Legend of The Wesak
Imagine yourself in the Wesak Valley. Spiritually align your energies to the group soul. As you begin to meditate, breathe deeply and imagine your connection to the guiding light of the Spiritual Hierarchy. Know that you are joining with many others worldwide who are simultaneously creating and experiencing connection to the Enlightened Ones. Feel Their loving support for you and all of humanity.
Begin to feel the potent vibration that has the effect of awakening the souls, fusing and blending the group into one united whole, and lifting all into a great act of spiritual demand, readiness, and expectancy. See now a great light penetrating the Valley, so all that remains is the quality of Essential Divinity ... the consciousness that All is One and Divine.
Near the northern end of the Wesak Valley, there is a huge flat rock upon which rests a great crystal bowl full of water. The Three great lords face the rock; the Christ, standing at the center; the Lord of Living Forms to His right, and the Lord of Civilization, standing to His left.
Just a few minutes before the exact time of the full moon, envision in the far distance a tiny speck in the sky. It comes nearer and nearer, and grows in clarity and definiteness of outline, until the form of The Buddha can be seen. Seated in the cross-legged position, clad in his saffron-colored robe, the Buddha is bathed in light and color, with his hand extended in blessing.
When The Buddha arrives at a point exactly over the great rock, hovering in the air above the heads of The Three Great Lords, a great mantram, used only once a year at this Festival, is intoned by The Christ. This Invocation marks the supreme moment of intensive spiritual effort throughout the entire year, and the spiritual effects are to last throughout the succeeding months. Buddha's blessing is poured forth, and The Christ, as representative of humanity, receives it in trust for distribution.
The Buddha slowly recedes into the distance, until again only a faint speck can be seen in the sky, that eventually disappears.

Open now in meditation to the quality of synthesis and the Light of Taurus, maintaining a receptive attitude to any thought or impulse from a higher or subtler realm.
As you return from this silence, join in the Wesak water ceremony of communion. The water, which has been imbued by the Taurus full moon energies and the Buddha's Blessing, is for all. See within the water the Penetrating Light of the Path, sparkling, shining, and alive. In time it will become a beam of light and will reveal our next step on the Lighted Way. As you drink, the Light comes alive within you. As you participate in this communion, dedicate your service in the world, and dynamically intone The Great Invocation with focused mind, heart and will.
THE GREAT INVOCATION
the point of light within the Mind of God
the point of love within the Heart of God
the center where the Will of God is known
the center which we call Humanity
Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
