Gurupurnima

One of the eight Siddha Yoga holidays, Gurupurnima is dedicated to honoring the Guru.

In India, the full moon day (purnima) of the month of Ashada (July – August) is honored as the most auspicious and important of the entire year. This moon's luminous brilliance and perfect form are seen as expressions of the Guru's gift of grace and the attainment of Self-realization.

On Gurupurnima, Siddha Yogis focus on the practice of dakshina and celebrate by coming together for a Celebration Satsang offered in Siddha Yoga ashrams, meditation centers, and chanting and meditation groups.
