A $20 million yoga and Ayurveda center, modeled after Swami Ramdev's Patanjali Yog Peeth in Haridwar, India, is being built in Rosenberg, Texas, reports Rediff India Abroad.
"As many as 30 percent people in the U.S. cannot afford medical treatment because of the cost. Our aim at this center would be to treat and cure such people through yoga and traditional Indian medical systems," Swami Ramdev told Rediff.
The center is scheduled to open in two years, although Swami Ramdev would like it to open next summer. Swami Ramdev claims to have cured millions of people in India of diabetes, asthma, hypertension, obesity, and arthritis solely through yoga. He hopes to do the same in the United States and is striving to create a "disease-free world." Possible? What do you think?
