23rd July Guru Purnima


The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh of the Hindu calendar is traditionally
celebrated as Guru Purnima by Hindus. On this day, devotees offer puja (worship) to their
Guru.
The relationship between the Guru and the Disciple is considered very sacred. This
relationship is purely spiritual in nature and is independent of age of the two. It is based on
maturity of Gyan (Spiritual Knowledge) and Sadhana (Spiritual Practice). The only
awareness that a Disciple should foster is, I should be uplifted spiritually. The Guru too
harbours only one thought, May this Disciple be uplifted. Relationships other than GuruDisciple are bound by worldly restrictions wherein the ego constantly manifests itself while
Gyan and other Sadhna have no value. Since these worldly relationships presuppose ego for
their sustenance, such relationships are albeit false on the spiritual level.
