For Kaliyuga, Lord Shiva has appointed 12 great gurus each for 500 years. Which will keep repeating till the arrival of Satyuga.
- Therefore, henceforward twelve Great Souls shall uphold My Law upon Earth. Their noble names which are forever established among the Stars are: Duravasa, Dharmakunda, Satyapati, Mahakala, Adinatha (Vrishabhanatha), Ramanatha (the Buddha's Guru), Jaleshvara, Svacchanda, Shambhunatha, Guptanatha, Soma-Natha, and Siddhanatha. They are Rays of My Own Light. Shining from the Land of Glory they illumine the World. Verily, for five hundred years each they shall proclaim My Word in this World and beyond. Thus six thousand years shall pass; and when they have passed away, twelve more Masters shall descend into the World. When seventy- two such cycles (of 6,000 years each) have passed, I Myself shall return to Earth, but not before.

Current great Guru is Soma Nath but I am unable to get any information about him as this is 5112th year of Kaliyuga. Can anyone find something about him, any information from scriptures?
- These names might be the name of the post.
- Among them ShambhunAth was the Guru of great Kashmiri Shaiva AchArya Abhinavgupta, whereas Ramnath was Ramputra, one of the Guru of Gautam Buddha.
