Guru Poornima/ Vyaassa poojaa 2015

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 31, 2015 in countries of Europe, Africa, all Asian countries including 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 30, 2015  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 30, 2015 evening/ night by those living in India also; but Vyaasa pooja or Guru pooja must be done on July 31, 2015 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. Small offerings out of gratitude may be offered to family preceptors or people who have offered guidance to you in some way in the previous year if you can afford such offerings.

We are planning to do special austerities in this connection, and will pray for Universal Welfare.

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.

Best regards to everyone,

Blessed be.
Pandit R DAKSHINA MOORTHI.
