Delhi Yoga Sabha is a pioneer organization in the field of Yoga which has been serving humanity by treatment of various ailments for the last more than forty years. Although formally established in Delhi in 1967, the roots of this organization dates back to 1921 when Yogeshwar Ram Lal Mahaprabhu ji established His first Yoga centre in Lahore (Integrated India), followed by three more ashrams in Chhehretta (Amritsar) Pb., Rishikesh (Uttra Khand) and Sawain Gram (U.P.). There is a prophecy about holy birth of Yogeshwar Ram Lal Mahaprabhu (written in Tamil on Taad Patra in Kak Nadi Samhita) that he is master of Ashtang Yoga and there is no difference between Him and almighty God. Numbers of godly miracles were performed by Him for the benefit of mankind. For Him yoga was an alround development of body , mind and soul. At a time when Yoga was considered suitable only for the monks and saints, He went from place to place to teach Yoga as an instrument for sound health and sound mind embodied in His own radiant self-realised personality.
Shri Mahaprabhu Ji during his life time conferred all His spiritual powers upon His chief disciple Rev. Yogeshwar Mulakh Raj Ji Maharaj, who as a result of this, remained in a state of Samadhi for twelve years. He also established Shri Yog Abhyas Ashram at Sanyas Marg, Kankhal (Hardwar) in the year 1952. It was in the year 1941 when Rev. Sadgurudev Yogeshwar Swami Devi Dayal Ji Maharaj (third in line of succession) was attracted by the spiritual powers of Yogeshwar Mulakh Raj Ji Maharaj to be at his feet at Yog Sadhan Ashram, Chhehretta (Amritsar) Pb. and since then with the blessings of his Gurudev and Dadagurudev, he had been able to disseminate his Master’s teachings throughout the length and breadth of the country. He established over forty yoga centres/Yoga Temples/Yog Chikitsalayas and twelve state-level registered yoga sabhas for management of these yoga centres. Under his sublime guidance countless people from all walks of life irrespective of caste, creed, colour and religion had been trained to remain healthy throughout life without use of medicine, cured of various ailments .Aspirants (Mumukshus) for higher Yoga have been granted Eternal Peace and Bliss.
