Guru Purnima falls on the full moon day in the month of Ashad (July-August). This is considered a very sacred and auspicious day by devotees.
On this day, all teachers are venerated. A teacher is one who dispels ignorance and instils the light of knowledge within us. This applies to all teachers, be it a music or art teacher, a school teacher or even a lecturer as well as our spiritual teachers.
On this special day, learners pay homage to their Gurus by offering gifts (Guru Dakshina) and promising anew to put into practise that which their Guru has taught them.
Learners should make a point of visiting their teachers on this auspicious day.
