The Philosophy of Radha Soami Satsang Beas
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.
