  • Baba Hari Dass is a silent monk and guru who has not spoken since 1952 and communicates by writing on a small wipeboard. This verbal silence is a process which gradually quiets the mind and eliminates unwanted thoughts. While this concept may be initially difficult for most Western cultures to understand, the example of Baba Hari Dass is ample expression of the potential for peace that lies within each of us as the result of spiritual discipline and devotion to helping others. Affectionately known as Babaji, Baba Hari Dass is first and foremost a master yogi, having practiced the disciplines of Ashtanga Yoga from childhood. In addition, he is an accomplished author, builder, philosopher, sculptor, and proponent of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of health and healing. He is also conversant in several languages. Babaji gives his time unstintingly in service to others and has been the inspiration for a variety of service projects. The California based Hanuman Fellowship and the British Columbia based Dharmasara Satsang Society were both formed in 1974. He and his teachings have inspired the Mount Madonna Center and Mount Madonna Institute near Santa Cruz, California, The Salt Spring Centre in British Columbia and the Sri Ram Ashram in Haridwar, India. The Ashtanga Yoga Fellowship in Toronto also take their inspiration from Babaji. Wikipedia
