Gurudev Sri Guruvanand Ji Swami was here for Guru Poornima, which took place on July 12th in Newark, NY. He was there to bless those who were present and talk about how we as humans need to look at life positively.
Guru Poornima has a special meaning because it falls on the day of full moon, in the month of Ashadh (June–July) of the Shaka Samvat, Indian national calendar and Hindu calendar. Gurudev offers his blessing on this day because this is when Gurudev’s divine power is at its peak.

Gurudev talking to the audience
Gurudev took the time to speak to the audience and his words of wisdom were enlightening. He offered such phrases as:
As long as we do not forgive others, they occupy rent free space in our mind.
Attitude does not care where it has been shaped or formed. Once shaped, once formed, it will either create you or destroy you.
Be a reason for someone’s happiness; not only a part of it. Be a part of someone’s sadness, never a reason for it.
Don’t wait to do right and then make a decision. Make a decision and then make it right.
Faith is I know I will get what I want. Faith is not that I will get when I want.
