Happy Guru Purnima-ISM UNIV

Guru Purnima is the day the first guru was born. In the yogic culture, Shiva is not seen as a god, he is seen as the Adiyogi, or the first yogi. Guru Purnima is that full moon day when the first yogi transformed himself into the Adi Guru – the first guru.

Every year, we celebrate Guru Purnima to pay respect to all of the world’s gurus or teachers and to express our gratitude towards them. By paying homage to his spiritual mentor Shrimad Rajchandra, Mahatma Gandhi resurrected the festival in India. However, Legends say that Ved Vyasa, the sage who penned the famous Hindu epic Mahabharata, was born on this day to parents Satyavati and Sage Parashar. According to mythology, scholar Ved Vyasa divided the Vedas into four different texts: the Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda, and Atharva Veda, which is why Guru Purnima is observed on this day.
