What Inspired Baba Ramdev To Quit School And Join Gurukul In Childhood? Know Here

Published on 1 May, 2017 at 3:58 pm By

Baba Ramdev wasn’t born in a family of saints, neither was he enrolled in gurukul by his parents. Just like most other parents in India, Baba Ramdev’s parents enrolled him in a school where he was getting a regular education. He studied in the government primary school of his village till class V and moved to Shahbajpur High School for higher classes. He always bought second-hand books, but still managed to top his class.

Then what happened all of a sudden that inspired Ramdev to quit school, flee from home and enroll himself in a traditional gurukul?

A recently published book ‘The Baba Ramdev Phenomenon: From Moksha to Market’ written by Kaushik Deka throws light on all aspects of the life of this renowned personality.

According to the book, reading ‘Satyarth Prakash’, a book written by the founder of Arya Samaj, Swami Dayanand Saraswati, transformed the life of Baba Ramdev. The book, which explains the true tenets of Hinduism, had a great impact on his life and is responsible for giving it a purpose. In the book by Kaushik Deka, Baba Ramdev is quoted as saying,

This book was a revelation to me. It awakened my inner-self, gave me a sense of purpose in life. It introduced me to the wisdom of our ancestors. I wanted to follow the path shown by the ancient sages. Dayanandji made me realise the value of the treasure trove hidden in Vedic education. It’s a progressive approach based on ‘tark’ (logic), ‘tathya’ (facts), ‘yukti’ (argument) and ‘praman’ (evidence). The goal of British education system was to enslave our mind and curb free and logical thinking.

 

The book ‘The Baba Ramdev Phenomenon: From Moksha to Market’ offers a deep insight into Ramdev’s journey from attaining Moksha in the Himalayas to ruling the market with Patanjali products. It talks about the factors that led to the success of Patanjali and the vision of Baba Ramdev and his associate, Acharya Balkrishna.



Talking about the achievements of Patanjali, Ramdev says,

We don’t have high-flying executives who spend 90 per cent of their time in conference calls and making presentations. Our purchase department has men of integrity.  Till now we kept our distribution network restricted to our flagship stores.

 

Baba Ramdev always knew that his parents would never allow him to quit school where he was doing extraordinarily well and take up education in a gurukul. So he quit school, fled from home and enrolled himself in a gurukul in Khanpur, Haryana. The new educational institution he joined gave him traditional education based on the Vedas, which was precisely what he aspired for.

From there, he went on to master yoga, Ayurveda and agriculture. Now, Baba Ramdev is one of the most popular figures of the country, the most famed Yog Guru and founder of Patanjali, one of the fastest growing FMCG companies of India.
