Give your guru some flowers as well.
In order to receive their blessings on this auspicious day, you must then present your Guru with gifts like as clothing, food, flowers, garlands, Dakshina, or cash.
The birth of Ved Vyasa is celebrated on Guru Purnima due to its spiritual significance. He was a renowned sage who divided and edited the Vedas into four sections. He also contributed to the Puranas, which contain the Mahabharata and constitute the “fifth Veda.” The Mahaguru responds quickly to petitions, and with his assistance, you will be free of darkness and ignorance on this day. According to Buddhism, after moving from Bodhgaya to Sarnath, Gautam Buddha delivered his first sermon or lecture to his first five disciples, the group of his followers known as the “Sangha.”
Lord Mahavira is honoured on this day since it was on this day that his first disciple, Gautam Swami, bestowed upon him the title “Guru.” On this day, farmers also worship God and pray for more rain in preparation for the next harvest season. On this day, known as “Diksha,” many individuals begin spiritual endeavours. In addition, many students of Indian classical music pay homage to their musical “gurus”; this is followed by the guru-shishya parampara (teacher-student tradition).
