A major branch of the Radhasoami Satsang spiritual movement of India, stemming from the guru Sawan Singh (1858-1948), a disciple of Baba Jaimal Singh. Central to the teaching is the concept of an inner light and inner sound experienced in meditation. After Kirpal Singh's death in 1974, his son Darshan Singh succeeded him. The Satsang currently operates in the West as the Sawan Kirpal Ruhani Mission.
There is an international headquarters at: Kirpal Ashram, 2 Canal Road, Vijay Nagar, Delhi 11009. In the United States, the mission may be contacted at 8605 Village Way, No. C, Alexandria, VA 22309-1605.
