The youth volunteers of the Delhi Branch of Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari, are ready to celebrate a week-long Guru Purnima festive on the College Campuses. Shri Nikhil Yadav, Prant Yuva Pramukh of Vivekananda Kendra, Uttar Prant informed that the birth anniversary of Maharishi Veda Vyasa, a son of a Rishi Parashar and mata Satyawati, who was born on Ashadhi Purnima is commemorated as Guru Purnima.
This year Guru Purnima is on Wednesday, 13th of July, so we started the week-long celebration with an enlightening session this last Sunday in which Prof. Geeta Singh Ji, Director, CPDHE, UGC HRDC, University of Delhi, participated as a speaker. The session was held at our Chanakyapuri center, where 60 volunteers participated. Prof. Geeta Singh guided the volunteers and explained the importance of the Guru and why the place of Guru has always been considered paramount in India; with the word Guru comes a series of responsibilities and duties.
From Monday onwards, the youth volunteers will meet and wish their Principal and Professor in their college and congratulate them on “Guru Purnima” by presenting them with books and handicrafts by Vivekananda Kendra.
