What is Shabad Guru?

Shabad Guru is the sacred word that takes us from darkness to light. It can be defined as “the sound that elevates and transforms consciousness.”

Shabad Guru is the sound patterns of the Infinite that teach. It dissolves the ego to facilitate the merger of the finite self into the infinite.

  • Sha —”the expression of the ego”
  • Bd – “to cut or eradicate”

Shabad Guru is the voice of the soul.
