This day holds a significant place in Indian and Nepalese tradition as they thank the ‘GURUs’ in their lives – be it spiritual or academic and even parents. In Nepal, this day is celebrated as the Teachers’ Day. The word ‘guru’ came from the Sanskrit word ‘GU’ which implies darkness and ‘RU’ which means eliminating the darkness.
Guru Purnima celebrates India’s tradition of ‘GURU_SHISHYA’ – a bond that binds a teacher and a student, which has now become a part of India’s culture. But since time immemorial, traditional knowledge and teachings have been pass down from one generation to another through the shrutis and slokas. In ancient India, parents used to send their children to the Gurus.
Those all are Gurus from whom you learn something to lift your life up, those all are Gurus who showed you how to eliminate the darkness, those all are Gurus who teaches you how to be better being. Those all are Gurus who showed you the wings to fly.
I believe, a quick path to find the right Guru in your life is to find the right spiritual friends around you, if you can find those friends around you, you are blessed because your first hard effort has been taken care. As I always mentioned in my precious blogs let’s all push ourself to spend more time with those spiritual friends who helps push you with positivity and inspiration and not let you go down in your effort.
We all have Spiritual friends and Guru’s around us it just that we don’t have that eye to visualize and strength to consider them as Guru’s. Lets all wish that we get those strength and positivity to find one around us from whom you learn and pump the positivity with lots of inspiration.
Some people come in life and make you a better being,
All these people are Gurus who give you wings to fly.
Let's be grateful to the one who made you meet yourself.
Happy Guru Purnima!
