A Guru is an aspiration, a Guru is an inspiration

“Guru Brahma Guru Vishnu Guru Devo Maheswara”

Says our ancient scriptures which mean Guru is Brahma, Guru is Vishnu, Guru is Maheswara.

Guru Purnima is a festival dedicated to all the spiritual and academic Gurus. This festival is traditionally celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, to pay their respect to their teachers and express their gratitude.

Our school celebrated the auspicious day of Guru Purnima and commemorated the birthday of sage Veda Vyasa, a respected personality who scripted the Mahabharata. Veda Vyasa, a great scholar and teacher rightly said, “As you walk with the guru, you walk in the light of existence, away from darkness and ignorance.”

The day was observed with utmost significance in New Horizon Gurukul. The day began with the assembly especially dedicated to bring forth the importance of the day.

The children started the programme by chanting Omkara followed by the prayer. They day’s program commenced with a speech on ‘The Importance of Gurus’. A special puja was offered by our Primary Coordinator Rajeshwari Maam and the teachers, while the students chanted shlokas.This was followed by a group song celebrating the importance of a teacher in the life of a student. The students of grade 3 and 4 entertained all of us with a graceful and enthralling dance performance.
