Must read

INDIA: Guru Purnima is celebrated each year on the full moon day of Ashadha month; this day is entirely dedicated to the ‘Guru’s’ (teachers). In honour to recognise the importance of a teacher in one’s life, this day is celebrated. Guru Purnima is an Indian and Nepalese festival. Hindus, Jains and Buddhists typically cherish the Guru Purnima festival.

The word Guru has a Sanskrit significance- ‘gu’ means darkness or ignorance, and ‘ru’ denotes the remover of that darkness. Hence, a teacher removes darkness from a student’s life and makes them capable enough to face the world. Knowledge has the ability to change the world, and this ability comes from a tutor.

The Purnima Tithi (exact timing) is about to happen from 4:00 am July 13 till 12:06 am July 14. 

Importance of Guru in one’s life 

A teacher is a pioneer in every student’s life, whether the parents or a mentor. Everyone needs a person who can guide and teach the essential lessons of life. The apex school of learning comes first from parents and then transferred to a teacher. Knowledge without guidance is like a way without direction.
