Guru Purnima is one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on Purnima (full moon day) in the month of Ashadha. Much like 5th September, which is marked as World Teacher’s Day, Guru Purnima too is celebrated to pay gratitude to our teachers, known as ‘Guru’ in Sanskrit. The Sanskrit word literally translates to ‘one who removes ignorance’. The guest of the day Sri. Sundarnithyananda Das from ISKCON enlightened the students on the significance of Guru Purnima.
