Ganesh Baba:

Born around 1890 in Orissa, India, little  is known of his early life; he is said to have married and to have had financial, social, and familial success.  By the 1960s, as an old man,  he had become a renunciate spiritual seeker and he met and interacted with many Westerners over the remainder of his life. Ganesh Baba visited and taught in the USA between 1979 & 1981. He died in Nainital, India, in 1987.

Paul would like the name Paul Giraud used. His nicknames are Taxi Paul (old days) and Babes (nowadays) as he’s been calling his friends ‘babes’ for years.
