Despite intensive research some diseases like diabetes, osteo-arthritis are considered incurable. Indian sages from ancient times had prescribed successful treatment in respect of many such diseases. Based on their principles and classic scriptures, works related to research and development in Ayurveda, have been undertaken intensively by Ayurved Cikitssalaya-a hospital run by Divya Yog Mandir trust at Haridwar. Divya Pharmacy, an ISO 9001 company with WHO-GMP, GLP certifications has also been set up by the trust. There is also a vast botanical garden in which medicinal herbs are scientifically cultivated. Many scarce medicinal plants have been grown with great care after intensive research. Patanjali Yogpeeth an institution to provide consultations and for research with an OPD capacity for 5000 and IPD for 500 persons has recently been completed at Haridwar. These projects undertaken by the Trust are envisaged on a grand scale to provide relief to the masses, nationally and internationally.

Acharyaji has organized a strong team of able physicians to cope with this humanitarian work on a large scale. It is because of his untiring efforts and dynamic leadership that Divya Pharmacy was setup in record time, with leading technology and comprehensive research facilities, for the scientific manufacturing of quality medicines on a large scale, at the same time continuing the heritage of our ancient sages. It is needed one of its kind, serving lakhs across the world annually. Many more are being cured through the other centers run by the trust and by consultations on telephone, mails, post etc. even senior physicians of renowned medical institutions of Indian come here for treatment. Moreover, they also refer to Divya Yog Mandir such cases of incurable diseases, whose effective treatment is not available anywhere else in the world.

Respectful Acharyaji is fully engaged in this cause. His compassionate heart, gracious behaviour, abundant love and sympathetic attitude has been a source of positive thinking and divine inspiration to innumerable people. The following Vedic reference in respect of a physician applies fully to him.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
