TILOKĀ, SEṬH, a rich merchant of Fatehpur, was a pious Sikh of the time of Gurū Arjan. He, accompanied by some other Sikhs, once visited the Gurū at Amritsar. Gurū Arjan was then engaged in compiling the hymns of the Gurūs and bhagats into a single volume. Seṭh Tilokā and his companions suggested the names of some contemporary holy men, whose compositions might be considered for inclusion in the holy book under preparation. Seṭh Tilokā's name is included among the Gurū's devotees in Manī Siṅgh, Sikhāṅ dī Bhagat Mālā.
