Jaimalji Maharaj 25.9.2011
Baba Jaimal Singh (1839–1903), popularly called "Baba Ji Maharaj", was a Punjabi who became a disciple of Soami Shiv Dayal (the Sant Mat saint of Agra and founder of the Radha Soami spiritual movement). He served as a soldier (sepoy) in the British Indian Army attaining the rank of Havildar. After retirement he settled in a desolate and isolated spot outside the town of Beas (in undivided Punjab, now east Punjab) and became a spiritual teacher. The place came to be called Dera Baba Jaimal Singh, and is now the world centre of the Radha Soami Satsang Beas organization.
Baba Jaimal Singh was the first chief of Radha Soami Satsang Beas until his death in 1903. Baba Jaimal Singh granted his Will to Baba Sawan Singh and ordered him to succeed as the second RSSB Chief.
