{A stochastic variational principle for the classical Burgers equation is established. A solution of this equation can be considered as the velocity field of a stochastic process which is a minimum of an energy functional. A family of stochastic constants of the motion, determined in terms of the probability distribution of that process, yields the complete list of symmetries of the Burgers equation.}
