View Full Version : Balak Baba Nath Ji

Namaste all.

There's a Shaiva Yogi known as Baba Balak Nathji who is popularly worshiped as an avatar of Murugan/Skanda/Karttikeya in Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. I've been able to find stories about several of the miracles he is reputed to have preformed over the course of his life, and about him having a rivalry with Goraksha Nath (which surprises me considering Balak's name would seem to indicate him being a Nath Yogi). I have been otherwise unsuccesful in trying to find any information about him. Is anyone here familiar with this Yogi, and able to tell me a bit about his life and teachings?
