Apparently Babaji is some kind of Indian saint.
 
user163250
Mahavatar Babaji (IAST: Mahāvatār Bābājī) is the name given to an Indian saint and yogi by Lahiri Mahasaya and several of his disciples who met Mahavatar Babaji between 1861 and 1935. Some of these meetings were described by Paramahansa Yogananda in his book Autobiography of a Yogi, including a first hand telling of Yogananda's own meeting with Mahavatar Babaji. Another first hand account was given by Yukteswar Giri in his book The Holy Science. According to Sri M's autobiography (Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master) Sri Guru Babaji, i.e, Mahavatar Babaji was Lord Shiva. In the second last chapter...
