This year this pious day falls on a Friday (July 31) and it is great opportunity for people across religious lines since it can be considered as “Guru Day” or “Thanksgiving” ! Before we proceed let us first try to understand what does word Guru mean, GU means darkness and RU means removal of darkness hence GURU means any person who helps in “removal of darkness” by imparting “Knowledge” . This day is celebrated on Full moon day during the month of Aashad (Sun in Cancer) and its great opportunity to thank everyone who has made difference to your life and imparted “knowledge” in any form. It is also called Vyasa Pūrṇimā (great ancient Rishi),Guru is the one who holds a very significant role throughout one’s life. Guru Ved Vyas has been considered as the biggest and the most knowledgeable Guru of all times. Guru Purnima or Vyasa Purnima is dedicated to Guru Ved Vyas and is celebrated as his birthday. Ved Vyasa is one of the most regarded Gurus.Ved Vyasa was one of those Gurus who classified the Vedas into four different texts. These Vedas in today’s time are known as Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Saam Veda, and Atharva Veda. Ved Vyasa also wrote the “Srimad Bhagwat Geeta”. The teachings in these texts are the biggest offering to the mankind.
Kaartik Gor Consultations recommends reciting below mantra, visiting parents (your first Gurus) and buying a pen or a book on this auspicious day!
गुरुर्ब्रह्मा गुरुर्विष्णुः गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः।
गुरुर्साक्षात् परब्रह्म तस्मै श्री गुरवेनमः॥
Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Lord Maheshwara | Guru is the personification of the supreme power, I bow to the holy Guru in homage ||
If the above mantra is too complicated for you a simple mantra like Aum Gurave Namah is also highly recommended.
KGC wishes you all a very happy Guru Pūrṇimā in advance !
About the Author
The events that led up to my foray as a Vedic Astrologer and made me an astrology consultant in Dubai, makes a long journey starting off at an interesting story. I was a young aspiring engineer travelling to Mumbai and was waiting at the boarding gate when I made acquaintance with a striking personality as serene and peaceful as still water. He was an astrologer who in a few exchanges looked into my eyes and keenly insisted that my past reincarnations hold the karma of a great astrologer. Following this revelation he deftly laid out a few of my life’s immediate predictions. That was my first understanding of correct predictions and understood how important it was to “Learn from a Guru” than mug up books. Sure enough, the next month I was on a flight to the Himalayas towards my Guru and then began my never ending educational journey, as my Gurudev said “Kaartik, Jyotish is an ocean, start swimming”. My initial years were spent in detail research mastering the study of astronomy, astrology, numerology, gemology, mantras, Vāstu, mundane astrology etc. Years spent in the valleys of Himalaya’s have been extremely humbling. They have made me see my life and all those who enter it as a gift. Serving humanity through spiritual counseling gives me immense pleasure and is my soul’s goal. If I can help anyone ease their pain through my art, it is my privilege. I attend everyone, who seeks me, irrespective of religion, caste or social status. Astrology/Jyotish vidya is a powerful tool based on the principles of ancient Vedic astrology and modern science which when applied to any of life’s personal or corporate circumstances can direct decisions towards ease of trouble after a span of discord. I try to help my clients identify their destiny in life and help them focus on the same. In my years of experience I have recognized that the main reason of unhappiness is trying to achieve what is outside the realms of destiny. Aid can come in the form of remedial mantras, accurate birth stones wore correctly, color remedy, name correction and re-introducing yourself to you among many other simple and practical solutions. Maintaining a parallel corporate career has ensured that I am in complete synchrony with today’s times which is always an added asset to my private and corporate clients, as I fully understand ancient traditions and modern culture without ensuing judgments. Finally and most importantly, I understand that as a professional astrologer I shall be privy to the many secrets and respect client’s confidentiality at all times.
