Is it ever easy to be a Christian? God is so silent. His silence leads to suffering by the Christian and the world. Why, Lord, are you silent? But learning to pray "Lord, sock it to me" may lead to three marks on steel. The permanence of these thoughts changed the author's attitude and action.

About the author

I am qualified to write this book because living its content has been my story. The emphasis on the silence of God, “sock it to me” and “three marks on steel,” are me. Those experiences alone would qualify me. However, having degrees from Baylor University (BA), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDiv), and Luther Rice Seminary (ThD) adds additional reasons. Having written and published other books—example, Let the Children Come In, used in seminary classes for years and numerous published articles. Working with people since youth has been the calling. Serving as pastor of numerous Baptist churches of all sizes in San Antonio, Dallas, Angleton, Houston and Nacogdoches have given me unusual exposure to their experiences, needs, and desires. Close to 6500 counseling sessions have resulted through the years with people from throughout the world. These sessions lasted twenty to forty minutes to an hour to two-four years in some cases. Being a part of the business world, Chairman of Planning and Economic in SW Houston , Rotary (thirty-one years perfect attendance), Lions Club, United Way, Chamber of Commerce, Boy Scouts district, regional and national, denominational and board of trustees/regents of several higher educational institutions have made me more knowledgeable. Being born in South Texas, living here most of life has given me a desire to travel. Thus, traveling throughout the world resulted in many mission, evangelistic and pleasure trips. These have greatly added to a greater understanding of the world and its people. Being disciplined to study and reading four hours daily have been a tremendous asset. The joy of being a father, husband, grandfather, and great grandfather have been quite meaningful.

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. Teachings of Sri Sivabala Yogi 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 who desire total freedom by realising their true natures. Ultimate liberation is attained only if one knows the absolute Self (or Reality or God). No matter what ones goal is, the Gurus teaching given in Laghu Guru Upanishad, if practised sincerely, offers hope to everyone to attain ones desired end. The book is set out in question and answer format. The questions, asked by Gurprasad, have been framed from an aspirants 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 realise the Truth. Sri Sivabala Yogis basic teaching deals with control of mind and it does not advocate any religious beliefs. Mind is the cause of ones suffering and unhappiness and it also has the power to get rid of them. Bookish knowledge is of no avail unless it is practised. Every reader of this book can attain his or her desired spiritual object, provided its teaching is put into effect through earnest effort.
