Salutations to Guru, the remover of Darkness

Here is a Thank you note for the Guru, perhaps for all the Gurus, and to the Guru inside on the special occasion of Guru Purnima. Guru Purnima is one of the most auspicious days in the lives of Yogis. Guru Purnima or Vyasa Purnima is celebrated as the day of Gurus, the day to pay our salutations to the Gurus leading us in the path of awareness.

As Yogis, we work on expanding awareness. This is being done through a variety of techniques adapted to different traditions, different people. Our techniques, methods might seem different and shorter milestones too might be different. But the goal of every Yogi in this path of practice is an expansion of consciousness, being aware of the actions, and refining ourselves to become better humans.

This is also the day when we remember those Gurus, the teachers who inspired us in the path of knowledge, who ignited a curiosity in exploring the world outside. There were a few who led us to explore the world inside too. As Yogis, always thankful for what has been given, we offer our respects to all these Gurus, teachers.

There is also a Guru inside us, who often gets neglected. The light, the god within, the “right voice”, which is the real Guru who is found, explored with the help of an external Guru. This is an occasion to introspect about this life of being more aware of actions, keeping the Light inside active, alert, and functioning.
