Guru Purnima Celebration @GGS
Guru Purnima (Poornima) is the birthday of Ved Vyasa also known as Vyasa Purnima. This is the spiritual tradition in Hindu culture that dedicates itself to the spiritual and academic gurus who developed or enlightened people and are ready to share their knowledge, based on karma yoga, with very little or no monetary expectation. It is a festival, celebrated by the Hindus, Jains and Buddhists in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Traditionally the Hindus, the Buddhists and Jains observe this festival in order to honor and show their appreciation for their chosen spiritual teachers. The Guru Purnima is one of the most auspicious festival and it takes place in the month ‘Ashadha’ on Purnima (full moon-day).
Upon this day, Sage Veda Vyasa and Sage Parashar were born to Satyavati. He is hailed as the author of the Mahabharata, the great Indian epic. He was also a key figure. The wise is known as the embodiment of intelligence and learning. The Vedas is thought to have been listed in four separate texts-Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda. He had four primary followers — Paila, Jaimini, Sumantu and Vaisampayana, and the disciples took his legacy forward. Therefore, Vyasa Puja is performed on Guru Purnima in memory of his contributions.
Today @GGS day started with a beautiful morning online assembly dedicated to all Gurus. The educator's hard work especially during this pandemic was appreciated by the management of the Gajera Trust. As a token of love and gratitude all educators and non-teaching staff received an appreciation frame by our honourable Trustees Shree Chunibhai H. Gajera & Ms. Kinjal Chunibhai Gajera.
