The creator Sri ‘M’ is an bizarre individual. His uniqueness lies not only in the truth 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 will have to undertake such an odd 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 an interesting 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 as a substitute I saw a jean clad gentleman with a smile of his face, in a position to speak about my problems. In five minutes flat, I said to myself, this is no abnormal man. The peace and tranquility that enters your system is tangible”.
