CELEBRATION OF GURU PURNIMA

CELEBRATION OF GURU PURNIMA

COMMUNITY EVENT: CELEBRATION OF GURU PURNIMA with Regina Penaloza & Renate Geier 

Join us for a celebration evening on July 27, 2018, for an evening of devotional practices; Kirtan, Chanting, Prayer, and concluding with a Puja to honor this special day of the Guru.

The Guru holds the powers of creation, maintenance, and destruction of the whole reality. All that we can perceive in this world is a gift of the Guru’s grace. He reveals and conceals all phenomena, showing us the things we need, and concealing the ones we do not, so that we can unite with our True Nature. GU means darkness, and RU means light, and the Guru is the one who brings light into darkness.

When we bow to the Guru we bow to ourselves, as the Guru is the cause and consequence of us all. By the act of surrendering to the melodies dedicated to the Guru, or by becoming the offerings we offer, or just by being present in our meditation we are bowing to the Guru. In Guru Purnima, a full moon night dedicated to the Guru, we can tune ourselves with the Guru principle, the source of creation which is all pervasive and is the essence of love.
