Importance of Guru Purnima




Importance of Guru Purnima

The festival of Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Ashadh.  This festival is one of the most auspicious Hindu festivals.  On this day, the disciples express their gratitude to their Guru.  Many beliefs associated with this festival make it special. It is believed that for the first time on this day, Adiyogi Lord Shiva established himself as Adi Guru by giving knowledge of yoga to the Saptarishis.  It is also believed that Maharishi Ved Vyas was also born on this day.  Maharishi Vyasa composed the four Vedas and the Mahabharata.  For this reason his name is also Veda Vyas.  He is called Adiguru and Guru Purnima is known as Vyasa Purnima in his honor. 





It is believed that on this day, Maharishi Ved Vyas first gave the knowledge of Sri Bhagavata Purana to the disciples and sages.  On the full moon of Ashadh month, the disciples of Maharishi Ved Vyas started the tradition of Guru Puja.
It is also believed that Lord Buddha gave his first sermon on this auspicious day.  Hence this date is also known as Buddha Purnima.  On this day, there is a law of Guru Puja . The rainy season starts from Guru Purnima.  For four months from this day, saints and saints stay in one place and shed the Ganges of knowledge.  In Hinduism, the Guru is ranked higher than God.  This day is considered to be welfare for students.

In the Sanatan tradition, the Guru's name comes before God because it is the Guru who gives you the chance to meet with Govind, which explains his meaning.  Just like in life one has to trust the sailor to cross the river, the driver while traveling in the car, the doctor while undergoing treatment, in the same way a Sadhguru is needed to cross the life and when he meet  . we have to believe in life.  This is because even the fire of the Guru does not burn the disciple but serves to show him the right path. If you are thinking of making someone your guru on this Guru Purnima, then think a lot before that because a Guru is created only once in life.  It is not changed frequently.  One should remember this line of Kabir Das ji's couplet before making anyone a guru in the running life.

गुरु कीजिए जानि के, पानी पीजै छानि । बिना विचारे गुरु करे, परे चौरासी खानि॥

That is, the way water should be filtered and drunk, in the same way, after knowing the words and actions of any person, he should become his Guru.  Otherwise he does not get salvation and his movement on this earth remains.  Overall, the Sadhguru should be such that there is no greed in any way and it is free from fascination, confusion and doubt.  Even while living in this world, he should be free from all desires, mischief and ambition.

In Hinduism, both Guru and God have been considered equal.  Guru is like God and God is Guru.  It is the Guru who shows the way to attain God and get out of this world-like ocean.  By following the Guru's path, one attains peace, bliss and salvation.  It is said in the scriptures and the Puranas that if the Lord gets angry with the devotee, then only the Guru tells your protection and remedy.  According to religious belief, the Guru is worshiped on Guru Purnima.  Guru Poornima is very important in the country.  People celebrate Guru Purnima with great enthusiasm and happiness .  India is a country of sages and saints where they are worshiped as much as God.  Maharishi Veda Vyasa was the first scholar to explain the four Vedas of Sanatana Dharma.  And also, Sikhism has been considering only one God and the voice of its ten gurus as the real truth of life. 

Guru Purnima is celebrated as the birth day of Krishna Dwapayana Vyasa, the author of the epic Mahabharata.  Ved Vyas was a great Sanskrit writer.  The author of all 18 Puranas is also considered to be Maharishi Ved Vyasa.  The Vedas are also credited with dividing the Vedas.  For this reason, he was named Ved Vyas.  Therefore Guru Purnima is also known as Vyas Purnima.

Guru Purnima is the day when the first Guru was born.  In Yogic culture, Shiva is not considered a god, he is seen as an Adi Yogi, ie the first Yogi.  Guru Purnima is the full moon day, the day on which the yogi first transformed himself into Adi Guru, that is, the first Guru.

once upon a time.  A thief came to a saint.  He wanted him to be refugees, but did not want to give up their theft.  So, the saint allowed him and said, 'You can steal, but next time you steal, steal with full awareness.'  So, that thief thought that this is very easy, because stealing is my habit, stealing with caution is a big deal.  But it happened that the next time he was ready for the theft, he remembered the saint's point and became aware of his act.  The result was that he could not steal.


The thief thought that the saint's blessings would decrease over time.  But even after the passage of time, when he thought of theft or entered a house for theft, he remembered the voice of the saint and could not steal again.  There is great power in awareness.  It can bring a big change in you.  All mistakes happen in disregard, but in reflexes, no one can be angry, nor can there be any mistake, nor any complaint.  This happens only when your mind has become attached to its conscience, moving away from worldly things and complications.  When we have knowledge of something, then it becomes easy to handle things.  When we understand or know a little about life, it becomes easy to handle things.

When the guru comes into the life of a disciple, then awareness about his supreme reality also increases.  The Guru churns you well, so that you can have all-round development and you can be united with divinity.  The Guru is like a hut when you are surrounded in hot sun or in a severe storm, within which you get relaxed.

The Guru himself is like a light carrying a treasure of knowledge.  For a seeker, Guru is like life force.  Just as a seed first becomes a bud and then a flower, in the same way the Guru also gracefully leads us from ignorance to knowledge.  Being a Guru in life creates a sense of security in us.  Guru is an element, we should not feel Guru on a physical level.
There is a very beautiful story about Saint Kanakadasa, which makes it clear how the Guru's presence in his life should be felt.  Once the guru of Kanakadas gave him and other devotees a banana to break the fast of Ekadashi, on the condition that it be eaten only when no one was watching.  The next day the disciples described ways of eating their bananas.  But Kanakadas returned to the Guru with a banana.  When asked, Kanakdas said that whenever he tried to eat bananas, all the time, every moments and everywhere he felt the presence of his guru and he could not eat bananas. We call this experience a contiguity.  In this state all the sorrows, all the complaints go away and we start our work with full awareness.  With the belief that there is some power, which is taking care of us every time, every moment.  Then the question arises that how do we feel connected with that supreme power?  How can we find those gurus who can make us feel that light?  This question is very difficult to answer.  You have to experience it only through your inner intelligence.
Once, a very knowledgeable and respected teacher came to the Raj Bhavan.  He was also a great speaker.  He was respected by everyone, including the king, but he felt some emptiness and was in search of the Guru.  He was eager to surrender to a guru.  When he was leaving to find his Guru, the king presented him his palanquin.  When he reached his destination, it was revealed that one of the men who carried the sedan was his Guru, whom he was looking for.  His yearning to get the Guru was so much that he himself pulled the Guru to him.


If the yearning to get a Guru has arisen in your mind, then the Guru will come into your life.  If you take one step towards the Guru then the Guru takes a hundred steps towards you.  But the first step has to be taken by the disciple.  The closer you come to your guru, the more you will blossom.  Knowledge, love and newness will continue to grow in you.  There is no floor to this depth.  This is the importance of Guru Purnima, to have a never ending and unconditional relationship with your Guru.
The day of Guru Purnima is known as the biggest event in the spiritual world.  On this day, the two souls of Guru and disciple meet, surrender and immersion.  On this day, the master's aspiration dissolves in the soul of the disciple and the disciple merges in his master's aspiration.  This Mahaparva is less of knowing and understanding, more of being drowned in the ocean of feeling.  This festival is a legend, because the Guru lives in the soul of the disciple.  It is always in the disciple and the disciple has nothing of his own.  He has his own costume, inside, only the Mahachetna of the Guru keeps waving. Sadhguru is not ordinary, he is the power's source of Mahachetna, the fiercest representative of God.  God Himself appoints them and makes their future action plan.  Sadhguru incarnates on earth with the Bhagwat plan and returns to Bhagavat Dham again after completing the work.  Their action plan consists of finding their pupil, building it and then casting it.  They have to do everything according to plan.  They only know what they do and what to do.  His works are very strange - unique and special .  In the normal way, neither can it be understood nor can it be guessed.  Every work of a Guru is unique and wonderful.  His love and bless are extraordinary.  His love makes the disciple sophisticated and makes him worthy of love.  The disciple's veins flow with love.  This is what the Guru wants.  A dedicated disciple has to muster the courage to fulfill the desire of a competent Guru.  He has to go to the Guru's shelter with all his existence in this work.  In every situation, he has to be willing and ready to awareness to face suffering like humiliation, blasphemy, disdain, even death.  If he signs with his life in his death certificate, then only he fulfills the first condition to be able to become the true possessor of his favorite and love.  After this, when the love of the Guru pours on the disciple, grace arises, then the life of the disciple leads to a new birth. The Guru takes pity on those whose mind and body are not fit to hold and receive spiritual powers and give them their worldly splendor;  But those whose condition is worthy of this, they sweep all the rites in the mind of those disciples like dust.  Guru-kripa is a blessing on the disciples.

In order to receive discipleship, we should do their same works with sincerity.  Discipleship comes from Guru remembrance and Guru work.

Why is the rainy season best for Guru Purnima??

All seasons in India have their own importance.  There is a reason why Guru Purnima is celebrated especially during the rainy season.  Because in these four months there is neither excess heat nor excess cold.  This time is favorable and best for study and teaching.  Therefore, the disciples present at Guru's feets choose this time to attain the power of knowledge, peace, devotion and yoga.
