Guru Purnima (India) [July Full Moon]

This Full Moon is Guru Purnima, a festival traditionally celebrated in India. The word guru is derived from two Sanskrit words, Gu means “ignorance,” Ru means “the remover of ignorance”; thus the one who removes our ignorance is a guru. On this day, followers pay their regards to their guru or spiritual guide, who many believe is a necessary part of their lives. The festival is common to all traditions in Hinduism because it is dedicated to respect for their religious teachers and leaders. Hindus also celebrate it in honor of the great sage Vyasa, who is seen as one of the greatest gurus in ancient Hindu traditions, and floral offerings and symbolic gifts are given away in his name. Vyasa was not only believed to have been born on this day, but also to have started writing Brahma Sutras, a major religious text at this time. Recitations of these sutras, dedicated to him, are organized on this day.

This would be a good day to write a letter to someone who has helped you on your spiritual path, whether or not you call them a guru. If they are no longer alive, write the letter and burn it while thinking about them.
