The spirit of the festival Diwali dwells in lighting diyas (earthen lamps), which symbolises the inner awakening or enlightenment. The spirit of the festival of colours i.e. Holi, lies in spreading harmony. The spirit of Christmas lies in sharing be it gifts or heartfelt wishes for others. The spirit of eid lies in charity. Similarly, the spirit of the most auspicious festival for all disciples across the world i.e. Guru Purnima lies in expressing the purest and reverential feelings of love and gratitude towards the Guru.

The festival finds its origin in the era of the great sage Ved Vyasa.

What love can do, punishment and revenge cannot. However, today we have drastically failed to benefit from the real power of love and compassion. Why? It is because the factors of selfishness, attachment, expectation, etc. have immensely spoiled the real glory of this divine trait of love. How these factors distort the face of the love and compassion, let’s know… Lust … As milk is spoiled on coming in contact with sour tamarind; likewise, when the attribute of love (originally, the characteristic of the Soul) comes in contact with sensual pleasures, it gets transformed into lust. This lust, which is never satisfied, ultimately results in anger. Anger further distorts wisdom and the person falls even deeper into the trench of delusions. The end result is ‘an utter collapse’! Expectations Whether apparent or not, love in all relationships that we see in the world is majorly driven by the factor of ‘expectation’. Be it parent-child, husband-wife, boss-colleague, or any other relation- the underlying phenomenon of these bonds lies in ‘expectation’. … Attachment … Selfishness … …In the world, we see different expressions in the name of love. Essentially, the variation arises when this attribute is expressed thro…
