An actual original photograph of Soamiji Maharaj (Sant Radhasoami Sahib, Seth Shiv Dayal Singh) as well as photos of His home at Panni Gali in Agra, an important location in the history of Sant Mat and the Radhasoami Faith, a place of meditation, initiations, and satsangs.

SoamiBaghSatsang

A small satsang gathering perhaps somewhat resembling what it was like during the earliest days when Soamiji first began holding satsang at his home at Panni Gali.

“In those days during the mid-fifties [mid 1850’s], Soamiji did not have a large following. He had not yet begun giving public discourses, and confined his meetings to small private audiences at his home in Panni Gali after having discontinued his talks at the Mai Than Gurdwara [local Sikh temple]. Seven or eight of his disciples were especially devoted to him and constantly sought his company and there was great affection and harmony. Every morning the Master gave an inspiring talk, displaying before his listeners’ eyes the spiritual treasures hidden in the Granth Sahib or the writings of Kabir and other great Saints. After the morning Satsang those present sat down for their meals. The food was cooked by Swami Ji’s wife, Srimati Naraini Devi, who came subsequently to be addressed as Radha Ji as a mark of public respect and adoration; while Swami Ji personally served the food to all with loving attention to each. In the afternoons and evenings there would often be informal conversations and discussions and at times regular discourses.” (Kirpal Singh writing in, A Great Saint, Baba Jaimal Singh, His Life and Teachings)

Soamiji’s Meditation Room-Within-A-Room: Photo # 1, the place where Soamiji was “born and departed”. It was the location where he spent much time in meditation from the age of six onwards. Baba Jaimal Singh, Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram Bahadur, and others were also initiated in this very special place, where Soamiji often conducted initiations into Inner Light and Sound Meditation (Surat Shabd Yoga).

“From childhood Soamiji Maharaj used to shut himself up in a small room which is at the back of another room on the ground floor of his house. For light and air there is a small aperture, otherwise no noise can reach within. This room still exists in a renovated form and is considered as one of the most sacred and hallowed of places.” (Biography of Babuji Maharaj)

A Glimpse of Soamiji’s Home Satsang Held at Panni Gali, Agra in the Mid 1850’s

“In those days during the mid-fifties [mid 1850’s], Soamiji did not have a large following. He had not yet begun giving public discourses, and confined his meetings to small private audiences at his home in Panni Gali after having discontinued his talks at the Mai Than Gurdwara. Seven or eight of his disciples were especially devoted to him and constantly sought his company and there was great affection and harmony. Every morning the Master gave an inspiring talk, displaying before his listeners’ eyes the spiritual treasures hidden in the Granth Sahib or the writings of Kabir and other great Saints. After the morning Satsang those present sat down for their meals. The food was cooked by Swami Ji’s wife, Srimati Naraini Devi, who came subsequently to be addressed as Radha Ji as a mark of public respect and adoration; while Swami Ji personally served the food to all with loving attention to each. In the afternoons and evenings there would often be informal conversations and discussions and at times regular discourses.” (Kirpal Singh writing in, A Great Saint, Baba Jaimal Singh, His Life and Teachings)

Baba Jaimal Singh’s Initiation Into Surat Shabd Yoga (Inner Light and Sound Meditation)

“Swami Ji then began to instruct him into the theory and practice of Surat Shabd Yoga, and when the instructions were over, asking the youth of seventeen to sit down for meditation, he left the room.

“As soon as Jaimal Singh sat down for meditation, he got lost in samadhi. The night came and passed away, the day broke, but he continued motionless, lost in the inner bliss he had discovered. Another day saw itself swallowed by the night, and the night saw itself replaced by another day, and yet the youth sat lost to the world around him.

“When some forty-eight hours had thus gone by, Swami Ji asked some of the disciples if they knew where the visitor from the Punjab had disappeared. ‘We saw him two days ago at the Satsang,’ they said, ‘but we have not seen him since.’

“Swami Ji smiled and proceeded straight to the little room where he had left his latest disciple and which none had entered for two days. He placed his hand on Jaimal Singh’s head, and when the latter’s soul returned to the normal physical consciousness and he opened his eyes, he saw his Guru beaming at him. ‘Do you, my boy, still doubt if your Master be a true Sikh or not?’ He asked with a twinkle in his eye.” (A Great Saint, Baba Jaimal Singh, His Life and Teachings)

Practice Meditation on the Sound Current Every Day: Do Bhajan and Simran Every Day

“There is nothing more important than meditation. Increase this practice from day to day; never decrease it.” (Baba Jaimal Singh)

“Whenever you are free from … duty, you should not waste your time even a little, nor fritter away the attention of your ‘chit’ [mind stuff, memory], for this time will not come to you again, even for a minute and we have to carve a place for ourselves in the Shabd Dhun while we are still in this body.” (Baba Jaimal Singh)

“Listen to the Sound Current every day when you are free, and do Simran even while walking. Then all your worldly work will by done by the Master Himself. Do not worry in any way. The Lord Himself has given you this Way to meet Him, so you should consider this your great good fortune and you should always hold onto the Sound Current. One day it will surely take you to Sach Khand.” (Baba Jaimal Singh)

“The real greatness is in Shabd Dhun and Naam. Therefore, fix your ‘surat’ and ‘nirat’ and ‘nij man,’ with devotion, in the Shabd Dhun. If you listen for ten minutes, or five minutes, or four minutes, or two minutes, or even one minute, with love and devotion, millions of sins and obstacles will be removed.” (Baba Jaimal Singh)

Today, a satsang edition of Spiritual Awakening Radio featuring readings from a great spiritual classic called, The Way Out…Is IN, by Swami Ram Bihari Lal, disciple of Sant Baba Garib Das of the Radhasoami Faith. Also presented is research about Sant Garib Das, who was a close disciple of Soami Ji Maharaj/Seth Shiv Dayal Singh (Sant Radhasoami Sahib), and eventual founder of the Radhaswami Spiritual Science, Radhasoami Satsang at Sarai Rohilla in Delhi.

“Although the disciples of Swami Ji Maharaj reached to thousands in number, yet three of them were most prominent. They were Rai Bahadur Saligram at Agra, Baba Garib Das of Delhi, and Maharaj Baba Jaimal Singh Ji in the Punjab.” (Jaimal Singh’s  Spiritual Letters)

“GARIB DAS JI OR GHARIB DAS JI  — A disciple of Swami Ji, who reached Sach Khand during his lifetime. He was from the Punjab and a brother disciple of Baba Ji [Baba Jaimal Singh]. Though a Saint of the Punjab, he preached Sant Mat in Delhi, where he had some followers. Huzur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji had a high regard for him.” (Jaimal Singh, Spiritual Letters)

Sant Garib Das of the Radhasoami Faith: Brief Life Summary According to the Book of Anmol Bachan:

Birth date 1846 AD;

Birth name: Narayan Das.

At the age of nine he left home accompanied by a Siddha Yogishwara for seven years, spent time in the cave at Markand Hill in Kashmir; practiced the inward journey and reached Trikuti, Dasam Dwaar (the Tenth Gate).

After that in 1874 he came to Swami Shiv Dayal Singh and reached Sat Lok and Anami Lok.

He stayed in Hathras and Delhi, did discourses [spread the teachings] for around thirty eight years and initiated around 5,000 people. Then he left the body in 1918.

As an independent witness representing another distinct branch of Radhasoami and a prominent disciple of Shiv Dayal Singh, Garib Das of the Radhasoami Satsang, Sarai Rohilla, and the Sant Garib Das branch of Radhasoami is a priceless resource for helping to clarify many issues about early Radhasoami history. Hopefully the writings of Sant Garib Das and his spiritual successors can be translated into English and published one day.

“The Word is Soami and Surat is Radha, and this dhar of surat that turns back and merges into the Shabd (Word) sings ‘Radhasoami’. When you sing the name ‘Radhasoami’, you do the sumiran of the ‘Five Names’.” (Sant Garib Das, book of Anmol Bachan)

“Soamiji in his Discourses has said that his surat descended into the dark regions of Maha-sunn but could neither locate the bottom or the end of it nor did it feel it worthwhile to go down any further. Thereafter, his surat adhering to the signs as revealed to him by his Gurus ascended upwards. Here Soamiji says that it was the inner Mercy of his Satguru Tulsi Saheb and that of Maharaj Girdhari Das Ji whose Satsang he attended for a very long period of time.” (Maharaj Garib Das commenting on some verses of Sar Bachan Poetry about Soamiji’s travels though the Great Void known as Maha-sunn)
