Gurupurnima Message 2011
GURUPURNIMA MESSAGE 2011
Blessed Selves, dear Bhaktas of Sri Mahaprabhuji, Sri Devpuriji and Holy Guruji,
On the holy auspicious occasion of Gurupurnima I am sending you
the Blessing of OM Sri Alakhpuriji Siddha Peeth Parampara.
As you all know, Gurupurnima is very significant and very important for the spiritual development and realisation. It is the day when all Siddhas, Yogis and Avataras give rest to their Sadhana and approach their Guru. The disciples offer the fruits of their Sadhana to get blessing for their Sadhana. They make a new Sankalpa and pray for His Kripa to protect that spiritual Sadhana from Kleshas and Vikshepas and the Tri-Tapas, Adhi-Bauthik, Adhi-Devik and Adhi-Atmik.
Gurupurnima is the day of enlightenment and it is the day of the incarnation of Bhagwan Ved Vyasa who wrote down the Vedas, before that they were only bestowed from master to disciple. Therefore Ved Vyas is that Guru, that master who is leading from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge by his divine preachings, the Vedas and many other Granthas.
We celebrate Gurupurnima in his honour and adoring the sunlight from which the earth has received the Light first time. Each and every seed and whatever grows on earth sprouts towards the Light. Therefore each and every creature needs that Light, and the spiritual seekers and devotees, by the blessing of their master get that Light for enlightenment. That’s why this day is so significant.
Dear spiritual seekers, practitioners of spiritual Sadhanas, no matter through which path or denomination you go, on this Gurupurnima day I pray to the Almighty Lord Shiva, the master of the masters, and to all the incarnations on this globe with the blessing of OM Sri Alakhpuriji Siddha Peeth, for your spiritual development, good health and guidance for your Sadhana. You shall never let enter doubts in your Sadhana, and never interrupt the Sadhana, there should be continuity.
As every year I have to be in India at Gurupurnima. Thousands of devotees are coming to honour and celebrate our Siddha Peeth on this day, and there will be celebrated Gurupurnima Satsangs in all our ashrams throughout the world.
