Guru and Guru Purnima – The identity of Indian civilization

Guru Tradition of Bharat

Guru Purnima is a day when we pay obeisance to the lifeline of this great, unbroken civilization of India -the guru-sisya-parampara or mentor-protege lineage.

 India achieved excellence in every field of endeavour because of the Science of Self Management kept alive by the unbroken chain of teacher and student. The word ‘guru’ means ‘one who dispels darkness’. The guru removes the pandemic ignorance that is prevalent and gives us the light of knowledge. Knowledge of who we are, how to relate with the world and achieve true success. Most importantly, how to transcend the world and reach the abode of infinite Bliss which is the hallmark of excellence.
