Guru-purnima is a festival celebrating the appearance day of Sri Krsna Dvaipayana Veda Vyasadeva, the literary incarnation of the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna, by whose mercy all the Vedic literatures have manifest and we have received them. Throughout India and the world, people celebrate this sacred day by worshiping his representative, Sri Guru, who purely presents all Vedic knowledge from the vyasasana (the seat of Srila Vyasadeva).
Knowing Srila Narayana Maharaja is a representative and manifestation of Sri Vyasadeva and Vyasadeva's entire disciplic succession of self-realized spiritual masters. Several thousand devotees gathered to have darsana and worship him.
