Dr. Mahesh Sharma, Union Minister of Culture, Tourism & Civil Aviation, asks Sadhguru a question during the 2015 Guru Purnima satsang at Isha Yoga Center. Dr. Sharma asks why though the Guru is held very highly in Indian tradition, Guru Purnima is no longer widely celebrated in the nation.

Guru Purnima falls on July 9 this year. Join us at the Isha Yoga Center for a special satsang with Sadhguru (in-person or live webstream) or celebrate at your local Isha Center or at home.

Celebrate Guru Purnima
