During 1952 and 1953, Babaji appeared nightly before his “beloved child” Sri V.T. Neelakantan, a mystic and respected journalist, at the latter’s home in Egmore, Madras, India.

Neelakantan, who wrote them down verbatim. Their introductory chapters were written by S.A.A. Ramaiah under Babaji’s guidance. Three additional books were also promised by Babaji. Our research to date has not enabled us to find these additional promised volumes.Teaching Yoga for Foot Health
