Guru Mantra

GURUR BRAHMA, GURUR VISHNU
GURUR DEVO MAHESHWARA
GURU SAAKSHAAT PARABRAHMA
TASMAI SHRI GURAVE NAMAHA



This mantra is a tribute to all your Gurus (teachers). It equates Guru to the God. The meaning of the mantra is thus:

Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu,
Guru is Maheshwara (Shiva),
Guru is the Supreme Brahman
Salutations to that Guru

GU means 'darkness of ignorance' and RU means 'one who removes'. So GURU is one who dispels the darkness of ignorance.

Another meaning of the word Guru is 'one who is beyond attributes and forms'. GU stands for Gunaatheetha - one who transcends the three Gunas (Satva, Rajas and Thamas). RU stands for Rupavarjitha - one who is formless. The One who is beyond all attributes and forms is none other than the Supreme Self (the Brahmam) who is resident within each of us. Only God can be regarded as One who is beyond attributes and forms.

The mantra gives three forms to the Guru - that of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the sustainer) and Shiva (the destroyer). Similar to Brahma the creator, Guru creates or inculcates knowledge in the minds of the students. Just as Lord Vishnu maintains the creation, the Guru helps in keeping up the knowledge. Guru is like Shiva, the destroyer, in that he/she helps to get rid of the ignorance from the students' minds.
