Q: What is the meaning of a Guru?
Sri Sri: The word ’guide’ comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Guru’.
Guru means the one who removes ignorance and teaches you knowledge. A Guru teaches you how to live by example and not just by books. Mother teaches you by example, she is the first Guru. Then you have your Gurus who teach you mathematics, music, football or cricket. Then comes the Sadguru who teaches you spiritual knowledge, to make you see that you are consciousness.
