Stock Market Gurus

Om Gurubyo Namaha

I Salute to Guru

Who are Stock Market Gurus?

Gurus in the Stock Market are those who can lead you to a better path, shorter path and an easier path in stock trading. They take you from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge and from death to life.

Just like any word which enters from one language to the other, the word Guru also has lost its original Sanskrit meaning. Guru is a Sanskrit term for 'teacher' or 'master'. As a noun the word means the imparter of knowledge. As an adjective, it means 'heavy,' or 'weighty,' in the sense of 'heavy with knowledge'.

Sanskrit 'guru' is cognate with Latin word 'gravis' meaning heavy, grave, weighty, serious and Greek word 'barus' meaning heavy.

The syllable GU means shadows or darkness and the syllable RU means light or he who disperses them.

Thomas A. Forsthoefel, Cynthia Ann Humes in their book Gurus in America (2005) states that, 'In the United States, the meaning of "guru" has been used to cover anyone who acquires followers, especially by exploiting their naivete, due to the inflationary use of the term in new religious movements'.

One should find a guru who can impart transcendental knowledge. Guru has the most venerable influences on an individual, next only to parents.

Acquire the transcendental knowledge from a Self-realized master by humble reverence, by sincere inquiry, and by service. The wise ones who have realized the Truth will impart the Knowledge to you.-- Bhagavad Gita

Knowledge is given out


one to other


other to many


many to all

In Indian culture, a person without a guru or a teacher (acharya) was once looked down on as an orphan or unfortunate one. Some scriptures and gurus have warned against false teachers, and have recommended that a knowledge seeker should test the guru before accepting him. Some have given criteria on how to distinguish false from genuine ones.

What are the characteristics of a Stock Market Guru?

Some scriptures and gurus have warned against false teachers, and have recommended that the spiritual seeker test the guru before accepting him. Some have given criteria on how to distinguish false from genuine ones.

In the presence of the satguru - Knowledge flourishes (Gyana raksha), Sorrow diminishes (Dukha kshaya), Joy wells up without any reason (Sukha aavirbhava), Abundance dawns (Samriddhi), All talents manifest (Sarva samvardhan).

Stock Market Gurus should be able to increase your stock trading knowledge, reduce your sorrow by reducing your losses, increase your joy because you are able to trade better, you feel abundant because you are becoming richer with knowledge as well as money and you get all talents to become progressively successful, consistently profiting stock trader.

Many misname a great investor as a Stock Market Guru. A stock trading guru is not a theoretical person. He is in the market doing regular trading. He knows the in and out of the market. He knows clearly which market to trade; When to enter a trade; when to get out of the trade with profit; when to get out of the market if it goes against our consensus and how to manage the money. Above all he is willing and knows to transfer this knowledge to the one in need.

A Guru in the Stock Market might have learned from some other Guru. But he will have a personal practical experience in the field. Everyone of us has to have some guru to learn what we have learned today.

Will you learn swimming from a coach who is not ready to get in to water? There are so called Stock Market Gurus who themselves are not trading, but ready to teach others.

I owe a lot to these market masters. Because of these stock market teachers I have gained a lot of knowledge, made money and made my life & trading easier.

From some Gurus I have learned the right things to do in stock trading. From some Gurus I have learned what I should not do in stock trading. Some Gurus have inspired me to become like them.

I take this opportunity to salute all the Stock Market Gurus, their Gurus, their Gurus and ultimately I salute the ultimate Guru of all Gurus, The Infinite Intelligence.

Here I have listed a few of them, whose books I have read or whose courses I have studied or whose strategies I have followed.

There are many more stock market teachers, whom I have not listed here but have learned from them. I salute them one and all.
