Why Is Everyone Talking About List Of Hindu Guru's And Santh's?

This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by adding missing items with reliable sources.

This is a list of religious people in Hinduism, including guru's, santh's, monks, yogis and spiritual masters. A guru is defined as a "teacher, spiritual guide, godman," by author David Smith. To obtain the title of guru, one must go through a standard initiation process referred to as Diksha, in which they receive a mantra or sacred Sanskrit phrase.
