The word “Guru” in Sanskrit is translated as “dispeller of darkness.” A Guru dispels the seeker’s ignorance, allowing him to experience the source of creation within. The day of Guru Purnima is traditionally the time when seekers offer the Guru their gratitude and receive his blessings. Guru Purnima is also considered an especially beneficial day to practice yogic sadhana and meditation.
“When we were called out to perform, I held my Guru in my heart, I lost myself in the dance and it happened beautifully, in my experience. A very rare opportunity to be with my Master and offer a dance on Guru Purnima..”
