  5. 5. Guru Poornima For Hindus around the world, Guru Poornima is considered a very special day. Guru Poornima occurs once a year, during the first full moon in July. This year, in 2011, it comes on Sunday, July 15th. What is Guru Poornima?It is believed that this date originally celebrated the birth of Veda Vyasa, Vyasa was a great saint who lived morethan 5,000 years ago, composing the famous Bhagavad Gita and other seminal works still widely in use today. As time went on, Guru Poornima became a day to honor not only Vyasa, but every Guru. What is the meaning of Guru Poornima? In Sanskrit, ‘Gu’ means “ignorance” and Ru means “remover of”. Thus, a Guru is someone who removes ourignorance. Poornima indicates a full moon. Guru Poornima is a celebration of the fullness of the Guru, the person who removes ignorance. It is symbolic that it is celebrated in July, when the moon shines brightly and the summer season is at its height. The imagery of the full moon at night illuminating the landscape in summer’s fullness is symbolic of the Guru removing the devotee’s ignorance with the light of his or her wisdom. How is Guru Poornima Celebrated? On the day of Guru Poornima, people go to the temples and offer worships to the respective Gurus. After the worship, the prasad is distributed among the people.

  12. 12. The Pandavas are the five brave and famous sons of king Pandu, by his two wives Kunti and Madri. Their names are Yudhisthira,Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva.Yudhishthira was very wise and honest, Bheema was exceptionally strong and a good cook, Arjuna was very brave and skilled atarchery, Nakula and Sahadeva are always very helpful and obedient, Nakula was very good in Astronomy, these are fiveexpectionally talented brothers whose good nature made their kaurava cousins very jealous. Things only got worse whenDuryodhana found that everyone wanted Yudhishthira as king. Duryodhana harboured intense hatred for the five brothersthroughout his childhood and youth, and following the vile advice of his maternal uncle Shakuni, often plotted to get rid of themto clear his path to be the king of Hastinapur.Shakuni and Duryodhana gave money to some workers to construct a palace in Varnavata, which was built by incorporatingflammable materials and sealing wax (lakha ghray). Duryodhana then successfully convinced this father Dhritarashtra to sendYudhisthira to represent the royal family in Varnavata during the celebrations of Shiva Mahotsava. The plan was to set the palaceon fire during the night while Yudhisthira would likely be asleep. As Yudhisthira left for Varnavata, accompanied by his fourbrothers and mother Kunti, fortunately for the Pandavas, the plan was discovered by their uncle Vidura, who was very loyal tothem and an extraordinarily wise man. Vidura arranged for a tunnel to be secretly built for the Pandavs to safely escape the waxpalace as it was set afire. After their flee from the wax palace, the five brothers lived in the forests for some time, in the disguiseof Brahmins where Bheema killed the bad demon Bakasura who was creating havoc among the kingdom of Ekachakra. Bakasuraforced the Raja of the place to send him daily a large quantity of food, which he devoured along with the men who carried thefood. Bhima volunteered to take the food for Bakasura and when he reached their for the delivery by not seeing the demon hestarted eating rice when Bakasura saw him eating his food he got mad and they broke into a big fight in which Bhima killed him.When Dhritarashtra heard that the five brothers were alive, he invited them back to the kingdom, however in their absence,Duryodhana had succeeded in being made the crown prince. Upon the return of the Pandavas, the issue of returningYudhisthiras crown to him was raised. Dhritarashtra led the subsequent discussions and agreed to a partition of the kingdom "todo justice to both crown princes". He kept Hastinapura for himself and Duryodhana, and gave the barren and hostile lands ofKhandavaprastha to the Pandavas. The Pandavas successfully developed their land and built a great and lavish/grand city whichwas considered comparable to the heavens, and known as Indraprastha.
  13. 13. Reeling under the loss of half the lands of his future kingdom, Duryodhanas jealousy and rage were further fueled bythe Pandavas success and prosperity at Indraprastha. Eventually, Shakuni made plan and invited Pandavas over for agame of dice (gambling). Shakuni was a master at gambling and owned a pair of dice which magically did his bidding andproduced numbers desired by him, the terms of which were that the loser would be condemned to 12 years of exile intoforests, and a 13th year to be spent incognito, and if the cover be blown during the 13th year, another cycle of 13 yearswould start. Obeying their uncles orders, the Pandavas played the round, and again lost to Shakunis cheating. Duringthe 12 years of exile in the forest, they prepared for war. Arjuna performed penance and won the entire gamut ofcelestial weapons (Divyasatras) as boons from the Gods. The 13th year was spent masquerading as peasants in the royalfamily of Virata, the king of Matsya, where Bhima acted as cook, Draupadi was queens maid, Arjuna was an danceteacher to royal princess, nakul and sahadev were stable guards and Yudhisthira was royal adviser of the king. Queen’sbrother (Keechaka) was a bad person who was bothering Draupadi, Bhima got mad at his behavior and killed him. WhenDuryodhana came to know about this he raised war against Virata in which Pandavas helped Virata win the battle.Upon completion of the terms of the last bet, the Pandavas returned and demand their kingdom to be rightfullyreturned to them. Duryodhana refused to turn Indraprastha over. For the sake of peace, and to avert a disastrous war,Krishna proposed that if the king agrees to give the Pandavas only five villages, they would be satisfied and would makeno more demands. Duryodhana refused to part even with land as much as the point of a needle. Thus they declared awar against Pandavas and their supporters, for which the epic of Mahabharata is known most of all.It was their courage and skill that helped the Pandavas princes survive several evil plans of their cousins and their uncleShakuni, together, the brothers fought and won in a great war against their cousins the Kauravas, which came to beknown as the battle of Kurukshetra, where Lord Krishna recited Geeta.
