Dhirendra Brahmachari (1924 – 9 June 1994), born Dhirendra Choudhary, was the yoga mentor of Indira Gandhi - a former Prime Minister of India. He ran ashrams in Delhi, Jammu, Katra and Mantalai (J & K) and wrote books on yoga.

He was born in Bihar in 1924 in the district of Madhubani, in the village of Baseith Chanpura. Inspired by reading the Bhagavad Gita, he left home at the age of thirteen and went to Varanasi. His guru was Maharshi Kartikeya whose ashram was at Gopal-Khera, about twelve miles from Lucknow. Dhirendra Brahmachari studied yoga and associated subjects there. In the 1960s he was invited to travel to the U.S.S.R. as a Hatha Yoga expert to train Soviet cosmonauts. Jawaharial Nehru later invited him to teach yoga to his daughter, Indira Gandhi, to improve her health. The nature of his relationship with Indira Gandhi was the subject of speculation and he was known in some circles as 'the Indian Rasputin'.M.O. Mathai, My Days with Nehru, Vikas Publishing,...
