Guru Poornima 2017

Dear All:

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

Guru Poornima is to be observed on July 8, 2017 in countries to the West of Asia (USA, Canada, UK, countries in the African continent, etc.).  Those living in middle-east countries, India, and countries to the east of India must observe this on July 9, 2017.

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].,

Please note that those who do Pournami poojas every month must offer the Devi Pooja on the night of July 8, 2017 throughout the world because for this - the consideration is that Pournami must be operating on the night of the relevant day....for Vyaasa Pooja, the consideration is that Pournami must operate in the morning hours of the day...hence the difference in dates for Guru Pooja for different places.


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.
