Guru Poornima is a festival traditionally celebrated by ritualistic veneration of the Guru, The word Guru is derived from two words, 'Gu' and 'Ru' . The Sanskrit root "Gu" means darkness or ignorance. "Ru" denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes darkness of our ignorance is a Guru. Gurus are believed by many to be the most necessary part of lives. On this day, our students pay respect to their Guru (Teachers). It falls on the day of full moon, Poornima, in the month of Ashadh(June–July) of the Shaka Samvat, We celebrate it in the honour of the great sage Vyasa, who is seen as one of the greatest gurus in ancient Hindu traditions, and a symbol of the Guru-shishya tradition. Vyasa was not only believed to have been born on this day, but also to have started writing the Brahma Sutras on ashadha sudha padyami which ends on this day, hence their recitations as a dedication to him, are organised on this day, which is also known as Vyasa Poornima.
Eminent and dedicated personalities from teaching community are honored as Gurus, on Vyasa Poornima, to inspire both students and teachers. Staff is honored with a memento by students. The students prostrating before their teachers and seeking blessing is a pigment moment of the celebration.
