With her ongoing training in Khayal Gayaki, Vidya has also under the guidance of her Guru gained a rich repertoire of Sufi and Bhakti Music.

The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima. Bringing out the essence of guru purnima falling in the month of Ashadh, Osho says that a guru is like the moon who doesnot have any light of its own but draws the energy and light from the supreme soul. Unlike full moon nights of other months the moon in the month of Ashadh is surrounded by clouds as is a guru is surrounded by His disciples.

Guru Purnima is the day when one expresses his gratitude to his Guru.

Osho says Guru is a personified phenomenon of total bliss. A guru is the one who liberates us and with whom we are in deep love, faith and reverence. Guru is a presence. Through him one will have the first glimpse of divinity. A guru creates, transforms and gives a new birth to a seeker so that with complete trust one can follow his guru while traveling through many unknown paths and doors and opening many unknown locks. Speaking on the significance of a guru, Osho says that a guru's blessings is a vital phenomenon. Through a guru one can look into his own future and can be aware of his own destiny. Through him one starts coming up like a seed trying to sprout towards the sky.

Disciples and lovers of Osho celebrated Guru Purnima at Oshodham with a three day meditation camp from 27 - 29 July and celebration on 30th July, 2007, where they meditated and celebrated the blessings of the guru.

Guru Purnima has a true spiritual meaning and relevance for a disciple. It is the day of expressing one's love and devotion for his guru.
