Sri M is a remarkable man, a great yogi and Vedantist who leads the change in the world for peace and enlightened leadership. He is a teacher conversant with the major world faiths, one who cuts across barriers of caste and creed. 

Sri M was born into a Muslim family in Kerala and but left home secretly at the age of 19 in search of a yogi in the Himalayas. He met his guru Sri Maheshwarnath, who initiated him into the Nath panth. They spent the next 4 years living in caves, and he was taught Vedanta, kriya yoga, Upanishads and all other strands of Hinduism. His transformation from a teenager into a living mystic was characterized by single-minded discipline and dedication. His autobiography, Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master, has wit and compassionate wisdom, and collocates the miraculous and the quotidian. Spirituality is not separate from worldly life, and he writes: “The world around you is your touchstone to spiritual practice”.
