After becoming a Sanyasi he meditated and went deep into searching God and self realization. His Guru had full faith in him and made him the Acharya and gave the Gurukul responsibilities to him and share his spiritual thoughts with everyone. Swami Ramdev says, "Whatever is admirable in my life is because of my guru's grace; the wrongs in my life are due to my own ignorance. In my life, after God, my guru gets the next place."

Swami Ramdevji in Jind district at the Kalva Gurukul gave free Yoga training to all Villagers across Haryana. Then he went on to become an Acharya in Mahatma Dharamveer's Gurukul, Kisangarh Ghasera. At the Gurukul he taught the various aspects of our rich Indian Vedic philosophy & Vedic scriptures; the Puransa & Upanishads. Among his practices included a stint in the holy caves of Gangotri at the Himalayas. It is at this place he met Acharya Balkrishan. After few years he went to Haridwar and this city serves as his base till now.

In 1995, Swami Ramdevji established the Divya Yoga Mandir Trust with Acharya Karamveer and Acharya Balkrishna. Acharya Karmaveer is well-versed in Yoga and Veda while Acharya Balkrishna is a physician with a degree in Ayurveda. Divya Yoga Mandir is a promotional vehicle for Yoga.

Swami Ramdevji Maharaj teaches Pranayama, a form of Yoga. It’s admirable the way Swami Ramdevji teaches with simple techniques for practicing the different PRANAYAM (controlled breathing) to the common mass in India.

2. Kapal Bhati Pranayam
3. Bahaya Pranayam
4. AnulomVilomPranayam
5. Bhramri Pranayam
6. Udgeeth Pranayam

Swami Ji has brought out the Indian ancestral science of Pranayam from the grave of darkness. People had suffered a lot from various diseases and some had also embraced death although this magic science of Pranayam existed in India which confined only to some Text Books in techniques but Swami Ramdevji has removed the veil of darkness and the mystery of Pranayam is unfolding itself to the common mass in India and curing a large section.
