Guru Purnima – Full Moon in Sagittarius
Each year in July, when the moon is full in the Sagittarius constellation is a very auspicious day in the Vedic Calendar. This day is called Guru Purnima. Guru Purnima is one of the most important celebrations of the year in India.
What is a Guru?
A Guru is not always a person. It is people, events, experiences that serve us in the highest sense. Guru removes darkness from our life and helps us wake up to the truth of our nature. That we are all connected at a cellular level, that we are love, that we are light. Guru is that which makes us evolve, expand, and grow.
Guru shows you possibilities for your life that you never even knew existed.
What in your life has helped you learn compassion, selflessness, forgiveness, surrender?
This is Guru.
Today we stand with full hearts in deep gratitude to Guru. We would not be who we are or where we are were it not for all of the teachers in our lives that have blessed us with grace, wisdom, truth, discipline and love. Guru is wisdom and humility.
When I think of my teachers – my ancestors, my life experiences, my parents, my spiritual guru – It brings up so much reverence that I am filled with joy and gratitude.
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Today I will let go of all that is no longer serving me and I will let my heart be filled with gratitude.
