Guru Purnima is celebrated on the occasion of birth of Veda Vyasa who has scripted Mahabharata.
Guru Purnima is a spiritual tradition in Hindu culture dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers, who are evolved or enlightened humans, ready to share their wisdom, with very little or no monetary expectation, based on Karma Yoga. It is celebrated as a festival in Nepal, India and Bhutan. This festival is traditionally observed by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains to revere their chosen spiritual teachers / leaders and express their gratitude. The festival is celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Ashadha (June–July) as it is known in the Hindu calendar of India and Nepal.
The festival was revived by Mahatma Gandhi to pay tribute to his spiritual guru Shrimad Rajchandra.
