The crux of all religion 'Propkar Punyaya Papaya Para Pidanam' the words of Bhagavat is followed by all religions. It is the duty of we all to help the victims of natural disasters. In the present time, all individuals and institutions have been directly and indirectly helping to the people affected by Baishakh 12 earthquake. In this context, Radha Somai Satsang Beas which is impartial and not connected to any religion, remaining within the ideals of knowledge of souls, good behavior, noble thoughts, has practically helped to the victims of Baishakh 12 earthquake by providing food items, cloths as well as constricting and handed over sheds in earthquake affected districts.

Radha Soami Satsang Beas conducting Satsang for Knowledge of Soul and God Realization is also teaching regarding vegetarian living, not taking alcohol and honest living while staying at home.
