Guru Purnima 2021: The day is celebrated to acknowledge the contribution made by teachers in the form of knowledge and wisdom. It is dedicated to gurus and has an immense significance for Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. The day is celebrated with much fervour not only in India but also in Nepal. The word Guru derived its origin from the Sanskrit language where ‘Gu’ means darkness and ‘Ru’ means the removal of darkness. Guru Purnima is also known as Vyasa Purnima, after the author and legendary sage who featured in the epic Mahabharata.

The day is also celebrated by Buddhists to commemorate the day when Gautama Buddha gave his first sermon at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh.
