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.

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...

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!

Swami Rama and Yogananda in one!! Inspirational to the core

Throughly enjoyed the book. First to the narrator, awesome voice and each time he called out “Madhuuu” it felt as if Babaji was calling out.

Very intrigued to learn more about Shri M. Would love to have his darshan one day. Shri M., has inspired me to ensure I maintain a disciplined approach towards my Sandhya Vandanam (Gayatri Mantra)

Thank you for blessing me with the opportunity to listen to Shri M’s autobiography.

Shri Gurobhyo Namah!!
