Ajapa Yog is as old as the creation itself.
Since ancient times, the holy land of India has seen the birth of great sages and Gurus, who have contributed to the spreading of this unique knowledge of Ajapa Yog, teaching and training people for the welfare of mankind. Ajapa Yog traces its origin to thousands of years old Vedas & Upanishads, ancient spiritual texts of India.
Our Upanishads and Vedas reveal that Ajapa Yog was first taught to the Saptarishis by Adi Guru Mahadev himself. Lord Krishna later revealed the science to Arjuna, during the Mahabharata war. References of Ajapa Yog are found in the texts of the saints like Meerabai, Daadu Saheb, Guru Nanak Dev, and Kabir Saheb.
This unique science was kept a secret through the ages at Siddhashram (a hidden monastery in the Himalayas). It was only in 1860 that the great sage Shri Swami Purnanand Paramhans (1834-1928) brought this science from Siddhashram to the world.
In 1860’s Shri Swami Purnanand Paramhans learned Ajapa Yog and started teaching this secret knowledge to the people of India. After him, his mission was taken over by Shri Swami Bhumanand Paramhans (1873-1958), later it was carried on by his disciple Shri Swami Janardan Paramhans (1888-1980).
In 1970 Swami Janardan Paramhans was invited to visit the ‘Academy of Science’ in Prague and subsequently to Germany, Canada, and the US to deliver lectures on Ajapa Yog. He made many disciples and later established an Ashram at California.
Today Science of Ajapa is being taught by Shri Swami Guru Prasad Paramhans (1966 – Present). Swami Guru Prasad is the living master of Ajapa Yog and teaches this science in Ajapa Ashrams and several Ajapa Centers around the world.
Ajapa Meditation Centre – Gyan Ganj is a spiritual training center situated at the foothills of Dalma range near the beautiful Dimna Lake in Jamshedpur, India. Several Sadhana Shivirs (meditation camps) are conducted here during the year. Ajapa followers are trained to practice intense meditation and attain higher states of consciousness at Gyan Ganj.
