Radha Soami Dera Baba Bagga Singh, Tarn Taran is a spiritual organization which rests on the Spiritual Teachings of Surat (Consciousness). It is devoted to help people seeking spiritual growth under the supervision of living spiritual master (Satguru).
Radha Soami is not the name of a man or woman. All the Saints have called the Lord by the name of “Soami” and Swami Ji Maharaj has given the name Radha to Surat (Consciousness). Thus “Radha Soami” is denotation of The GOD.
We should not entangle ourselves in the web of words: we are to realize God. What is the need of renouncing our homes to live in jungles or mountains? God is within us and we can only realize Him within.
The philosophy teaches us the path of spiritual development which includes :
Complete vegetarian diet and abstinence from intoxicants: A vegetarian diet is a must. No meat, eggs, fish, alcohol, or mind-expanding drugs are permitted to a disciple. We are accountable for our every act, in the court of God. Accountability for a diet other than the recommended is extremely high. To minimize the negative repercussions and payback we should take the lowest form of life, which are plants.
Moral way of life: All disciples should not be a burden to the society and must live on their own earnings. Disciples must lead a monogamous or a celibate life style.
The practice of daily meditation: At the time of initiation the disciples are taught the method of meditation (Surat Shabad Yoga). Disciple must practice it daily to achieve spiritual growth & finally God realization.
One is also encouraged to build-up the habit of listening routine Satsangs (discourses) every weekend, held at all Centers. There are no rituals or mandatory contributions. Members need not give up their cultural identity or religious preference to follow this path.
