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.

First book in Audible by Sri M

Enjoyable experience.

The person who read the book made special efforts to make it enjoyable. Great work by Audible in bringing it this book. I hope people realize the value of this book.

I thank the author for sharing his valuable experiences with readers. There is not a single sentence that is boring.

This book is, in fact,priced on the lower side.

Well read and engrossing

I had been reading it as an ebook and although I was enjoying it, I was moving through it slowly. Then I noticed it on sale on Audible and bought it immediately. I finished the listen over 3-4 sessions. Sri M goes through a fantastic and believable experience with his Himalayan master. I felt like emailing him to ask questions but instead I watched his recent YouTube video on How to meditate. Saw little difference in his oration from that of Sadguru Jaggi...mocking and taking long to get to the point. But I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Simply Awesome and Excellent Experience

Bow down to the holy master. Thousand and thousands of Naman and namaskar to the holy master M, his guru our Guru Maheshwar Babaji and The Supreme Guru Mahaavtar Babaji. I really enjoyed listening to the autobiography. A very wonderful and peaceful experience. Feeling so happy within and was excited every day to listen to the next part of the chapter from where I left. I would love to meet Guruji M and will try to meet him. Was truly into the audio and could imagine all the things Babaji would say. I simply adore the strong will of Shri M to go through the tough journey to find his true master which I don’t believe any ordinary person can do. Loads and loads to write but falling short of words. Blessed are those people who are in the company of their masters , Guru and Shri M. Would love to listen to more of Shri M. Pranam

Enlightening book with excellent narration

For somebody who has read Autobiography of Sri Paramahamsa Yogananda, this book aptly reaffirms one’s faith on the yogic practices continuing to be relevant even in our current times. Narration by Gaurav with his voice modulation for each character is just perfect. His voice has the quality of instantly transporting us to the scene that is being narrated. I have still got an hour or so left to hear and I am sad that my journey with Sri M in this book will end soon. I hope Audible publishes the sequel to this book read by Gaurav once again.

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...
