A Gursikh, quite simple, is a Sikh man or woman who has completely surrendered their body, mind and soul to The True Guru, Waheguru. The Gursikh lives their life remembering Waheguru with each breath and abide by the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Jee. The Gursikh is a humanitarian - one who loves, serves and cares for all of mankind and sees all as equal. A Gursikh is one who has taken Amrit and offered their head to the Guru, but it takes much more than taking Amrit to live the life of a true Gursikh. Read below just a few examples of some of the greatest Gursikhs to have ever graced this Earth.
The jathedhars of Damdami Taksaal have led the Sikh nation since the times of the Tenth Master (Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee). They have been some of the most high-spirited, humble and greatest beings to have graced the Earth and have set good examples on how to live life in accordance with the teachings of the Ten Gurus and Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee.
The word "Guru" is a Sanskrit word meaning teacher, honoured person, religious person or saint. Sikhism though has a very specific definition of the word Guru. It means the descent of divine guidance to mankind provided through ten Enlightened Masters. This honour of being called a Sikh Guru applies only to the ten Gurus who founded the religion starting with Guru Nanak in 1469 and ending with Guru Gobind Singh in 1708; thereafter it refers to the Sikh Holy Scriptures the Guru Granth Sahib. The divine spirit was passed from one Guru to the next as "The light of a lamp which lights another does not abate. Similarly a spiritual leader and his disciple become equal, Nanak says the truth."
