Profile of HIHT University
The Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust opened in 1994 with 250 beds and currently has 750 beds with plans for further expansion upto 2,000 beds.The hospital is serving approximately 10 million poor and needy people of Garhwal, Kumaon and adjoining areas. The Himalayan Institute Hospital offers various services previously not locally available in this entire region of Garhwal Himalayas. The site of the HIHT Medical City is in Uttaranchal. The state has scattered villages in the mountains where facilities of Health, Education, Water, Transport & Electricity are not available. It is also among the poorest regions in terms of medical resources and among the most needy in terms of high infant mortality and shortened lifespan. It also has the largest number of people living in poverty. The Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust was created to help address these serious needs.

More than just providing a centre for medical services, another aspect of H.H.Dr. Swami Rama s vision was to establish an educational institution that offers a synthesis of the best of both eastern and western medicine. The Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences is the vehicle for this to happen. The opening of the medical college in 1995 marked the beginning of a new era in the development of medical education in India. This is the first private medical college in the state of Uttaranchal. Recognised by the Medical Council of India (MCI),it is a unique model of education for the country. Emphasis is on community-oriented medical education focusing on preventive, promotive, and curative health care, evolving a new pattern of medical education and health care by incorporating a spiritual basis of life in relation to health with modern technology, training students in the science and art of medicine, matching with international standards. One hundred students are admitted each year from all over India and from abroad.

The medical college s teaching faculty is as per MCI requirements. The college meets recognised standards of excellence in medical education and has modern facilities to explore, experiment, and achieve the highest standards in professional medical skills, attracting students from all over the world.
The mission of the Institute is to develop integrated and cost-effective approaches to health care and development that address the local population, and which can serve as a model for the country as a whole, and for the under served population worldwide. A combined approach in which traditional systems of health care complement modern medicine and advanced technology is the prime focus of clinical care, medical education, and research at HIHT. The Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust has been conceived, designed, and orchestrated by Sri Swami Rama, a yogi, scientist, researcher, writer, and humanitarian, who was born in northern India. Throughout his entire life, whether with individual students or entire communities, Swamiji gave and gave without expecting anything in return. He worked day and night teaching students, writing books, and building institutions. In his writings and personal teachings, he always encouraged readers and listeners to develop their capacity for selfless service and to devote themselves to the well - being of their communities, nations, and all of humanity.
The Department of Medical Education (DME) is an integral part of HIMS and is in the process of setting new trends in medical education. A curriculum is being developed that encompasses community-based medical education complemented with the ancient wisdom and knowledge of yoga philosophy and therapy. The DME arranges programs that include regular training visits by experts in various specialities from India and abroad, as well as conferences, workshops, and study groups in selected areas.

The DME will provide an opportunity for individuals from India and other countries to become involved in pre- and post-doctoral academic, clinical and research activities that focus on the development and application of sound preventive and holistic approaches to health and illness, integrating both traditional and modern systems of therapy.

Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Special emphasis is placed on continuing education programs for physicians, nurses, and other health care personnel to keep up - to - date in terms of the latest information and approaches of advancing medical knowledge.
His Holiness Dr.Swami Rama
Each of the many facets of the unique personality of H.H. Dr.Swami Rama represents only one aspect of a magnificent diamond, whose brilliance humbly reflects the divinity shining within. To describe him as a Yogi, Scientist, Philosopher / Teacher, Humanitarian, Writer and Musician/Artist provides merely a glimpse of the totality of the remarkable individual known as H.H.Dr. Swami Rama. He demonstrated what a human being was capable of, what a human being could give to others and to the world. If there is a single phrase that defined Swamiji’s actions in the world, it is selfless service. Throughout his entire life, whether with individual students or entire communities, Swamiji gave and gave without expecting anything in return. Having reached the heights of spiritual enlightenment, he strived with seemingly endless energy to attain perfection in his actions in the external world.

His life embodied the human potential to live in the world, and yet remain above. As impressive as they are, his worldly accomplishments are not what first comes to mind when we think of him. What we remember above all is his compassion, his patience, his wisdom, and his selflessness. He loved us unconditionally, that was his life. Swamiji’s work continues at the Himalayan International Institute, his centers, at the Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust in India, and in our lives as we strive to practice what he taught. He is alive, shining softly in the hearts of his students throughout the world.
Swami Rama Centre
His Holiness Dr.Swami Rama inspired millions of people through the loving and selfless example he set in his life, and through the clarity and practicality of his teachings and writings. Swami Rama Centre (SRC) was created to ensure that his works continue to be available as a source of inspiration to countless spiritual seekers. SRC has become a favorite meeting place for Swamiji s students and disciples from all over the world. A yearly Guru Purnima celebration is organised by SRC. An annual seminar on holistic health with visiting lecturers from abroad is sponsored by SRC on 13th November, the anniversary of Swami Rama s maha samadhi.

The centre itself is a multi-faceted complex where the writings and teachings of H.H.Dr.Swami Rama are preserved and made available to all who are interested. The complex includes a photobiography of Swamiji and meditation hall. The Meditation Hall is a zone of silence, open daily for meditation. Adjacent to the meditation hall is the room where Swamiji left his mortal body. Swamiji s books, audio and video tapes, and other published materials are available in the library. Spiritual books published by the Himalayan International Institute and others can be purchased from the book store. The research wing of Swami Rama Centre contains archive materials of Swami Rama s books, tapes, and original publications.

The preparation of Swamiji s unpublished writings and lectures for publication and audio recordings for public release are among the priorities of Swami Rama Centre. HIHT publications of Swamiji s books and audio cassettes are available by mail order through SRC. The entire complex is surrounded by a beautiful garden which provides a serene and isolated environment, conducive to meditation and contemplation.

'All spiritual practices should be scientifically verified if science has the capacity to do so.' H.H.Dr.Swami Rama

Cancer Hospital by HIHT
The Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust (HIHT) is pleased to announce the development of a new, comprehensive cancer treatment complex at HIHT. The Cancer Institute, inspired by the vision of H.H. Dr. Swami Rama, will address all aspects of cancer control such as prevention, early detection, and state of the art treatment facilities supported by research and education. Alternative medicine and holistic principles as taught by Swami Rama will be included in the Cancer Institute.

The mission of the Cancer Institute is to control cancer in Uttaranchal, and the nation, through approaches which address the whole being: physical, mental, social, and spiritual. It is estimated that the population of Uttaranchal alone has more than 6,000 new cancer cases per year. The majority remain undiagnosed and die without any cancer specific treatment. Patients from remote hilly regions have to travel long distances to reach cancer centers in adjacent states and may have to wait a long time to get treatment. Swamiji s vision for HIHT was to provide health services to the people in this remote part of India and this continues that vision.

We are appealing to all of our well wishers and supporters to contribute to this worthy project. The Board of Directors of the Swami Rama Foundation have voted to make the Cancer Institute at HIHT a fundraising priority for 2006 and donations should be made directly to the Swami Rama Foundation of the USA. The Swami Rama Foundation is a US tax exempt organization and all donations made to
the SRF are tax deductible. Please mail your donations in the US to:

Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE) was constituted by Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, in December 1986 to formulate, organize, direct and manage forestry research; transfer developed technologies to States and other agencies; and impart forestry education. It is also known as The Forest Research Institute and is a premier institution in the field of forestry research in India. It is located at Dehradun in Uttarakhand. It was established in 1906 and is one of the oldest institutions of its kind. The Forest Research Institute is spread over 4.5 km², with the outer Himalayas nearby. The main building has Greco-Roman and Colonial styles of architecture. It has laboratories, a library, herbarium, arboreta, printing press and experimental field areas for conducting forestry research. Its museums, in addition to being a source of scientific information, are an attraction for tourists.

FRI and College Area campus is a census town, between Dehradun Cantonment in the north and The Indian Military Academy to the south. The Tons River forms its Western Boundary. Officers of the Indian Forest Service are trained here, as the Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education that runs this place also runs the IFS, as well as the Wildlife Institute of India and Indian Institute of Forest Management.

Silviculture Museum
The Silviculture Museum displays models and Photographs on Silvicultural Systems practised for efficient and scientific management of the forests. The most important exhibits are a series of large models showing the chief methods practised for regulating the felling and regeneration of a forest. General aim is to utilize the soil fully for perpetual supply of timber in the most paying sizes. These methods vary with the species, extraction facilities, proximity of markets, and market requirements. A diagram showing examples of the methods in actual practice supplements each model.

A model shows the altitudinal zonation of forest types. The species composition in the forests varies from place to place due to different elevations according to altitudinal variations. Attempt has been made in this model to indicate forest species that occur from plains to the higher hills. Different types of tools used in forestry operations form a unique set of exhibits. The sketches of wildlife of India are educative for school children.
Timber Museum
The Timber Museum has exhibits of the best-known and most common commercial woods. One hundred and twenty six commercially important species displayed along the walls of the museum provide the visitors an idea on the characteristics of these woods. The lower halves of the planks have been left in the natural state, while the upper half are oiled with the linseed oil to enhance the features of the timber. Hanging above the planks are photographs of the trees whose planks are displayed along with small maps indicating their distribution in India. The transparent photomicrographs in a separate case show the structure of common Indian Woods as seen under a microscope.

One cubic feet of green wood sample contains about 16 liters of water and it requires seasoning. After seasoning a significant amount of water (2.7 litres) still remains in the wood. If wood is not seasoned, defects like warping, cracking and twisting occur. A number of models representing different methods of air seasoning, steam seasoning and solar kiln seasoning are on display. Timber engineering techniques using short dimensional timbers for large span of trusses are depicted. Cabinet designing is demonstrated using different timbers and various patterns. The center of attraction, however, is a transverse section of a 704-year-old Deodar (Cedrus deodara) tree, which was felled in 1919 from the hills of U.P. The natural and climatic events can be clearly traced by reading the annual rings. Depiction of Indian history starting from the date of construction of Qutub Minar to Jalianwala Bagh incident made on this exhibit makes it very interesting. Another section displayed is that of a 330-year-old teak (Tectona grandis). Walnut and Padauk burr (outgrowths on the stem) specimens are also items of interest. Popular and inexpensive use of plywood, laminated wood, compregnated wood, bamboo boards and diaper are demonstrated and bamboo and wooden springs for furniture and other articles are displayed. Comparative mechanical properties of different timbers are depicted for various end uses. There is a gun carriage wheel made of rosewood, shisham, and Andaman Padauk.
Pathology Museum
Forest Pathology museum houses 900 exhibits of various economically important tree diseases and timber decays. Exhibits are arranged on the basis of two broad host groups: hardwood and conifers. These are further divided according to the part of the plant affected namely root disease, stem disease and foliage disease. Important tree diseases such as heart-rot in khair, sal, teak and deodar and root-rot in khair, sal and pines have been displayed. Degradation of timber and timber products caused by micro- organisms are also displayed. Beneficial role of fungi as mycorrhiza to establish and promote tree growth especially in pines and the value of fungi as a source of food are also displayed.
Entomology Museum
This museum contains about 3,000 exhibits representing the various stages of insect pests and the nature of damage caused by them to seed, seedlings, standing trees, felled timbers, bamboos and also finished products. Exhibits are arranged alphabetically according to plant genera. Important forestry pests like sal heart-wood borer, teak defoliator, Meliaceae shoot borer, poplar defoliators, deodar defoliator, sissoo defoliator, babul stem and root borer, their biology, life history and nature of damage have been depicted along with methods to control them. Some of the insecticides and their application equipments are also exhibited. A depiction of the life history of termites and their control makes a very educative piece. Various commercial timbers have been graded according to their termite resistance property
Swami Rama was born in 1925 in Toli Village of Uttarakhand (Previously part of Uttar Pradesh). He was initiated by his master into many yogic practices. In addition, Swamiji's master sent him to other yogis and adepts of the Himalayas to gain new perspectives and insights into the ancient teachings. At the young age of twenty-four he was installed as the Shankaracharya of Karvirpitham in Central India. Swamiji relinquished this position to pursue intense sadhana in the caves of the Himalayas. Having successfully completed this sadhana, he was directed by his master to go to Japan and to the West in order to illustrate the scientific basis of the ancient yogic practices. At the Menninger Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, Swamiji convincingly demonstrated the capacity of the mind to control so-called involuntary physiological parameters such as heart rate, temperature and brain waves.

Swamiji's work in the United States continued for twenty-three years and in this period he established the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy of the USA. Swamiji became well recognized in the US as a yogi, teacher, philosopher, poet, humanist and philanthropist. His models of preventive medicine, holistic health and stress management have permeated the mainstream of western medicine. Swami ji's finest gift to the humanity and to the people of Uttarakhand was building of a super specialty hospital and the medical college the Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust in Dehradun. In 1989 Swamiji returned to India where he established the Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas. Swamiji left this physical plane in November, 1996 but the seeds he has sown continue to sprout, bloom, and bear fruit. His teachings embodied in the words "Love, Serve, Remember" continue to inspire the many students whose good fortune it was to come in contact with such an accomplished, selfless, and loving master.
