India has been a nation that worships its Guru or mentors like a god. You should not be surprising to see the prestige and respect for Guru and celebrated Guru Purnima. Here we don’t talk about teacher and students but, it relates to the pious relationship of Guru and disciple. This relationship builds on respect, trust, and heartfelt devotion. A disciple truly respects his Guru and Guru is fond of his disciple's unceasing adulation. If you are a mere student but not a disciple you won’t be able to take the true knowledge of your Guru. A student only hears the song but not its music, hear the judgment but not its conclusion. But a disciple sees far from his guru’s vision and gets the ultimate susceptibility for his Guru. So, Indian have been worshiping Gurus since ancient times. It is celebrated as a festival in every part of the country.

As a disciple, you should not forget that your wisdom and knowledge are only at your Guru’s disposal. Many students offer several gifts to their teachers to please them. But an ultimate gift is your respect and devotion towards them. You should not offend your guru at any cost because your knowledge won’t be fruitful. So, Guru Purnima is celebrated for the sake of compassion and respect of teacher and mentor of yours.
