Yog Guru Swami Ramdev ji / Baba Ramdev ji
Reverred Swami Ramdevji Maharaj, a celibate since childhood, is well versed in Sanskrit Grammar, Ayurved and Vedic Philosophy. A strong proponent of Indian cultural values, his services in the field of cow-breeding, research in the field of Ayurved and his practical approach of Yog has won him several thousands of admirers throughout India and made him a living symbol of Indian culture.
His detachment to worldly happiness and devotion to scholar service has made him a phenomenon in the saintly world. Revered Swami Shankardevji Maharaj got him initiated in the ascetic order on the sacred banks of River Ganga.
He has taught Ashtadhyayee, Mahabhashya, Upanishads alongwith six systems of Indian Philosophy in a couple of Gurukuls (traditional Indian systems of education). Besides, during his travels in the Himalayan mountains, he performed severe austerities inthe caves of Gangotri for the realisation of SELF and acquired several uncommon capabilities.
With the blessings of Reverred Swami Shankardevji Maharaj, he, in association with his learned companions, Acharya Balkrishan Maharaj, a great scholar and famous Ayurvedic physician & others established Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) in 1995 of Kankhal, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India.
He, while in the state of sadhna, has been guiding several service projects of medical, spritual and educational pursuits through this trust then. Reverred Swamiji Maharaj, who has unfurled the flag of Yog on top, cures about two lakh patients per month with his spiritual energy in his Yog Camps.
Over twenty lakh people from all parts of country and abroad derive benefit from live and vibrating science of Yog by taking part in Yog camps every year, which helps in building a prosperous, disease free new India.
Nearly 250 million viewers of our country and abroad, have a close association with the age old Science of Yog and Pranayam through AASTHA INTERNATIONAL, SAHARA, INDIA TV & STAR NEWS TV channels.
Revered Swami Ramdevji Maharaj with his extraordinary talent, great patriotism and deep leanings towards our ancient culture and traditions is establishing Patanjali Yogpeeth, an institution for social and scientific research and treatment in Yog, Spiritualism and Ayurved through which more than twnty lakh patients of various ailments would derive benefit year.
He has a dream of disease free world. This, he plans to achieve with the help of the ancient science of Yog , which he feels will bring peace and happiness to mankind and will bring an end to the unethical business of weapons and allopathic medicines.
Revered Swamiji is leading the pious work of organising the Indian society divided on caste, creed, religion, region and sex, to establish India as a superpower.
He considers yeoman service as real dharam (religion). He envisages India as "Vishwa Guru" (Teacher of the world) which can become true only if every citizen realises his duties and responsibilities towards the nation. May the science of Yog expand virtues of consciousness, morality and brotherhood of human beings such that everyone sees his own consciousness in all creatures and spreads fraternity and global brotherhood.
It is divine wonder to see Revered Swami Ramdevji Maharaj in the hearts of millions of people not only of our country but also the world. He is fully committed to the reestablishment of scientific techniques, pious powers and moral values in our society. Millions of people are offering their services and wealth at the altar of Patanjali Yogpeeth (Trust) & University of Patanjali established by him to fulfill his resolution.
The real place of worship is the human body for Swami Ramdevji Maharaj, for he claims, my God lives in a man, as 'the temple in shape of a man' is built by Almighty himself". The service of fellow beings, in addition to Atamsadhna (self control) and Brahmasadhana (meditation) is his worship.
He considers moral acts of love and affection for human beings a true worship of the Creater. Revered Swami Ramdevji Maharaj, an aposite of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' (the world as one family) proves it true by accepting and practicing the world as his house and every citizen as his family member.
According to Swami Ramdevji Maharah, "Our objective is to establish a new world health order that redefines the lives of human beings across the globe for peaceful sustenance , by making the world free from the fatal effects of medicines and rid sufferings from diseases and pains".
Acharya Balkrishanji Maharaj
The modern science of medicine (allopathic system) has failed to cure a number of diseases of the present times. Inspite of scientific researches, treatment of many diseases has failed to bear any fruit and such diseases are, therefore, being considered as incurable. The methods of treatment developed so far, only take care of the manifested symptoms like pain etc. The don't eradicate the health problem from root level. After subsidence, such symtoms reappear. Some diseases have been declared as incurable viz. diabetes, rheumatism, osteo-arthritis, gout (rheumatism & arthritis), migraine, cervical spondylitis, respiratory disorders, asthma, cancer, nervous disorders, heart disorders & diseases of brain like epilepsy etc.
For such diseases, which are considered incurable in the modern medical systems, the ancient sages had prescribed successful treatment. In line with such prescriptions, indepth study of the classic texts, and with the grace of God, works related to upliftment, development and research in the field of Ayurveda, have been undertaken with full dedication by the Brahmakalpa Chikitsalaya (hospital) run by Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) situated on the banks of river Ganga in Kripalu Bagh Ashram, Kankhal, Haridwar. These have now shifted to the Department of Medical Science & Research in Yog & Ayurved at the newly established Patanjali Yogpeeth on the Delhi-Haridwar National Highway, near Bahadarabad, Haridwar. Among the major service projects run by the institution, Yog services project is under the able guidance of the ascetic Yogrishi Swami Ramdevji Maharaj , whereas the Ayurvedic treatment and research work is being carried on under the able supervision of Acharya Balkrishanji Maharaj. By his selfless services from day to night, the most venerable & adorable Acharya Balkrishanji Maharaj is providing immense relief to millions of patients suffering from innumerable physical & mental ailments and is also guiding them in practicing the art of enjoying a healthy, disease-free and blissful life. Infact he is a sparkling star on the horizon of the Ayurvedic Medical world.
A post graduate in Sankhya Yog & Ayurved from Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishvavidyalaya, Varanasi, he has also studied 'Panninie Vyakaran' alongwith Sanskrit. Indian Philosophy, the Vedas and the Upanishads, delved into the recesses of the Charak Samahita, Ashtang Hriday, Bhaishajya Ratnavali & several other Ayurvedic compositions under the Acharya Baldevji in Gurukul Kalwa, Haryana. He has practiced tremendous austerities in the caves of Himalayas in the nineties alongwith Swami Ramdevji and explored the near extinct varieties of Ashtavarga plants which are the main components of Chyavanprash, an Ayurvedic tonic. These Ashtavarga plant species had been in oblivion because of the lack of any proper written details in old records of various 'Nighantu' books. He has reproved the necessity of research to revive the Ashtavarga therapy for the benefit of mankind. The revival of many rear species of medicinal plant like Jatamansi, Katuki etc. found only at the high altitudes in his objective. By penance, practice and intense research on the pious herbs of the Himalayas, he has for the first time in the world, discovered many a permanent cure for complicated diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, osteo-arthritis etc. By relieving the pain of the grief-stricken man by means of medical treatment, he is proving himself true to the dictum of the ancient sages: "Kamaye dukhataptanam praninam artinasanam".
During the full year, about one to one and a half lac patients are being benefited by coming to Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) and many more people are being cured of various ailments by using the medicines manufactured in the Divya Pharmacy, a unit of Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) after receiving the same through postage etc. Acharya Balkrishan Maharaj ji is the Chairman of Divya Pharmacy & looks after all of its activities from research to production.
Acharyaji as always engaged in the Ayurvedic treatment of both curable and incurable disease, curing lacs of people, his compassionate heart, polite behaviour, abundant love and a sympathetic attitude has been a source of positive thinking and divine inspiration for inumerable people. This has also helped them their spiritual upliftment in life.
Acharyaji has associated with himself a strong team of about 150 able physicians so as to cope with the humanitarian work on a large scale, which is proving beneficial not only to the whole of India but also to people of many other countries, including learned celebrated people and the common man. Even senior physicians of the renowned medical institutions of India come here for treatment and for referring such cases of patients who suffer from incurable disease & whose effective treatment is not available anywhere else in the world.
The following Vedic reference in respect of a physician applies fully to him: Ayam me hasto Bhagvan, ayam me hasto Bhagavattarah".
Acharya Balkrishanji has also editied book's like Aushadh Darshan, Jeevaniya and Vayasthapan Paudhe, Vedic Nityakarma Vidhi, Yog Darshan, Sant Darshan, Bhakti Geetanjali. Beside he is incharge of all affairs of Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) & Patanjali Yogpeeth (Trust) as the General Secretary. His watchful eyes are always set on the grand work of establishment of Patanjali Yogpeeth & Divya Pharmacy on international standards for indepth & extensive research work in Yog & Ayurved.
According to Acharya Balkrishanji Maharaj, "We already have thousands of patients thronging Patanjali Yogpeeth everyday for medical attention and are getting relief from various ailments. Our endeavour is to treat them bases upon the doctorines of Ayurveda after a systematic and scientific investigation bases on modern medical parameters of diagnostics and evaluation, hence integrating the modern and ancient systems of medicine. We will use a new integrated approach to treatment based upon extensive research, mainly consisting of techniques of Yog & Ayurved, using Allopathy for emergency cases, Homoeopathy, Unani and Acupressure systems of medicines to relieve patients of unbearable pains. Such services will be aimed at all and accesible even to poorest."
Pranayam Revolution at Patanjali Yogpeeth
Oxygen (Pran) we breathe fills our lungs, spreads in the entire body (internal and external including neurons, veins and arteries) providing it with essential food, energy, oxygen and gentle massage. Not only that the veins collect the dross elements from the body, take them to the heart and then to the lungs, which throws the useless materials like carbon dioxide and other fatal toxins out of the body through the act of exhalation.
Through pranayam and Meditation we attain a transcendental state of consciousness where the mind has no thoughts or impressions. In that state, our neuro-endocrine system becomes limbic-hypothalmic, pituitary, adrenal axis becomes strong and precise. As a result our stress hormones: - ACTH, cortisol, prolactin, adrenalin and noradrenaline go down and good hormones like beta endorphines, enkaphalins etc. go up. As a result stress-related diseases like hypertension, obesity, heart diseases etc. start reversing.
So do the cases of diabetes, asthma, bronchitis, leucoderma, depression, parkinson's, insomnia, migraine, thyroid, arthritis, cervical spondylitis, hepatitis, chronic renal disfailure, cancer, cirrhosis of liver, gas, constipation & acidity etc.
Spiritually speaking, with the support of respiration the mind peers into the inner world and enables the Sadhak (Practitioner) to experience divinity. It is with the objevtive that saints and sages of ancient times formulated different methods of Pranayam. Swamiji has exhumed the Indian ancestral Science of Pranayam from the grave of darkness, fear and monopoly of a few and presented it in the simplest form for the welfare of the mankind. Swamiji has devised a sequential practice of the seven Pranayams with allotted time periods periods for each which has become very well known. Millions have benefitted from this simple package of breath control exercises. Across strata from business establishments to government organisations, schools, colleges, judiciary, legislature etc. people have taken to pranayam under Swamiji's tutelage. It has become common place to see pranayam being practised at parks and gardens all over the country in morning and in evening.
Yog Science Camps at Patanjali Yogpeeth
The Divya Yog Mandir (trust) & Patanjali Yogpeeth (Trust) holds Yog Science camps under the guidance of Swami Ramdevji Maharaj. Over 15 million people have benefitted so far from Yog Science camps conducted in India & abroad. Residential camps are organised at Haridwar in the monsoon months. Participants are given a complete health check-up before & after the camp. Boarding & lodging is completely organised by the trust and even a dietary regime is practised for participants during their stay. Non residential camps are organised with morning and evening sessions from winter through the summer season.
Patanjali Yog Committee, Haridwar/Hardwar
H.H. Swami Ramdevji Maharaj's dream is "Entirely healthy India & healthy world". Ours is a vast country. A large part of its population live in villages, where there is dearth of electricity. In addition, some places in urban areas like schools, colleges, religious places, administrative establishment & business houses etc. don't adopt Yog & Pranayam in their daily routine. H.H. Swami Ramdevji Maharaj intiated in the direction to spread the revolution of the Yog & Pranayam everywhere and he selected volunteers personally. Swami Ramdevji's then called trained Yog teachers to go their native places & teach this Science to people around them free of cost. About one lac Yog teachers are part of Patanjali Yog Committee now. They are teaching & training people in different parts of our country and abroad free of cost.

Panchkarma Therapy & Research Centre
Panchkarma is the primary healing modality within the ancient Ayurvedic Science. It offers balancing rejuvenation for mind, body and consciousness. We call this 'wellness', which is achieved through a series of unique, natural, holisitic, health giving, deep cleansing therapeutic treatments. These treatments rid the body of toxins and restore constitutional balance improving health, strengthening immunity, reversing negative effects of stresses which slow the ageing process and enhance self reliance, strength, energy, vitality and mental clarity.
Panchkarma means "five therapies". Only one or two of the five therapies are recommended and offered to each person on a Panchakarma program, determined by their unique constitution at birth (Prakrut) and current balance (Vikruti). The therapies work to remove toxins (Ama) from the body through one of the normal channels of elimination. However, Panchakarma is only effective after preparing the body for the removal of toxins (ama) by Purvakarma.
Our department of Panchakarma is going to establish new therapeutic methods adopting modern technology for the cure of incurable and chronic disorders where the modern allopathic system has failed.
Surgery through Ayurvedic ways
In ancient India, surgery was pioneered by Ayurved. 'Shalya Chikitsa' is a significant branch of Ayurvedic science. The practice of surgery has been recorded in India around 800B.C. This need not come as a surprise because surgery (Shastrakarma) is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine. The oldest treatise dealing with surgery is the Sushruta Samhita (Sushrut's compendium). Sushruta's forte was rhinoplasty (plastic surgery) and ophthalmology (ejection of cataracts). Sushrut has described surgery under eight heads: - Chedya (excision), Lekhya (scarification), Vedhya (puncturing),Esya (exploration), Ahiya (extraction), Vsraya (evacuation) and Sivya (Suturing). Topics of intestinal obstructions, bladder stones and the use of dead bodies for dissection and learning were taught and practised in ancient india.
In the Department of Shalya Tantra we'll provide facilities of Kshar Sutra Therapy for the management of Fistula and haemorrhoids, application of leech and blood letting for the treatment of incurable skin disorders etc. Karna Vedhan (piercing of the pinna of the ear), Agni Karma (Thermal cauterization).

We have modern essential setup of opthalmic instrumentation for diagnosis and prognosis and evaluation of each case for ocular conditions specially Ayurvedic therapies for different eye disorders like age related degeneration, allergic conjuctivitis, rise in power of glasses, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathies etc. In this modern equipped Opthalmology Centre we are going to establish scientifically the knowledge of ancient India.
Dental Clinic and Research Centre
The department of dental sciences and research, vested with latest modern dental equipments, is now going to be the first of its type in the world, by adopting yogic and ayurvedic methodology, thus creating a new era in the history of dentistry.
In the ancient world, the practice of surgery and dental surgery has been recorded in Indian literature. Acharya Sushrut was the first to study human anatomy with the aid of post-mortem. He also performed general surgery, plastic surgery, opthalmic surgery and dental surgery. He described different types of dental and gum problems. Many surgical concepts and treatment of ancient ayurvedic science here also has been adopted. In the modern medical and surgical procedure.
With the advancement of modern dental scientific researches, the treatment system in dental surgery progressed so much, that in the present era, the tooth can be implanted in the oral cavity. The surgical implant denture (the fixed denture) can be given which is as good as the natural teeth. Mobile teeth caused by pyorrhea can be made firm by bone graft surgery and other procedures. Painful useless teeth can be saved by endodontic therapy but this would be our last resort to save the teeth by modern techniques for which we have purchased the latest modern equipments.
Our first effort would be to save the teeth by ancient traditional system of Yoga, Pranayam, Ayurved, Natural therapy and Physiotherapy. We are working on the ancient practices of Ayurveda, Pranayam and other allied specialities in the Department of dental sciences and research of Patanjali Yogpeeth Haridwar.
