Wisdom of the Sages: Unusual Experiences and Conversations With Babaji and Other Great Masters by Sri M
This book could be called a sequel to Sri. M’s Autobiography but can also be read independently by students of mysticism, yoga, Vedanta, and the occult. Its contents can best be summed up by quoting the foreword written by the author:
‘If you recall, I started my autobiography with the words “let us begin the journey” and the last chapter was titled, “The journey begins”.
What I meant was that the autobiography was not the end of the journey. Much that could not be fitted into the autobiographical format remains to be said. In this book the journey continues to greater dimensions of consciousness.’
You’ll find interesting chapters on Kriya Yoga, pranayama, the Masters, and other strange occult phenomena.
SRI M who is also the author of ‘Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master – A Yogi’s Autobiography’ is unique in more than one way. He was born in Trivandrum, 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 years, wandering freely, the length and breadth of the snow clad Himalayan region. What he learnt from his Master Maheshwarnath Babaji, transformed his consciousness totally.
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.
Equally at home in the religious teachings of most major religions, Sri M, born as Mumtaz Ali Khan, often says “Go to the core. Theories are useless”.
Sri M is married and has two children. He leads a simple life - teaching and heading the Satsang Foundation, a charitable concern promoting excellence in education. At present he lives in Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, just three hours from Bangalore.
