Background on Guru Purnima:
Guru Purnima is one of the most important religious festivals in the Hindu religion. It is an auspicious day for Hindus which is celebrated on the full moon day of Ashad (July-August) month according to Hindu calendar. It is a special occasion to worship one’s gurus for providing knowledge and guidance to light from darkness (ignorance). It is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Guru Vyasa who is regarded as one of the greatest saints of ancient India. He has edited four Vedas, wrote 18 puranas, the Mahabharata, and Srimad Bhagavata in his lifetime.
