The word Guru is Sanskrit, and comes from the root words ‘gu’ meaning darkness, and ‘ru’ meaning light; together they form Guru, or ‘one who guides from darkness to light’, where darkness represents ignorance, and light represents enlightenment and understanding. Guru Purnima is the day when Hindus remember Ved Vyas, the original and eternal guru of the Hindu Sanatan Dharma, and so the day is also known as Vyas Purnima. Ved Vyas first classified the four Vedas, the primary guiding scriptures of Hinduism, and wrote the epic saga “Mahabharata”, and the eighteen Puranas. On this day, we ask that you join us in showing devotion to His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
Please come on your respective sabha day. As with all large samaiyos, we request that everyone use the Middlesex County College parking lot, where you will receive fast and easy shuttle service to the mandir.
