Live from San Mateo, California, USA

Reflect on your growth in the past year

Celebrate the new year for every spiritual seeker

Guru Purnima is a day of reflection; to review on one's credits and debits and look at the balance sheet. It is a day to be grateful for all that we have achieved in the past year, and a day to resolve to do what we are here to do in the coming year. That is the essence of Guru Purnima.

Guru Purnima means honoring and celebrating source and wisdom. When you reflect on your life and honor the wisdom that life has offered you, that is honoring the Guru because the wisdom is the Guru Principle.

Guru Purnima is one of the sacred moments where one feels how blessed one is, how enlightened one is and how fortunate one is. It is a moment where we realize what a big blessing or possibility has been opened up for us on this planet.
