Tue 19 Jul 2016, 10:53:19
Guru Purnima is being celebrated today. The festival is celebrated to pay respect to spiritual and academic teachers. In Himachal Pradesh, several religious functions have been organised in different parts of the state. This day reminds us the ancient Indian tradition of Gurukul under which the students were taught and it is also a symbol of Guru-Shishya Parampara. 
Saint Vyasa is considered to be the first greatest and most beloved guru that’s why Saint Vaysa is worshiped especially on



this day. It is also believed that Saint Vyasa was not only born on this day, but his writing on the Brahma Sutras also ended this day. Lord Buddha also gave his first sermon on this day at Sarnath. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has greeted the people on the occasion.
On the occasion of Guru Purnima, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar will today felicitate the parliamentarians who have been professors. As the Monsoon session is currently underway, the event will be held in Parliament House.
