What is Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB)?
What did I understand when I first go there.
Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) is a nonprofit organization established in India in 1891. Today, RSSB has branches in more than 90 countries. Respecting all religions Baba Ji explains different bani (verse) of various masters like Jesus Christ, Adi Granth or Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
The word Radha Soami Satsang Beas -> Radha means soul, Soami means Lord & Beas is a small town in Punjab.
It all started with baba Jaimal Singh, when he settled in Beas. Presently the spiritual master of Radha Soami Satsang Beas is Baba Gurinder Singh Ji, who was officially appointed by Charan Singh Ji.
The whole thing revolves around the master, who could explain the Guru Granth Sahib’s reference to the Panch Shabd.
During meditation, if we concentrate on the third eye (centre) and practice the word/shabd/naam and listen to our inner sound, we can reach our inner real home to find god from which our soul was separated billions of years ago. And we call that place Sachkhand.
How things go without any funds & employees?
