Publisher Description

This is the first in a series of very short books focusing on mystics of the world. Charan Singh was one of the most well-known masters of shabd yoga in the 20th century. 

Charan Singh, respectfully addressed as Maharaj Ji or Master was born on December 12, 1916, in Moga, India, and died at the age of 73 on June 1, 1990, in Dera Baba Jaimal Singh, Punjab, India. He was initiated into the Path of the Saints (Sant Mat) at the age of 17 by his grandfather and guru, Sawan Singh. In October of 1951, Charan Singh was appointed the Spiritual Head of Radhasoami Satsang at Beas by Jagat Singh, his Master’s successor. 

For nearly 40 years, Charan Singh served the needs of millions of spiritual seekers. During his tenure, he expanded the free kitchen (langar) at the Dera colony to feed thousands of pilgrims daily. On certain occasions (particularly during the birth and death anniversaries of previous saints) close to one million people would be fed meals free of charge. He also established one of the largest charity hospitals in India, which provides free medical care to anyone, irrespective of caste, creed, or color. Charan Singh had one of the largest followings of any spiritual master in the history of India. Before his death he had initiated over 1,200,000 seekers into Sant Mat, encouraging his followers to lead a pure moral life, abstain from drugs and alcohol, subsist on a strict vegetarian diet, and to devote two and a half hours daily to shabd yoga meditation. Perhaps best known for his humility and self-effacing manner, Charan Singh’s life and teachings emphasized devotion to meditation, service to humanity, and compassion for all living beings. 

This audiobook contains excerpts which come from a series of unpublished letters by Charan Singh, focus on overcoming the desires and attachments of the lower mind and attuning one’s attention to the inner sound current during daily meditation. As such, this little book reflects only a small aspect of Charan Singh’s overall teachings. A meditative text. Short, concise, and encouraging.
