The genesis of Paramhans Satyarthi Mission ("PSM") is as old as “Satya" itself. Satya is the “God", which is eternal and constant (unchanging) in this perishable and ever-changing world. The fundamental belief “Realization of Satya is Self-Realization" is the founding principle of the mission. Born on 30th November 1897, Our Gurudev, Paramhans Swami Ramanand Satyarthi ji Maharaj, a true yogi and ascetic, devoted his life for the cause of "Satya". Under the guidance of Shri. Nangli Niwasi Bhagwan ji (Shri Shri 1008 Swami Swarupanand ji Maharaj), he attained supreme Self-Realization and vowed to publicize the knowledge of " Satya" for the welfare of humankind. Accordingly, he renounced the world in 1964 and established " Raj Yoga" mandir in Gandhi Nagar and guided numerous devotees in their search for "Satya".
In 1985, after anointment of Swami Keshwanand ji Maharaj as the next guru of the mission, the objectives of PSM were further broadened, consolidated and reinforced. The aim of PSM is to facilitate Self Realization by imparting practical knowledge of Rajyoga. PSM also stands for Purity, Service and Meditation which enumerates a simple mantra for Self Realization. The mission does not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, racial, religious and financial differences for creation of better society and believes in the principle of Vasudev-Kutumbkam (The World is one family), meaning that all the human beings are equal in the eyes of God.
The symbol of PSM is ‘Aatmhans’ which is sitting on lotus flower surrounded by water. As the lotus leaf is not affected by water even though it grows in water, the same way Satyarthi( one who seeks to realize Satya) is like Aatamhans who, while living his worldly life, remains unattached to the worldly affairs and always remains focused on its ultimate aim of realizing Param-Satya. The brief introduction of PSM is as follows:
