Mumbai – The ‘Guru-disciple tradition’ in Indian culture is a unique gift given by Hindu Dharma to the human race. When the Nation and Dharma face perils, this ‘Guru-disciple’ tradition has achieved the mission to re-establish Dharma. On the occasion of Gurupurnima, it is necessary to remember this great ‘Guru-disciple Tradition’. To ensure that the benefit of the Guru Principle, which is active one thousand times on Gurupurnima is obtained by all, and they can offer gratitude unto Guru, ‘Gurupurnima Festival’ is organised jointly every year by Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti throughout the country. This year, the festival will be celebrated online on the auspicious day of Gurupurnima on 5th July 2020, as per the directives of the Government.

The ‘Online Gurupurnima festival’ will be telecast in the evening of 5th July in 11 languages – English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Bengali, Oriya, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam. Sanatan Sanstha appeals that everybody should accrue the benefit from these festivals. The festival includes Shri Vyasa-pujan, Shri Guru-pujan, alongwith invaluable guidance on spiritual practice and ‘Duties of Hindus during the adverse times and establishing Dharma-based ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’.

Guru is sagun (Materialised) form of nirgun (Non-materialised) God. Only because of Guru’s grace, a disciple gets liberated from the cycle of birth and death and attains Moksha. To get bestowed with such Guru in our life, the spiritual practice needs to be performed with the intense yearning. Guidance on this topic will be given at this festival. To acquire the Divine strength is the most essential requirement in the present situation of the corona pandemic. Therefore, by participating in the festival, you will not only be blessed by Guru but the unity of Hindus will also materialise.
