Guru has a special sigbnificance in Sikhism as flashed on the f.b. on April1,2011

Bishwa Nath Singh

The word 'Guru' has a special significance in our heart who is adored, loved and respected very truthfully. In Sanskrit . Guru means teacher, honored person, religious person or saint. Sikhism though has a very specific definition of the word 'Guru'. It means the descent of divine guidance to mankind provided through ten Enlightened M...asters. This honor of being called a Sikh Guru applies only to the ten Gurus who founded the religion starting with Guru Nanak in 1469 and ending with Guru Gobind Singh in 1708; thereafter it refers to the Sikh Holy Scriptures the Guru Granth Sahib. The divine spirit was passed from one Guru to the next as "The light of a lamp which lights another does not abate. Similarly a spiritual leader and his disciple become equal, Nanak says the truth."
