Guru Purnima is the annual spiritual celebration in honor of the Tradition. It is celebrated on the full moon, this year, the second full moon, in July. Guru, in Sanskrit, means “that which dispels the darkness of ignorance.” The Guru, the teacher – both inner and outer – is acknowledged and honored on this day, the full moon, when the force of illumination is manifest a thousand-fold.
Guru Purnima is the day when students come to their teachers to refresh and rejuvenate their spirits and to receive further instructions for their spiritual journey. It is also a reunion – a time for teachers, students, and like-minded people to connect, share, and prosper.
The most auspicious day of the year for teachers and students, it is no coincidence that Guru Purnima marks the beginning of the powerful seminar and retreat, The Power of Mantra & The Mystery of Initiation study intensive followed by Charge Yourself with the Power of Practice practice intensive.
