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.

Impressive

I loved a lot of Sri M's experience in spiritual growth.Lot of unimaginable experiences that he shared in this book. Though basically Iam a skeptic and also a believer on Upanishad teachings.... I understand that the possibilities of his experience and the hidden wonders of Himalayas which is difficult to comprehend for a common city inhabitants like me ... Sri Gurubyo Nama:

Non stop spiritual extravaganza

Besides a Beautiful narration by Gaurav, For a spiritual seeker, who has no guru in life, urge you NOT to save this in wish list, BUY it. You won’t regret. What a life Guru Sri M has been living ! For a serious listener, you may be called upon to visualise or at best experience Himalayas. I got my calling.
All I can say is I will listen to many if not all chapter again.

Personally, after Autobiography of a Yogi , I found any book so mesmerizing is this one from Sri M. There is no much preaching but the story is full of awe .....

I enjoyed the story and narration.

Took away a start as the narrator mispronounced the word Gufa (which means a cave in Hindi) as Guha.

The book lacks description of end result

The book for some reason is more elaborate miracles, magic of different yogies. Would have been more interested on the journey or personal struggles of Sri M during the quest of self realization.

As interesting as Autobiography of a Yogi!

While this is the story of a Yogi's journey and I compare it to Autobiography of a Yogi, it's a very unique story with its own merit. An enjoyable and insightful read!

OMG! OM!!!!!

Just as inspiring and well presented as, Autobiography of a Yogi which is a classic in it’s own genre. Engaging spiritual experience so well-narrated! So thankful I discovered this quiet audiobook—inspiring & extraordinary! One of my best Audible decisions: entertaining and flowing like a spiritual river.....India as I never saw it while I lived six months in Goa and the West Bangal (Baharampur: home base) & Darjeeling. Love ❤️ this audiobook for it’s uplifting narration and without affectation! Lovely surprise—open your heart; open your soul at least for 10 hours!

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.

Holy Men

This is a fascinating story of the life of a master, especially the later part of his life. I must admit that hearing the names of all the towns and holy men in his language was melodic but totally went over my head. Delightful listen.

Boring..failed to live upto expectations.

I dont understand why the author made a non malayali read this book out..the pronounciation of malayalam words is horrible...and funny.The author himself should have read it out.Besides the story doesnt take u amywhere...heard 3-4rth and left it..could hold it anymore expecting something interesting to happen.
