"Gu means darkness, Ru means dispeller. One who dispels your darkness is a Guru."
The first full moon after the summer solstice in the month of Ashadha (July-August), is known as Guru Purnima. This sacred day marks the first transmission of the yogic sciences from Shiva – the Adiyogi or first yogi – to his first disciples, the Saptarishis, the seven celebrated sages. Thus, the Adiyogi became the Adi Guru or first Guru on this day. The Saptarishis carried this knowing throughout the world and even today, every spiritual process on the planet draws from the spine of knowing created by Adiyogi.

Guru Purnima has been a powerful opportunity to focus on my Sadhana and dig a little deeper into the roots of my being with the help of Sadhguru's guidance.
After Guru Purnima, I felt a very close connection to everything and everyone and felt such joy ... I can't explain it!
On Guru Purnima I feel a certain kind of alignment in my system that brings me much joy.
