Guru Purnima being celebrated today

Guru Purnima, also known as Vyasa Purnima, is being celebrated in many parts of the country today. Every year, Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of the Shakha Samavat according to Hindu calendar.

On this day, thousands of devotees express their gratitude towards their teachers for enlightenment.

It is believed that Lord Buddha had given his first sermon after achieving enlightenment under the bodhi tree on the full moon day.

Thus, the followers of Buddha worship him on this day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has greeted people on the occasion.
