Vyas Poornima – Guru Purnima

Guru Purnima, also referred as Sage Veda Vyasa Poornima, is celebrated on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashada (July). The day is dedicated to Guru and he/she is honored and given due respect. Sage Vyasa is considered the Adi Guru or the first Guru in Hinduism and therefore the day is also known as Vyas Poornima. In 2018, the date of Guru Purnima is July 27.
The Guru Gita in the Skanda Purana hails guru in this famous verse: Guru brahma Guru vishnu Gururdevo Maheshwaraha
Guruhu sakshaat Parambrahman tasmai Shrigurave namaha ‘Guru is Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva,
Veneration to the Guru who has manifested as Parabrahman.’ While venerating the Guru we must also be cautious as the world today is filled with fake gurus and swamis – who make a living out of spirituality.
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa says about true guru like this He alone is the true teacher who is illumined by the light of true knowledge. Bees come of themselves to the full-blown flower when the breeze wafts its fragranc…

Thoughts on Guru Purnima from Hindu Blog

Human beings or animals or birds or any other living being or whatever thing in the universe that removes ignorance and ushers in the light of self realization is Guru.

True Guru never puts the blame to your problems on astrology or bad luck or enemies.

True Guru never advertises.
Blessing of a Guru is not a substitute to hard work. 
The greatest Guru is Bhagavan Sri Krishna. He did not perform a single mira…

Selflessness is the quality of all heroes

Selflessness is the quality of all heroes.

Accidents happen due to a higher plan. But what we often see around us are not divine accidents but mistakes – result of ignorance of human beings in the form of anger, desire, avarice and selfishness.

Insecurity takes the life out of any relationship.

An insecure person makes his/her life a hell and it affects those around.
Without enthusiasm it is impossible to acquire any kind of knowledge.
