Meaning of Vaheguroo

I went to sangat today, lots of Simran and lots of fun! It just reminded me of one of Bhai Gurdaas Jee's Vaars (1) where he expains one meaning of the word "Vaheguroo"

In Satyug, Visnu in the form of Vasudev is said to have incarnated and ‘V’ Of Vahiguru reminds of Visnu.
The true Guru of dvapar is said to be Harikrsna and ‘H’ of Vahiguru reminds of Hari.
In the treta was Ram and ‘R’ of Vahiguru tells that rembering Ram will produce joy and happiness.
In kalijug, Gobind is in the form of Nanak and ‘G’ of Vahiguru gets Govind recited.
The recitations of all the four ages subsume in Panchayan i.e. in the soul of the common man.
When joining four letters Vahiguru is remembered,
The jiv merges again in its origin.



It's another amazing example where its shown that "Ik Onkaar", that God is one, is true. But it also shows that all the "gods" that exist, all the prophets throughout the ages are all one and part of the same primal soul, Paramathma.
