‘Gu’ means darkness and ‘Ru’ means dispelling. ‘Guru’ means one who dispels darkness. People should fill their minds with the all-embracing Love Principle. To experience the fullness of Love, you have to fill your hearts completely with Love. That will be the result of total devotion. Guru has another meaning too. ‘Gu’ means gunaatheetha (beyond the three strands of energy of which the Cosmos is composed) and ‘ru’ means rupa-rahitha (devoid of any particular form). Now, no mortal has transcended the guna (quality) and rupa (form). God alone can be described as unaffected by these. And, God is the Guru, right in your heart, ready to lead and enlighten. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-pervading. – BABA
Guru is the supreme being who removes ignorance in the disciple and teaches discipline of senses and the mind. When one is free from the shackles of samsara, he or she can see the God within.
Let us pray to our Jagathguru, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba by singing these Guru bhajans.
