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.
