Guru Purnima 2024
Guru Purnima, also known as Vyasa Purnima, because of the birth anniversary of Ved Vyasa, is celebrated by the Hindus and the Buddhists. On this auspicious day the Buddhists honour Lord Buddha who had given his first sermon at Sarnath. The Hindus, however, mark the importance of this day by honouring the wise sage Vyasa as per the ancient Hindu traditions. The significance of Guru Purnima lies in the belief that the study of the scriptures commenced on this day.
Vyas Purnima is celebrated with great fanfare and devotion at various places, including the temple of Satya Sai Baba in Shirdi. The story of the life of Sage Ved Vyasa, along with famous quotes from the religious scriptures, is narrated in various cultural gatherings, where devotees and disciples gather to pay homage to the great life.
