About Baru Sahib

Baru Sahib also known as the “Valley of Divine Peace” ,the land of meditation (tapobhoomi) is located in Himachal Pradesh, India. Baru Sahib, is the realization of vision of Sant Attar Singh , Mastuane Wale (1866–1927), who, in the early twentieth century envisaged a place in the Himalayas from where young souls equipped with the amalgam of spiritual and modern scientific education will spread the message of universal brotherhood throughout the world.

Baru Sahib was revealed to the mankind by his devout disciple Sant Teja Singh (1877–1965) {MA, LLB (Punjab, India), MA (Harvard, United States)} with the help of Bhai Iqbal Singh and Bhai Khem Singh in 1956.

In order to fulfil the vision of his mentor Sant Attar Singh ji, Sant Teja Singh directed Bhai Iqbal Singh and Bhai Khem Singh to search, locate and reveal to mankind the hitherto hidden sacred site. He told them that the sacred site was located in the lower Himalayas somewhere near the town of Nahan in Himachal Pradesh.

About 50–60 km from Solan, there was a village Baru spread over 400 Acres owned by one Thakur Joginder Singh. It was densely forested & had several springs. Under a huge walnut tree near a spring, sadhus would come & meditate from time to time.On reaching Baru, he saw that the village had all the features as prophesied by Sant Teja Singh.

Baba Iqbal Singh sent a communication to Sant Teja Singh saying Baru looked exactly the place he had envisioned for setting up a spiritual centre. Without visiting the place or negotiating the price, Sant Teja Singh bought the entire 400 acres of Baru in 1956.

Baru Sahib, houses a number of educational institutions ranging from pre-nursery to doctorate level.
