In May, Gurinder Singh Dhillon, the 65-year-old head of the Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB), told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that all the sect’s centres would be available for care of Covid-19 patients. By the end of June, its sprawling premises at Chattarpur were transformed into the capital’s biggest Covid-19 facility with 2,000 beds, 10 per cent with oxygen-support. Its 250 ashrams across the country have turned into shelter homes for stranded migrants, with hygienic community kitchens. In March, even before India went into lockdown, Dhillon offered Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh use of the ‘Satsangh Ghars’ in the state, where three cases of Covid-19, all returnees from Europe, were reported by March 20th. The Lawrence School (Sanawar) educated Dhillon was working in Spain before he returned to Punjab to be nominated as the next spiritual head of the RSSB in 1990. The RSSB, which follows the philosophy of a personal path of spirituality, was established in India in 1891 and spread to other countries in the mid-20th century.
