The question is very simple. What is the difference between Guru and GOD?
hey gud question....... according to me this question has answer in only one line.try to understand, guru is one who can show us just right way how to reach to the god..... i think u will have got ur answer............:happy::welcome:
The GURU is the "LIGHT" that shows the Creator..the GURU gives us the GYAAN to "see" Him.
Something my Muslim neighbour told me...God is in Heaven !! Heaven is under the feet of Ones Mother !! ???.....Bowing to ones mother.honoring her is akin to being in Gods Heaven.Presence..
I disagree God and Guru are the same.... In mool mantar, it is said "ajooni' meaning without a form. So, if guru is a form of God then the mool mantar is not true.
Guru is a 'Bohaith' a ship, a divine soul which has direct connection with God. He sends the message of God to us. Thats why "Gur Bina Mukt nahi"....
Next question comes, who is a bhagat... A bhagat is lower than a guru because bhagats have only GLIMPSES of God. Not direct link....
The True Guru and the Lord Are the Same:

The Guru and the Transcendent Lord are one and the same, pervading and permeating amongst all.

No difference between the two,
GURU GOBIND DOIEN KHARE, KIS KE LAGEH PAHE,
BALHARI GUR APNE, GOBIND DIA MELAIE.
As Ik Ong Kaar is omnipresent- in all and everything, then our behaviour based on Gurmat ideals is capable of making us emulate our Gurus,hence our actions and truthful living can make us Godly. Ik Ong Kaar is not any monolithic entity but Creative Energy within all.
So, goodness is the manifestation of Ik Ong Kaar in our Gurus and in all the rest of us.
GURU is the GYAAN of Waheguru...the BULB..and the electricity....and two of these together produce LIGHT...
