Guru is bigger than "GOD"

Guru is Bigger than "GOD",
"GOD" forgets after making us,
But guru is only helpful in taking back us "HOME".

‘Iswaro Gururatmeti’- Iswara, Guru and Self are identical.

" ‘Iswaro Gururatmeti’- Iswara, Guru and Self are identical.There is no difference between God, Guru and the Self.
So long as the sense of duality persists in you, you seek a Guru, thinking that he is different from you. However, he teaches you the truth and you gain the insight.The Guru is both external and internal. From the exterior he
gives a push to the mind to turn it inwards. From the interior he pulls the mind towards the Self and helps in the quietening of the mind. That is Guru’s grace. There is no difference between God, Guru and the Self."

-Sri Ramana Maharshi

Sri Ramana often said that God, Guru and the Self are identical; the Guru is God in human form and, simultaneously, he is also the Self in the Heart of each devotee. Because he is both inside and outside, his powers work in two different ways. The outer Guru gives instructions and by his power enables the devotee to keep his attention on the Self; the inner Guru pulls the devotee’s mind back to its source, absorbs it in the Self and finally destroys it.

Re: Is Guru really God Himself?

God Himself comes in the form of Guru to teach about Him to His devotee for none can teach about God except He Himself. This is the experience of all sages and saints.
Hence Guru > God.
