Guru Purnima, also known as Ved Vyas Purnima or Vyasa Poornima, is an auspicious day in Ashad month. In 2021, Guru Purnima date is July 24.
Due to Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), Guru Purnima 2021 is celebrated in temples with limited number of devotees amidst stringent lockdown rules such as physical distance, etc.
Guru Purnima falls on Ashad Purnima, Full Moon in Ashad month (June – July). This is also popular as Maha Ashadi. It is believed that on Ashad Purnima day, Sage Veda Vyasa completed writing, editing, and compiling the Chaturvedas (Four Vedas). Veda Vyasa Maharshi is known as the author of four Vedas, Astadasha Puranas (18 Puranas) and the Mahabharat ithihaas.
Veda Vyasa is known as the first Guru in Hinduism, since Ashad Purnima is referred to as Guru Purnima. Sage Veda Vyasa along with Guru Parampara, and Lord Sri Krishna are offered special pujas on this Full Moon.
Lord Shirdi Sai Baba is also worshipped with special pujas on Guru Purnima. It is also a special day in Lord Dattatreya temples. Lord Shiridi Saibaba said that Guru Purnima is the compulsory festival that his devotees should celebrate.
