July 31st, Guru Poornima

Next full moon is Guru Poornima, falling on July 31st. A revered day in Indian spiritual and religious history where, Buddhists, Hindus and Jains pay their respects and express gratitude to their teachers.

Next few days I will be doing sadhana to prepare for the great day. I request all the spiritual aspirants to spend their time in gratitude and plan for the great day.

Guru Purnima begins a new year for a spiritual seeker. It’s a day when you reflect back and be grateful for all that you have been given and that which you received. It’s a clearing of all the credits and debits from your spiritual account. On this day one should be grateful for what one has achieved in the past and think about what one wants to achieve in the coming year.
Often we ask for small things in life. Our smaller desires anyways get fulfilled. Guru Purnima is the day to ask for whatever you want and it will be bestowed. Ask for the highest! The best desire is to ask for knowledge and freedom. And Guru purnima is the best day to do this!

This first full moon day after the solstice is a time when this planet and all life upon it are most receptive to the cosmic energy and possibilities. The next six months till the winter solstice is the best time to strive for evolving and experiencing the divine possibility that is innate in a human being
