The name of the Parm-Aatma “God” is proclaimed by Guru Nanak Dev ji as WAHEGURU. It is made up of three words –

Wahe – wonderful, magnificent, superb, astonishing, fantastic, brilliant, great, breathtaking etc. etc.

Gu – darkness, dusk, gloom, night, obscurity, absence of spiritual illumination i.e. spiritual ignorance

Ru – light, spiritual illumination, enlightenment

So altogether it means “Oh Wonderful God, you are the spiritual enlightener and dispeller of ignorance.
