Happy Guru Purnima

Sunday, July 5, 2020

Hindus around the world are celebrating Guru Purnima today (5th July 2020), a day meant to
commemorate teachers, mentors and guides. Guru Purnima is one of the most auspicious
Hindu festivals and it is celebrated on Purnima
(full moon day) in the month of 'Ashadha'. On this day, disciples remember their guru
(Sanskrit word for teachers) and God and pay their gratitude. This year, incidentally, Lunar
Eclipse (or Chandra Grahan) also falls on the same day, but this Grahan would not be visible
in India.
