The Wesak full Moon or May full moon is always known as Buddha Purnima, the day Buddha was born and died. This day is celebrated as the Wesak festival because it is said that Buddha comes down once every year to fill Planet Earth and humankind with his energies of Un-conditional Love and Calmness.
The Wesak Festival is in recognition of a present living event. It takes place whilst some great and heavenly event is going on, and it is in the nature of a participating ceremony.
This heavenly event takes place annually at the time of the full moon in Taurus and at that event there is release upon Earth the blessing of God Himself, transmitted through the Buddha and His Brother, the Christ.
The Wesak Festival is a display of spiritual unity: the Buddha, the Light, bestows the blessing from Shamballa on all humanity, through the Christ, the Love. This is a very auspicious time for humanity and our spiritual growth, and offers an opportunity to recognize the Essential Divinity in all beings of all faiths. In this demonstration, the synthesis of Love and Will is further being demonstrated in our world.
The Taurus Full Moon Festival is an opportunity to meditate and honor the blessings that come to all of humanity at this time. It is important now to appreciate the unity in our diversity, as groups of all faiths unite all over the planet to invoke the Divine.
We as a world wide group have envisioned a grid of light all over the Earth that connects the light of every Light worker and each sacred energy vortex. Together we form this Chalice, the Holy Grail prepared to receive the outpouring of blessings from on High.
At the Wesak Moon this light grid of humanity that forms the Chalice is filled up with the blessing of the Buddha through the new incoming energies. These blended energies will be distributed to all human beings as per their readiness to receive them.
We are advised to open our hearts and minds to find the points of agreement and strengthen them, recognizing that all spiritual paths lead to the same place. When we can cooperate and respect our diversity, we see all expressions as Divine and as part of the path. We see all as the path.
Wesak is the celebration of Buddha’s birth and enlightenment and in some traditions also his death. As the most important figure in Buddhism his life is celebrated and revered. Gathering to chant and pray is an important part of a traditional Wesak celebration.
It is said that Wesak is that time at the Full Moon of May in which the Christ gathers the entire Spiritual Hierarchy together in meditation to invoke the forces of Shambhalla. The Buddha, representing those forces appears and blesses humanity.
The ceremony of Wesak is held in the actual wesak valley in the Himalayas at the time of the full moon of May. A vast crowd assembles in the valley, in front of the great rock table at the end of the valley.
The second of the three major spiritual planetary festivals is the Wesak festival, The Buddha’s Blessing and is celebrated in the eastern hemisphere at the Taurus full moon.
The first in April, is the Festival of Christ and the third in June is the Festival of Humanity. Wesak is the festival of The Buddha, divine intermediary between the highest spiritual center, Shambhalla and the Hierarchy.
The Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose.
The Full Moon is like a pitcher pouring out a healing elixir. The celestial dispensation continues for three days following the day of the full moon. Calm and balance, deep breathing, meditation, yoga, rhythmic music and dancing help for receiving the blessings of heaven.
According to metaphysical tradition, the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment and left Earthly incarnation under the full moon of Taurus. And the Buddha returns at this time each year to bring new light to the world.
Spiritual leaders gather in Wesak valley, a mythic place high in the Himalayas. Here initiates led by the Christ arrange themselves into a great pentagram, while the Buddha hovers over those gathered radiating light. This cosmic alignment occurs during the eight minutes centered on the moment of the Wesak full moon.
SIGNIFICANCE OF WESAK
The annual cycle of the Spiritual Festivals offers opportunity for people of all faiths to cooperate. Together the three full moon festivals of Aries, Taurus and Gemini form a united spiritual approach by humanity to divinity.
The day of the Festival is to be known as the ‘day of safeguarding’ whilst the two succeeding days are called the ‘days of distribution’.
The Wesak Festival has been traditionally associated in eastern civilization with the Buddha, esoterically recognized as the divine intermediary between the highest spirtual center on the planet, Shamballa, and the Hierarchy.
The Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of Light and the indicator of divine purpose, cooperating at this festival with his brother the Christ, the embodiment of love who represents the Hierarchy.
The Buddha embodies the Principle of Light, and because of this illumination humanity was able to recognize the Christ, embodiment of the still greater Principle of Love.
Each year at the time of Wesak, two great streams of energy ~ one focussed through the Buddha and the other through the Christ ~ are fused and blended, and it is the task of world servers to precipitate this combined energy into the waiting world.
Wesak is a time of unusual inflow of life and of spiritual stimulation, serving to vitalize the aspiration of all humanity. The Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of Light and the indicator of divine purpose, cooperating at this festival with his brother the Christ, who represents the Hierarchy.
The Buddha embodies the principle of Light and because of this illumination humanity was able to recognize the Christ, embodiment of the still greater principle of Love.
Each year at the time of Wesak, two great streams of energy – one focused through the Buddha and the other through the Christ – are fused and blended and it is the task of world servers to precipitate this combined energy into the waiting world.
In mutual service to humanity, the Buddha and the Christ bring about a linking that blends East and West, uniting the world’s major religions in a shared holy day in which religious distinctions disappear. In the beautiful water ceremony of communion is portrayed the symbol of the new age which is upon us, the Aquarian Age, the age of the Water Carrier.
During the Wesak festival the Buddha becomes the ‘absorbing Agent’ of will. He uses the magnetic power of Love and Wisdom to attract this force to Himself and hold it steady, prior to redirecting it. The Christ then – on behalf of the Hierarchy – becomes the ‘receiving Agent’ of this potent energy and the groups of Master who work with the human and sub-human kingdoms become the ‘directing Agents’ for the sevenfold expression of this force.
So at the time of the Wesak festival, expansions of consciousness are made possible that are not possible at other times. Those of goodwill are stimulated spiritually to take initiation, in order to penetrate more deeply and consciously into the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.
These reveal more about the wonder of our divinity and about the plan to which humanity is conforming. Each year, the Wesak marks the beginning of a cycle for the New Group of World Servers, that comprise three year cycles for crisis, tension and emergence.
At the Wesak Festival we may honor the Buddha, as well as ourselves, as dedicated transmitters of the energy that can be contacted at the full moon in Taurus. Each year as we experience the Wesak more consciously, it’s important to hold the space for the inflow and distribution of energies, through safe guarding.
The greater the number of people who meditate at this time, the stronger the magnetic field of the group heart and its invocative, in drawing power. It’s up to each of us to attune with even greater clarity to the note being sounded – to quiet the mind and transmute individual desires that only cause confusion and chaos, into desire for the greatest good of all.
THE GREAT INVOCATION
Choose to vibrate to the energies of love and light. In a space of collective consciousness to raise the vibrations on earth during this Wesak full moon participate in group meditation. This is the time when all of humanity comes together with the chanting of the Great Invocation
The Great Invocation is a powerful world prayer. Reintroduced to humanity at various times, it was intended to be the Christ’s own mantra for the Aquarian age. In order to save humanity from self-destruction during World War Two, Holy Master Djwhal Khul reintroduced this powerful invocation through His disciple Alice Bailey who channelled and translated it.
The Great Invocation is a gift to Humanity. It helps human beings to align themselves to the great Divine Plan of Source and calibrate the purpose of the soul. It aligns the soul to greater light, greater love and greater power. The three aspects of God that we continuously take birth for.
By saying this invocation three times, one can call forth a tremendous downpour of Divine blessings. And by channelling this energy to a situation, we can realign the situation to be restored to God’s Will, God’s Light and God’s Love.
There is a great need of this prayer once again in these current circumstances we are experiencing on Earth. Let us join our hearts and souls for the service of humanity. You can recite the Great Invocation three times during the day, three times each time.
Using the creative imagination, visualize the energies of Light, Love and Will-to-God pouring throughout the planet and becoming anchored on Earth in prepared physical plane centers through which the plan can manifest.
Use the six-fold progression of divine Love as the sequence of energy precipitation – Shambhalla, Hierarchy, The Christ, the new group of world servers, men and women of goodwill everywhere in the world to the physical centers of distribution.
We project a line of lighted energy towards the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet, the planetary heart, the great Ashram of Sanat Kumara and towards the Christ at the heart of Hierarchy. Extend the line of light towards Shamballa, the center where the Will of God is known.
Refocus the consciousness as a group, together sound the affirmation –
Reflect silently on the plan for the evolution of humanity as it exists in the ‘Mind of God’
We rise united to meet the light. It illumines our mind and lifts our energy to the highest place. The light is potent, this is the time of Wesak.
The great doorway of Taurus opens….. a golden white light pours through, bathing our collective consciousness and bringing us to the place of even greater oneness.
In the centre of all Love I stand, From the centre I, the soul will outward move.
From that centre I, the one who serves, will work
May the love of the divine self be shed abroad
In my heart, through my group and throughout the world.
Visualize the down pouring of spiritual inflow released from Shambhalla through the Hierarchy and streaming into humanity through the prepared channel. Consider how these in pouring energies are establishing the ‘Pathway of Light’ for the coming world teacher: The Christ
As the Great Invocation is sounded, visualize the out pouring of Light and Love and Power from the spiritual Heirarchy through the five planetary inlets (London, Darjeeling, New York, Geneva and Tokyo) irradiating the consciousness of the whole human race.
THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of light within the mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men
May Christ return to Earth
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve
From the center which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells
Let Light and Love and Power restore the plan on Earth
OM OM OM
The focused interplay of many minds working together in meditation produces a unity of thought, powerful enough to reach the Great Lives working over and guiding our planet. And the combined aspiration, consecration, devotion and intelligence of the group carries everyone to greater heights than could be attained alone.
