How Can I Meet Mahavtar Babaji? How to Get His Blessings?


How can I meet the greatest guru, Mahavtar Babaji, or get Babaji’s blessings?

—Vanshaj Upadhayay, India


Dear Vanshaj,
Getting the blessing of Babaji is not difficult. It only requires deep sincerity and devotion. You read in the Autobiography of a Yogi: “Whenever anyone utters with reverence the name of Babaji, that devotee attracts an instant spiritual blessing.”

To meet Babaji, on the other hand, is not such a simple task. He is visible, as we read, only to a small band of highly developed disciples. Once I asked a great yogi in the Himalayas that same question, and this is what he answered: “In deep meditation you need to withdraw your prana from the body into the spine. Then you lift it and exit the body. On that subtle level you will meet Babaji”.

You might work on that process. The best technique for doing so is Kriya Yoga, which Babaji sent to the world.

In other words, you need to develop soul-vision, soul-eyes. Even Sri Yukteswar, great as he was, needed to meditate deeper to see Babaji, who told him: “Child, you must meditate more. Your gaze is not yet faultless–you could not see me hiding behind the sunlight.”

All the best for your ever deeper gaze, beholding the infinite spirit of the deathless Babaji,
