Happy Guru Purnima 2020: Teachers are our guiding angel. They guide us on the right path and therefore it becomes important for us to thank them for their selfless service. Guru Purnima or Guru Poornima is the day that holds special importance in the lives of Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. Celebrated on the full moon day during Ashadha month, Guru Purnima 2020 will take place on July 5 ie today. The word Guru derived its origin from the Sanskrit language where ‘Gu’ means darkness and ‘Ru’ means the removal of darkness. This day marks the birth ceremony of Ved Vyasa, who wrote the holy book Mahabharata. The festival is also celebrated to remember Lord Buddha, who gave his first sermon on this day to Saptarishis (seven sages) at Sarnath in Uttar Pradesh. Not just in India, Guru Purnima is also celebrated in Nepal where students thank their teachers by offering flowers, sweets and hats made out of indigenous fibre.
