INTRODUCTION

  Finding the Jivas in acute distress and delusion, and that they have deviated considerably from true Parmarth and are totally incapable of releasing themselves from the bondages of birth and death, the Supreme Being Radhasoami Dayal was moved with immense compassion. He incarnated Himself in this world in 1818 as Sant Sat Guru, in the form of Param Purush Puran Dhani Soamiji Maharaj and revealed an easy and simple path for the salvation of Jivas.
  RADHA is the name of the Dhun (reverberation) and SOAMI is the Shabd (sound). Know that Dhun and Shabd are one and the same, like water and its wave. Make no distinction between the two. RADHA is the lover and SOAMI, the beloved. RADHASOAMI sings of the union of Surat and Shabd. RADHA is the Name of the Adi (primal) Surat and SOAMI is the Adi Shabd. RADHA and SOAMI form an inseparable pair like Surat and Shabd. Know that both Radha and Soami are one word RADHASOAMI. As Surat dallies with Shabd, so does RADHA abide in close union with SOAMI.
   "Radhasoami" is the true and real name of the Supreme Creator. The goal of the Radhasoami Faith is the only true goal; of true and perfect salvation which can be attained only by practising Surat Shabd Yoga (union of spirit with sound current). As per Radhasoami Faith, the entire creation is divided into three divisions.
  • Spiritual: The First or the Highest Division is called Sat Desh or Dayal Desh (region) where pure spirit, uncontaminated by mind and matter, exists. It is comprised of six sub-divisions.
  • Spiritual-material: The Second Division is called the Brahm Desh or Brahmand where highest and pure form of mind and subtle matter exist with spirit; the latter predominates. It is also comprised of six sub-divisions.
  • Material-spiritual: The Third Division is called Jiva Desh or Ichchha Desh or Pind Desh or simply Pind where matter is coarse and impure, and spirit is feeble and to a certain extent under the control of the forces of mind and matter. It is also comprised of six sub-divisions.
  The above three grand divisions of the universe have a correspondence, or are on the same plane, with similar divisions in the human body, which is a miniature (microcosm) of the universe (macrocosm). The deliverance of spirit from the bondage of mind and matter, i.e., the body and senses, and its gradual ascension and eventual entrance into the First or Highest Division, by the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga, is perfect salvation. The seat of the spirit in the human body is at the top of material-spiritual division (Pind). The Supreme Father, Radhasoami Dayal, is a boundless ocean of spirit, love and bliss. The spirit entity is a drop from this ocean or a ray of the Supreme Sun and in essence is the same as the Supreme Father. Having descended from the Highest or First Region, the Surat (spirit) has, in its present state, become encased in material coverings and, in a manner, intermingled with matter and is, in the Third Region, subject to the forces resulting from such mixture. It has thereby lost its innate powers of discrimination and intelligence, and has become subject to carnal desires and passions. As long as it remains in the Second and Third Divisions where mind and matter exist, it cannot be freed from future births in the lower or higher regions. It is only in the First or the Highest Division where mind and matter do not exist that there is no re-birth. There is an everlasting conscious state of love and bliss. Radhasoami Faith is not based on the scriptures appertaining to any religion but on the precepts or sayings of the Sant Sat Gurus. The holy name "Radhasoami" is not identical with any other name. Radhasoami Faith consists of four essentials:
  • Sant Sat Guru: The personification of the Supreme Being. Sant Sat Guru or Sat Guru is He who has either descended directly from the Highest Division or reached that region by the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga under the immediate direction of the former and has become one with Him.
  • Sat Shabd: The sound proceeding from the original source, i.e., Sat Desh. It undergoes some change, or in other words, is enveloped in coverings at every step in its descent.
  • Satsang: As without Sant Sat Guru there can be no Satsang, the word "Satsang" always connotes, to a votary, association of Sant Sat Guru who is the central pivot on which the entire Faith hinges. Satsang can also be held in the company of loving devotees. This is outward or external Satsang. Internal Satsang is the company of spiritual current within. It consists in listening to the spiritual sounds internally.
  • Sat Anurag: Also known as true love or Prem. Radhasoami Faith consists only in cultivating an affection, or rather an intense love, for the Sant Sat Guru. The relation between the Sant Sat Guru and the Satsangi or devotee is purely of spirit or holy love, love to begin with, love to go on with and love to end with, the purity and intensity of love varying, of course, with the progress a devotee makes in his journey on the inward and upward path.
  Public preaching or propaganda is neither recognized nor allowed in the Radhasoami Faith. The two important doctrines of Sant Mat are (i) Firstly, that Sants generally do not interfere with the well-defined laws of eradication of Karams of Jivas, except in rare and specially deserving cases, (ii) Secondly, Sants do not make their advent here for the fulfilment of worldly desires of Jivas. The practice of Radhasoami Faith (Surat Shabd Abhyas) can be performed in the human frame alone. As such it is also necessary to maintain the human body.

SANT SAT GURU

  When Radhasoami Dayal incarnated on this earth in the form of Param Purush Puran Dhani Soamiji Maharaj, the first Sant Sat Guru, He brought with Him five Surats also known as ‘Nij Ansh’ viz. (i) Radhaji Maharaj, (ii) Huzur Maharaj, (iii) Maharaj Saheb, (iv) Buaji Saheba and (v) Babuji Maharaj. By 1861 all These Surats were present together on this planet. An introduction of all These Surats is given below. The details for each of Them can be found in Their respective biographies.

SOAMIJI MAHARAJ

  Param Purush Puran Dhani (The Most Supreme and the Most Perfect Being) Soamiji Maharaj is the first Sant Sat Guru and the August Founder of Radhasoami Faith. He was born at Panni Gali, in the city of Agra, on the night of the eighth day of the dark half of Bhadon (Janmashtami), at half past twelve, in the year 1875 of Vikram Calendar (corresponding to night between 24-25th August, 1818 A.D. He was the Perfect Incarnation of Radhasoami Dayal and had made advent in this world to awaken and redeem the Jivas. Read More..

RADHAJI MAHARAJ

Radhaji Maharaj was one of the Nij Anshas that Soamiji Maharaj brought along with Him. But She did not function as a Sant Sat Guru. However, Her role was quite significant. Radhaji Maharaj's name was Narain Dei. At the time of marriage Soamiji Maharaj said of Her that by virtue of Her high spiritual status and affinity to Him, She was destined to be with Him; so let the marriage be performed. Later on, He said that She was a Nij Ansh and came with Him from the August Abode; She was Nij Adi Radha Dhar. So She should be addressed as Radhaji. Read More..

HUZUR MAHARAJ

  Huzur Maharaj was the second Sant Sat Guru of the Radhasoami Faith. He succeeded Soamiji Maharaj. Huzur Maharaj was born at half past four in the morning on Friday, the 14 th March 1829, at Pipal Mandi, in a Kayasth family. Kayasth literally means, "situated in the body, the Supreme Being or Spirit". The duration of pregnancy in woman is usually nine months. Huzur Maharaj was however, born after eighteen months and the body too was developed as of a child of eighteen months. But nothing unusual was felt by the revered mother. Read More..

MAHARAJ SAHEB

  Maharaj Saheb was the third Sant Sat Guru of Radhasoami Faith. He was born in Piyari Kalan, Kabir Chaura, Varanasi, on Thursday, the 28th March 1861. Maharaj Saheb's name was Brahm Shankar. Huzur Maharaj had given Maharaj Saheb the Parmarthi name 'Premanand'. Read More..

BUAJI SAHEBA

  Buaji Saheba was the elder sister of Maharaj Saheb. She was senior to Maharaj Saheb by four years and functioned as the fourth Sant Sat Guru of Radhasoami Faith. Her actual name was Maheshwari Devi. Buaji Saheba's father's house and father-in-law's house were both located in the same locality of Varanasi, called "Bari Piyari". Read More..

BABUJI MAHARAJ

  Babuji Maharaj was the fifth and the last manifest Sant Sat Guru of Radhasoami Faith. Babuji Maharaj was the last of the Nij Anshas who came in the time of Soamiji Maharaj. His life on earth coincided practically with the growth of Radhasoami Satsang established in 1861, the year of his birth. His association with the Satsang was the longest of all. So, with His departure at the ripe age of 88, closed the biggest chapter in the history of Radhasoami Satsang. Read More..

LIVING SANT SAT GURU

  In the Radhasoami Faith, great is the importance of the Sant Sat Guru of the time.
  "When the Sat Guru of the time departs, He appoints someone as His successor in whom He re-incarnates and thus continues the work of regeneration of Jivas as before……….Therefore, an earnest devotee should make no distinction between the previous Sat Guru and His successor. But those who are bigoted devotees will not come under the allegiance to the succeeding Sat Guru. For this reason, their progress will also stop at the stage they had reached during the time of the former Sat Guru and there would be no further progress and improvement". (Sar Bachan Radhasoami, Prose, Part-2, Bachan-250)
  The Sant Sat Guru of the time while present on this plane, may choose not to ‘manifest’ immediately. When the Sant Sat Guru of the time is not manifested, there is a period of Interregnum, so to say. Interregnum does not mean that He is not present. He is indeed present but during Interregnum He does not grant His recognition, therefore people do not know His identity. When it is His Mauj, He grants recognition to Adhikari (fit) Jivas. Gradually others also become aware and associate themselves with Him. Indeed, it would not be right to say that there has been no Sant Sat Guru all these years in Radhasoami Satsang, Soamibagh, Agra. The Sant Sat Guru has been present all this time, and He is very much present. He Himself gives His own recognition at the proper time. Those who regularly and daily perform spiritual practices (Sumiran, Dhyan, and Bhajan) do come to know about it internally in the fullness of time. Reliable proof or indication can be had only in the course of performing internal practices. "Till one receives an unmistakable proof within oneself of the manifestation of the Sant Sat Guru, one had better continue to stick to the form of the last Sant Sat Guru. There is no time limit for such a manifestation. It all depends upon His Mauj or the Divine Will. But there should not be any doubt in one’s mind that the divine current is or will ever be withdrawn from this plane, till the redemption of the entire creation has been affected. Hence, having full faith and belief in the words of the Sant Sat Gurus, one should go on applying oneself to Parmarthi pursuits, viz., Sumiran, Dhyan, Bhajan, reading, studying and cogitating upon the holy literature and exchanging views regarding matters of the Faith among brother Satsangis and devotees." (Holy Epistles, Part-4, Letter-20) If we increase our fitness by following the instructions for making spiritual endeavours: "Satguru Himself would come to meet such a Parmárthi" (Sar Bachan Radhasoami, Poetry, Part-1,Bachan-13, Shabd-1, Couplet -13)
  In the absence of a manifest Sant Sat Guru, Huzur Maharaj has indicated the course of action for sincere devotees in Prem Patra, Part 2, Bachan 11. Some extracts from it are given below: "According to the teachings of Sants, the Jiva must attend Satsang once or twice every day till his delusions are somewhat removed. It is a great boon if he luckily gets to Satsang of Sant Sat Guru or Sadh. Otherwise, he should read and study, carefully and attentively, the scriptures of Sants, once or twice daily. Even this would be very beneficial and his ignorance and misunderstanding would be gradually removed, Whenever he can conveniently do so, he should make it a point to visit the head-quarters Satsang at Soami Bagh once or twice a year, or once in two or three years, and stay there for at least a week or two or for a longer duration. He should utilize this opportunity for removing his doubts and misunderstandings and also the impediments and obstacles which hamper his Abhyas (devotional practices). " "Even attendance at the Satsang is not possible without grace and mercy. Radhasoami Dayal, in His grace, fulfils the desire of sincere Parmarthis as and when He considers it proper. Now and then, He creates circumstances favourable for the ardent Parmarthis to attend Satsang and derive benefit therefrom. If no such opportunity is available by Mauj, they are brought in contact with some high class Satsangi from whom they hear spiritual discourses so that they may also begin to progress on the path of salvation. It, however, behoves all Parmarthis to engender an intense longing for visiting Satsang, and to do all they can to achieve this."

  Bhajan Ghar is located in the premises of Soami Bagh, Agra. Soamiji Maharaj visited Soami Bagh daily and returned in the evening. He used to perform Bhajan, take His meal, hold Satsang and distribute Prashad here. There was no room or house at this place at that time. There were thatched sheds only. Under one of such sheds, Soamiji Maharaj used to perform Bhajan, which is now known as Bhajan Ghar (House of Devotion).

  It is a place of special importance for performing spiritual practices. The devotee experiences greater bliss and his Surat ascends with some ease during Bhajan in Bhajan Ghar. It has been said by Babuji Maharaj that those who perform devotional practices in Bhajan Ghar, will get added grace and mercy of the Supreme father, Radhasoami Dayal. They will experience greater facility and ease in the proper performance of devotional exercises. It is so because Soamiji Maharaj performed Abhyas in Bhajan Ghar.

KOTHI (Residence) OF BABUJI MAHARAJ bottle

  Kothi of Babuji Maharaj is located in the premises of Soami Bagh, Agra. Babuji Maharaj lived in a rented house in Atarsooiya, Allahabad. A little further away, lived Maharaj Saheb. For about 40 years, Satsang was held in this lane. The number of Satsangis was increasing day by day. On the occasions of holidays and festivals, there used to be such a great rush that many people could neither get Darshan nor hear discourses properly. For office work, the space was not adequate. For lodging out station Satsangis, buildings were rented. Thus, hundreds of rupees were spent on rent every month. Ultimately, Babuji Maharaj decided to shift the Satsang headquarters from Allahabad to Soami Bagh, Agra. There were many requests and supplications from the Satsangis of Allahabad against this. Babuji Maharaj said that Huzur Maharaj had ordered Him to pass the last days of His life in Soami Bagh, Agra.

  The Kothi (house) of Babuji Maharaj had been constructed in Soami Bagh in 1922 itself. Babuji Maharaj arrived permanently in His Kothi at 7:30 PM on November 29, 1937. Babuji Maharaj's Kothi was His place of residence. It was here that Babuji Maharaj held Satsang and it was here that He left His mortal coil and departed to His Nij Dham. After the departure of Babuji Maharaj, four Satsangs are regularly held every day in Soami Bagh, of which two Satsangs, (one in the morning and one in the evening), are held at Babuji Maharaj's Kothi.

Radha Bagh bottle



  Radha Bagh is located in Agra city, 2.5 kms from Soami Bagh. In Soami Bagh, when the Samadh built of red sand stone constructed by Huzur Maharaj was demolished in 1904, its stones and other materials were used in the construction of the Samadh of Radhaji Maharaj in Radha Bagh, where some portion of Her ashes has also been enshrined. The rest of Her ashes are with those of Soamiji Maharaj in the Samadh of Soamiji Maharaj in Soami Bagh, Agra. In Soamiji Maharaj's time, there was only a raised earth mound in Radha Bagh. When in Radha Bagh, Soamiji Maharaj used to sit on it and at times, perform Bhajan too.

  After Soamiji Maharaj's departure to His Original Abode, a platform and a room were built on this mound. In this act of Sewa, along with other Satsangis, Maharaj Saheb and Babuji Maharaj also took part, that is, they also carried basketfuls of earth dug up for the construction. The palanquin used by Soamiji Maharaj is also kept here. Once, on a specific occasion, Bahuji Maharaj had observed that "Radha Bagh is not a picnic spot, rather it would be a place of worship". When Babuji Maharaj left His mortal coil, His last rites were conducted in Radha Bagh itself and subsequently His Samadh was also constructed in Radha Bagh. Since then, till today, evening Satsang on the 20 th of every month is held in the Samadh of Babuji Maharaj at Radha Bagh, instead of His Kothi in Soami Bagh.

GURUDWARA, PANNI GALI, AGRA

bottle   Panni Gali is a lane situated in Agra city, 6.5 kms from Soami Bagh. In this lane is a residence which is the place of birth and departure to eternal abode of Param Purush Puran Dhani Soamiji Maharaj and this is the place where He resided. Here, there is a small room within another room. This place has a special significance. Read More..

  It is at this place:
  • Where on Monday the 24th August 1818 Param Purush Puran Dhani Soamiji Maharaj was born.
  • Where for a number of years Soamiji Maharaj performed Abhyas.
  • Where on Sunday the 14th November 1858 took place the first historic meeting between Soamiji Maharaj and Huzur Maharaj.
  • Where Soamiji Maharaj initiated Huzur Maharaj.
  • Where on Friday the 15th February 1861, Soamiji Maharaj started General Satsang open to all.
  • Where in January 1874, Soamiji Maharaj initiated Babuji Maharaj.
  • Where on Saturday the 15th June 1878, Soamiji Maharaj left His mortal coil.
  It is said that during the period of Soamiji Maharaj, Panni Gali was in a very bad condition. At some places, there were pitfalls, at others there were slopes or inclines. The stinking water from the lavatories used to flow here, there and everywhere in the lane. There was always the danger of slipping and breaking one's limbs. The residential house of Soamiji Maharaj was also of kachcha bricks (made of unbaked bricks and mud) and small. In fact, Panni Gali, where Soamiji Maharaj assumed bodily form, established and held Satsang for years, was a place fit only for ardent lovers and true devotees like Huzur Maharaj who were totally oblivious of pitfalls and dirty drains in the lane. Babuji Maharaj was once pleased to declare that Panni Gali is really Prem Gali, that is, the lane of love.

  The old residential house of Soamiji Maharaj was demolished and reconstructed under the supervision of the late Sri Tota Ram, the Supervising Engineer of the Radhasoami Samadh Works. Babuji Maharaj had instructed Sri Tota Ram in the following words: "As Soamiji Maharaj was born and had resided and held His Satsang in this house for 60 years, every particle of it has been highly spiritualised. Every brick of this house is saturated with Shabd and Sound Current. Hence, not a single piece out of the broken fragments of this sacred house should be thrown away. Bricks, brick-bats, mortar and earth of this house should be used during the course of construction of this house along with new material ". The new house was completed in July 1916, much before the celebration of the first birth centenary of Soamiji Maharaj in 1918. Read Less..

PIPAL MANDI, AGRA bottle

  Pipal Mandi is an area situated in Agra city, 6.5 kms from Soami Bagh. This was the residence of Huzur Maharaj. The place where His house with a big gate now exists, had a high mound and open land. Huzur Maharaj purchased this land and built a splendid mansion on it with seven courtyards. This house is known as Huzuri Bhawan. Its construction was complete when Huzur Maharaj came over from Allahabad after retirement.

  Two houses adjacent to each other were purchased in front of Huzuri Bhawan in March 1893 for accommodating outstation Satsangis. They are known as "Prem Niwas". There are four or five courtyards and about forty big and small rooms. Another house just adjacent to Huzuri Bhawan in the north, formerly Mufid-i-am-School, was purchased in June 1896. This is Prem Bilas. When alterations, additions and repairs had been carried out, Huzur Maharaj left his residential house and shifted to Prem Bilas. He would go to His residential house occasionally, but sometime before His departure, he permanently resided in Prem Bilas. Prem Bilas means bliss of love. A lot of spiritual pleasure and enjoyment of Sant's company, discourses, Artis (ceremonial functions of prayer) Bhog and Bhandara feasts took place here.

SOAMI BAGH, VARANASI (BENARAS) bottle

  As in Soami Bagh, Agra, Soamiji Maharaj had pointed towards a mound, on which His Samadh is presently being built, and had observed that a Gurudwara would stand there, so also when the hall (Satsang-hall) was under construction in Soami Bagh, Varanasi, Maharaj Saheb had observed that He would hold Satsang there. The hall in Soami Bagh, Varanasi, where Satsang is held now-a-days, was under construction in Maharaj Saheb's time and the same was converted into His Samadh after His departure.

  On the north of the hall there is a platform like a stage, in the centre of which lies the Samadh of Maharaj Saheb, with sufficient space provided on either side for ladies to sit during Satsang (congregation). The balconies on the three sides of the hall facing the Samadh are also meant for ladies to sit during congregation. The iron gate of Soami Bagh was fabricated in Calcutta (now Kolkata). When the gate was being fixed up, the Maharaja (ruler) of Varanasi happened to pass that way in his horse driven carriage. Amazed to see such a big gate, he remarked that it was unbelievable that a gate bigger than that of his own palace existed in his State! When he was told that it was the Guru-Darbar (Guru's court), he bowed his head in reverence. It is said that even today when the ruler of Kashi and his heirs pass that way, they bow their heads down in reverence before Soami Bagh.

ABOUT SOAMI BAGH, AGRA bottle

  Soamiji Maharaj had His residence in the city. On account of charities and alms-giving, His house was all the time surrounded by beggars and mendicants whose number went on increasing. This caused much inconvenience and disturbance in Satang. Therefore, He decided to shift to some place outside the city. He stayed in several bungalows and houses in the outskirts but did not have the Mauj of a sojourn for more than 8-10 days in any one of them, as none of them was to His liking. Then He started moving out of the city at some distance away on Sukhpal (palanquin) which the Sadhus and Satsangis used to carry on their shoulders and visited various sites in the vicinity of the city of Agra. Finally, He approved a site, about three miles north of the city. There, He laid the foundation of a Bagh (garden) called Radhasoami Bagh or Soami Bagh. Read More..
