Publisher's Summary

The author Sri "M" is an extraordinary individual. His uniqueness lies not only in the fact that at the young age of 19 and a half, he travelled to snow-clad Himalayas from Kerala, and there he met and lived for several years with a "real-time" yogi, Babaji, but also that he should undertake such an unusual and adventurous exploration, given his non-Hindu birth and antecedents. 

The metamorphosis of Mumtaz Ali Khan into Sri "M", a yogi with profound knowledge of the Upanishads and deep personal insights, born of first-hand experiences with higher levels of consciousness is indeed a fascinating story. 

The bonus for those interested in the secrets of yoga, meditation, and sankhyan metaphysics is that Sri "M" is still living and easily reachable. He leads a normal life, married with two children, wears no special robes and conducts himself without pomp or paraphernalia. 

Someone who met him recently said, "I expected a flashy godman and instead I saw a jean clad gentleman with a smile on his face, ready to discuss my problems. In five minutes flat, I said to myself, this is no ordinary man. The peace and tranquility that enters your system is tangible."

Fascinating tale of self discovery

Out of words to describe what the author has lived through his years of self discovery. Cannot have enough of what ignited the author through phases of self discovery. If the reader is blessed with even 1% of the oozing devotion evident in each thought, its time worth invested. Hand folded grace to the gurus and to the author whose account is overwhelmingly inspiring to all who are open to the thought of finding existence of god within themselves.

A fantastical Story...how true, judge for yourself!

It’s a must read book even if you are a non believer, read it as a fiction. For my belief I would say that what Mr. M is the truth not because I believe it but because he believes it, he has experience it. Whether he physically experienced it all or certain experiences were delivered to his minds eye is debatable(chapter 40 hints at minds eye). Adding to the authenticity of the account is his repeated saying that people won’t believe it but writes it anyway even at the risk of being called a man of unsound mind. Though I have met people of greater spiritual inclination than me who said that spirituality flows beyond the borders of religion unhindered.
I liked that the book talks about the dangers of following the fake gurus and saints.
Very exhaustive book on journey undertaken by an aspiring yogi and what he experienced.

Sri M's journey

It is a description of Sri M's journey from childhood, youth, his spiritual training under Baba ji. There is a lot of description about most of the present spiritual masters in India. All are connected. It also follows the formation and establishment of satsang foundation. Some of it is there in You tube talks but there is a lot of extra information too. The narration was good and dramatic after adjusting initially to the voice, having heard Sri M's videos.

I inhaled this book.

I could not quit listening to this book. It was truly amazing and I loved every second of it. I long to meet this author. For some of the seemingly strange portions of the book, I am thankful I was luckily prepped for, because my husband and I watch a lot of Gaia TV. So it wasn't too far-fetched for me. I hope he can come to the us one day. (My family is very concerned at thought of me going alone) In the meantime, I have got to read the rest of his written works.

An amazing book...

A true book that gives importance of meditation thru which one can achieve anything from this universe, from this life or past life and see all religions as one ... there are so many fantastic ‘karmic’ examples that opens ones’ eyes.. and path to self realization/introspection...
