If [the New Group of World Servers] can aspire, pray, meditate and serve,
focusing in unison with all other servers at the time of the May full moon,
the salvaging of humanity can go forward with much greater speed than
heretofore, and the results will be appreciably apparent.
- Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Psychology II
Just as the Buddhist pilgrims who come together in physical formation from the surrounding districts to the remote location of Mt. Kailish, high in the Himalayas “at the top of the world” … so are we also making the journey symbolically in order to arrive in planetary group formation for meditative group alignment and service.
The quality of our preparation is of paramount importance, in order that the annual Approach of the Buddha to the Wesak Valley may be successful in imparting the Blessing he brings from on High. At the Wesak moment, the pure energies he brings for humanity are passed to Christ and the awaiting Spiritual Kingdom together with those Pilgrims who have found their way to participate in this all important ceremony, wherein Spirit and Form are united in Creative Service to the entire planetary Life.
Through our group alignment, we sense the Buddha and the Christ to be 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.
Steadily and without cessation, the Divine plan is being revealed. The Christ and the Buddha show us, yet again, the potential for integrating the Way of Mind with the Way of the Heart.
The Wesak Full Moon Festival is on Thursday, April 21 ~ as we continue our meditation focus theme for the annual cycle, based anew on "Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation".
Wesak heralds the high point of the Spiritual Year, this cycle having commenced at the recent spring equinox.
For this guided Wesak Festival Meditation, our audio player provides a spoken, produced version of the meditation with music, so you may listen while meditating, uninterrupted.
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
The Eternal Rhythm of the Ages,
The Rhythm of the Sages
We now link up with people of goodwill everywhere, creating a united group channel through which the spiritual forces can become available.
Affirming this channel, "We stand poised, united as one soul with our Spiritual Hierarchy." We hold the focus.
We presently see a grid of light all over the earth, connecting the light of every lightworker and each sacred energy vortex. This network serves as a conduit through which the heavenly blessings may flow through each and every one of us and to the planet Earth.
Achieving this alignment, we become still and receptive ...
We rise as One, to meet the Light. In response the great gateway that is Taurus swings open wide, and we are bathed in a golden white Light.
The Light offers to all the very essence of The Buddha's Illumination.
This Light brings to mind ... birth, rebirth, and a new way of living and being.
Each year the Wesak cycle is a unique time, as we are called to devote ourselves to Spirit ~ to the Divine, as expressed by The Buddha.
The Wisdom and Light of The Buddha's great enlightenment 2500 years ago is ours now, if we so dedicate ourself. It illumines the way beyond fear, scarcity, doubt, and darkness unto a new world ~ of Light, Wisdom, Abundance.
The Buddha's Eightfold Path lies before us. We see it clearly, each step a jewel to be slowly and truly contemplated ...
Right Knowledge leads to Wisdom
Right Aspiration leads to Divine Inclination
Right Speech leads to Truth and Understanding
Right Behavior leads to Goodwill
Right Livelihood leads to Sharing
Right Effort leads to Highest Outcome
Right Mindfulness leads to Purposeful Living
Right Absorption leads to Unity
As we embody these qualities, we rise to embrace Higher Mind. Here we can see true cause and effect. The shadows fall away, revealing greater Wisdom and Insight.
As the Buddha and the Christ come together for the greatest good for all Life ... let us come together to continue their great unifying and undying work. The Wisdom of these great Sages is passed on to us, through the Ages.
In this most high and holy time, we're able to find the way to rededicate our lives inwardly to the Divine Way ~ through Prayer, Contemplation and Meditation.
Let us outwardly shine, with exceptional Kindness and Clarity, the Light of Life that lives within all.
The change within brings about the greater change so necessary in our world, to achieve inclusiveness ... you and I ~ we ~ are One, further revealing and manifesting our Divine Destiny.
We have come to the Wesak Valley,
We are here to receive the Buddha
We are here to continue the work already begun ...
As we emerge from meditation, we are joined in this stream by lightworkers everywhere on the planet and from on high. With focused mind, heart and will, together we say The Great Invocation.

We play our part with stern resolve, with earnest aspiration
We look above, we help below, we dream not, nor we rest
We toil, we serve, we reap; we pray, we are the Cross, we are the Way
We tread upon the work we do, we mount upon the slain self
We kill desire, and we strive, forgetting all reward.
We forego peace; we forfeit rest, and in the stress of pain
We lose ourself and find The Self and enter into peace.
