In this whole world each and every human being is thought by someone that’s we call-“Teacher”. Mother is known as first teacher of a child from his/her birth. She teach child about the social things like how to eat, how to talk and how to respect others etc. but after a comfortable age child need behavioral and cultural knowledge to grow-up in this world . For that kind of knowledge he /she need a teacher – person who shows the path of success. It is said in hindu culture that:

“Grur Bramaah – Gurur Vishnuh – Gurur Devo Maheshwarah |
Gurur Saakshaat – Param Brahma -tasmai Shri Gurave Namah ||”


This line could be listening at any kind of holy prayer of Hindus in respect of “Guru”. In Hindu culture Guru Purnima is the festival which celebrated across the country in the memories of great santh “Maharshi Ved Vyasa “, who compiled four Holy Vedas ,wrote 18 Puranas, the mahabharat and Srimad Bhagavata.

A guru can teach anything like dance, songs, singing, lessons of study, any thing which can be learned … A guru can teach. So guru Purnima is also famous as “Vyasa– Purnima”. Day of full moon of month Ashad (July – August) is celebrated as guru purnima.

Guru is worshipped and respected same as God. All the initiation of god over earth cant leads to historical signature on the people without Guru- Gyan . Would it be Krishna or Ram they make his lifestyle to be remembered and adopted by followers due to only the knowledge that they get from their Guru’s. Many people in real world get success by following the advice and path of their teacher or gurus.

This day is very special for sants and sadhus. It is celebrated at various Ashrams and at Shivananda on grand level in Rishikesh. Special kind of puja and worship of “Vyasa” is organized by the Devotees and Sadhak.

At traditional rural areas a get together is arranged with small dinner and cultural program (Bhajan Gayan) by local person like farmer and workers. A professional person also goes to their guru or teacher with some kind of gift. It brings more light and success in their life they think.
