Guru Poornima

This Guru Poornima, we pay homage to Swami Sukhabodhanada for his guidance through the years. A guru is said to remove the darkness of ignorance, and reveal to us the nature of our true selves as eternal, blissful beings. Swamiji has worked tirelessly to unravel simple truths for healthy living and guided hundreds of thousands on their spiritual quest.

The path to inner freedom and peace may be arduous, but he has these words of comfort as a guru:

'I want you to be sensitive to what I say. In between, if you get confused, be happy that you are confused. When you get confused it means you can understand. Buffalo never get confused; it is the human being alone that gets confused. Thinking requires that you get confused initially.'

All the Chapters celebrated GURU PURNIMA on the 31st of July and paid their respects to Poojya Swamiji for guiding them in the spiritual path. Sri Venugopal & Smt Annapurna organised Annadana at Nilofer Hospital on the occasion.
