The Sanskrit root “Gu” means darkness or ignorance. “Ru” denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes darkness of our ignorance is a Guru. Only he who removes our ultimate darkness, known as Maya, and who inspires and guides us on to the path of God-realization is the true Guru. It is difficult to attain such knowledge by his own endeavor by a spiritual aspirant, no matter how brilliant he is. In essence, one can only attain salvation by serving the satpurush. Treading the path to God-realization by one’s own efforts is likened by the Katha Upanishad as walking on a razor’s edge.
The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh (Indian calendar month) is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima. The day is celebrated in remembrance and veneration to sage Ved Vyas. He is the Adi (original/first) Guru of the Hindu Dharma, who classified the Vedas, wrote the eighteen Puranas and the Mahabharat. On this day, the Guru is offered Puja (worship) by the disciples.

Adi Shankaracharya said, “If a person, despite possessing: a handsome, disease-free body, fame, a mountain of wealth, and even if he has studied the Vedas and all other scriptures, and has himself composed many scriptures, but has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has achieved nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing.”
