Each one of us has felt the need of a guru in our lives at some point or the other. We’re not capable of doing everything on own. We need someone more knowledgeable and intelligent to make our lives happier, enlightened, and more comfortable.
Literally speaking, guru means a guide, teacher, expert, or master of a certain field or knowledge. But Guru isn’t just physical form. It’s a tatva, an element of quality inside you, an energy, a medium through which knowledge or gyana flows to the disciple. Guru is the mirror who will clearly show you your true self and will help you elevate, but only if you are willing to rise. In fact, a guru literally carries his pupil on the journey of evolution. And he doesn’t do this to get anything in return. He just wants us to become better human beings.
The best way to teach your child the importance of guru is by giving him a name meaning the same. To help you narrow down the search, MomJunction has sorted a list of baby names meaning guru. Apart from names meaning guru, we’ve also added the names of renowned gurus of all time. Take a look.
