Guru Purnima Festival 2012

Guru Purnima 2012

‘Guru Purnima’ Festival of Shirdi Sai Baba will be celebrated for 3 days from 2nd July (Monday) to 4th July (Wednesday). Guru Purnima is on 3rd July 2012 (Tuesday).

It falls on the day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh (June–July) of the Shaka Samvat, Indian national calendar and Hindu calendar. Traditionally the festival is celebrated by Buddhists in the honor the lord Buddha who gave His first sermon on this day at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh, India. While Hindus celebrate it in the honour of the great sage Vyasa, who is seen as one of the greatest gurus in ancient Hindu traditions, and a symbol of the Guru-shishya tradition.

On this day, disciples offer puja (worship) or pay respect to their Guru (Spiritual Guide).
