Though the word “Guru,” in the most basic sense, means a spiritual teacher who has weight and merits praise and devotion, the Guru Gita goes deeper, clarifying that “Guru” also derives from the Sanskrit terms for darkness and light. The syllable “gu” means darkness, the syllable “ru” light. Technically, the Guru is the grace-bestowing power of God—what many people would call divine grace—and it leads us from the darkness of ignorance into the light of our True Nature. The Guru often works through a human vehicle, an accomplished spiritual teacher who guides others in the way of spiritual practice.
