Guru Purnima or Vyasa Purnima

Guru Purnima or Vyasa Purnima is dedicated to our Gurus they might be spiritual or even our teachers. For me, there is no greater spiritual guru other than my Late Mom and my Father. Every call I used to have with my Mother she had some spiritual story about either Shree Raghavendra Swamigalu, or our Dasaru or something she had read in the magazines. Mom was a voracious reader.

And now my Father every day when I talk to him, he guides me on every single step whether it is daily pooje, the significance of certain days, reciting certain slokas, or some important facts about our Gurugalu, Dasaru and God. He also like my mother is a voracious reader. Doesn’t watch TV, always has a book in his hand. Mostly written by our great Saints.

I owe everything I know, everything I do in my spiritual journey to my Parents. My Koti Koti namakaras to my mother and my Father on this day.

Today my father wrote a page about Guru Purnima and shared it on whatsapp. Attached is the same and I have also translated the same in English for everyone else.

Vyasa Purnima

ವ್ಯಾಸಾಯ ಭವನಾಶಾಯ ಶ್ರೀಶಾಯ ಗುಣರಾಶಯೇ |
ಹೃದ್ಯಾಯ ಶುದ್ಧವಿದ್ಯಾಯ ಮಧ್ವಾಯ ಚ ನಮೋ ನಮ: |

Vyasaya Bhavanashaya Srishaya Gunarashaye |
Hridhyaya Shuddhavidyaya Madhvaya Cha Namo Nama: |

We can also recite these verses from Vishu Sahasranama:

Vyaasam Vasishhta Naptaaram Shakteh Pautramakalmasham

Paraasharaatmajam Vande Shukataatam Taponidhim

Vyasaaya Vishnu Roopaaya Vyaasa Roopaaya Vishnave

Namo Vai Brahma Nidhaye Vaasishtaaya Namo Namah;

KrishnaDvaipayanam Vyasam sarvalokahite ratam

VedaabjaBhaskaram Vande Samadhinilayam Munim

The birthday of Shree VedaVyasaru. Hence this day is called Vyasa Purnima or Guru Purnima. He is the great grandson of Sage Vashista. Grandson of Maharshi Shakthi. Son of Maharshi Parashira. His mother is Satyavathi.

  1. Since he was born in the lineage of Vashista he is called “Vashista”.
  2. Being the son of Parashara he is called “Parashara”.
  3. Since he divided the Vedas he is called “Veda Vyasa”.
  4. Since he did Tapasu in Badari to get Lord Narayana’s blessings “Badarayana”.
  5. Being a part of Lord Vishnu ” Vishnu Kalodbhava”.
  6. Being dark, and born in an island ” Krishna Dwaipayana” or “Dwaipayana”.

Created 18 puranas – 1 lakh slokas in Mahabharatha. Resides in all gyanis. That’s why this purnima is popularly known as “Vyasa Purnima” or “Guru Purnima”.

    Ho yes, when elders are there we must get all the information without delay I think,
    when dad has so much knowledge we must request him to share his wealth of knowledge, I eagerly wait for the next message Meeraji.
    Thank you very much for your great heart.
    God bless you.

    Valuable information provided by your father. Alas, we have only a very small number of knowledgeable elders now to proffer such advice and information on our culture and historical traditions. K.LAKSHMAN.

      That’s exactly what I told my Father, how blessed I am to get this amazing knowledge from him, how he taught me to do pooje, to do mangalaruthi, to recite stotras, Vishnu Sahasranama the list is endless. He became very emotional.

    Hello Meeraji
    It is very very valuable information our younger generation must know and cultivate to respect our heritage.

    Thank you very much
    God bless one and all
