For knowledge Guru and for life Trees are very much required. As per Gurudev Shri Shri Ravishankar Jee, we should celebrate Guru Purnima as “World Environment Day”. On this eve, plant as much trees as you can and take a resolution to save trees.
Keeping all these in mind, Art of Living Buxar organized tree plantation in DAV public school and Foundation school. Children were induced by Art of Living for plantation. Students took oath that they will be planting trees on the eve of their birthday and their parents anniverasry. The tree plantation in DAV was done in the presence of the principal Anil Kumar Singh. Same was done in Foundation School. Plantation was done in the presence of the principal and other teaching members.
In our Indian culture, Guru has been given much respect and value. In a disciple’s life the place of Guru is the highest.
Guru develops our personality like Bramha does, He nurtures us through knowledge and wisdom as Vishnu does and he destroys the ignorance as Shiva does.
It has been said,
Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu
Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
Guru Saakshat Para Brahma
Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha
Which means ‘Guru is verily the representative of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. He creates, sustains knowledge and destroys the weeds of ignorance. Salute such a Guru.’
The purpose of Gurur Purnima is to respect our gurus and to understand the relationship between the Guru and the disciple.
A guru does not wishes anything except the development of his student. The biggest fee one can pay his guru is to obey the teachings of his Guru.

Guru Purnima is the day of reflection. It is the New Year for a spiritual seeker; for one who is on the path. Just like you have the calendar New Year on 1st January every year, for a spiritual seeker, the New Year is on Guru Purnima. It is a day of reflection; to review on one’s credits and debits and look at the balance sheet. It is a day to be grateful for all that we have achieved in the past year, and a day to resolve to do what we are here to do in the coming year. That is the essence of Guru Purnima. So feel grateful for all the blessings that you have received. Be grateful for all the knowledge, and see how knowledge has transformed life. Without the knowledge we will be no where – realizing this, feel grateful for all that has come our way, and celebrate! Thank all the masters of the tradition who have preserved this knowledge from ages, and brought it to us. It is very significant. Our body has millions of cells, and each cell has its own life. Many cells are being born every day and many are dying every day. So you are a walking and moving township. Just like how there are so many cities on the planet Earth and the Earth is moving around the Sun, in the same way, inside you there are so many cells, and so many living beings, and you are moving around. So you are a township yourself. Just like a beehive – there are so many bees that come and sit on a beehive because there is this one queen bee. If the queen bee goes away, the entire beehive disappears. In the same way, in our body there is a queen bee, which is the soul (atman), and if that goes, everything else disappears. Where is this atman or self? It is nowhere and everywhere, and that is what you are! Like there is fatherhood and motherhood, there is something called Guruhood as well, and you all have to play the role of Guruhood to someone or the other. Anyways, consciously or unconsciously you are all a Guru to somebody already because you do give advice, guidance, love and care to people, isn’t it? So now do it consciously, giving your hundred percent without expecting anything in return. This is living the Guru Principle. Know that there is no difference between you, the Divine and the Guru Principle. It all culminates into just one thing – the queen bee. And meditation is reposing in the atman. Today, ask for what you want and it will be bestowed. Go for the highest desire. The best wish is to desire for knowledge and freedom. Think about everything in your life that you can be grateful for, and ask what you want for the future. And bless others; this is the time to bless people. Just receiving is not enough, we need to also bless those who are in need. Via:official Posted by: Himanshu Kumar
