Guru is a Sanskrit term for a “mentor, guide, expert, or master” of certain knowledge or field who edifies apprentices, learners or students. In pan-Indian traditions, a guru is more than a teacher or edifier. Traditionally, the guru is a reverential figure, with the guru serving as a “counselor, who helps mold values, shares experiential knowledge as much as literal knowledge, an exemplar in life, an inspirational source and who helps in the spiritual evolution of a student”.
