Legendary Journey of Hercules ~ Taurus

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith
in their mission can alter the course of human history.

- Mahatma Gandhi

In the Labors of Hercules, the test relating to Taurus took place in the maze on the island of Crete, wherein lived the Minotaur, a bull-headed creature. The maze is always the symbol of the great illusion. The bull represents animal desire, and Hercules’s task was to capture and deliver it to the mainland.

Principle of Decision

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out
against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and those ripples build a current
which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

The Wesak Legend

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
particpating ceremony. This heavenly event takes place annually at the time
of the full moon of Taurus ... and at that event there is release upon Earth
(according to the measure of man's demand) the blessing of God Himself,
transmitted through the Buddha and His Brother, the Christ.

- “The Wesak Festival" booklet by Alice A. Bailey

As we attune our meditation focus in light of the Wesak Legend and the Buddha’s Blessing we are inspired, now filled with the fire of Life.

Through the Buddha, the wisdom of God streams forth.
Through the Christ, the love of God manifests in humanity.
It is this wisdom and love which renews humanity each Wesak.

- The Work of the Buddha, the Christ and Humanity

We sense the Buddha and the Christ are alive within us. Together, they have created the channel for Divine energy to flow in and through all who wait and serve. The Wisdom, Love and Purpose filling our consciousness emanate from the very heart of God, as evidence of our Divine inner guidance.
