"The key to spiritual realization is meditation"

Guru purnima Retreat & Celebrations


JULY 19 - 21, 2024

Join us for a transformative event filled with blessings in the divine presence of Amma Sri Karunamayi. This year, the retreat will take place from July 19th to July 21st, followed by the grand Guru Purnima celebrations on July 21st.

Guru Purnima is a sacred occasion that holds immense significance in the spiritual realm. It is a time to honor and express deep gratitude to our Guru, the divine teacher who guides us on the path of self-realization and enlightenment. The word "Guru" is derived from Sanskrit, meaning "dispeller of darkness." The Guru leads us from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge and spiritual awakening.

On this auspicious day, we pay respects to our Guru and spiritual teachers who have selflessly imparted wisdom, love, and guidance throughout the ages. Guru Purnima is a beautiful opportunity to reflect on the invaluable teachings and blessings we have received from our Guru, whose grace has transformed our lives.

Significance of Guru Purnima

The significance of Guru Purnima lies in the cosmic energy that flows abundantly during this time. According to ancient wisdom, the human body acts as a conduit for this energy, which enters through the crown chakra and exits through the feet. Hence, great reverence is placed on the holy lotus feet of the Guru. By honoring the Guru's feet, we connect with the divine energy and receive blessings for our spiritual growth and well-being.

May the grace of the Guru illuminate our path and lead us to the ultimate truth of self-realization. On this auspicious Guru Purnima, let us express our deepest gratitude to the Guru who guides us from darkness to light.

Join Us

We warmly invite you to join us at the Hanuman Mandir of Chicago for this sacred event. Immerse yourself in the divine presence of Amma Sri Karunamayi, experience the transformative power of Guru's grace, and celebrate the profound wisdom and love that guides us on our spiritual journey.

May the blessings of Amma Sri Karunamayi and the divine grace of Guru Purnima fill your life with peace, prosperity, and spiritual enlightenment.

The detailed schedule for the Guru Purnima Retreat & Celebrations will be provided soon. Stay tuned for updates!
