The Guru Purnima festival falls in the month of Ashadh of the Hindu Calender in the day of full moon and this year Ashadh Purnima falls on 25 July 2010. This is also known as Vyas purnima as this day is the day on which sage Veda Vyaasa who classified the Vedas, wrote the eighteen Puranas and the Mahabharat was born.
