    Bittu ji as you spelled it, it does not appear to be mentioned anywhere. However you can try variations of this at the following and see,


    It does not hurt to give a little context as to what the need is unless it means exposing personal information that may not be wise to divulge in a public forum like SPN if you are not comfortable.

    Out of time but found this other information:

    This needs to be verified, as Ambarsaria ji has said, it is not easily found in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which is strange.

    I also spent a lot of time trying to locate the reference in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji....unsuccessfully. There is not doubt that Chokamela, the historical person, was an influence in the Bhakti movement of Northern India. However so were many other "sants" who do not achieve mention in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    To add: Chokamela was a disciple of Bhagat Naamdev. I decided to narrow my search to the bani of Naamdev, and could not find mention of Chokamela there.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
