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.

About the Author:

Sri M was born in Tiruvananthapuram, Kerala. At the age of nineteen and a half attracted by a strange and irresistible urge to go to the Himalayas, he left home. At the Vyasa Cave, beyond the Himalayan shrine of Badrinath, he met his Master and lived with him for three and a half year, wandering freely, the length and breadth of the snow clad Himalayan region. Back in the plains, he, as instructed by his Master, lived a normal life, working for a living, fulfilling his social commitments and at the same time preparing himself to teach all that he had learnt and experienced. At a signal from his Master he entered the teaching phase of his life. Today, he travels all over the world to share his experiences and knowledge.

Review:

Editorial Reviews

This is an astounding book replete with miracles, meetings with masters, description of higher levels of consciousness and spiritual attainment. It is a rather strange tale.

-- Dr Karan Singh, Tribune News Service

Sri M is an enlightened soul, a Guru whom I met years ago. Sri M is very accessible.... I wish he would take me as a disciple but I will have to wait for another birth when I am more evolved.

-- Maneka Gandhi, Mathrubhoomi

Whether or not you are a skeptic, this beautifully produced book makes for compelling reading. And, hey, the author is around, if you want to grill him about the harder to believe elements in the book.

-- The Herald of India

The autobiography deals with transformation of Mumtaz Ali Khan into Sri M as he went on acquiring profound knowledge of the Upanishads, deep personal insights and a higher level of consciousness. Descriptions on the beneficial effects of yoga, meditation and metaphysics are fascinating. Sri M is often termed as modern day Kabir Das.

-- The Hindu

It is prophetic that he will use the name 'Sri M', which will remind him of his Babaji Maheshwarnath, who comes across as the "great master, wise, powerful and loving." The book is, in fact, a tribute to him. For anybody who has interest in mysticism, Sufism and Vedanta, Sri M's autobiography is, indeed, a treasure-trove.

-- The Organizer

What stands out about this book is that its narrative exudes a sense of wonder, for the author often uses the word 'strange' to describe his experiences. Some of the instances that he recounts challenge your sense of belief and disbelief so much, that you don't quite know what to believe. But a little deeper reading, however, renders more meaning to the narrative than is apparent at first glance. He deals easily and honestly with the mistrust between religions just as he also shows how these boundaries can melt away.

--'Speaking Tree', The Times of India
