The publishers, Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB), are a religious group based in the northern Indian state of Punjab. Established in 1891 by Indian spiritual leader Jaimal Singh, the RSSB's teachings are guided by the fundamental spiritual beliefs found at the heart of most religions.

Sant Mat, the Teachings of the Saints, is a scientific mystic philosophy. It is the oldest teaching in the world and yet still the newest. Some years ago a great modern Saint, Baba Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj of Beas, India, wrote that 'many people like to read and talk about philosophy, but few care to put it into practice.' These are simple words, but a great challenge. The author and his wife recently spent eight months at Beas studying Sant Mat under a living Master, every minute of which was alchemic, in that it altered and corrected the values and perspective of life in a way almost unbelievable except by actual experience. This book, the result of that visit, is an attempt to convey some of the rationale and principles of Sant Mat. In the mind of the author, this practical philosophy could greatly influence the individual the world over, in the struggle for spiritual freedom accompanied by social responsibility. As such, it provides an introduction to a spiritual experience of the greatest importance.(Publisher). Good / good. Item #11158
