Guru Purnima Blessings

As Chetana reminded me, on this year July 7 is Guru Purnima. The day to take pause and honor the teachers who have inspired our practice by helping us move out of the darkness of our own ignorance and illusion and onto a path of self-realization; reintroducing us to our true selves.

In Hindu tradition, Guru Purnima is always observed on the first full moon in July.

I'm a day late, but I'd like to honor all of the wonderful teachers who have been my guides. Your dedication to the practice is humbling. I will be forever in service to you by passing on the lineage, and practicing and teaching with a pure heart.

With gratitude ~
Guru Govind donu khade, kisko laagu paay,
Balihari Gurudevaki jinhe Govind diyo bataay.
