Waheguru (Punjabi: ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ, romanized: vāhigurū) refers to the almighty God, the supreme soul, the creator in Sikhism.

The word vāhegurū is traditionally explained as vāh "wondrous" + gu "darkness" + and "light", together said to carry the meaning, "The wondrous Lord who dispels the darkness of ignorance and bestows the light of truth, knowledge and enlightenment".[citation needed]

The word Vāhigurū or Waheguru is also used in Sikhism as a main mantra, called gurmantra or gurmantar.
