I bow to the holy Guru in homage ||
Guru Purnima is dedicated to the great Teachers and Mentors who build up our future. Guru or a Teacher is someone who acts like a guide in our lives directing us to the right path for our betterment. Therefore, it is a fine way of paying the homage to them through the day of Guru Purnima. In 2019, it will be celebrated on Tuesday, 16th of July. The Mantra clearly signifies that a Guru is trinity (Brahma-Vishnu-Mahesh), and it is believed that through a Guru, one can achieve the ultimate result and reach to the supreme power.
