Tapasya Know thyself

Serving Humanity- Since 1997


Tapasya for a cause:

We at Tapasya are dedicating 30% of our time and 40% of our earnings for Charitable Activities

‘Tapasya’ a Sanskrit language word means, ‘the dedicated effort towards an attainment of a noble cause or a positive personal purpose for the self within or for the universe’.

‘Tapasya’ spreads its wings in the arenas of health, personal transformation and inner happiness through Yoga & Natural Medicine.

We serve through the Research, Awareness, Training (seminars, workshops), Consultations, treatments, Rehabilitation & Community services.

We believe and proved repeatedly that ‘Yoga is Medicine’, not just a practice done in studios.

Dr.Dwarakanath (Dr.D!) and Dr. Saraswati (Dr. Swati!) are practicing physicians with 18+ years of experience. Tapasya became a reality with the kind enthusiastic involvement of likeminded friends, eminent artists, who are part of the ‘think tank’. They are all health and life-style enthusiasts!

After extensive research & analysis, our doctors & scholars of Tapasya, understood the link- Mind, Body Axis. Tapasya’s solutions are a combinative effort of modern medical education with the time tested Asian sciences.

We strongly believe in the core philosophy, ‘Nature is the best Healer’. We also find guidance through ancient healing systems like Natural medicine, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Vedic knowledge, Buddhist & Zen principles. The wisdom and knowledge of Yoga, Yogic Philosophy &Yoga therapy gives us the foundation to care and cure. We prescribe Yoga as Medicine.

The whole World spends 80% of Health budget money and Time in treating diseases instead of preventing it. We should start calling it Disease Budget, instead of Health Budget. We at Tapasya are into teaching and treating ‘Preventive Health Care’ and simple stress management.

Tapasya stands to bring about lasting changes in the personal growth of people seeking transformation, beyond just curing illness.

Preventive Health Care

Modern day white collar professionals stumble into chronic ailments as early as mid-30’s. It is because of non-stop deadlines leading to stress induced chronic diseases. The medications are equally toxic.

In the fertility care, treatments involve non-invasive treatments like Yoga, homemade herbal preparations, nutritional counseling, hydro therapy, stress management and meditation.

It is a total residential program for a week, followed by periodical diet natural treatment and yoga supervision. The program is totally tailor made in every individual case. In this program, selections of recipients are with highest of care after detailed analysis. It is because, after every failed attempt, the patient is more depressed.

Short History (Since 1997 to this day)

After graduating from medical school, we (Dr.Dwarakanath & Dr. Saraswati) worked in Gujarat-eastern part of India. That was a wonderful experience. We understood the importance of people and their lifelong habits. We realized the love of food of people and why it should be respected. We realized the standards and lifestyle change limitations people are ready to alter, happily.

The organization was established in the year 1999, as a small clinic, in Tirupur. (It was called Mitra Yoga & Nature Cure Centre/ Mitran foundation). We resolved more seriously to live, learn, treat& teach natural way of living. We ventured into absolute natural healing and Yoga clinical research. We were invited to give visits to Bangalore & Chennai for giving Stress Management & nutritional counseling in corporate sectors since 2002. This exposed us to the plight of white collar empire of India, the Finance & IT sector. We did a thorough analysis of various sectors. The results of studies shown were nowhere close to reasonable healthy living in corporate world.

In the year 2004 & 2005, the 2 years, we dedicated for ‘Awareness campaign’ to make the corporate aware of the health threat and its solution, ‘Stress & the ways to manage it’. The whole campaign of 3000 hours of free seminars/trainings around India was done by big team of Doctors of our organization and some hired help. It was a dedicated free of cost, Herculean campaign in service to the humanity. To quote a few as example who helped us to serve them with our awareness, Stress management programs are, Covansys, TCS, HCL, Birla Soft Technologies, Satyam, Ready Test Go Software testing, Teminos, Kumaran Software, Syntel, Eveready, SBI, LIC, Bank of America (off shore back office) etc.

From the year 2007 until 2014, our activities were more outside of India. Mainly in Europe, Caribbean, U.S.A, Singapore, Malaysia, Bali & Maldives. This gave us a great experience and wonderful traveling. During this period, the learning and living great philosophies was blessed on both of us. Energy healing, Indian philosophy, cultures of world and our Indian philosophy opened new arenas to us. All this showered bliss on us. We had chance to meet, and treat great monks, leaders, business giants, leaders of fortune 500 companies, nationalities of numerous nations and cultures. I would say this gave us a partial realization.

In the mean time, we started our charitable activities in India and parts of other Asian countries- street kids rehabilitation, prison reform and rural health plans.

In 2015- After a yearlong sabbatical of self introspection, Dr.Dwarakanath came to his personal realization. The realization is the seed for creating the principle organization Tapasya.

An Advisory team & a think tank of Doctors, from the fields of Natural Medicine, Ayurveda, Psychiatry, Cardiology and various other areas too, help design the programs at Tapasya.

The eminent artist Ms. Julia Calfee, shares her vast experience, insight and wisdom. She is active in the mission- Tapasya.

The realizations lead to charitable programs for the upliftment of people who live in the margin of the society. And the other realization was that to work for lasting changes in all human. So the Tapasya stands to bring about lasting changes in the personal growth of people seeking transformation, beyond just curing illness.
