Baba Ramdev Bio/Wiki:

Baba Ramdev is known as the greatest yoga guru of India, who has taught the world the importance of doing yoga. Ramdev was born on 25 December 1965 in Sayydalipur village of Mahendragarh district of Haryana state in India. Baba Ramdev’s childhood name was Ramkishan Yadav. Baba Ramdev’s life has been challenging.

A Baba, who once sold medicines in the streets of Dehradun riding a bicycle, is today the biggest yoga guru in India, this is such a surprising fact that one can be surprised to know. Perhaps it is the urge to do hard work and do something that makes a person what makes a person and that is the reason why Ramkishan Yadav, who sold medicines on a bicycle till yesterday, is known today as Baba Ramdev.

As a child, Baba Ramdev used to stare at the pictures of revolutionary Ramprasad Bismil and freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose for hours and thought that he too would grow up to do the same thing. Baba Ramdev took the education of Sanskrit and Yoga from Acharya Pradyumna and Yoga Acharya Baldev Ji in a gurukul in Khanpur village after completing his studies up to class VIII from a government school in the nearby village of Shahzadpur.

After completing his education, Ramdev had a desire to do something, and to fulfill this desire, like Swami Ramtirth, he left his parents and brothers forever. He resolved to take Sannyas in his youth and the earlier Ramkishan incarnated in the new form of Swami Ramdev. After this, he started living in Kalwa Gurukul in Jind village where he started teaching yoga to the people around him.

After this, it is believed that he went to the Himalayan mountains and meditated for many years. After this, he came and settled in Haridwar, where he took initiation from Swami Shankardev Ji Maharaj. After this, he started studying ancient scriptures, as well as giving more time to yoga, and meditation. While living in Kripalu Bagh Ashram of Kankhal in Haridwar, he started his own Gurukul and started teaching yoga to the people.

Baba Ramdev said that yoga and pranayama are the solutions to every problem and started Divya Yog Mandir Trust in 1995. Madhavkant Mishra needed a yoga teacher to present a yoga program on the Aastha Channel (Aastha TV) and his need ended in the form of Baba Ramdev. This program is broadcast every morning at 5 a.m. on the Aastha Channel.

Seeing which many people in the country and abroad do yoga sitting at home. Acharya Karamveer and Acharya Balkrishna accompanied him in this program. Baba brought the power of yoga directly to the public through TV and from this he became famous. Today there are many devotees not only in the country but also abroad.

Due to his tireless efforts, yoga became so prevalent in India that India started celebrating International Yoga Day on the 21st of June. Today people in every corner of the world are understanding the importance of yoga. Famous people of the world are associated with Baba’s yoga program. He has taught yoga to Bollywood’s great actor Amitabh Bachchan and actress Shilpa Shetty.

Baba Ramdev belongs to the first non-Muslim community that taught yoga to Muslim clerics in the Deoband district of Uttar Pradesh. Swami Ramdev has promoted Yoga and Ayurveda at a high level to bring India forward as the spiritual and economic superpower of the world.

His expertise and knowledge in Yoga are being appreciated by all in India and abroad. Swami Ramdev took the secret of Pranayama to the common people of India. Many people experienced the real magic of Pranayama. Those who were suffering from incurable diseases had reached the mouth of death.

Divya Yog Mandir (Trust):

Swami Ramdev Ji established Divya Yog Mandir Trust on 5 January 1995 to give concrete shape to his dream. The main objective of this was to create mental peace and attain bliss by completely eradicating all the miseries and physical ailments of mankind. In this trust, Ayurveda has to treat the diseases of people through various types of yoga activities like Ashtanga Yoga, Raja Yoga, Dhyana Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Asana, Pranayama, etc.

Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust:

Patanjali Yog Peeth Trust, Haridwar was established with the objective of establishing Yoga and Ayurveda in the world. The Trust also has a Patanjali Ayurved Hospital which is actively involved in the treatment of many incurable diseases with the Department of Ophthalmology, Department of ENT, Department of Dentistry, Department of Surgery, Physiotherapy, and Acupressure Section.

Patanjali Research Foundation:

The foundation of Patanjali Research Foundation was laid to expand the boundaries of research and development, especially in the field of Yoga and Ayurveda.

It is a multi-national company based in Haridwar, whose annual turnover is in thousands of crores of rupees. Many products of this company are present in the market, on which people have different credibility.


Baba Ramdev is known for his sharp rhetoric and his open and outspoken opinion on social media, due to which he has been embroiled in controversies many times, or rather, he has a long association with controversies.

Rajiv Dixit Controversy Case:

When Rajiv Dixit died of cardiac arrest on 30 November 2010 in Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, his last rites were performed by his brother Pradeep and Baba Ramdev. Due to this controversy had arisen. Dixit’s friends accused Baba of not liking Dixit’s growing popularity, and that Baba played a key role in Dixit’s death. However, Baba Ramdev vehemently denied all these allegations saying that it was a conspiracy against him by political opponents to implicate him.

Corona Virus Controversy:

Ever since the Coronavirus spread in India, Ramdev has given rise to many controversies related to the COVID-19 epidemic in India. In June 2020, he claimed that putting mustard oil through the nose could cure coronavirus. As soon as mustard oil is added, the virus present in the body goes into the stomach, resulting in the death of that virus due to the acid already present in the stomach.

He made another claim that if a person can hold his breath for 1 minute, it means that he is not suffering from any type of Coronavirus disease, asymptomatic or asymptomatic. However, both these claims made by Baba were later found to be false. After this, even in May 2021, he blamed the COVID victims for not breathing properly, spreading negativity, and complaining about oxygen.

Later he came into discussions with his rhetoric against allopathy. He spoke against allopathy claiming that modern medical science is a stupid science and due to which lakhs of patients have died. After the death of many doctors due to corona, Ramdev made a controversial statement about how the doctors who are not able to protect themselves can protect the general public.

His statement resulted in the Indian Medical Association (IMA) claiming that Ramdev was repeatedly taking advantage of the situation and creating fear and despair among the public to sell his medicines. After this, many medical associations present in India demanded the registration of an FIR against him and sent a defamation notice of more than 1000 crore rupees to him.

Ramdev later clarified that he had no ill will towards modern science and good doctors of modern medicine. He was just reading a forwarded WhatsApp message. Following a signal from the health minister, he withdrew his remarks and issued an apology on Twitter.
