Guru Poornima is one of our most celebrated festivals where the day is spent in meditation and reverence for Babaji. All are welcome to get Babaji’s and Guruji’s blessings on this day.
Guru Poornima is festival dedicated to spiritual and academic Gurus. This festival is traditionally celebrated to pay their respect to their Gurus and express their gratitude. The word “Guru” has its roots in the Sanskrit language, where “gu” means darkness and “ru” stands for the removal of darkness. A Guru is one who removes the darkness of our ignorance.
Hence, it becomes only understandable for an entire pay to be bestowed upon the teachers who illuminate our lives with the light of knowledge and wisdom. The meditators practice mediation on this day under the guidance of their Guru’s. The day of Guru Poornima is considered auspicious for those who are willing to give a start to a spiritual learning of any kind.
