Frequently bought together
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.

The author has given a picture of the beautiful city of Trivandrum, where he was born and his experience with holy men as a child. His spiritual traveling, meeting of his spiritual master and his life in the Himalayas. He has also seen the abominable snowman of the Himalayas, the mysterious Yeti. The book ends with his dream journey to Manasarovar with a group of pilgrims.
Apart from from the contents of the book the author's experience as a journalist has made his writing style very interesting for the reader
A Beautiful first hand account of a deep dive into Indian Spirituality.
Very Nicely written & the matter too is simple & profound.
I waited for a long time for this but it was worth it.
I recommend this book to every decent person.

Great Great book for a beginner and advance spiritual seeker .
Thank you to Sri M and his organization for keeping this book before the public! The spiritual insights are valuable, and additionally the author courageously broaches other subjects such as the 'yeti,' and history of extraterrestial beings assisting this planet's occupants thousands of years ago.
