Guru Purnima, also known as Vyasa Purnima, is a festival dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers. The day holds an immense significance to Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. Full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashadha, which coincides with June or July according to the Gregorian calendar, is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima. The festival is celebrated by Buddhists in remembrance of Lord Buddha, who gave his first sermon on this day at Sarnath in Uttar Pradesh. The day is celebrated by Hindus in remembrance of sage Maharshi Veda Vyasa, a symbol of guru-shishya tradition. Irrespective of the religions, Indian academics celebrate the day by thanking their teachers. Many schools, colleges, and educational institutions organise events to mark the day. Alumni visit their teachers as a gesture of gratitude. In 2018, Guru Purnima falls on July 27. On this day, people pay respect and express their gratitude towards their gurus.

To share your emotions in words, here are some wishes and greetings in English/Hindi that you can share on SMS, WhatsApp and Facebook.
