Important Message for the Sangat

Sant Mat is a spiritual path, a way to reconnect with our spiritual source. Baba Ji, as the spiritual teacher, gives guidance to the disciples to help them reach their goal. Unfortunately many of us lose our perspective and give undue attention to the personal life of the spiritual teacher. This dishonours the spiritual relationship between the teacher and his disciples. Attending to our practice of meditation is the only meaningful recognition and appreciation we can show him.
Knowing all this, the sangat remains preoccupied with the personal life of the teacher including his private family matters, even wanting to congratulate him on his birthday. Such behaviour does not respect the teacher nor is it appreciated. The sangat is requested not to express their love and emotions publicly by sending messages of congratulations or birthday greetings through social media or by any other means.

Nagpur (Maharashtra), May 12 (ANI): The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), with the help of Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) Trust has set up one of the country’s biggest quarantine centre for Coronavirus patients at Radha Soami Satsang Beas complex in Fetri village. The 5000-bed COVID-19 Care Centre, which is located 15 km from the city, is going to be used for quarantine facility and screening. It was completed in a span of just 8 days. Manish Soni, PRO of NMC said that this is the biggest quarantine centre in Maharashtra and one of the biggest in India. The Radha Soami Satsang Beas Centres are spacious and well equipped with hygienic kitchens and clean washrooms. Radha Soami Satsang Beas has provided mattresses, potable water and food for the patients. The NMC will provide doctors, health workers, beddings and utensils. Nagpur city, so far, has 35 quarantine centres with a capacity to house 10,000 patients. Maharashtra is the worst affected state in the country by Coronavirus with over 23,000 positive cases. In Nagpur city, 259 positive cases are registered till Tuesday, May 12th.


UPDATE: 13 MAY 2020
Misinformation: Users of WhatsApp and other social media platforms continue to send false, inaccurate, and purposely misleading information concerning RSSB and its activities. The sangat has been informed many times to ignore all information received from such sources. Yet the sangat continues to pass these false messages to many friends and family with complete abandon. They even pass on messages they know are false.

Only the Overseas Satsang Centres (OSC) department is authorized to inform the sangat abroad of any and all official RSSB information. It does so by sending information directly to the Chairpersons and Representatives of all countries. In addition, this Latest Official RSSB Information Page on our official Website has been set up with the purpose of informing the global sangat of all important official information, as well as new satsangs, essays, and other material available on this Website and on our Official YouTube Channels.

Clarification of Fake Donation Message: Recently several WhatsApp messages with false and misleading information have gone viral. The latest is what appears to be a solicitation for donations in the name of the Chief Accounts Officer RSSB with instructions for sending sewa donations to RSSB and other affiliated societies. We wish to clarify that RSSB has an official global policy of never soliciting donations. Since this fake WhatsApp message is contrary to RSSB’s official policy, the sangat is advised not to pay any heed to it and refrain from sharing it with others.

Subject:
1. Latest Dera Information to be posted on our RSSB Website
2. Beware of Fake Information Posing as Official

During this period of global shutdowns and closures, including most of the satsang centres in India and abroad, it is a challenge getting the latest official information from the Dera to the members of the sangat. To help improve this situation we will now post important information on our official RSSB website, www.rssb.org. You will find a link at the top of the Homepage: Latest Official RSSB Information

Click the link and it will take you to the Information Page. Here the sangat can find the latest information sent by Dera for the sangat abroad. You may check the website periodically for any new information. In addition, we will continue to send all important information directly to all Chairpersons and Representatives, who will do their best to distribute it to the sangat as they normally do.

IMPORTANT: We wish to bring to everyone’s attention the fact that the internet and many social media sites, particularly WhatsApp, often spread wrong and misleading information concerning RSSB and its activities. Recently a fake letter was being heavily circulated among satsangis. The perpetrator of this forgery copied the Dera letterhead and even copied the Master’s signature and wrote a poorly worded letter in bad English. Yet satsangis were confused. Dera requests that if you do not receive information through your Chairperson, Representative, local Secretary, or see it posted on our official RSSB Website, then you can assume it is not official and not to be trusted.

The sangat is strongly requested not to pass information on to others that comes from unofficial sources. Do not become a link in the chain of disinformation.

Ref. No.: PA/WC/OSC/11/20
Subject: Should not use internet or other means for satsang

Since the closing of satsangs in many countries around the world, I have been receiving emails asking if it is okay to set up satsang via internet/social media/or phone conference calls. Dera has never been in favour of this. During this relatively short period that satsangs will be cancelled, there is plenty of spiritual inspiration that can be taken from all the Sant Mat books, from our website: www.rssb.org, and from our official RSSB YouTube channel. Our website has many interesting Articles, eBooks, Essays, and Satsangs; as well as Hazur’s Questions & Answers, over 600 shabads, audio & video recordings of satsangs, and several devotional movies. We are continuing to add more material all the time.

Many of you may have heard that Dera has stopped all satsangs on the pandal to protect the sangat from the spreading of the coronavirus. For the time being Dera will use its already existing internal cable TV network (used for showing Indian TV channels to Dera residents) to show satsang every morning, delivered by a local Punjabi speaker and pathi. This is only available within Dera for the Dera residents. This is unique to Dera and not something that can be copied nor should it be.
