Mahavatar Babaji

Babaji is the guru of Lahiri Mahasaya. His powerful, sublime influence wafts over an unknowing world without fanfare — secret and sacred, like the reclusive master himself.

It is believed that Babaji is deathless. He is the only one of these four great masters who is still in his body. Although originally born centuries ago, he maintains a physical presence even today in a remote area of the high Himalayas near Badrinath. He has a small group of disciples who travel with him from peak to peak.

Yogananda called Babaji a “mahavatar” — a great incarnation of God. Although all self-realized masters are one with the Infinite, Babaji especially epitomizes the highest pinnacle of spiritual attainment.
