At so early an age he became a popular teacher among young generation
always surrounded by youth. Youth felt proud to come in his association and
found a beam of light in the clouds of confusions and darkness. The name of
this young Bharat Bhushan became synonym of 'Guru ji' as youth from all
classes and faiths were at his home or around him where ever he went for
solution of their problems, quarries and curiosity.
It was his life style that attracted the youth from being spoiled and

Day or the incarnation days of Nanak Dev, Kabir, Raidas or Balmiki or
sacrifice days of our great martyrs, his home was always crowded with people
of different faiths who were there to celebrate these occasions with social,
patriotic, spiritual color. His home became the only place where people
enjoyed the literary & cultural activities, social and national
discussions along with spiritual living with liberty to continue their
religious faiths, where youth of different faiths did never hesitate in
celebrating holy Yajan, Holi, Eid, Diwali, and Xmas day all together.
Life of Gurudev Bharat Bhushan ji, is a living example of the high
tradition of great souls traveling this planet when ever humanity is in
great need of such revolutionary seers to spark and flash light of true
knowledge to prevailing darkness of ignorance and sorrows in society.
Guruji is the symbol of perfection in all spheres of life weather it be
academic education, sports, co curricular activities, moral values,
literature, speech, poetry, music, relationships, journalism, social work,
spirituality, ayurveda and bodybuilding as he is the only vegetarian Mr.
India as well.
But the aim of his life was pretty clear from the very beginning. He is a
mentor who has changed the lives of many others. He is just like Paras that
converts everything in gold which comes in contact with him.
The only 'Padma Shri' recipient in the field of yog in 1991 by the then
President of India Shri R. Venkatraman and the explorer of the Indian
spiritual science of Yog in more than 60 countries YOG GURU 'PADMA SHRI'
BHARAT BHUSHAN behaves just like an ordinary man when he caress his cow,
when he waters the plants of his ashram and when he shares his wonderful
moments of life with his students and is always surrounded by youth around
on 30th April 1952 this divine soul carried yog from his previous birth with
him and from his early childhood started sharing his previous birth's
knowledge with all those around him and at the tender age of 6 this child
could recite Yog Sutras of Maharishi Patanjali and complete Yog Darshan was
the subject of his choice at this tender age.
As told by Guruji's father, he used to wake up at 4 a.m. during his
childhood and even his father could never understand why this child wakes up
at 4 without any instructions and start doing some kind of exercises?
At the age of 9, one winter morning guruji's father took him to the
'Company Garden' near their house and this small child saw a few people
practicing yog there. He also started following them. The instructor was
very impressed with the tough postures and personality of this young child.
He introduced this boy to his whole class and said 'This is the true
personality of a Yogi'. He advised young Bharat Bhushan to start practicing
Bhastrika Pranayam to grow his inner powers. This small child replied very
innocently, "No I'll not practice it because my cow is not giving milk
these days." The instructor as well as Guruji's father - both were
amazed to hear this reply. Guruji's father realized that his child must have
been a yogi in his previous birth when after few years he read some where, "One
should never practice Bhastrika without milk." and also when he found
out that even at the age of 6 this child could recite Yog Sutras of
Maharishi Patanjali and complete Yog Darshan was the subject of his choice
at this tender age.
inherited yog from his previous birth, he doesn't remember any formal
schooling in yog and so his parents, as told earlier his father told that
from the very beginning of life he noticed his unusual life style that
differed him form normal children. He used to wake up at 4 and practice
eight fold yog.
But from the very beginning Swami Dayanad Saraswati and Swami Vivekanand
were his role models and he still adore them as his gurus. His visit to Shri
Ramkrishan Paramhans's (Gurudev of Swami Vivekanand) shrine at Dakshineshwar
is an unforgettable divine experience in his life. He was touched deeply
with famous Chicago address of Swami Vivekanand and to his surprise he
received first invitation for foreign yog trip from Chicago only.
He believes the Vedic way of yogic living and the teachings of Yogi
Mahershi Dayanand are the only remedy to all social and individual human
problems today. "I didn't accept the path of yog for any worldly gain
but look at all worldly gains if they are helpful in yogic gains as yog
itself is the ultimate gain", says Yog Guru Bharat Bhushan ji.
ji establishes that Vedanta is the essence of Vedas the ultimate knowledge
to be understood and followed through Yogic discipline that leads to self
realization and the blissful state of being. It is not for a particular sect
or caste but for entire humanity. 'Vedantonaam Upnishad Pramanam'. Vedanta
and Upnishad at the root are one. Just to make this ultimate knowledge easy
and available even to common man Smritis, Puran were introduced where ethics
of spiritualism are introduced through incidents and easy stories of
historical characters but in case of confrontation for fundamentals of
spiritualism all followers of Vedas are bound to rely on Vedanta or
Upanishads only as the religious facts in this holy text are unchangeable.
of Guru ji is not at all for his own, he is incarnated for the betterment of
society and he has always taught us to at least do good to others once a day"
tells the student of Guruji.
Guruji believes that this society has given him a lot and now its his turn.
He always ask his students "What is your contribution in making this
world a more beautiful and better place?"
He has served the humanity through yog camps and sessions for better and
longer living, for self mastery, saved innumerable lives through regular
live blood bank, made the youth more powerful and strong through gymnasiums,
trained the youth about where to use their power and strength and where not
and has given a new direction to the youth through Sanskar Shiksha Abhiyaan
and educational institutes, helped in maintaining the balance of nature and
in fighting against the major problems like global warming through yagya
shala, invoked the feeling of patriotism and the real love which is the love
for Nation through Rashtra Vandana Mission, made the youth aware of the
Indian cultural heritage through lecture demonstrations of Indian Classical
Dance and Music at different educational institutes, yog training Programs
for administrative institutes, police academies, military and paramilitary
forces, educational assemblies, prisoners, mentally retarded & diseased
