Let me give you short bio of them. Below is the post of someone who has family believing in Radasoamis.

_______________________________________________________

Sat Sri Akal,

My grandfather was a radhasoami and my father is a radhasoami but I

don't believe in them.

Personally I don't like the concept of taking something from the mainstream

religion and leaving something and then forming a different sect.

My grandfather was against people going to the Gurudwaras and

considering the Holy Guru Granth Sahibji as the guru.

My father is a known radhasoami and he tried his best to persuade me to

believe in what radhasaomis say and not in Sikhi but without success.

I respect my father but I don't agree with his thinking.

The radhasomis believe that their gurus are at a more 'higher level' from

the Sikh gurus or any other saints/gurus/prophets for that matter.

But when I question them that if that is the case then why do they take

bani from the Holy GGS which was written by the 'lower level' Sikh gurus

and other saints

then they recite Gurbani to say that one should not critisize saints and

holy people.

The original radhasoamis are from Agra and the radhasoamis at Beas are a

breakaway faction.The radhasoamis at beas were once a part of

the radhasoamis of agra but then after some time instead of considering the

radhasoami gurus at agra as their gurus they started their own gurudom.

I know many radhasoamis and I have noticed one thing that

most radhasoamis who go to the beas satsang never go to the satsangs organised

by the radhasoamis of Agra and vice versa and both of them are quite

different from each other, have their own gurus and at present have no

interaction with each other. The radhasoami gurus of beas dress like sikhs while

the 'original' radhasoami gurus of agra don't.

The radhasoamis of beas depend heavily on the

Holy Guru Granth Sahibji choosing what they want and discarding what they don't

want and refusing to accept the Holy Guru Granth Sahibji as the guru while the

radhasoamis of agra don't borrow from the Holy Guru Granth Sahibji, they have

their own bani and preach the same.

The radhasoamis of beas recognise the first radhasoami guru of agra, who

founded the radhasoami faith,

and some more gurus of agra before they started their own gurudom at beas

They don't recognise the present gurus at Agra and

consider their gurus as successors of the original radhasoami guru.

The original radhasoami faith of agra does not twist the bani in the Holy

Guru Granth Sahibji to suit their needs only the radhasoamis of beas do that.

With Regards

Balvinder Singh

Iv got a few radhaswami friends - who i have often discussed their religon with (baring in mind i dont actually know how 'religous they are) so im gna answer thw questions from what of know of them and their families,

they dont believe in SGGSji, and dont take amrit as sikhs do, from what i know they dont have the 5 K's

Their religon has nothing to do with sikhi and when asked in discussions they would rather refer to them selves as hindus

confused the hell outta me

Bear in mind that these are the opinions of the Radhaswamis that you know. Those that I know seem, well, confused to me. They have been brought up in a Sikh culture, but are attempting to follow a different path. The end result is that they are Radhaswami in name only, but still follow many aspects of Sikh faith! (eg go to Gurdwara all the time, get married there, bow to SGGS, get kids named there, etc). But these are only the experiences of the RS's that I know.

So whats the difference between them and many Punjabi Hindus who also do all that?
