Maharaj Charan singh (1916–1990), was the fourth chief of Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB). He became chief in 1951 following the death of Sardar Bahadur Jagat Singh, and served until his death at the age of 73. Before his appointment as successor he practiced law in Hisar and Sirsa.

The Philosophy of Radha Soami Satsang Beas[edit]

This philosophy, based on the teachings of mystics from all religions, has had its headquarters at Dera Baba Jaimal singh near the river Beas in northern India since 1891. Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB), with centres located worldwide, is a registered non-profit, charitable society, independent of any political or commercial affiliations.

Radha Soami means ‘lord of the soul’, and 'satsang' describes a group that seeks truth. There are a number of other contemporary movements that utilize the phrase ‘Radha Soami’. The Radha Soami Satsang Beas is not affiliated with these other movements.

Radha Swami is a religious movement that concentrates on making people realise their presence on Earth as a gift to meditate the name of God and get close to him after their death.
