July 3, 2023 - On the auspicious occasion of Guru 


The word Guru is the combination of two Sanskrit ords – “Gu” meaning darkness and “Ru” meaning light. A Guru is a spiritual teacher, guide or enlightened master who leads disciples from darkness to light. A fundamental aspect of Hinduism is the Guru-Disciple relationship. The Guru is said to be more important than God. God is always and everywhere, but it is the Guru who opens the Disciple’s eyes to the existence of God. The Guru is the doorway to one’s own experience of the Divine.

Guru Purnima is a day to celebrate the happening of the Guru in our lives. It is a day when disciples offer gifts of gratitude to the Guru and, in return, the Guru liberates them from negative patterns that are blocking their success. For this reason, Guru Purnima is key to achieving higher states of consciousness since lifetimes of negative patterns are dissolved by the Guru.
