GURU PURNIMA ON 5TH JULY 2020

GURU PURNIMA – GURU A MOST REVERED ONE WHO REMOVES DARKNESS FROM OUR MIDST

OUR GURU THE REVERED ONE WHO HELPS US REMOVE IGNORANCE AND INSTILLS ENLIGHTENMENT THROUGH HIS PREACHING


It is the day, so sacred, dedicated
To the Gurus or teachers or preachers
Who act as a vehicle of change for us
Firstly Guru enters our psyche
Then thoroughly understands
Our potentials and weaker areas
Thence through suggestions
And enlightened guidance
Makes amendments required
For effecting changes
With heavy dose of love and affection

After guidance so galore
At every step in our lives
The Guru controls the oars of our boat
And steers clear our boat
And save us from the storm
Which may come without prior warning.

When we are utterly confused
When there is no way out
When everywhere we see dark clouds
When we’re in the state of immobility
When we need somebody
Who could provide us mobility
And thus remove the inertia
From our midst
And help us
Acquire self-realisation
Who can this bestow us guidance
Except our venerable Guru.
Guru, with two syllables
Gu and Ru
Guru stands for darkness or ignorance
Ru means remover of darkness or ignorance
Thus Guru is the One
Who helps us remove ignorance
And darkness that pervades in us

From our midst
And bestows enlightenment
He has the ocean of knowledge (Gyan)
Acquired through severe penance
For days, months and years on ends
Thru a lot of perseverance
From whom even a drop of water
From His reservoir
Can change our destiny
Thus enlivening our lives

And makes it more purposeful
Guru thus could be termed as a spiritual preacher
Who possesses awareness of highest order
Acquired with focused meditation and prayers
Guru is a true Karma Yogi
Based and got purely on the principles of Karma Yoga
Thus earned for Himself the category of most evolved
And enlightened soul
The Guru transfers the knowhow
Either through Yogic postures
Or through spiritual teachings

Provide us guidance
While we are engulfed
In sorrow and discontent or discomfort
By infusing spiritual longings of highest order
Along with making their disciples aware
About eternal reality or truth about God.

THE FIRST GREAT GURU WHO IS THE EMBODIMENT OF SIMPLICITY AND PURITY


On this day Lord Shiva
Termed as the Adiyogi or First Guru
The first Guru of great repute
Who transferred the Mantra
To Saptarishis – the seven Rishis
Which became the seven basic forms of Yoga of a Yogi.

A MOST REVERED GURU WHO MADE THE TRANSFORMATION OF OUR LIVES THROUGH FOLLOWING PRACTICAL DHARMA WITHOUT RITUALS


Guru Nanak Dev Ji is most revered one
Who transformed the thoughts and actions
Of the multitudes by His preaching
His beliefs and teachings
Given in Sri Granth Sahib Ji obviously
Touch our heart, mind and soul immensely.

VED VYASA – A GREAT GURU WHO PENNED DOWN THE GREAT EPIC MAHABHARTA


The Sage Ved Vyasa
Was the greatest of all Gurus
Who had penned the great epic Mahabharta
Was not only born on this day
But also started writing Brahma Sutra on this day
Recitation of which is also done on this day
That is the why
This day is also called as Vyasa Purnima too.
The Buddhists celebrate this day
And remember Lord Buddha
For his teachings.
The Jains celebrate this day

And remember Lord Mahavira
For enlightening them
With his teachings.
This festival is celebrated
On the full moon day (Purnima)
In the month of June-July (Ashadha)
On this day we offer special prayers to our Guru Ji
And thank him
For enriching our life
By making us aware about the essence of life
By whispering in our ears the Mantra
The most appropriate one
Reciting of which

Makes us turn inwards.
On this day, people celebrate this day as teacher’s day
The students thank them for removing ignorance from their midst
This helps in consolidating their bond of relationship.
On this day the students organize
Various competitions by reciting poetry and hold debates
Finally show their sincere gratitude to their teachers.
We know Acharya Chanakya
The all encompassing Guru of King Chandergupt Mauriya
The renowned author of Arthashastra
Who with his wisdom changed the rulers so tyrannical
With his philosophy and sagacity.

As the parents are the first Gurus
For the children
Because of their guidance
Thus they show their special respect
And thank them for what they have done for them
Without which they could not have moved any further

My own Guru NANGLI NIWASI
The most revered one
Had changed my outlook on life
By infusing self-belief in me
By whispering a Beej Mantra
The most suitable for me
The recitation of which makes me feel elated
By engendering warmth in my heart
With which I cultivate empathy
Along with deepest understanding
Of others’ needs
And pains

Which others experience.

REMOVAL OF DARKNESS BY OUR REVERED GURU & DAWN OF NEW HORIZON OF CHANGE


The One Guru
The most renowned One
Who has infused enlightenment
Through His teaching and preaching

The Autography of a Yogi
Has obviously changed many a lives
For it is a treasure house of knowledge

Thence there are umpteenth of Gurus
But the best one is the One

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
