Guru Purnima

w/ Ram Vakkalankaguru purnima square

Friday, July 31st
10a – 11a

Guru Purnima or Vyasa Purnima is the celebration of the Yogic spiritual tradition and its torch-bearers. The Sanskrit word ‘Guru’ means the dispeller of darkness. Guru Purnima is the day to offer gratitude to the spiritual teachers, who share knowledge selflessly and benefit the world. Showing respect to one’s lineage of teachers is, in truth, showing respect to oneself, one’s knowledge and spiritual practices. This year, Guru Purnima falls on Fri July 31st. Join us at AYCT in honoring our lofty Yogic tradition with a Puja ceremony, a sacred Bhakti Yoga practice. Please wear comfortable clothes.

Bringing a few fruits and flowers is optional but a heartful of devotion is mandatory :-)

Cost: Free

There is no charge to participate in the workshop. Please reserve your space in the workshop in advance, by registering in person or online.

Register Online, or call AYCT at (647) 342-6550.
