What is the difference between Teacher and Guru?The word Teacher and Guru is identical in meaning yet found few differences when I searched on the net.
The basic word difference between Teacher and Guru is the difference between 'takes' and 'makes'.
For instance a teacher takes responsibility for one's growth whereas Guru makes one responsible for their growth.
Similarly one beautiful difference I found wherein it says a teacher prepares you to answer the questions whereas a Guru will question your answer.
Any other difference between Teacher and Guru? I wish to know from learned members.
