About Gurprasad

Gurprasad is a veteran of the Indian Army.  He had spiritual leanings from his young days.  Though he read a number of books on the teachings of many saints and sages, his quest for divine knowledge bore fruit when he was initiated in the discipline of meditation by Shri Shivabalayogi in April of 1977.  Since then and over a period of years, Shivabalayogi revealed to Gurprasad the divine knowledge recorded in Laghu Guru Upanishad.

 

 

Laghu Guru Upanishad is inspired by experiences through Gurprasad’s Guru:  Shivabalayogi and Gurprasad’s own meditation.

Description from the author:

"Modern life is very competitive and stressful.  Only a thoughtful few want to rid themselves of constant worries and find a way to live a life of real happiness.  The teachings of Shri Shivabalayogi contained in Laghu Guru Upanishad are especially relevant for such people."

"There are many grades of aspirants; some just want to lead a peaceful life, some want a lower type of salvation, and a few blessed ones desire total freedom by realizing their true natures.  Ultimate liberation is attained only if one knows the absolute Self (or Reality or God)."

"No matter what one’s goal is, the Guru's teaching given in Laghu Guru Upanishad, if practiced sincerely, offers hope to everyone to attain one's desired end."

"The book is set out in question and answer format.  The questions, asked by Gurprasad, have been framed from an aspirant's point of view.  Questions and doubts like these arise in the minds of all those who want to follow a spiritual path."

"The Guru has given answers that are suitable for ease of understanding by beginners as well as more advanced aspirants.  In doing so, the Guru has adopted a rational approach suited to the modern generation and covers all well-known paths to realize the Truth."

"Shri Shivabalayogi’s basic teaching deals with control of mind and it does not advocate any religious beliefs.  Mind is the cause of one’s suffering and unhappiness and it also has the power to get rid of them.  Book knowledge is of no avail unless it is practiced.  Every reader of this book can attain his or her desired spiritual object, provided its teaching is put into effect through earnest effort."
