Our Inspiration

The name of Shri Swami Sitaramdasji Maharaj is well known to the people of Central India. He was a Yogi of the Satyug- a self realized being, who traversed in his lifetime the different paths to self realization. He was referred to as the re-incarnation of Shri Maharishi Patanjali by Rashtra santa Shri Tukdoji Maharaj.Swamiji has mastered the “Khechari Mudra” and his in-depth knowledge of Yoga Abhyas was beyond comprehension of the common man. He was a Bal Brahmachari, a Param Bhakta of Lord Shri Ram, a Brahm Gyani and a Maha Yogi. Shri Swamiji was born in the village Sarvulata, distt. Gorakhpur (U.P) situated by the river Sharayu to a pious Tiwari Brahmin family in Chaitramas (March/April) in the year 1811. At an early age, he became a Bal Vairagi and left his home to do penance in the jungles infested with wild animals. For a while he stayed at Aashram of Bhagwandasji Maharaj situated on the bank of river Bhagirathi, tributary of river Ganga after which he went to the Himalayas to acquire further Knowledge through Meditation. Later, he perfected yoga under the guidance of Mahan Yogi Swami Satchidhanand. Shri Swamiji visited Pandharpur twice where Bhagwan Vitthal gave him Darshan. After a few years, Shri Swamiji came into the Contact of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj & settled at small Village Ambala near Ramtek, district Nagpur. He stayed there for almost 80 years Practicing Yoga. Still his meditation cave is well maintained near Shri Laxmi Narayan Mandir, at the base of hills of Ramtek Garha Mandir in Ambala Village. So many devotees & followers of Swamiji visit & worship this place regularly. th In 1966, the then Prime Minister of India Shri Gulzari Lal Nanda presided over the function to celebrate 155 birthday of Shri Swamiji at Agrasen Bhawan, Nagpur. Besides others, Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj was also present on this occasion and he described Shri Swamiji as “The reincarnation of Goswami Tulsidas.” Rashtrapita Mahatma Gandhi, Shri Rajendra Prasad, Dr. Radhakrishnan, Shri Jawahar Lal Nehru and Shri Vinoba Bahave were deeply impressed and had greatest respect for Shri Swamiji.
Swamiji traveled to Mandla, where while boating in the Narmada river, he spotted the Pawan Bhumi of Hanuman Ghat Ashram. He stayed there for a few years and built Mandirs, Ghat, Krishi shala & developed an agriculture farm. It was at Mandla, where Shri Swamiji spent his last days. On 19th August, 1969, at an age of 158 years, he let his soul depart
from his body at Shri Hanuman Ghat Ashram on the banks of Narmada.

Our Mission
