We, at Shri Ramashram Satsang, believe that uniqueness of the Gurus does not lie in the fact that Divinity allowed human messengers to announce His word but Divinity lay in the specificity of the message they carried.
We believe that every soul (atmaan) is in a perennial journey to merge with the ultimate (parmatma). However, the human soul has to achieve the state of “purna purush”, that is a state of redemptive realization. A select few of the purna purush go on to become brahma purush, those who can guide others and lead them to the Parmatma.
A select coterie of brahma purush, with scores of devoted followers, who believed in the path of Sant Mat are proudly the part of the heritage of Ramashram.

Param Sant Mahatma Ram Chandra ji Maharaj was a complete yogi, a complete guru and a complete brahm veta. Prior to Mahatmaji, the knowledge of the powerful concept of chakra-bhedan had almost got extinct. This secret kernel of truth was guarded fiercely by those privileged few who had intimations of this knowledge. Most of them either did not want to propagate it or disclosed it to only a few handpicked ones. In the Naqshbandia Khandaan of the Sufis, this knowledge was being passed on from heart to heart. However, because of religious divides and societal disapproval, neither could the Hindu be a willing disciple of a Sufi, nor could a Sufi saint happily transfer this knowledge to the Hindus.
This reality veiled in secrecy was unfolded by Shri Ramchandra ji Maharaj who refused to be deterred by social and religious prejudices and attained the knowledge of chakra-bhedan from Param Pujya Sadguru Maulana Fazal Ahmad Khan Saheb. After perfecting the art of the chakra-bhedan vidya, he simplified the very strict rules and demanding lifestyle required for learning the adhyatma vidya (spiritual knowledge) to be accessed by the layman.

Param Sant Mahatma Raghubar Dayal Ji Maharaj was the beloved younger brother of Lalaji Maharaj initiated into the faith through his guidance. Chachaji Maharaj was also a disciple of Maulvi Fazal Ahmad Khan Saheb. Incidentally, on his death bed, Maulvi Fazal Ahmad Khan had told Chachaji Maharaj to place Lalaji in his stead after him, eliciting the same deference and regard in which he held Maulvi Saheb.
Paying heed to the words of his Guru, Chachaji Maharaj turned into a devotee of Pujya Lalaji Maharaj. Indeed so deep was the attachment that Lalaji Maharaj insisted that there is absolutely no difference between “Nanhe and me”. (Lalaji Maharaj used to call Chachaji Maharaj Nanhe lovingly). He used to reinstate “Me and Nanhe are two sides of the same coin. On one side you’ll find me while on the other you’ll find Nanhe.” After the demise of Lalaji Maharaj, Pujya Chachaji Maharaj carried his mission forward imparting spiritual knowledge to all that came into the fold of Sant Mat. He later settled in Kanpur and continued to work for the upliftment of the needy.
