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.)
