॥
Guru Gobind Singh answered with a grin-
ਤੁਮ ਤੇ ਭੋਜਨ ਹਮ ਸਰੈ ਨ ਸਾਰਾ॥
“You won’t be able to serve us all.

ਹਮ ਸੰਗ ਹੈਂ ਬਹੁ ਮਾਸ ਅਹਾਰੀ॥
Many of my companions partake in meat;
ਉਨਕੀ ਖੁਧਯਾ ਮਿਟੈ ਕਿਮ ਸਾਰੀ॥
Their hunger will need to be satisfied as well.”

Pg. 209-210
