Guru Purnima | Celebrating Teachers’ Day in Nepal

July 21, 2019

Every year, Guru Purnima is celebrated by Buddhists, Hindus and Jains on the full moon day of the Shakha Samavat according to the Hindu calendar. This festival remembers the goodness of spiritual gurus and teachers where thousands of followers/students worship and thank their gurus for enlightenment.

The word Guru is derived from two words, -gu and -ru. The Sanskrit root -gu means darkness or ignorance, and -ru denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore, a Guru is the one who removes the darkness of our ignorance. It is believed that Gurus are one of the most significant parts of our lives and it is our duty to show gratitude to them.

On this day, disciples offer pooja (worship) or pay respect to their Gurus (spiritual guide/teachers). This year, on the 16th July, TGL Kindergarten also celebrated the Guru Purnima along with thousands of schools in the country. Our Nepal Country Manager of TGL Nepal Mr Rajesh and Mrs Bandhana also joined the program along with the Nepal team and Green Lion Participants who are also a part of the TGL Kindergarten.

The children started to worship our participants as they are also Gurus. According to the customs, children worshipped their gurus with Water, Flowers, Tika and sweet. Teachers and Green Lion participants also put Tikas on the forehead of the students while blessing them for better education and a better future.

Paying gratitude to our teachers should be a part of our life and this was a new lesson for our children at the kindergarten while it was also a reminder for all of us to be grateful for our teachers who have contributed to our success along the journey of life.
