HSS Hosts Guru Vandana

The Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, an organization that runs Bal Vihars at different places, hosted a Guru Vandana event at the Burlington High School on Sunday April 28.  At this event teachers from around New England were honored by their students. The event had teachers from elementary, middle, high school and college. 

“Hindus have been emphasizing the importance of Teacher or Guru from time immemorial and, hence, recognizing their contributions at every opportunity. Guru, in Sanskrit, means “teacher, spiritual master, and mentor.” Vandana means “salutations to the teacher.” It is an expression of love, gratitude, and reverence towards the teacher” says Shruthi Mankad, one of the core organizers of the event. 
 
Since the past 10 years, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (or Hindu Service Society -- HSS, USA) has been honoring the teachers for their contributions to the society. HSS has its branches in more than 200 locations in the United States with the express charter of instilling Hindu values and culture among its followers. 

“One such value we deeply cherish and which has its roots in ancient India is the respect we accord to a Guru or Teacher. As an inspiration from this ancient tradition, we take this opportunity to express our gratitude and heartfelt thanks to teachers for imparting knowledge to the next generation” said Mankad.  

Recognizing that this will be the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev ji, a guiding light to millions of people, there was a presentation by Dr. Amar Sawhney highlighting the Sikh Way of Life.  Several other cultural presentations gave a window into the Hindu way of life that was much appreciated by the attendees.
