Radhaswami Movement

Radhaswami Movement was founded in 1861 by Tulsi Ram, of Agra, a banker by profession. Tulsi Ram was also popularly known as Shiv Dayal Saheb or Swamiji Maharaj. The Radhaswamis believe in one Supreme Being, the supremacy of the Guru, a “company of the pious people” (Satsang), and simple social life. They believe that there is no need to renounce the worldly life for spiritual attainments. They further hold that all religions are true. The sect recognises no temples, shrines or sacred places. Works of faith and charity, the spirit of service and prayer are laid down as necessary duties.
