Guru Purnima being celebrated across country

Today on the occasion of Guru Purnima, thousands of devotees express their gratitude towards their gurus for enlightenment.

A guru is considered to be the person who removes all darkness from our lives and brings light.

It is believed that Lord Buddha had given his first sermon on this day. After achieving enlightenment under the bodhi tree, he had travelled to Sarnath from Bodhgaya and had given his sermon on the full moon day. Thus, his followers worship him on this day.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended greetings to everyone on the occasion of Guru Purnima.

In a tweet, he said “Ours is a society that holds teachers in very high esteem. We thank our teachers, who always inspire and bring out the best in us.”
