Sri M is a living Yogi and disciple of Sri Maheshwarnath Babaji who in turn was the disciple of Mahavatar Babaji.Sri M is also known as Sri Madhukarnath ji. Sri M lives at Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, India. He should not be confused with M or Mahendranath Gupta, a disciple of Ramakrishna. Childhood Sri M was born as Mumtaz Ali Khan on 6 November 1948 in a devout Muslim family in Trivandrum, Kerala. Sri M’s maternal grandmother had Sufi connections and told him many Sufi stories in his childhood. Between age of five and nine, he was exposed to Hinduism and Christianity. Even at that age, he noticed how prejudiced people belonging to one religion were about other religions. Sri M had a strange liking and urge to go to Himalayas from childhood. At the age of nine, his Guru Sri Maheshwarnath Babaji first met him. The Guru asked Sri M if he remembers anything. Sri M could not recall anything. Guru told him that he will understand it later. After many years, Sri M met the same Guru Sri Maheshwarnath Babaji in Himalayans and remembered their first meeting and the karmic link between two.
