Last year, an extraordinary biography was recommended to me by an Indian friend who practices Kriya Yoga. Some years ago, he gave me my copy of Paramhansa Yogananda’s “Autobiography of a Yogi”, to which I’ve referred in the past. Whilst a very different book, “Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master: A Yogi’s Autobiography” by Sri M (Sri Madhukarnath) is also the autobiography of a Master of Kriya Yoga, a practice “reintroduced” to the world by Sri Guru Babaji (also known as Sri Mahavatar Babaji), known by some as simply the “deathless one”. Evidence suggests he is over 2,500 years old and looks about 30.
Recently I came across a wonderful interview with Sri M as part of the series “Buddha at the Gas Pump” by Rick Archer. Archer is an American in his 60s who has a firm grasp of the Indian spiritual literature and practice and, as such, makes the perfect interviewer of Sri M for the Western ear. The core of the interview is a series of stories from Sri M’s book; stories of extraordinary experiences that most would struggle to accept, including his meetings with Sri Guru Babaji, being given natural medicine by a yeti, and many, many more.
For me, the most striking aspect of this interview is the unwavering humility of Sri M. As he openly recounts, he had a past life where arrogance caused him to fail early on that life’s journey, and he has so completely mastered that temptation in this life, despite the knowledge and skills that he so clearly possesses.
A beautiful interview of a beautiful man.
I commend this interview to you.
