Subject: Wesak Festival Week in Himalayas

The legend of Wesak says that all who are seriously drawn to the
ceremony, will find their way to the valley in the Himalayas at the exact time of
the full moon. And, that local people who need to be there, migrate to this place at
the right time. For those living far away, this may take place during meditation or
out of body during sleep time.
As millions of people raise their vibration and tune in across the globe at the time
of the full moon, this melding of minds creates a powerful planetary alignment with
our Source.
Toward the enlightenment of Wesak –
In 2014 the Festival of the Wesak full moon in Taurus occurs
on Wednesday, May 14 at 12:16 pm PDT (19:16 UT).

The Legend of Wesak
According to tradition, at the time of the full moon in Taurus, the Buddha comes to
the Wesak Valley of the Himalayas to bring the powerful spiritual energy of
Shamballa to the assembled masters, initiates and disciples of the Hierarchy, for
the assimilation and eventual distribution of this Shamballa force throughout the
The Wesak Valley, lying at a rather high altitude in the foothills of the
Himalayan-Tibet ranges, is surrounded by high mountains on all sides except towards
the northeast, where there is a narrow opening in the mountain ranges. The valley is
bottle-shaped in contour, with the neck of the bottle to the northeast, and it
widens very considerably towards the south. Up towards the northern end, close to
the neck of the bottle, there a huge flat rock. There are no trees or shrubs in the
valley, which is covered with a kind of coarse grass.
Approaching the time of the full moon of Taurus, pilgrims from the surrounding
districts begin to gather. The holy men and the lamas find their way into the
valley and fill the southern and the middle parts, leaving the northeastern end
relatively free. There, so the legend runs, gathers a group of those great Beings
Who are the Custodians on Earth of God's Plan for our planet and for humanity.

This group of knowers of divinity are the main participants in The Wesak Festival.
They arrange Themselves in the northeastern end of the valley, in concentric
circles, and prepare for a great act of service. In front of the rock, looking
towards the northeast, stand Those Beings Who are called by Their disciples The
Three Great Lords. These are The Christ, Who stands in the center; the Lord of
living forms, The Manu, Who stands at His right; and The Lord of Civilization, who
stands to His left. These three face the rock upon which rests a great crystal bowl,
full of water.
Behind the grouped Masters, adepts, initiates and senior workers under God's Plan
are to be found the world disciples and aspirants in their various grades and groups
(either "in the body" or "out of the body"), who at this time constitute the New
Group of World Servers. Those present in their physical bodies have found their way
The legend of Wesak says that all who are seriously drawn to the ceremony, will find

As millions of people raise their vibration and tune in across the globe at the time

our Source.
Toward the enlightenment of Wesak –

When The Buddha arrives at a point exactly over the great rock, hovering there in
the air over the heads of The Three Great Lords, a great mantram, used only once a
year, at The Festival, is intoned by The Christ, and the entire group of people in
the valley fall upon their faces. This Invocation sets up a great vibration or
thought current which is of such potency that it reaches up from the group of
aspirants, disciples and initiates who employ it, to the Being we know as God. It
marks the supreme moment of intensive spiritual effort throughout the entire year,
and the spiritual vitalization of humanity and the spiritual effects last throughout
the succeeding months. The effect of this great Invocation is universal or cosmic,
and serves to link us up with that cosmic center of spiritual force from which all
created beings have come. The blessing is poured forth, and The Christ, as the
representative of humanity, receives it in trust, for distribution.
Thus, so the legend runs, The Buddha returns once a year to bless the world,
transmitting renewed spiritual life, through The Christ. Slowly then The Buddha
recedes into the distance, until again only a faint speck can be seen in the sky,
and this eventually disappears. The whole ceremonial blessing, from the time of the
first appearance in the distance until the moment The Buddha fades out of view,
takes just eight minutes.
The Buddha's annual sacrifice for humanity (for He comes back only at great cost) is
over, and He returns again to that high place where He works and waits. Year after
year He comes back in blessing; year after year, He and His great brother, The
Christ, work in the closest cooperation for the spiritual benefit of humanity. In
these two great Sons of God have been focussed two aspects of divine life, and They
act together as Custodians of the highest type of spiritual force to which our
humanity can respond. Through The Buddha, the wisdom of God is poured forth. Through
The Christ, the love of God is manifested in humanity, and it is this wisdom and
love which pour forth upon humanity each Wesak full moon.
When The Buddha has again disappeared, the crowd rise to their feet; the water in
the bowl is distributed in tiny portions to the Masters, initiates and disciples,
and they then go their way to their place of service. The crowd, who have all
brought their little cups and vessels of water, drink of them and share with others.
In this 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.
In this ceremony is perpetuated for us the story of the universality of God's love,
the need for our individual purification, and the opportunity to share with each
other that which belongs to all. The water, which has been magnetized by the
presence of The Buddha and of The Christ, carries certain properties and virtues of
a healing and helpful nature.
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." These words mean something
different to the Hierarchy of Masters than they do to us and it is fruitless (as
well as forbidden) to elucidate them in their deepest meaning. They mean, however,
five days of a most intensive effort in service, leading to the renunciation of all
which could hinder our usefulness as channels of spiritual force. It means that
after due preparation, dedication and upward striving for the first two days, on the
day of the Festival itself we simply regard ourselves as the recipients of, or the
custodians of, as much of that inflowing spiritual force as we can possibly hold. As
channels, we must be prepared to forget ourselves in the service of touching,
containing and holding force for the rest of humanity. We must regard the Festival
itself as a day of silence (I refer to an inner peace and silent solemnity that can
be preserved unbroken though the individual may be serving through speech and spoken
interest), a day of service carried forward entirely on esoteric levels, and of
complete self-forgetfulness in the remembrance of humanity and its need. During that
period, two thoughts only will hold our constant attention-the need of humanity and
the necessity of providing a group channel whereby the spiritual forces can be
poured through the body of humanity under the expert guidance of the chosen members
of the Hierarchy.
For two days prior to the full moon, we will hold the attitude of dedication and
service and seek to assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will
impart which will make us of use to the Hierarchy. The Hierarchy works through
groups of souls, and the potency of this group work is to be tested out. These
groups in their turn contact and feed the waiting dedicated attentive personalities.
On the day of the full moon, we attempt to hold ourselves steadily in the light. We
will not formulate to ourselves what will happen nor will we look for results or for
tangible effects.
On the two succeeding days, the focus of our attention will be steadily turned away
from ourselves but also from the inner subjective planes to the outer world, and our
efforts will be to pass on, or to pass through, that measure of spiritual energy
that may have been contacted. Our work then in this particular and peculiar field of
cooperation will then be ended.
This effort of the Hierarchy is a five days' effort, preceded by a most intensive
period of preparation. The work of getting ready for the opportunity starts for the
Hierarchy exactly at the hour when "the sun began to move northward." But They tire
not as do human beings and it is not possible for the human aspirant to keep up so
long a period of preparation, no matter how deep his devotion.
When the Great Lord was on Earth, He told His disciples that successful spiritual
effort of a healing nature went not forth except by prayer and fasting. Will you
ponder on these words? This is a group effort towards a vast group healing and by
prayer (sanctified desire, illumined thought and intense aspirational longing) and
by the discipline of the physical body for a short period and for a definite
objective, the work can be done.

What is it that should be accomplished at each momentous full moon in May? I shall
state the objective sequentially and in the order of their importance, and with as
much clarity and brevity as this abstruse subject permits.
1. The releasing of certain energies which can potently affect humanity, and which
will, if released, stimulate the spirit of love, of brotherhood and of goodwill on
the earth. These energies are as definite and as real as those energies with which
science occupies itself and calls the "cosmic rays." I am speaking of real energies
and not of emotionally desired abstractions.
2. The fusion of all the people of goodwill in the world into an integrated
responsive whole.
3. The invocation and the response of certain great Beings, Whose work can and will
be possible if the first of the objectives is achieved through the accomplishment of
the second objective. Ponder on this synthesis of the three objectives. By what name
these Living Forces are called is entirely immaterial. They can be regarded as the
Vice-Regents of God, Who can and will cooperate with the Spirit of Life and of Love
upon our planet, the One in Whom we live and move and have our being. They may be
regarded by certain thinkers as the Archangels of the Most High, Whose work has been
made possible through the activity of Christ and His body of disciples, the true and
living Church. They may be regarded by others as the guiding heads of the planetary
Hierarchy, Who stand behind our planetary evolution, and Who seldom take an active
part in the world activity, leaving it to the Masters of the Wisdom except in the
time of an emergency such as this. By whatever name we call Them, They stand ready
to aid if the call comes forth with sufficient strength and power from the aspirants
and disciples at the time of the May full moon and the June full moon.
4. The evocation from the inner side of a strenuous and one-pointed activity on the
part of the Hierarchy of Masters, those illumined Minds to Whom has been confided
the work of world direction. A responsiveness is desired and can be effective
between the following three groups:
1. The waiting and (at this time) anxious Hierarchy-anxious because even They cannot
tell how humanity will react and whether men will be wise enough to avail themselves
of the proffered opportunity. They stand, organized under the direction of the
Christ, the Master of all the Masters, and the Teacher alike of angels and of men.
He has been constituted the direct intermediary between the earth and the Buddha,
Who is, in His turn, consecrated intermediary between the entire waiting Hierarchy
and the attentive Forces.
2. The New Group of World Servers, composed at this time of all those sensitive and
consecrated servers of the race whose objective is world peace, who aim at the
establishing of goodwill on earth as the basis for future living and world
expansion. Originally, this group was composed of a handful of accepted disciples
and consecrated aspirants. Its ranks have been opened – . . to all those people of
goodwill who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the helping of humanity, and
who see no separating bar of any kind, but feel alike to the men of all races,
nationalities and religions.
3. The masses of men and women who have responded to the ideas which have been set
forth, and who react favorably to the objective of international understanding,
economic interdependence and religious unity. When these three groups of thinkers
and servers are brought en rapport with each other, and when the three groups can be
aligned, even momentarily, much can be accomplished; the gates of the new life can
be opened, and the inflow of the new spiritual forces can take place. Such is the
Group objective and idea.
May I now make an inquiry? Of what importance is this full moon of May to you
personally? Does it seem to you of sufficient importance to warrant your utmost
effort? Do you really believe that on that day there can truly come a release of
spiritual energy of sufficient potency to change world affairs, provided that
humanity plays its part? Do you really believe, and can you stand practically to
that belief, that the Buddha on that date, in cooperation with the Christ, and with
the Hierarchy of Illumined Minds, plus the proffered aid of some of the Thrones,
Principalities and Powers of Light, Who are the higher correspondence of the powers
of darkness, stand waiting to carry out God's Plans, when given the right and the
permission of men? Your major job at this time is not to wrestle with the powers of
evil and the forces of darkness, but to awaken an interest in and mobilize the
forces of light in the world today. Resist not evil, but so organize and mobilize
the good, and so strengthen the hands of the workers on the side of righteousness
and love that evil will find less opportunity.
If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed in what I have told you, if you have
staunch belief in the work of the spirit of God and in the divinity of humanity,
then forget yourselves and consecrate your every effort, from the time you receive
this communication, to the task of cooperation in the organized effort to change the
current of world affairs by an increase in the spirit of love and goodwill in the
world during the month of May.
