Born in Northern India (1925-1996)
Swami Rama came to fame as one of the 1st Yogis in the 1970's to be examined by scientists who confirmed his control of the brain, heart and circulation.
From an early age he was raised in the Himalayas by his master Bengali Baba and, under the guidance of his master, traveled from temple to temple and studied with a variety of Himalayan saints and sages, including his grandmaster, who was living in a remote region of Tibet.
When he was 28 he succeeded Dr. Kurtkoti, a leader of the learned monastic tradition, as the Shankaracharya at Karvirpitham in South India.
After returning to his master in 1952 and practicing further for many years in the Himalayan caves, Swami Rama was encouraged by his teacher to go to the West.
He applied his mental training to many areas - such as studies of higher teaching, medical studies and and kung fu.
The phenomena recorded while he was a research subject at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, was spectacular:
During a series of biofeedback experiments in 1970 and 1971, Drs. Elmer and Alyce Green observed that Swami Rama could produce different brain waves at will, including theta and delta (sleep) waves, while remaining aware of his environment. Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swami_Rama
Swami Rama also founded in America a Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy
One of his significant achievements is the establishment of a large medical facility in the northern part of India (Dehradun) to serve millions of poor people in the nearby mountains.
It evolved to help over 10 million residents and become too a medical school.
