Geeta Ganthi, the Youth Coordinator, and Arya Goel, a Youth Volunteer, from the Carmel Chapter of HSSUS joined us Wednesday morning to talk about the Hindu tradition of Guru Vandana.

As Teacher Appreciation Week approaches, it’s a great time to honor and celebrate educators in a traditional Hindu way.

The ceremony includes paying homage to teachers and honoring them with rituals and prayers. The guests discussed the importance of educators learning about Hindu culture, and how youth volunteers are making efforts to inculcate educators about it.

They also shared testimonial videos from educators about Guru Vandana and showed pictures from previous ceremonies.

HSSUS and the Hindu Education Foundation are community partners for educators, providing educational resources and training on Hindu culture.

“Running is so good. Can muscles silently praise YOU? I catch a vision of life’s goodness in the pounding of my feet, even in the sweat pouring down. YOU made this warm machine, and YOU gave me the responsibility to keep it going. I will pray now, with energy, exertion – gutting it out. But I will not pray with words for awhile. For YOU are here as I pick up speed. And what, after all, needs to be said at this moment?”
