Reiterating the gratitude towards H.D.H P.P. Swamiji, students, teachers and all members of AVM family celebrated Gurupurnima on Sunday 21st July 2013. The Morning assembly in the prayer hall was held with the gracious presence of Saints from Haridham. The Head boy of the school, Sachin Verlekar hosted the ceremony of Gurupoojan. After the invocation of God’s blessings and prayer, Vice Head Boy Dhwanit Tamboli and Sports Captain Nirmal Patel offered garlands to the guests.
Addressing the students, the School Principal Dr Vijay Patel then elucidated need of Guru in one’s life and that Guru is the medium to communicate with God and what should we pray on this auspicious day. It was followed by soul stirring devotional bhajans by school choir group. Then the students offered their prayers and devotion to the Guru marked by Gurupoojan. Thereafter students received blessings of P. Suhrad Swami who gave an insight on importance of this day.
Thus on this auspicious day students realised that ignorance of math, science, history or technology may make life slightly inconvenient but it does not shroud us in darkness. The ignorance which is really dark is always dispelled by Guru in order to make our life peaceful, purposeful, fulfilling and divinely-connected.
