Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master (A Yogi's Autobiography) Kindle Edition
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--This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
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.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

You can watch lots and lots of Sri M on YouTube as well. I think you'll like it... watch a couple vieos first to see if you like him, then you will like the book.
Please click "Helpful" below.... thanks!
As for mind boggling truths and revelations, perhaps they truly cannot be painted with ink on the pages of a book. You have to embark on your own journey to find them. What you can find in this book, is the drive to find the truth.
Do not consider it as a book. Book and language in the book is simply a medium to record and express extra-ordinary, the other dimension experiences.
I would recommend that you must read this autobiography at least once in your lifetime.
I've gifted multiple copies of this book in Hindi, Gujarati and Malayalam apart from English to many friends and all of them have had a similar life-altering experience having read the book.
