गुरु आपके उपकार का
कैसे चुकाऊँ मैं मोल
लाख कीमती धन भला
गुरु हैं मेरा अनमोल
हैप्पी गुरु पूर्णिमा

गुरु पूर्णिमा के अवसर पर
मेरे गुरु के चरणों में परनाम
मेरे गुरु जी कृपा राखियो
तेरे ही अर्पण मेरे प्राण
शुभ गुरु पूर्णिमा

आपसे से सीखा और जाना
आप को ही गुरु माना
सीखा सब आपसे हमने
कलम का मतलब भी आपसे जाना
गुरु पूर्णिमा की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं

तुमने सिखाया उंगली पकड़ कर हमें चलना
तुमने बताया कैसे गिरने के बाद संभलना
तुम्हारी वजह से आज हम पहुंचे इस मुक़ाम पे
गुरु पूर्णिमा के दिन करते हैं आभार सलाम से

गुरु बिन ज्ञान नहीं
ज्ञान बिन आत्मा नहीं
ध्यान, ज्ञान, धैर्य और कर्म
सब गुरु की ही देन हैं
शुभ गुरु पूर्णिमा
