Soamiji was born in Panni Gali, Agra on 25 August, 1818. From his childhood he started practising 'Surat Shabd Yoga,' the practice of merging the soul in the divine current of the Supreme Being's melody and power, in an interior room of his house and continued like this for fifteen years or so. On 15 June, 1878, he shed his mortal coil.

Soamiji was very closely associated with the great saint, Tulsi Sahib who was then staying at Hathras, near Agra. The two saints had deep and powerful love for each other. The mother of Soamiji, as well as other members of the family were keenly devoted to Tulsi Sahib.

In 1861. Soamiji started publicly explaining the method of saints (Sant Mat) to a few people who gathered at his place. This satsang (true association) continued for nearly seventeen years, during which period about four thousand persons-men and women-Hindus, Muslims, Jains and a few Christians were initiated by him into Sant Mat (the path of the Saints) i.e. Radha Soami path (the path of the Supreme Being). Most of these were house- holders, but some (about three hundred) were sadhus also.

The Like Guru Nanak Dev, Kabir, Tulsi Sahib and other saints, Soamiji was also a true and perfect saint. He says that our True Home (Sach Khand or Sat Lok), the realm of 'Sat Nam' or 'Sat Purush', is beyond all gods and goddesses, beyond Om or Brahm, beyond the three words mentioned in religious books.
