Jagat Singh (1884-1951), called Sardar Bahadur Jagat Singh, was a college chemistry professor, a disciple of Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh, and finally the third Master of Radha Soami Satsang Beas. Remembered as quiet, inconspicuous, and unassuming, he was called "the perfect disciple."

Background[edit]

Jagat Singh Klair was born on 20 July 1884 at Nussi, a small village not very far from Beas in the Punjab, India. He received his education in the Mission School at Jalandhar and later took his M.Sc. degree in Chemistry. He joined the Punjab Agricultural College, Lyallpur, in 1911 as Assistant Professor of Chemistry and retired as Vice Principal of the institution in 1943 receiving the title Sardar Bahadur for his meritorious service.

Spiritual Path[edit]

On 28 December 1910 he was initiated into the Mystic Practice of Surat Shabd Yoga or Nam Bhakti by Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh. Throughout his service he made it a point to spend most of his weekends with his guru Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh at the Dera. After his retirement in 1943, he spent most of his time in meditation and Shabd Abhyas (Practice).

Demise[edit]

He died on the morning of 23 October 1951.
