Guru Pournima Utsav on 27th July at Folkvangveien 13
गुरु साक्षात पर-ब्रह्मा तत्स्मै श्री गुरवे नमः
Guru Pournima is one of the Utsavs celebrated in the HSS. HSS has considered Bhagawa Dhwaj as its guru and we pay our respect to the Bhagawa Dhwaj instead of a person.
This festival is considered extremely important for the philosophical foundation of our beloved Sangh and undoubtedly has its auspicious role in Hinduism and our Punya Matrubhumi.
The Bhagawa Dhwaj is the most resplendent emblem of this sublime philosophy. And, worship of this holy flag on this Guru Poornima Day is intended to instil in us this positive Hindu attitude towards life. The ceremonial worship of the flag through flowers accompanied by monetary offering is just an external expression of this attitude of surrender to the ideal. Real worship, for a Hindu, lies in becoming an image of the idea himself. Shivo bhootwa shivam yajet – one has to become Shiva Himself if one has to worship Shiva.
The annual function of Sri Guru Pooja presents a moment of introspection for us to check up how far we have progressed in this path over the last one year, and take lessons from it and resolve to march faster in the current year.
This year we will be celebrating GURU POOJA on 27th July 2012 (Friday) as per program mentioned below:
PLACE : Folkvangveien 13, 1086 Oslo
