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
