Guru Purnima celebrations at Datta Digambara Temple – 2015
Significance Of Guru Purnima
The Full Moon Day in the month of Ashadha is known as Guru Purnima. This sacred day marks the very first transmission of the yogic sciences from Lord Shiva (Adiyogi) to the Saptarishis, the seven celebrated sages. This momentous occasion took place on the banks of the lake Kanti Sarovar, which stands a few kilometers above the Kedarnath Temple in the Himalayas. Thus, the Adiyogi became the Adi Guru or the First Guru on this day. The Saptarishis carried this knowing offered by Adiyogi throughout the world. Even today, every spiritual process on the planet draws from the spine of knowing created by Adiyogi.
Who is this Vyasa?
He is our ancient Guru. Our scripture, Puranas, Mahabharata, Upanishads were given by him. He is the beginner of Guru Purnima tradition. If you sit near any Guru who gives lecture, that seat is called VYASA PEETHA or JNANA PEETHA.
On this Guru Purnima day, all spiritual aspirants and devotees worship Vyasa in honor of his divine personage and all disciples perform a pooja of their respective Guru.This day is of deep significance to the farmers, for it heralds the setting in of the much-needed rains, as the advent of cool showers usher in fresh life in the fields. It is a good time to begin your spiritual lessons. Traditionally, spiritual seekers commence to intensify their spiritual ‘sadhana’ from this day.
The period ‘Chaturmas’ (“four months”) begins from this day.
