The Significance of Guru Purnima


Guru purnima is the new year for the spiritual seeker. It is a day for
reflection on our credits and debits.A day to be grateful for all
that you have achieved in the past and resolving all that you want to
do in the coming years. It is a day to be grateful for all the
blessings and knowledge received and to see how the knowledge has
transformed our life.Realising this and feeling grateful for all that
has come your way – celebrating this and the tradition of Masters who
preserved this knowledge is guru purnima.

The Significance of Guru PurnimaAsk for whatever you want and it will be bestowed. The highest and
 best desire is to ask for knowledge and freedom. Our body has billions
of cells. Each cell has its own life. Many cells are born and are
dying each moment. You are managing an entire township inside your
body. The way there are so many planets moving around the sun, there
are many many cells moving around within you. You are a township, like
a bee hive. There are so many bees that sit in a beehive but there is
only one queen bee. If that queen bee goes away, every other bee, they
all disappear, the entire bee hive disappears. In the same way, in our
body, there is an atom, tiniest of tiny atom, the atma which is
everywhere yet nowhere. That is the queen bee – that is what you are. 
The queen bee, that is what the divine is. The queen bee, that is what
the guru principle is.

Like fatherhood and motherhood, there is guru-hood.We all have to play
guru-hood at least to somebody. We do play. Consciously or
unconsciously you are all guru to somebody. You keep giving advices
and guiding people, giving them loving care.You all do this. Do it
100%, without expecting anything in return: that is living the guru
principle. There is no difference between the divine, the Self and the
guru. They are all one – the queen bee.

Meditation is relaxing, reposing. Think of all the things to be
grateful for and ask what you want for the future and bless everyone.
We receive so many blessings. We should also bless all those who are 
in need.
