Celebrating the Bliss bestowed by Guru

When we are oblivious of the purpose of life and get more and more entangled in various attractions of physical world, we are limited with our senses and our mind cannot comprehend either our purpose or ways to achieve it, hence we live aimlessly until we meet our Guru. Finally the guru defines our path and our life’s purpose. Gratitude is the key to unlocking a more open and rewarding perspective on life. And Guru Purnima is the day to show our gratitude towards our Guru, acknowledge His blessings and reaffirm our loyalty towards him.

Reiterating the gratitude towards H.D.H P.P. Swamiji, students, teachers and all members of AVM family celebrated Gurupurnima on Sunday 21st July 2013. The Morning assembly in the prayer hall was held with the gracious presence of Saints from Haridham. The Head boy of the school, Sachin Verlekar hosted the ceremony of Gurupoojan. After the invocation of God’s blessings and prayer, Vice Head Boy Dhwanit Tamboli and Sports Captain Nirmal Patel offered garlands to the guests. 

Addressing the students, the School Principal Dr Vijay Patel then elucidated need of Guru in one’s life and that Guru is the medium to communicate with God and what should we pray on this auspicious day. It was followed by soul stirring devotional bhajans by school choir group. Then the students offered their prayers and devotion to the Guru marked by Gurupoojan. Thereafter students received blessings of P. Suhrad Swami who gave an insight on importance of this day.

Thus on this auspicious day students realised that ignorance of math, science, history or technology may make life slightly inconvenient but it does not shroud us in darkness. The ignorance which is really dark is always dispelled by Guru in order to make our life peaceful, purposeful, fulfilling and divinely-connected.
