Does Babaji Still Live?


Is Mahavatar Babaji still alive or real? Sometimes I believe he is real and sometimes I believe he is not. Though while in meditation, I feel he is with me. He even answered my questions every time. But still, I doubt about his presence. Can you please guide me to get rid of all of my questions about him? Also, help me to get Babaji’s blessings.

Dear Friend,

Paramhansa Yogananda assures us that Babaji promised to keep his mortal form so: YES! He’s still here. You can read this promise in Yogananda’s life story, Autobiography of a Yogi, Chapter 33.  Babaji’s actual words are quoted in the autobiography:

  “‘Be it so,’ Babaji said solemnly. ‘I will never leave my physical body. It will always remain visible to at least a small number of people on this earth. The Lord has spoken His own wish through your lips.'”

This was the story told by Ram Gopal Muzumdar.

And you are not the first to pay tribute to their conviction, whether intuitive or otherwise, that the Mahavatar still lives. Anyone who thinks of Babaji with reverence will receive an instant blessing!

Blessings to you!
