About the Presenter
Sri M – spiritual guide, social reformer and educationist – was born into a Muslim family on November 6, 1949 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. His transformational journey, from a young boy to a living yogi, is a fascinating story symbolized by single-minded discipline and dedication.
At the age of nine, his spiritual transformation was initiated by his future Master, Babaji (also known as Maheshwarnath Babaji),
At nineteen, wise beyond his years, he embarked on his journey to the Himalayas, seeking a true Master. Maheshwarnath Babaji guided him right through his initiation, his Kundalini awakening, the gruelling journey to Tholingmutt and, the eventual meeting with the Grand Master, Sri Guru Babaji also known as Sri Mahavatar Babaji who took him under his spiritual tutelage and initiated him into the Nath tradition.
In 2011, he wrote his memoir “Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master – A Yogi’s Autobiography “, which became an instant bestseller. Over the years, his mission as a spiritual guide, social reformer and educationist have given rise to many initiatives including:
