1. The guru principle is a thousand times more active on the day of Guru Purnima than on any other day. 

2. Mind is connected with moon. Full moon symbolizes completion, the pinnacle. Guru Purnima is the day to experience the fullness. It’s a time to celebrate this fullness. On this day, the student or the disciple wakes up in full gratitude with this experience of fullness.

3. Guru Purnima is the day to feel grateful for the great knowledge you have received from your master. It is time to review how much knowledge you could ingrain in your life in past one year. This may bring about a realization for scope of improvement, which, in turn, will bring humility in you. It is a day to be grateful for the way this knowledge has transformed you. It is the day to renew one’s determination and focus on the goal and to resolve what one wants to do in the coming year. Gratitude and humility together blossom a genuine prayer inside you.

4. It is a day to remember and honor the light: the tireless guidance, compassion and encouragement we have received from all our teachers and mentors. 

5. In the presence of your Satguru (spiritual master), knowledge flourishes, sorrow diminishes, joy wells up, lack diminishes, abundance dawns and all talents manifest.

6. The unique union of the hearts of the guru and student on this day manifests exquisite and unimaginable changes for the growth of the disciple.

7. The subtle process of removing karmic blocks, fears and doubts are deeper on this day compared to other times. Being in the physical presence of the guru on this day holds deep and special value.
