The story of Guru Purnima-
The famous story behind the festival of Guru Purnima. Maharishi Ved Vyas is considered to be the greatest Guru in history who composed many literatures such as the Mahabharata brahmasutra 18 Purana, Shrimadbhagwat Geeta which has its relevance today as well. Maharishi Ved Vyas was born on the day of full moon on the month of Aashad. This is the reason that the full moon of the month is celebrated as the Guru Purnima. Vedvyas the son of sage Maha sagar had the knowledge of three periods. His divine vision was very good. At the same time he had accurately predicted the Kalyug. Vedvyas divided the Vedas into two parts which are Rig-Veda, Yajurveda, Samaveda and Atharvaveda because he saw the future that no one would be able to fully study the Vedas in the Kalyug itself. In such a situation Vedvyas divided it into four parts to keep the religion alive in the hearts of the people.
The Vedas was so difficult to study that he composed The Puranas in the form of fifth Veda in which knowledge is presented in the form of stories. Maharishi Vyas gave his knowledge to his disciples so that he could further expand the knowledge. Therefore on this day a man should worship His Guru as a part and form of Maharishi Vyas.
