The residential program will include discourses on Kriya Yoga, Upanishads, Meditation and other ancient Indian texts.

The four-day residential program is planned for old kriya initiates and new comers who are interested in staying in the benign presence of the Master.  This retreat will give all those who are attending an ample time for Q & A and discussions on various topics pertaining to Kriya Yoga, Practice and Theory, and explanations on various ancient Indian texts. Apart from that, participants will get time for nature walks and meditation every day.


Sri M – spiritual guide, social reformer and educationist – was born into a Muslim family on November 6, 1949 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. His transformational journey, from a young boy to a living yogi, is a fascinating story symbolized by single-minded discipline and dedication. At a young age, he was not only drawn to the ‘truth’ but also the compelling landscape of the snow-clad Himalayas. On finishing his graduation, at an age of 19 years left for the Himalayas. From Rishikesh he walked to Badrinath 220 kms on foot arriving famished in the town of his destiny. Assuming his search was futile, he gave up hope and was on the verge of giving up his life. About to jump into the Alakhnanda River, his fortitude was rewarded by the luminous appearance of his Guru Maheshwarnath Babaji, who swiftly took him under his spiritual tutelage and initiated him into the Nath tradition.

During the next three and half years, he lived and travelled extensively through the Himalayas with his Master, who guided him right through his initiation, his Kundalini awakening, the gruelling journey to Tholingmutt and, the eventual meeting with the Grand Master, Sri Guru Babaji also known as Sri Mahavatar Babaji. On completion of his apprenticeship, he was directed to go back to plains, get married and lead a family life.  He has two married children.

For the last many years, Sri M has been travelling around the world and spreading the message of love, peace and harmony.  He says: “Go to the core. Theories are of no use.” His message seeks to transcend the outer-shell of all religions, by exploring their mystical core to nurture the innate goodness in every human being.  The details about his work can be found online at http://satsang-foundation.org

To promote peace and harmony, he conceptualised and led the “Walk of Hope” a 7,500 kms long Walkathon from the Southern tip of India, Kanyakumari to Srinagar in Kashmir. Starting in January 2015 the Walk concluded 16 months later in April 2016.

He is a prolific writer and has written many books including “Apprenticed to A Himalayan Master – A Yogi’s Autobiography”, “The Journey Continues”, “Jewel in the Lotus: Deeper Aspects of Hinduism”, “Wisdom of the Rishis”, “Upanishads”, “Shunya” among others.

Sri M has conducted Satsangs and talks in Switzerland in 2017 and 2018.  This will be his third visit to the country.



Sri M’s life is the unfolding of the spiritual “rags to riches” story of a man who by sheer dedication evolved into a living yogi detailed in his autobiography “Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master”.
