The word Guru is based on two syllables Gu (darkness) and Ru (remover).  Thus, Guru is the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance.

Armed with complete theoretical knowledge of the scriptures, a Guru is able to teach us the nature of God, nature of the world (maya), the true nature of the soul, the ultimate aim of our life, and how to achieve that goal.

It is essential for a Guru to have a practical experience of the Divine for only then he is also able to prescribe a spiritual practice that we must follow to achieve our goal.
