Sri M is a modern yogi who works tirelessly to rejuvenate the spirit of hope, love, peace and harmony. He calls himself M for Mankind. He combines in his person the harmony of faiths: a Hindu yogi who was named Madhukarnath by his guru, he was born into a Kerala Muslim family and secretly left home at the age of 19 in search of a Master in the distant Himalayas. He found his guru after a gruelling search. His candid autobiography, Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master, charts his remarkable journey. He travels across the globe addressing diverse groups, and has re-created his Walk of Hope in places such as Berlin and Birmingham. His epic Walk of Hope in India (2015) covered 7,500 miles over 16 months.

The science of yoga begins to work on the physical body, then the mental and emotional levels, leading to more subtle levels of existence, soul and spirit. It also gives us the method to cope with stress. Earlier, yogic techniques were kept secret but now are being made available to us.

Sri M reminds us to enlarge our vision, to have empathy, and tap into our compassion. He says, “We must try to heal and restore nations, to create an entity fit enough to be bequeathed to future generations.”
