Address Patanjali Yogpeeth, Maharshi Dayanand Gram,
Divya Yog Mandir (Trust) started its journey on January 5th 1995, with very few resources. As time passed many new chapters were added to this great mission. Need was felt to establish a new center far from all type of city noises and pollution, where patients & people having deep faith in Yoga, Naturopathy & Panchkarma may be able to take benefits of all these ancient Indian Sciences for long time. The vision to establish a fully equipped center in the lap of nature, amid mountains & rivers, where Sadhakas can have a divine experience of peaceful & healthy life, materialized by indefatigable efforts of Acharya Balkrishnaji. This center has got its shape in only 40 days despite many hindrances including a major hindrances of logistics, as it is about 20 K.M. far from the highway and there was no road available to reach there at that time. Yog Gram was inaugurated on June 8th 2008 by the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Sh. B.C. Khanduri.
Swami Ramdevji Maharaj
The multi-faceted personality of Yoga Scientist Swami Ramdevji Maharaj epitomizes all the qualities of the five Great Elements, the very basis of Naturopathy. His great personality is reflected in his patience like Mother Earth, in his coolness like Water, in his energetic speed like Wind (air), in his radiance like Fire, in his immensity like Space, from which emanates his vast vision of yoga, self-realization and nationalism. He is an exemplar of experiments. He prescribes seven norms (vegetarianism, non-addiction, healthiness, competence, dedication, non-political life, and a commitment to devote 1-2 hours daily in the interest of yoga and nation) so that the seven tenets of nationalism (patriotism, enterprising nature, foresight, humanitarianism, spiritualism, humility and transparency) are well-integrated into one’s life; - a marvellous ideology, indeed. One single goal, one single dream : healthy Bharat, clean Bharat, a Bharat free from hunger, fear, corruption, helplessness, beggary and poverty. His sacred motto and resolution is "om rāstrāya svāhā/ idam rāstrāya idanna mama," which inspires his following institutions in their day-to-day functioning : Divya Yog Mandir (Trust), Patanjali Yogpeeth (Trust) and Bharat Svabhiman (Trust), which have under them Patanjali Yogpeeth-Phase I, Patanjali Yogpeeth-Phase II, Patanjali Ayurveda College, Patanjali Chikitsalaya, Yoga, Naturopathy and Panchkarma Research Institute, Gaushala, Patanjali Herbal Park, Organic Agriculture Farm, Gangotri Sadhana Kendra, Patanjali Yog Samiti, Yog Sandesh, Patanjali University, Divya Prakashan, Divya Yog Sadhana, Divya Pharmacy, Patanjali Ayurveda Ltd., Patanjali Food and Herbal Park Ltd., and a Gurukul.
