May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
Dear Friends,

My mother took her last breath a few minutes after I arrived in her room in New Delhi. It is a full moon night here. Today is also Guru Purnima. It is the holiest of days in our tradition, the day everyone salutes and pays respect to their guru.

All my love,


May Deepak and his family be surrounded with healing comforting love and peace.

God Bless,

Celebrating the Guru
Hindus attach paramount importance to spiritual gurus. Gurus are often equated with God and always regarded as a link between the individual and the Immortal. Just as the moon shines by reflecting the light of the sun, and glorifies it, all disciples can dazzle like the moon by gaining from their Gurus.

What is Guru Purnima?
The full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashad (July-August) is observed as the auspicious day of Guru Purnima, a day sacred to the memory of the great sage Vyasa. All Hindus are indebted to this ancient saint who edited the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata. Vyasa even taught Dattatreya, who is regarded as the Guru of Gurus.

Significance of Guru Purnima
On this day, all spiritual aspirants and devotees worship Vyasa in honor of his divine personage and all disciples perform a 'puja' of their respective spiritual preceptor or 'Gurudevs'.

This year, it was celebrated on Thursday, July 21.
