Guru Purnima Parva Vrat and Muhurta 2019 is from 01:48 AM (July 16, 2019) to 03:08 AM (July 17, 2019).
The full moon of the Shukla Paksha in the month of Ashadh is known by the name of Guru Purnima. This year, Guru Purnima will fall on July 16, 2019. On this day, Guru meaning teacher, the nature of his knowledge and affection are worshiped. Like the full moon, Guru is also full of brightness and illumination through which he attempts to remove the blindness of the apostate disciple surrounded by dark clouds, just like the cloudy weather in Ashadh month. This is how the seeker receives knowledge, peace, devotion and power. In fact, if we learn anything from anyone, they become our Guru and we must respect that person no matter what.
In the Hindu tradition, the guru has got a place ahead of God and Guru Spirit is related to the spirit of the divine. Guru makes a being capable of ending his curiosity. We have capabilities, but the Guru is the power that shows us the direction in life. Being able to see God is possible through a Guru, that's why it has been said that Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru devo Maheshwara, Guru sakshat, param Brahma, tasmai shri guravay namah.
Guru Purnima is also known as Vyaas Purnima, because it is also the birthday of Lord Krishna Dwyapayan Vyas, the creator of Mahabharata. Ved Vyas Ji was a scholar and he had also composed the Vedas, hence he was called by the name of Ved Vyas.
Guru has been called Brahma and Mahadev as he gives his disciple a new birth and forgives all the faults of his disciples. The importance of a master is worthwhile with all sight. For all, the guidance of the guru is very important for spiritual peace, religious knowledge and worldly sustenance. The guru is not just a teacher, but he is also a guide guiding the person's way out of every crisis of life. In simple words the master can be called a cluster of knowledge.
In the scriptures, it is said that guru means to remove the darkness and give the light of knowledge. Guru is going to take us from darkness to light. Many verses have been created in the devotion of the gurus, which are helpful in expressing the meaning of the guru. With Guru'sgrace, listening to God becomes possible and in the absence of the grace of Guru, nothing is possible.
In India, the festival of Guru Purnima is celebrated with great reverence and pomp. This tradition, which has existed since ancient times, reflects the importance of the guru. In ancient times, students used to live and study in the ashram and used to be ever ready to sacrifice anything for their Guru. The example of a disciple like Eklavya became a symbol of respect and unwavering devotion who gave his thumb without second guessing when his Guru asked for it. Even today, the importance of this fact has not diminished. The teacher is honoured by students in schools and educational institutions and many places Puja is done in the temples. Disciples give their Gurus gifts like fruits, clothes, etc.
