Guru Gorakhnath Jayanti 2020

Gorakhnath Jayanti is believed to be the day when Guru Gorakhnath, the most important Guru of the Nath Sampradaya appeared on earth. Gorakhnath Jayanti 2020 date is May 07. It is observed on the Purnima day in Vaishakh month as per traditional Hindu calendar followed in North India.

Yogi Gorakhnath  was a Hindu yogi and saint who was the influential founder of the Nath Hindu monastic movement in India. He is considered as one of the two notable disciples of Matsyendranath. His followers are found in India at the place known as Garbhagiri which is in Ahmednagar in the state of Maharashtra. These followers are called yogis, GorakhnathiDarshani or Kanphata.

He was one of nine saints also known as Navnath and is widely popular in Maharashtra, India. Hagiographies describe him as more than a human teacher and someone outside the laws of time who appeared on earth in different ages. Historians state Gorakhnath lived sometime during the first half of the 2nd millennium CE, but they disagree in which century. Estimates based on archaeology and text range from Briggs’ 15th- to 12th-century to Grierson’s estimate of the 14th-century.

Gorakhnath is considered a Maha-yogi (or great yogi) in the Hindu tradition. He did not emphasise a specific metaphysical theory or a particular Truth, but emphasised that the search for Truth and the spiritual life is a valuable and normal goal of man.Gorakhnath championed Yoga, spiritual discipline and an ethical life of self-determination as a means to reaching samadhi and one’s own spiritual truths.

Gorakhnath, his ideas and yogis have been highly popular in rural India, with monasteries and temples dedicated to him found in many states of India, particularly in the eponymous city of Gorakhpur.
