The true meaning of the word ‘Guru’ is “one who dispels the darkness of ignorance”. ‘Gu’ means ‘darkness’ and ‘Ru’ means ‘one who removes’. The Guru resembles the trinity Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
Guru is like Brahma-the creator. He creates or inculcates knowledge in the minds of the students. Guru is like Vishnu – the preserver. He maintains or preserves the knowledge in the students. Guru is like Shiva-the destroyer.
Guru removes the darkness of ignorance from the students’ mind. Guru is hence the manifestation of the Para Brahma (the supreme essence) within all of us. I offer my respects to the Guru
