Swami Ramdevji Maharaj was born as Ramkrishan Yadav in 1965 at Alipur in the Mahendragarh district of Indian state of Haryana. In Childhood Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati’s Veda always inspired him. He read a lot of Vedic books as well. He suffered as a child from Paralysis and it was through Yoga that he was able to regain the full functionality of his body again. After studying in Shahjadpur he left home at the age of 15. He went to an Aarsh Gurukul in Khanpur to study Sanskrit and Yoga in detail. After completing his period of study at the Gurukul, his quest for spirituality got its depth and he had all the Spiritual Vedic thoughts & Philosophy. His Guru realized his quest and his wisdom. Later Swami Ramdevji renounced the world and entered into Sanyas. It is said Swami Ramdev was initiated into the ascetic order by Swami Shankerdevji Maharaj.
Param Pujjya Swami Ramdevji Maharaj also known as ‘Baba Ramdev’ is a renowned Yoga & Ayurved Guru. Swami Ramdevji is well versed in Sanskrit Grammar as well as Vedic Philosophy & Vedic traditions. He greatly values Indian culture & also is deeply patriotic. He believes that India with its ancient wisdom is a teacher to the whole world. Swami Ramdevji believes in bringing awareness of the science of Yoga; its benefits & the power in Ayurved that can expand one to realize the virtues of consciousness with a healthy body and healthy mind. Swami Ramdevji believes the real place of service is the human body as he says, “my God lives in a man, as ‘the temple in shape of man’ is built by All Mighty Himself”. Service to mankind, self control and meditation is his worship.
In this world of strife and anxiety, the opportunity to associate with a traveling Indian sanyasi (Monk) is a great blessing. And if that sanyasi happens to be a well read scholar, it becomes a double blessing, for we can then hear from him the esoteric knowledge of the Vedas presented in a modern context.
Swami Mukundanand finished his B.Tech. from the world-renowned Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He then completed his MBA from the equally distinguished Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. After that he worked for some time with one of India’s topmost industrial houses.
However, material education did not quench his thirst for knowing the Absolute Truth. The longing for God was so strong that he renounced his career and began traveling throughout India as a sanyasi. Ultimately his search took him to the lotus feet of his Spiritual Master, Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj. He was overawed by the unfathomable scriptural knowledge and ocean of Divine love that he saw manifest in his Gurudev.
Under the guidance of Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj, he practiced intense sadhana while residing at the ashram. He also extensively studied the Vedic scriptures, and the Indian and Western systems of philosophy. On completion of his studies, his Guru entrusted him with the key task of propagating the ancient knowledge about the Eternal Truth, the world over. Ever since he became Maharajji’s disciple and a preacher, Swamiji has been traveling far and wide, awakening hundreds of thousands of Seekers. Using perfect logic, and a simple-yet-scientific approach, Swamiji offers new ways of understanding and applying the knowledge of the Scriptures (from the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta, and other Eastern and Western scriptures) in our daily lives. The hallmark of his speech is the ease with which he dispels various myths and misnomers associated with the various paths of God-realization and the ability to penetrate even the toughest minds and convince them with his depth and scriptural veracity.

SPIRITUAL AND ACADEMIC EDUCATION: Touched by the hand of God at eight years old, Pujya Swamiji’s youth was spent in silence, meditation and austerities high in the Himalayas. At the age of seventeen, after nine years of unbroken, intense sadhana, he returned from the forest — under the orders of his guru — and he obtained an academic education to parallel his spiritual one. Pujya Swamiji has master’s degrees in Sanskrit and Philosophy as well as fluency in many languages.

His father, Shiva Shanker Pande who was a teacher, and his mother Triveni Devi both came from devout Brahmin families and they named him Ambika Prasad. During his early years Ambika Prasad spent most of his time with his doting maternal grandparents, where he became absorbed in Satsang and Prayers. Around this time a sage who was visiting the house saw this charming boy and predicted that he was destined to perform a great service to humanity.
Ammaji also conceptualized and ran a program for empowerment of tribal woman, as well as projects in healthcare and education for the poor tribal people of the hilly areas of Southern India.

At such a tender age the boy also began to display a natural flair for poetry which was inspired in him whilst in a state of Bhavsamadhi. The local Journal of Poetry, Sukavi, published his work thus making him their youngest poet ever.
