Guru Purnima 2015

Guru Purnima observed at Shanthi Madom Trust, Azhikode (India), 31 July 2015

Sadhu Vinod spoke on the importance of Guru Purnima. The birthday of Veda Vyasa is celebrated as Guru Purnima. It is celebrated to show our love and obeisance to all the Gurus along with Vedavyasa as they lead us on the right path.

Swami Atmachaithanya spoke on why we need a Guru, and what the significance of the Guru is. There is no Higher Deity than the Guru. The Guru is the Lord of the Universe, the Supreme Ultimate Reality, the Sole Master of your Being and all existence.  Swamiji also spoke on how we must practise yoga and pranayama regularly to attain Self Awakening. He specifically highlighted the importance of Yoga as a way of life and asked everyone to spend some time daily to practise yoga. It brings about the union of body, mind and soul and thereby helps in our holistic development. He showered his blessings to all assembled and invited each person to put flowers on Veda Vyasa’s photo to pay tribute to the great Guru.
