Guru Purnima
« on: October 30, 2007, 09:49:12 AM »
Nepal is a very rich country in art and culture. We have more festivals than the days in a year. Guru Purnima is one of the festivals which we celebrate to respect our teachers. We celebrate this festival according to the lunar calendar every year. It is celebrated especially in Nepal and India.

Knowledge, skill attained in various fields of life should not remain in one being. It should be passed down to generations to come. When one passes down what he/she has gained, he/she is known as a ?Guru? which means teacher. He/she does it without greed, keeping in mind that he/she should impart to the mass. When Lord Buddha attained enlightenment, he passed down his teachings-the value of love, humanity and universal peace. In ancient period also, we worshipped our Guru (teacher) as a path finder or as a destiny constructor. Such as Guru Basistha, Dronacharya, Parashuram, Viswamitra also had their legendary values as an ideal Guru. They are also highly worshipped for moral and ethic.

The auspicious day begins first by worshipping Saraswati, goddess of knowledge. Some go to Pashupati temple to offer prayers to lord Shiva and some to Swayambhu to prayers to lord Buddha. We do puja to the books and other related objects and instruments. Then we visit our teachers, offer them sweets, garlands flower and put them Tika, red powder in their forehead. And we also give them some gifts. Teachers also offer students Tika with blessings. In schools and colleges, some organize cultural programs as a thanks giving year long gesture to the teachers. Many entertain teachers on this day.

On this very day both the teachers and students forget their past bad deeds which means if a teacher has scolded his student for his actions, the student forgets it. And if student has disobeyed his teacher, then the student is forgiven. This day remains to be a very auspicious day both for teachers and students.

This day is of deep significance to the farmers, for it heralds the setting in of the much-needed rains, as the advent of cool showers usher in fresh life in the fields. power flush berkshire
