The Sanskrit root "Gu" implies obscurity or obliviousness. "Ru" means the remover of that haziness. Accordingly one who evacuates murkiness of our lack of awareness is a Guru. Just he who uproots our extreme murkiness, known as Maya, and who rouses and guides us on to the way of God-acknowledgment is the genuine Guru. People additionally allude to their teacher or school instructor as master. The undertone of the statement master for this situation is one who grants fleeting learning (Apara Vidya) and is along these lines in like manner offered appreciation.
An otherworldly applicant, regardless of how splendid, can never achieve such information by his own particular try. This is stipulated in the Shrimad Bhagwatam in which Jadbharat uncovers to ruler Rahugan:
"O Rahugan! One can't achieve learning of Atma and Paramatma by performing repentance, presents, renunciation, Vedic study or adoring gods of water, flame or the sun. Anyway when the dust from the feet of a satpurush (God-acknowledged Guru) sprinkles on our heads, then we can definitely achieve this learning."
Generally, one can just accomplish salvation by serving the satpurush. Treading the way to God-acknowledgment by one's own particular deliberations is compared by the Katha Upanishad as strolling on a razor's edge. Adi Shankaracharya echoes a comparable order: "If an individual, in spite of having: a nice looking, illness free body, acclaim, a pile of riches, and regardless of the fact that he has concentrated on the Vedas and all different scriptures, and has himself made numerous scriptures, however has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has attained nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing."
The Guru assumes an imperative part in boosting the wannabe as often as possible, when he loses track, gets down and out or essentially uses up steam. The wannabe is in this way better equipped to comply with the Guru on the off chance that he comprehends the Guru's grandness.
