Gratitude for the Guru

Gurupurnima is the day we venerate our beloved Satguru, Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda. It is a time to come together as a community to shower Guruji with Love and gratitude for all the blessings and guidance He gives us throughout the year.

The aim of the bhakta is to attain the Grace of the Guru, Guru Kripa. With Guru Kripa one is elevated, and obtains all gifts, all accomplishments, all wealth, even liberation.

Did you know?

Gurupurnima was originally celebrated in memory of the great sage Veda Vyasa. He was a Divine Incarnation of the Lord who compiled the four Vedas, wrote the 18 major Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Shreemad Bhagavatam. It was established as a day to venerate the Guru who masterfully guides His devotees to the Lotus Feet of the Lord.

What to Expect

Festivities begin with Guru Puja. Throughout the day, country groups will perform a bhajan stotra: 108 bhajans all dedicated to the Guru. The day ends with Guru Pada Abhishekam and a blessing from Guruji.

Traditionally, Gurupurnima is also a day to offer Dakshina to the Guru for all the gifts He bestows upon us. Dakshina is a financial gift given to a spiritual Master in gratitude for a blessing. It is a voluntary gift and is not required in any way.

Multiply the Blessings

When we offer our love to the Divine, the Divine showers us with blessings. Giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. Giving without expecting anything in return multiplies the blessings even more, especially when you selflessly sponsor an event. Everyone who helps sponsor the event benefits from all the prayers done, even when you are unable to attend!
