On 31st evening of July we celebrated ‘Guru Poornima’ in a grand manner. It is the day when Sri Vyasa is revered as Guru is known as Guru Poornima day. The word ‘Guru’ has two syllables in which ‘gu’ means darkness or ignorance and ‘ru’ denotes the one who removes it. The Guru provides the light of knowledge that makes a disciple ‘see’ the supreme self. He removes the ignorance caused by ego through the use of medicine called knowledge. Sri Vyasa has done unforgettable service to humanity all time by editing the four Vedas, writing the 18 Puranas, the Mahabarta and Srimad Bhagavata. It is because of Sri Vyasa that our Vedic knowledge survives and importance of guru tradition got established.
On that happiest occasion we initiated our programme by an invocation.
