About Baba Ramdev Ji
The local people of Rajasthan consider Baba Ramdev ji to be an incarnation of Lord Krishna. It is said that King Ajamal and his wife, Queen Minal Devi, did not have any children. Then one day Ajamal went to Dwarka to offer prayers to Lord Krishna and express his wish of having a child just like him. With the blessing of Lord Krishna, the couple was soon blessed with two sons, the younger of whom was Baba Ramdev ji. Many people believe that Ramdev ji was the 72nd descendent of the renowned Pandav warrior and prince, Arjuna.

Baba Ramdev ji considered all humans to be equal, worked hard to revive Hinduism and was especially known for helping the less fortunate members of society by fulfilling their wishes. The Muslims worshiped him in as Ramshah Pir and believed that he possessed extraordinary powers. It is said that when the fame of Babaji’s power reached Mecca, five learned men from there set out to test his abilities. On meeting Babaji, they were so impressed by him and his powers that they decided to stay with him and to this day their samadhi’s are situated near Babaji’s Samadhi in Jodhpur.
