Shiva Speaks: Conversations with Maha Avatar Babaji
The Mahavatar is in constant communion with Christ; together they send out vibrations of redemption, and have planned the spiritual technique of salvation for this age. The work of these two fully-illumined mastersone with the body, and one without itis to inspire the nations to forsake suicidal wars, race hatreds, religious sectarianism, and the boomerang-evils of materialism.
Babaji is well aware of the trend of modern times, especially of the influence and complexities of Western civilization, and realizes the necessity of spreading the self-liberations of yoga equally in the West and in the East. That there is no historical reference to Babaji need not surprise us. The great guru has never openly appeared in any century; the misinterpreting glare of publicity has no place in his millennial plans. Like the Creator, the sole but silent Power, Babaji works in a humble obscurity. Great prophets like Christ and Krishna come to earth for a specific and spectacular purpose; they depart as soon as it is accomplished.

Other avatars, like Babaji, undertake work which is concerned more with the slow evolutionary progress of man during the centuries than with any one outstanding event of history. Such masters always veil themselves from the gross public gaze, and have the power to become invisible at will.
For these reasons, and because they generally instruct their disciples to maintain silence about them, a number of towering spiritual figures remain world-unknown. I give in these pages on Babaji merely a hint of his lifeonly a few facts which he deems it fit and helpful to be publicly imparted. His speech is generally in Hindi, but he converses easily in any language.
Does it matter that we know not the patronymic of an earth-released master? The deathless guru bears no marks of age on his body; he appears to be no more than a youth of twenty-five. His eyes are dark, calm, and tender; his long, lustrous hair is copper-colored. A very strange fact is that Babaji bears an extraordinarily exact resemblance to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya. The similarity is so striking that, in his later years, Lahiri Mahasaya might have passed as the father of the youthful-looking Babaji.
His words are the signal for moving with his group instantaneously to another place. He does not always employ this method of astral travel; sometimes he goes on foot from peak to peak. He is known to have appeared in many slightly different forms to various devoteessometimes without beard and moustache, and sometimes with them. As his undecaying body requires no food, the master seldom eats.
As a social courtesy to visiting disciples, he occasionally accepts fruits, or rice cooked in milk and clarified butter. The master suddenly seized a burning log and lightly struck the bare shoulder of a chela who was close to the fire. The karmic law has been satisfied through your slight suffering by fire. He had climbed with astonishing skill to the nearly inaccessible ledge near the camp of the master.
I implore you to accept me as a disciple. Life has no further value if I cannot win your guidance to the Divine. When they returned with the mangled form, the master placed his divine hand on the dead man. Death shall not touch you again; now you are one of our immortal flock.

An avatar lives in the omnipresent Spirit; for him there is no distance inverse to the square. Only one reason, therefore, can motivate Babaji in maintaining his physical form from century to century: the desire to furnish humanity with a concrete example of its own possibilities. Were man never vouchsafed a glimpse of Divinity in the flesh, he would remain oppressed by the heavy mayic delusion that he cannot transcend his mortality.
Jesus knew from the beginning the sequence of his life; he passed through each event not for himself, not from any karmic compulsion, but solely for the upliftment of reflective human beings. His four reporter-disciplesMatthew, Mark, Luke, and Johnrecorded the ineffable drama for the benefit of later generations. I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. The night was bright with moonlight and the glittering stars. After I had sat in patient silence for awhile, my attention was drawn to a huge stone slab near my feet.
It rose gradually, revealing an underground cave. As the stone remained balanced in some unknown manner, the draped form of a young and surpassingly lovely woman was levitated from the cave high into the air. Surrounded by a soft halo, she slowly descended in front of me and stood motionless, steeped in an inner state of ecstasy.
She finally stirred, and spoke gently. I have asked him and also Lahiri Mahasaya to come to my cave tonight to discuss a matter of great importance. It approached nearer and nearer until, with a blinding flash, it appeared by the side of Mataji and condensed itself instantly into the human form of Lahiri Mahasaya.
He bowed humbly at the feet of the woman saint. Descending swiftly, the flaming whirlpool neared our group and materialized itself into the body of a beautiful youth who, I understood at once, was Babaji. He looked like Lahiri Mahasaya, the only difference being that Babaji appeared much younger, and had long, bright hair. An ethereal sensation of beatific glory thrilled every fiber of my being as I touched his divine flesh.
I wanted to discuss it with you tonight. Why should you leave your 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. According to Yogananda's autobiography, he has a sister called Mataji meaning "Holy Mother" who also has lived throughout the centuries. Although only three pages in the book are dedicated to her, she is described by Ram Gopal as "young and surpassingly lovely" as well as a "glorious woman.

In the book Ultimate Journey by Robert Monroe , the author visits a person through his astral projection although no name is mentioned who turns out to have lived one single life for years, which would suggest that he was born around CE. The Tamil film Baba written by Rajinikanth was based on Babaji. In his autobiography Apprenticed to a Himalayan master: a yogi's autobiography , Sri M Mumtaz Ali narrates his meeting with Babaji near Neelkant hill.
