Wesak: Full Moon Festival of Illumination

By Risa D'Angeles

Ancient Wisdom teachings consider Wesak (Full Moon in Taurus,) the most significant Spiritual moment of the year when an actual heavenly event takes place and manifests upon the Earth. The Wesak Festival is known by esotericists around the world to be a time when God Himself, transmitting through the Buddha and the Christ (World Teacher), releases a blessing upon Earth. It has been celebrated for centuries in India as a holy and public holiday and always occurs during the full Moon in Taurus (the Buddha Full Moon).

This year Wesak/Full Taurus Moon occurs Tuesday, May 4th, 1:33 pm (PDT). During this time, humanity can place itself completely in line with Spiritual forces (unavailable at any other time during the year). The force from this blessing spiritually stimulates and prepares us to more completely serve the Plan of evolution.

Not far from Nepal and surrounded by the Himalayan mountains in a protected area of land. A path, winding its way through narrow passages, eventually opens up to a valley covered with green grass. Several days before the Full Moon, spiritual seekers from around the world enter the valley and set up colorful tents. In the north section of the valley there is a very large flat rock upon which is set a large crystal bowl filled with water.

Just before Full Moon the Christ, great Lords and masters, Archangels and Illumined Ones who watch over planet Earth gather around the rock to pray and move in geometrical formation (circles, cross, triangle, six and five pointed stars). The sounds, tones and shapes create a unified atmosphere of spiritual demand, readiness, and expectancy. Eventually all eyes are turned skyward.

A few moments before the exact time of the Full Moon a tiny speck of light can be seen in the sky. As it comes closer and grows in clarity, the saffron-robed form of the Buddha can be seen descending. At the very moment of the Full Moon the Buddha, hovering directly above the flat rock, extends His hand in a blessing toward the Christ who, representing humanity, receives it for distribution.

The Great Invocation is then intoned, sending a thought current of gratitude from humanity to God Himself. As the Buddha pours forth His Blessing of Illumination (energy of Taurus) and the Christ in turn pours forth His Blessing of Love, the atomic and molecular structure of the water changes, becoming infused with the energy of Wisdom. This water is then distributed to the seekers and taken out into the world to be shared.

The Wesak Festival is a potent moment of intensive spiritual service made by humanity to God, and by God to humanity, via the Buddha and the Christ. For eight minutes during this celebration, the entire universe links up uniting humanity with the Source of our creation. We call this source God. The Spiritual effects remain until the next Wesak Festival.

Stand in the light of the Sun and Full Moon with the intention to receive the new information and it will be given.
