BHĪKHAN (1480-1573), a medieval Indian saint two of whose hymns are included in the Gurū Granth Sāhib. There are in fact two saints of that time sharing the same name - Bhakta Bhīkhan and Bhīkhan the Sūfī. Bhakta Bhīkhan was a devotee in the tradition of Ravidās and Dhannā. His hymns in the Gurū Granth Sāhib reflect his dedication to the Name of Harī (God) which he describes as "cure for all ills of the world. "
