"The greatest fortune in this world is to be a disciple or a devotee." - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar
Inner Joy and Celebration
"Having a Guru in Life means you have Everything" - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Guru Purnima is the day to pause and note all that you’ve been given by the universe and celebrate with gratitude. However, feeling grateful for things we have only scratched the surface of our joyful cores. It is possible to feel grateful without an apparent reason and experience spikes of inner joy and celebration. Let the words of a Master do this magic for you!
The essence of Guru Purnima: It is a day of reflection; to review one's credits and debits and look at the balance sheet. It is a day to be grateful for all that we have achieved in the past year, and a day to resolve to do what we are here to do in the coming year. That is the essence of Guru Purnima.
