“कबीरा ते नर अँध है, गुरु को कहते और। हरि रूठे गुरु ठौर है, गुरु रूठे नहीं ठौर॥” ~ गुरुपूर्णिमा के शुभ अवसर पर , चरण स्पर्श ,शत शत नमन , अपने गुरु देव गुरु परम .. परम पूज्य बाबू जी 🙏 poet Kabir says , that individual is blinded if he doth ignore or show no belief in the guru ; for if the Lord be upset, then doth the Guru give solace , but when the Guru be upset then there be no comforting solace, no other path .. कबीरदास जी ने सत्य ही कहा है कि यदि परमात्मा रूठ जाए तो गुरु का आश्रय रहता है परंतु गुरु के उपरांत कोई ठौर नहीं रहता। गुरु के बिना ज्ञान नही – ज्ञान के बिना संस्कृति नही꫰ without the guru , there be no knowledge ; without knowledge there be no sacrament ; संस्कृति के बिना संस्कार नही – संस्कार के बिना आचरण नही꫰ without sacrament there be no culture ; without culture there be no conduct ; आचरण के बिना आदर नही -आदर के बिना मनुष्यता नही꫰ without conduct there be no respect ; without respect there be no humanness ; greetings on guru purnima .. my deference on the feet of my guru .. गुरु पूर्णिमा के शुभ अवसर पर सबको हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं !!! आज गुरु पूर्णिमा पर मेरे गुरु जी के चरणों में भी कोटि-कोटि नमन।🌹🌹🙏🏽
Happy Guru Purnima to the people who have shaped my art and career. Thank you for existing😊 Forever grateful ♥️ pic.twitter.com/s5EG1r9Xto

I have always been a self taught actor.. and he’s the one I learnt from, the most! Like many others of my generation.. Gurupurnima ke mauke par aapko shat shat pranam dearest Amit Ji.. 🙏🏼 PS: On a lighter note, my friends used to tell me during Swabhimaan that I should send 50% of my earnings every month to Amit ji.. THATS how much I learnt from him, if ur gettin my drift 😂🤣😅😉 Waiting for comments from @samirsoni123 and @bahlbunty 😁😁😁
There’s Nothing like teaching I’ve taught a Spiritual Course for 12 yrs the respect honour and fulfilment the teaching profession gets cannot be compared it’s the joy of adding value to people . #GuruPurnima2020 #HappyGuruPurnima

“I believe, more than being religious, I’m spiritually inclined. My Guru, My Sai, shows me the way and direction…
When you have Faith, or follow a guru, you must do so implicitly and have belief in his vision… whether it’s a living Guru or God/Universe. Faith is the bedrock of success or satisfaction. This Guru Purnima, look inward and keep unwavering faith, that it’s all happening for the best… and only the BEST will unfold
As Sai says, Shraddha aur Saboori (Faith and Patience)
Happy Gurupurnima to all,” Shilpa Shetty Kundra posted on Instagram.
Namrata Shirodkar paid “respect to my Guru Sai.”
