Guru Purnima when the energy in and around us is most elated and helps in ascending our chakras naturally, the seekers honor their GURU as the “dispeller of darkness” (GU means “darkness” and RU means “dispel”).
It is because of the previous lives good deeds, thoughts, dhaana and dharma performed by us (souls) that we get connected to a genuine Guru in this life. So it will be in our next lives. Without penance and pujas of some sort, the connection with a Guru is not possible. It is said, that if our yearning for Divine is sincere and truthful, Divine Itself will appear as Guru to us. A true Divine Guru provides experiential teachings and enables a seeker to connect with Divine through knowledge and understanding of true purpose of this Earthly life. Only a true Guru can help a spiritual seeker break karmic patterns and thought processes, and thus open the absolute bliss of an open heart. A true Guru shows us the spiritual beings experiencing human life a true understanding of this reality. The goal is to raise our consciousness to the blissful truth, beyond the illusions of material life and free ourselves of karmic patterns and physical bondage.
Blessed are the souls who have found a true Guru in
one’s lifetime. A True Guru is one who possesses the ocean of knowledge, and
hence can show disciples the knowledge of the Self (Atma Gnyaana). Guru
Purnima offers us a chance to honor this incredible blessing and opportunity.
