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. ]
