Welcome to Patanjali Research Foundation

Patanjali Research Foundation was started in August 2010. This Research Foundation is a part of Patanjali Yogpeeth and is located in Haridwar, in the north of India.

Patanjali Research Foundation (and indeed the parent body, Patanjali Yogpeeth) are named after the great Indian sage, Patanjali (circa 900 B.C.) who first compiled the numerous writings on yoga in a way which is relevant and can be understood by people today.

The foundation aims at:

1. Evaluating indigenous systems of medicine, particularly yoga and ayurveda, so that their physiological effects are studied using present-day scientific methods, with an aim of using these systems of medicine to promote health and manage disease.

2. Studying the scientific basis for ancient practices used in various areas of life (e.g., farming and architecture) so that these ancient practices can be better understood and hence preserved.

3. While the Foundation largely uses actual scientific studies carried out in laboratories, the aim would also be to review the ancient texts for contemporary reading.

4. Evaluating the use of home remedies through scientific studies so that these methods of healing may, if found suitable, be integrated in contemporary healing practices and hence be preserved.
