Guru Purnima is an auspicious occasion, meant primarily for remembering the Gurus and honoring them. It is the Purnima, Full Moon day which falls in the Hindu month of Ashada (July–August). A Guru is a teacher, a preceptor or a guide. Indian tradition accords him a distinguished position and often equates him with God himself. As the name suggests - Gu, the darkness, and Ru, the remover. A Guru is held as the one who wipes out the darkness of ignorance and enlightens a mind with wisdom. There are schools of thought that consider him as the link between a human being and the divine, and as the one who can guide the human soul towards the ultimate liberation.
