Guru Tegh Bahadur told them to stop using tobacco and said that their lives would improve afterwards. The villagers said that they were addicted to tobacco and could not stop using it.
Guru Tegh Bahadur explained that if they stopped using tobacco that same day, then their poverty would end at the same time. Guru Ji explained that at some point his Sikhs would arrive and this location would become a tirath.
