The Day :
On a day when the Hindu Community celebrates its revered spiritual, educational and inspirational leaders we pay homage to the importance of the day. We aim to learn, understand and appreciate the value the day of Guru Purnima brings.
The Ethos :
The day traditionally falls within the month of Ashadh (July-August). Hindus refer to this day as Guru Purnima, (Sometimes also called Vyasa Purnima). On this day, devotees offer puja (worship) to their Guru. Guru Purnima acknowledges the might of ones teacher or Guru through respect and reverence. The occasion is celebrated in memory of the great sage Vyasa whom it is believed was born on this day.
