After the completion of education of Swami Dayanand in the ashram of Swami Virjanandji, the moment of farewell from the Guru arrived.Swami Dayanand managed for a handfull of cloves and urged his Guru "Sir a beggar like me has nothing to offer as Guru Dakshina. Graciously accept these cloves and bless me."
Guru Virjanandji replied " The country is suffering from ignorance, blind belief and other social and religious evils. Take the light of truth of Vedas and enlighten the humanity. This will be your Guru Dakshina."Swami Dayanand devoted his whole life in compliance of Guru's commands.
