Guru Purnima

                                     गुरुर्ब्रह्मा गुरुर्विष्णुर्गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः 
                            गुरुरेव परं ब्रह्म तस्मै श्रीगुरवे नमः ॥१॥                                                               Gurur-Brahmaa  Gurur-Vissnnur-Gururdevo Maheshvarah |
                    Gurure[-I]va Param Brahma Tasmai Shrii-Gurave Namah ||1||

               1.1: The Guru is Brahma, the Guru is Vishnu, the Guru Deva is Maheswara (Shiva),
               1.2: The Guru is Verily the Para-Brahman (Supreme Brahman); Salutations to that                       Guru              
       Today is called   "Guru purnima".This is  celebrated to honor our saints & Rishis  who have taught us Vedas,Upanishads,Puranas & Ithihasas & how to lead a good life, make us realize God through their disciples .They have lead a very simple life.They lived in Asrams with little comfort. In olden days  Kings  admired them, respected them & kept them as "Raja Guru".We all know that King Dasaratha Kept  Sri Vashista  as  his Guru & always sought his  advice in running  the GOVT.

      If we trace  our origin it would be one of our earlier saints.Swami Vivekananda used to address as,"Oh, Children of Rishis".Many foreigners admire & wonder this  system of Guru Parampara.In all Hindu Mutts , all saints observe "Chaturmasya vrata" on this full moon day(coming in the Tamil Month Aadi )& .They observe it for 60 days.After praying to God,they perform "padhuka abishegam & Pooja  ( for Holy feet representing Guru ).Vedha Vyasa compiled all Vedas .Thousands of years ago at the end of Mahabharata war,Kali yuga started.God Krishna Himself in  teaching Arjuna gave us "Bhagavad  Gita ".It is said that "Maha Bharata " was written by Maha Ganapathi as told by Veda Vyasa .Later Adi Sankara came  & established  Mutts ( Sankara Mutts).While  saint Vysa is called  as reincarnation of Lord Vishnu & Sri Adi Sankara as God Shiva.Let us worship these Saints on this  auspicious Day & seek their is better to go to an Asram during this period & participate in the pooja.Thanks to for the Sanskrit Sloka & meaning & also to Dharma Chakram Publication -Sri.Ramakrishna Tapovan- Tirupparaiturai.
