Charan Singh (1916–1990), Satguru and head of Radha Soami Satsang Beas, was named successor in 1951 by Jagat Singh. He served the Beas sangat for almost four decades, until his death in 1990 at the age of 73. Before his appointment he practiced law in Hisar and Sirsa, India. He was an initiate of Sawan Singh, his paternal grandfather and predecessor of Jagat Singh. Charan Singh assigned the duties of successor and guru to Gurinder Singh, his initiate.

The Philosophy of Radha Soami Satsang Beas[edit]

The Radha Soami gurus of Beas teach a spiritual philosophy of right living, meditation and God Realization, based on the teachings of saints and mystics (Sant Mat) from all religions. Radha Soami Satsang Beas, headquartered at Dera Baba Jaimal Singh since 1891, is located near Beas, in the northern India state of Punjab.

Radha Soami Satsang Beas, with centres located worldwide, is a registered non-profit, charitable society, independent of any political or commercial affiliations.
