“ Guru is Inspiration, Guru is Aspiration”
Purnima is one such day when the Guru or the teacher is worshipped for the work they have done for their disciples. Every year in the month of Ashadh this festival is celebrated. It is actually a combination of two Sanskrit words “Gu” and “Ru”. “Gu” in Sanskrit means ignorance or darkness and “Ru” means the remover of the darkness. Basically, the person who is responsible for removing the darkness is known as Guru.
They have had a special place in the lives of their followers since ancient times.
All the holy books of Hinduism dictate the importance of Gurus and the extraordinary bond between a Guru and his Shishya (disciple). An age-old Sanskrit phrase 'Mata Pitah Guru Daivam', says that the first place is reserved for the mother, second for the father, third for Guru, and fourth for God. Thus, teachers have been given a higher place than Gods in Hindu tradition.
The path of life has many upsides and downs and it is always very uncertain what will happen next. That is why we need 'Gurus' to lead us on the correct path!
Hence, Guru Purnima is celebrated to acknowledge the contribution of the teachers. So, who Is the first and the most important teacher in everyone's life? It is their very own mother. Mother is the first and best teacher. It is rightly said that - "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world “. It is the mother who sees the first smile on the lips of the child and makes it a permanent one with her teaching.
Gajera International School Celebrated Virtual Guru Purnima on Friday. The day started with an interesting storytelling Session to educate the kids about Guru Purnima.
The educators explained the importance of guru in life and how their guru taught them the positive importance of technology throughout the drama. During the situation, they cannot come to School for guru puja so they worshipped their parents.
There was the sweet and touching moment when all the kids made greeting cards for their mothers, their first guru in life who taught them all good things. Each card had " My Guru" written on the top. Inside the card, the kids were instructed to draw and color anything to express themselves freely.
