The significance of Guru Purnima
Namaste to all of you. Wish you a great Guru Purnima! A very happy Guru Purnima!
This full moon enhances the energy in you. Let that energy enhance your purpose in life, the purpose of becoming complete and full. That means to become a Guru, not in the external sense, but inside. That means actualising yourself inside. May you have that power, energy and determination on this day.
Guru Purnima is a reminder that we are made of two aspects, two particular aspects. There are many aspects, but two particular aspects if we talk from the gross terms. One is the gross body, which is the physical body; another is the subtle body which operates the gross body.
As we shift more and more to the awareness of the subtle body, we start experiencing the power and energy which is permeating all over the world – that energy which operates our body, every plant, tree, every bird, animal – everything. Once we start experiencing our subtle aspect more and more, we start experiencing life in its completion. Otherwise, we don’t experience life at all. We only experience life through our mind, which are emotions, needs, desires, fears – all these things, and we think this is life.

Unfortunately, we don’t even try to understand this isn’t life. Even if enlightened masters who’ve attained the subtle tell the world that there’s much more depth to life, we may not perceive it; we may not understand it.
Cultivate your internal aspect
We rather go to temples and pray to some external God or churches, or mosques, or anywhere, for the external aspect. We always cultivate the external. Instead, we should start cultivating the internal. Start connecting to the energy inside, which is activating the mind, thoughts, body, and everything that you are in this world or what you’ll experience in this world.
Just like our body is activated by the subtle, all the beings outside are activated by their own subtle. What you see as forms are just the shell, but there’s the subtle which is activating that life, and when it leaves, we call it a dead body.
When we start understanding the subtle more and more, when we start realizing and seeing the subtle more and more, we’ll have no conflicts. There’ll be no wars, no fights. There’ll be no discrimination because all the creations have value. Everybody has value. Nothing in this world is without value, and all these beings have opted to come here; they’ve chosen birth.
We must be very thankful and grateful that we are alive here, with all this flora and fauna, with all these multiple varieties, and we’ll be very happy that we are enjoying them now. It’s our right to enjoy them. For that, we need to have the right understanding, awareness, and attitude. Today what we see in the world are differences, fights, separations, wars, destructions, and destabilizations – so many aspects which are destabilizing our life.
We don’t need them. If we understand who we truly are and start connecting to the subtle aspect, the Guru aspect within, we’ll never ever fight with anything. We’ll never feel a separation; we’ll respect all beings. We’ll accept everything that happens in life as a chosen experience. They are all chosen experiences – the entire destiny path, from birth to death, are chosen experiences. They are chosen. It’s time for us to think and understand. Let this day be a good day for it; it’s a good day for it.
Be aware of the energy that runs the show
Guru Purnima – the birth of yourself; the birth of the Guru aspect within you. Let that awareness flourish inside you, and let you have that awareness that all these are just the drama around us. We are just playing roles. The one that activates us or energizes us to play this role is the real thing, which has no death – imperishable. In other words, there’s an immortal aspect in us, which is the real aspect. What’s perishable or changing will go sooner or later, today or tomorrow.

So, we don’t have to really bank on this, or we don’t have to really depend on this, or cultivate love or hate towards it, for something changing. We love and hate things which are changing. The very aspect which creates love and hate is also changing – the mind. The mind is changing; thoughts are changing. Intellect is changing; awareness is changing. But what’s the unchangeable part? The energy that runs the show. That connection is the real connection, and that understanding is a real understanding. That journey is a real journey towards that understanding.
I wish all of you to have that great awareness and understanding and a clear purpose, clarity of purpose towards that understanding so that you’ll feel contented, happy, satisfied and settled in this life. When you are settled within, anything happening outside will not affect you. You are fully happy and settled inside. That’s the state of great masters. They are settled inside. They are settled in their own subtle – sukshma very stably. Stable settlement – stability; state of Shiva – state of Gurus.
Whatever they show and express are just reflections; they aren’t that. Whatever they reflect will probably correspond to what comes in front of them. They are just like a mirror. They deliver and show what the others are as they come. If somebody comes with anger, they express anger. They aren’t angry. They just reflect the attitude or the constitution of the person visiting them. Usually, if nothing is there, they are just love.
You’ll just be love; you are love. Love is all that exists; there’s nothing else. Not even a pebble we can own from here, so no ownership is valid here. We cannot own anything. This earth cannot be owned. The earth was there before us and will be there after us. This house, the place, our house, our places, or our relationships – everything is passing.
Let’s love while we are here without conflicts, discrimination, fights, anger, separation, and hatred. LET US BE LOVE. We are love. Let’s express that, and that’s exactly what is the Guru principle. Humility, love, awareness, oneness, togetherness in that sense, and complete stability. I wish you that. Wish you a great Guru Purnima!
I wish you great health, happiness, peace, and everything that’s good for your enlightenment and enhancement to higher awareness. I love you, and I’m always there with you.
Lots of Love. Namaste!
