Dr Ron Harris, one of the great Homeopath masters, a retired teacher fondly known as Dadaji passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 4, 2018 4:30pm EST at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Dadaji was one month short of his 102nd birthday.
Dadaji was thinking about others until the end. His last words were:
Thank you. God bless you all.
Dadaji shared a few words of wisdom to guide us all through this difficult time:
Don’t be attached to this body, which is only a vessel – work towards your soul
Always hold your chin up high as you face life
Be in peace
To honor Dadaji, a Celebration of Life on Saturday, January 13th, 2018 will be held. It will be held at Burlington Seniors’ Centre (details below) between 10:00a – 4:00p.
- If you have pictures that you would like to share during this gathering, please email them to [email protected]. We will try our best to include them in a slideshow which will highlight how he touched so many lives.
- We request that there be no flowers.
- If you wish to honour his memory, we suggest making a donation on behalf of Dadaji to a charity of your choice or to Evidence Action’s No Lean Season(https://www.givewell.org/charities/no-lean-season). We chose No Lean Season because Dadaji believed in teaching others to help themselves.

This is Dadaji’s final message to all:
To my friends and relations,
Thus, I came to heal the sick
Now let me go in peace.
Unlamented, let me die.
Not a soul may tell where I lie.
Peace be with you,
Life and Works of Dr. Ron Harris
Dr. Ron Harris had been educated in Asia, Europe and North America in the fields of Medicine, Politics, Economics, Chemistry, Town Planning, Cost and Works Accountancy, Chemical Engineering, Law, Medical Herbology, Naturopathy, Chinese Medicine, and Education. During the partition of British India he closely followed Mr. Gandhi’s philosophy and took keen interest in Homeopathic Medicine. He was right next to Gandhi when he was assassinated.
Dr Ron Harris has been very much involved to have Homeopathy fully recognized in North America since 1960 and cause Nova Scotia to allow Allopaths provide Homeopathic care, preaching Gandhian philosophy “just as non-violence will never fail, Homeopathy never fails, but it may, owing to faulty application of the principles”. He spent most of his time to encourage Homeopathy, be it education, teaching, training, or setting up a charitable hospital or dispensary. He used Vega and Radionics. Radionics is a form of distant treatment employing the principles of resonance, while Vega uses bio-energetic regulatory technique. He has taught at high school and university levels in England, Alberta, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and has written many books in the field of science.
His most recent book was called “The Science of Healing, According to the Principles of Homeopathy” and another book will be published shortly by B.Jain Publishers (P) Ltd. Ron Harris was a gold medalist in Homeopathy and has won many other awards. He has been honoured by federal, provincial and local governments internationally; the chemical institute of Canada; Dr. Nielsen’s Homeopathic Medical Education and Research Centre in Winnipeg; Homeopathic Medical Council of Canada; Canadian institute of Homeopathic Medicine; Homeopathic Medical Association of Canada; Homeopathic Medical center of Canada; Homeopathic Medical centre – India; Department of Education – Nova Scotia, Canada and students. He was nominated for Order of Canada in 2002 and again in 2006.
Throughout his life, he has provided his home as a simple cheap accommodation to international youth and spoken out on discrimination against visible minorities. He has devoted his time to Indo-Western relationship both in the United Kingdom and Canada. He served two terms on Health Canada Expert Advisory Committee on Natural Health products. He has served as an adviser-premiers’ council on health strategy, Government of Ontario. He is an advisor to Canadian Coalition for Homeopathic Medicine; Canadian Institute of Homeopathic Medicine, Dr. Nielsen’s Homeopathic Medical Education and Research Centre, Homeopathic Medical Centre of Canada, and Centre Homeopathic de Quebec. He has also been consulted by the provinces of Manitoba, British Columbia, Ontario and government of India on the subject.
He is founder of the Canadian Institute of Homeopathic Medicine, a non-profitable organization, from which number of candidates have graduated. Only a limited number of candidates with a B.Sc. or equivalent are selected to enter the course, which requires minimum of 4000 hours class work over four years course, minimum of 1000 hours clinical experience under a qualified Homeopath, passing of final examination, submitting 35 case studies, submitting a dissertation and defending it. He was also the founder of the Canadian Coalition for Homeopathic Medicine under which he has united homeopaths across North America. In 1993 he spent six weeks in India visiting Homeopathic institutes. 2008, he received Life Time Achievement award from both Canada and India. That same year he donated his 20 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 3 living room, and 2 kitchens mansion to Wilfred Laurier University to provide accommodation to international students in need.
In 2009, on a holiday to India, he visited the Rakum School for Blind Children, www.rakum.org, where he was troubled to see the plight of blind children. Soon his dream luxury holiday turned into setting up a project “Celebrate with Blind Children”. The project no longer has paid up help, instead for every blind child, it also take his/her sibling. These siblings cook, clean and care for their brothers and sisters and receive free meals and education. The blind children seem much happier and eager to receive education and in spite of handicap, stand on their own legs. The school for blind children does not seek any government assistance or handouts from public. The project encourages people to donate the amount or part of it, they would spend on celebrating their anniversary, such as birthday, wedding, in memory of loved ones, etc. This donation provides for meals and education of the children. A $20.00 donation provides breakfast for 180 blind children. For his efforts he was honoured by the lieutenant governor of Ontario for humanitarian services. A school for boys was set up in Vellore, India with donations from Mani and Geetha Shanker, under Pujya Swami Dayananda’s “Aim for Seva” program. He donated his time every day from 3:00 a.m. to midnight providing health care to those in need. He also set up scholarships in memory of his wife Joan Harris (nee Hope) and his parents, and is in talks with Canadian universities for Exchange Student programs.
Though retired, Ron Harris, after over half a century of experience, he continued to serve on the Transitional Council of College of Homeopaths of Ontario and provide health care taking only CHRONIC and ACUTE challenging cases.
