"Guru Purnima is an auspicious occasion to pay remembrance to our gurus and seek their blessings. The word “Guru’ is ironic in meaning as ‘Gu’ means darkness and ‘ru’ signifies the elimination of darkness. So, together they make a true sense and depict guru as the one who enlightens our mind and soul, and removes all the darkness from our lives. This festival is predominantly, observed by the Hindus, Jains, and the Buddhists on a full moon day of the Shaka Samvat every year in accordance with Panchanga or the Hindu calendar. On this day, the devotees commemorate and worship their gurus and teachers, and also thank them for their wisdom and teachings."
