Guru Purnima

Guru Purnima is a spiritual Hindu tradition dedicated to spiritual teachers, who are evolved or enlightened humans (such as the Buddha) who are ready to share their wisdom with the world.
They are those people who have changed our path for the better, who have been and continue to be a spiritual light in the material world.

The Guru Principle is said to be a thousand times more active on the day of Guru Purnima than on any other day. The word Guru is derived from two words, gu and ru. The Sanskrit root gu means darkness or ignorance, and ru denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore, a Guru is one who removes the darkness of our ignorance.

The festival is celebrated on the full moon between June-July.

I was deeply influenced by the spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy, who has a statue dedicated to him in Ottawa, Canada.

Who is your favorite teacher?
