Guru Purnima Detail
2017 Guru Purnima Calendar: 07/08/2017
Origin:
The full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashad (July-August) is observed as the auspicious day of Guru Purnima, a day sacred to the memory of the great sage Vyasa. All Hindus are indebted to this ancient saint who edited the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata. Vyasa even taught Dattatreya, who is regarded as the Guru of Gurus. The Sanskrit root "Gu" means darkness or ignorance. "Ru" denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes darkness of our ignorance is a Guru. Only he who removes our ultimate darkness, known as Maya, and who inspires and guides us on to the path of God-realization is the true Guru.

According to both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, Guru Puja or Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day of the lunar month of Ashadha, which corresponds to June-July of the Roman calendar.

Guru Purnima is an Hindu festival dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers. This festival traditionally celebrated by Hindus and Buddhists, to thank their teachers. It is marked by ritualistic respect to the Guru, Guru Puja. The Guru Principle is a thousand times more active on the day of Gurupournima than on any other day.
Detail:
Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day of Ashadha and the four month period of Chaturmas. Guru Purnima is a day of renewing our faith, our shraddha, in He who bestows the light upon our lives. It is a day of re-opening our hearts, our souls and our lives to His divine presence and letting it penetrate and saturate every aspect of our being.

In Srila Vyasa's childhood he was called Krishna, because of his dark complexion, and because he was born on an island at the confluence of the Sati and Mati Rivers he was called Dwaipayana. After dividing the Vedas he got the name Veda Vyasa. Srila Vyasa's appearance was on the twelfth day of the light fortnight in the month of Vaishaka (April-May), called Vasant Dwadashi. Recorded is another instance when Srila Vyasa called for Ganesha to write the Mahabharata as he related it to him. Ganesha did so on the condition that Srila Vyasa continually recited. The word "Vyasa" means one who describes elaborately.



Tradition:
raditionally the festival is celebrated by Buddhists in honour of the lord Buddha who gave His first sermon on this day at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh, India. Hindus celebrate it in honour of the great sage Vyasa, who is seen as one of the greatest gurus in ancient Hindu traditions and a symbol of the Guru-shishya tradition. Vyasa was not only believed to have been born on this day, but also to have started writing the Brahma Sutras on ashadha sudha padyami, which ends on this day. Their recitations are a dedication to him, and are organised on this day, which is also known as Vyasa Purnima.
