Seth Tiloka, a rich merchant of Fatehpur, was a pious Sikh of the time of Guru Arjan. He, accompanied by some other Sikhs, once visited the Guru at Amritsar. Guru Arjan was then engaged in compiling the hymns of the Gurus and bhagats into a single volume. Seth Tiloka and his companions suggested the names of some contemporary holy men, whose compositions might be considered for inclusion in the holy book under preparation. Seth Tiloka’s name is included among the Guru’s devotees in Mani Singh, Sikhan di Bhagat Mala.
