DA PURNIMA is a special and sacred celebration
in the Reality-Way of Adidam that has been celebrated every
year since the beginning of Adi Da's Work in 1972. It coincides
with celebrations of the Guru or Spiritual Teacher in Hindu ashrams
and Buddhist monasteries throughout the world. "Purnima"
means "full", and refers to the "full" moon.
Every full moon or Purnima is a celebration of the Spiritual Teacher.
But the full moon in the Hindu month of Ashad (in 2015, corresponding
to June 22 through July 22 on Western calendars) is called "Guru
Purnima". In the yearly cycle, it is the day set apart for
remembering the Guru or Divine Teacher, and paying homage to,
and worshipping His or Her appearance in human Form. Da Purnima
is Adidam's unique version of the traditional Guru Purnima celebration,
which celebrates the great and universal tradition of devotion
to Adept-Realizers in all traditions throughout history. (The
image of the Guru's feet is a traditional symbol of devotion to
one's Guru that is featured at Guru Purnima.)
