THE BHAKTI BAZAAR
Babaji is an embodiment of his teachings: Truth, Simplicity and Love. He encouraged people to practice Karma Yoga (selfless service to humanity) and to repeat the name of divinity, his chosen way to do this being the mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Babaji’s most recent incarnation appeared in a cave at the foot of Kumaon Mount Adi Kailash at Haidakhan in India in 1970, and he left his body 1984. During this time built an ashram and temple in Haidakhan and inspired many to live in harmony though the teaching of Truth, Simplicity and Love.

Fire of Transformation:
My life with Babaji…
Description of back of book: A story of love between a woman and the Divine, between soul and spirit, between the earth and sky, unique and precious. This is a deeply moving and personal account of challenge and revelation, of joy, struggle and surrender, of the outer and inner journeying towards self-discovery.
Valeria Bonnazola (Gaura Devi) was a young student in Milan when an inner prompting called her to India in search for love, the love for God. There she encountered the legendary Hairakhan Babaji – referred to by Yoganandya in his book, Autobiography of a Yogi – the revolutionary teacher and claimed Mahavatar who transformed her life completely.
Laura Devi was born on 10th April 1946. She obtained a Doctor of Philosophy degree at the University Statale in Milan with a thesis on Utopia and the New World. Travelling to India in 1972 she spent 12 years with Babaji, the renowned Yogi of the Himalayas. She was one of the first Western people to meet Babaji and his first Italian disciple. The life journey on which she embarked is both mystical and entrancing, simple and yet extraordinary; a story of courage and endurance, of human frailty and the absolute wonder of human potential. She continues to live primarily in India.
