He joined Khalsa army and served for several years under Kanwar Naunihal Singh (grandson of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji). While serving in the army he came across Baba Balak Singh Ji. The word and teaching of Baba Balak Singh Ji sank deep into his mind. One day Satguru Ram Singh Ji said goodbye to his job and started his spiritual life.

Satguru Maharaj preached the message far and wide which exercised a check on the western impact.

Satguru Ji was taken into custody and was deported first to Alahabad and then to Burma, where he remained as state prisoner Even in exile Satguru ji continued to have contact with his followers and exchange messages fore-casting the "British Raj was now on its last legs”.
