In "The Journey Home" by Radhanath Swami, there are several accounts of his encounters with spiritual masters including Mahavatar Babaji. Here is a summary of one such encounter with Babaji in points:


  • Radhanath Swami was traveling with a group of seekers in the Himalayas, searching for spiritual guidance.

  • They met an old sadhu who offered to take them to a cave where they could meditate and receive spiritual instruction.

  • As they were meditating in the cave, Radhanath Swami saw a bright light and felt a powerful presence.

  • He saw a man who looked like Mahavatar Babaji standing before him, radiating a divine light and love.

  • Babaji told Radhanath Swami that he was pleased with his spiritual journey and encouraged him to continue on the path of devotion.

  • Babaji also gave Radhanath Swami a mantra to chant and instructed him to share it with others.

  • After their encounter, Babaji disappeared and Radhanath Swami was left feeling deeply touched and inspired by the experience.

  • He continued on his spiritual journey, practicing devotion and sharing the mantra that Babaji had given him.

  • According to "The Journey Home" by Radhanath Swami, the mantra that Mahavatar Babaji gave him is the "Hare Krishna" mantra. The mantra is a chant consisting of the names of Krishna and Radha, two of the most prominent deities in the Hindu tradition. The mantra is considered a powerful tool for spiritual purification and is often chanted in devotional practices such as kirtan and japa meditation. Babaji instructed Radhanath Swami to chant the mantra regularly and to share it with others as a way to spread love and devotion in the world.
