Guru Purnima is the festival celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Ashadha (June–July).

It is the anniversary of the first transmission of the yogic sciences. From Shiva to the seven sages. The yogic meaning of this day is to celebrate the human ability to rise beyond his dual human nature. To offer gratitude to Shiva (The divine consciousness) and their Gurus – awakened teachers, transmitting the realization of the Divine to their disciples.

You don’t need to be a yogi or a Hindu to celebrate that day. It is the day of remembering all our teachers. All those who are the sources of our knowledge and understanding. It is about remembering all those who inspired us, helped us to evolve, showed us the direction, gave us the idea, created a safe space for us to learn and discover, helped us to realize our weaknesses, and overcome it.

It is the day of gratitude and humbleness. A reminder that all our success all our great achievements were inspired or supported by someone. That without them we won’t make it where we are today.

Thank you, all great Gurus!
