Gurur Sakshaat Parabrahmaam Tasmai Sri Gurave Namah
The spirit of Guru Purnima is so simple, yet so weighty. We honor and remember those who have taught us, journeyed alongside us, as we evolve into more complete human beings. It’s the big things, the small things, and everything in between that they bring into our lives. They:
- Encourage us to embrace our true selves
- Teach us the values of integrity and honesty
- Teach us to receive and give openly
- Teach us to be more compassionate, more empathetic, more kind, more human
In essence, they lead us on a journey of discovery to become better versions of ourselves. We would be lost without their encouragement and support, without them knowing when to hold our hands and let them go just at the right times.
My love and namaskarams to my gurus on this Guru Purnima day.
