Guru Poornima July 11/ July 12, 2014

Dear All:

http://www1.sulekha.com/mstore/aumsri/albums/BharathaMatha/Vyasa.jpg

Guru Poornima is an auspicious day when we offer our respects to the Guru Paramparaa - the unbroken line of Gurus beginning from Lord Sadashivaa Himself to our individual Gurus. [Vaishnavas might remember the Guru Parampara beginning from Shriman Naarayanan Himself, followed by Devarishi Narada, and down the lineage to their own Gurus].,

It is to be observed on July 12, 2014 in India, Middle-East (Gulf Countries), Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. Those living in U.S., Canada, and other countries of American continent must observe Guru Poornima vrat on July 11th itself. (Pournami pooja - which is to be done at night - the monthly pooja in Honour of Devi, and the Girivalam around Sacred Hills like Tiruvannamalai on Full Moon nights must be done on July 11th evening/ night by those living in India also; but Vyaasa pooja or Guru pooja must be done on July 12th morning by those living in India).

Sanyaasis of aamnaaya mutts offer Vyaasa pooja on this occasion.  Remembering our mentors whoever guided our lives in ever-so-small ways, or did poojas on our behalf for our welfare with gratitude is the recommended activity today.

We are planning to do special austerities in this connection, and will pray for Universal Welfare (I am not accepting part-sponsorships for this as already one my disciples has made a voluntary offering in this connection and has also requested homam performance which will support the performance).

Those who are initiated into Moola mantras of Shri Veda Vyaasa, Gorakhnaath, Sage Agasthya, Shri Medha Dakshinamoorthi, Shri Hayagreeva, Dattatreya, Hanumaan, Skanda, etc. can meditate on those Gurus with those mantra recitals.  Others may simply remember whomever they consider as their Gurus with devotion and gratitude today.

May Guru's Grace show us the light with which we can trace our way forward in our lives.
