The annual Taurus Wesak Full Moon in May (on May 14th in 2014 at 3:16pm exact in New York) heralds the Wesak Festival, a pinnacle of spiritual blessing in the world. There is an extraordinary inflow of life and of spiritual invigoration which serves to stimulate the aspiration of all humankind. The intuition of all who seek to serve the good, the beautiful and the true (regardless of their faith, religious or spiritual background) is significantly enhanced by this spiritual blessing.
At Wesak all people of goodwill can unite worldwide in a concentrated invocation to the Buddha, the Christ, and all Enlightened Beings by being still and going within in meditation. This is a time for heartfelt dedication, a time to stand steadily in the Light, and above all, a time to focus with compassion on the needs of our fellow human beings and the necessity of providing a group channel whereby the spiritual forces of all avataric beings can be poured through the body of humanity to promote Enightenment for all humans.
A Ceremony in the Himalayas
During the Wesak Full Moon period, the Buddha is said to empower Forces of Enlightenment which seek contact with humanity. At an annual ceremony in a Himalayan valley He returns yearly to bless an assembled gathering of Enlightened Beings, from the Christ, to the most humble disciple. Participants move in a ritual to form sacred geometric patterns on the valley floor, generating a spiritual connection that create an opening for the potent energies the Buddha will bring.
As the exact time of the Wesak full moon approaches, a heightened expectancy and tension spreads throughout those gathered. The moment of His appearance is accompanied by a great Silence, brimming with vitality, creative force, and significance.
One of the greatest services we can render during this high point of the spiritual calendar is to align with the spirit of Silence in the valley of Wesak. We can prepare to hold the inner connection, even when amid the mundane interactions of daily life.
Keeping a sustained inner silence, we stand as a detached observer – observing the flow of thoughts like clouds as they pass through us, while remaining detached from them – as we actively interact with the higher energies released by the Buddha at this special time. Through the silent meditation at the time of the Wesak Full Moon, we put ourselves in touch, not only with the soul, but with the Spirit aspect whose Presence awaits our contact and invocation. Thus we can serve the greater Whole of humanity.
The Buddha’s annual return at the Wesak Festival to bless people everywhere and to convey messages of wisdom, Light and Love is the outer evidence and promise of inner divine guidance and revelation in our present world cycle.
