Guru Purnima is an Indian dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers.

The festival is celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Ashadha (June–July This day marks the first peak of the lunar cycle after the peak of the solar cycle.
The celebration is marked by ritualistic respect to the Guru, Guru Puja. The Guru Principle is said to be a thousand times more active on the day of Guru purnima than on any other day. The word Guru is derived from two words, gu and ru. The Sanskrit root gu means darkness or ignorance, and rudenotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore, a Guru is one who removes the darkness of our ignorance. Gurus are believed by many to be the most necessary part of life. On this day, disciples offer pooja(worship) or pay respect to their Guru (spiritual guide).
