BHIKHAN (1480-1573), a medieval Indian saint two of whose hymns are included in the Guru Granth Sahib. There are in fact two saints of that time sharing the same name Bhakta Bhikhan and Bhikhan the Sufi. Bhakta Bhikhan was a devotee in the tradition of Ravidas and Dhanna. His hymns in the Guru Granth Sahib reflect his dedication to the Name of Hari (God) which he describes as “cure for all ills of the world.”
