Wikipedia Summary for Sadhguru

Satguru (Sanskrit: सत्गुरु), or Sadguru (Sanskrit: सद्गुरु), means the 'true guru' in Sanskrit. The word 'Satguru' signifies three things- Sat+Gu+Ru - Sat means truth; Gu means darkness and Ru means Light. Thus Satguru means a divine personage who removes the darkness of ignorance and gives Divine Light to human beings. However, the term is distinguished from other forms of gurus, such as musical instructors, scriptural teachers, parents, and so on. Satguru is a title given specifically only to an enlightened rishi or saint whose life's purpose is to guide the initiated shishya on the spiritual path, the summation of which is the realization of the Self through realization of God. Technically,

A satguru has some special characteristics that are not found in any other types of spiritual guru. The words sant and satguru were prominently used in the spiritual ideology of Kabir in the 15th century. Kabir says Satpurush Ko Jansi, Tiska Satguru Naam, meaning the one who has seen the supreme lord of truth- Satya Purush is satguru. Devi dewal jagat mein, kotik poojey koye. Satguru ki pooja kiye, sabb ki pooja hoye. Kabir says that worship of satguru includes in it worship of all deities. In other words, satguru is the physical form of God (Sat Pursh).

In Sikh philosophy, Nanak, defines satguru as truth itself and not a physical entity. This truth emanates from reality and requires no blind faith. In the Japji Sahib he writes Ek onkar, satguru prasad (There is one creator, this knowledge I have learnt from reality). The Sikh (student) learns from reality as presented by the creator. Truth (sat) itself is the teacher (guru).

"There is no one greater in the three worlds than the guru. It is He who grants divine knowledge and should be worshipped with supreme devotion." - Atharva Veda, Yoga-Sikha Upanishad 5.53. yt, 26
