What is the Wesak Celebration?

wesak, wesak dayWhen the full moon is in the constellation of Taurus (usually the full moon in May), a world-wide event takes place that is oftentimes referred to as Wesak. In the East, this date also marks a celebration of Buddha’s birth, attainment of Buddhahood, and his departure from the physical body. The new and full moon periods are always times of increased communication with other dimensions. It is as if the veils become thinner between planes, and is why meditation at these times can be very fruitful. When the moon is in Taurus, a special rending of the veils occurs. As legend has it, Buddha, “The Illumination of Light – WISDOM,” and Christ, “The Embodiment of LOVE,” meet at this time for the benefit of humanity and Earth. The Office of the Christ and the Office of the Buddha work in concert for the vibrational upliftment of humanity. Wesak marks an intense period of Spiritual evaluation in all dimensions. This evaluation sets humanity’s vibrational destiny for the next twelve-month cycle.

Meditation – Dedication of Ourselves

We invite you to join with all human beings celebrating the 2012 Festival of the Wesak during the full moon in Taurus on Saturday, May 5 at 8:35 pm PDT (03:35 UT Sunday, May 6).

Take some time  to do this brief moment of reflection (you can include a private meditation if you feel inclined to do so).

  1. Take three long breaths and concentrate especially on the exhalation, releasing as much air from your lungs as possible. The inhalation will happen by itself …
  2. Relax your mind and body and begin reflecting on the idea that  we are a perfect expression of the Divine Essence as we are, here and now, and we are always evolving and changing like the Universe.
  3. Look around you, see everything around you and begin reflecting on the idea that all this creation surrounding you is really a dance of atoms and sub-atomic particles held in shape and form by an even more subtle energy that is called Prana/Chi/Spirit…
  4. As you concentrate on this dance of molecules, become aware that your whole body is also ONE with this dance, made up of the same atomic stuff and so is everyone and everything else in the Universe.  Take a moment to sense/feel the ONE-NESS of all, the INCLUSIVENESS of all.  Everything is creation, everything is included!
  5. NOW, slowly bring your attention to your HEART center.  Begin visualizing a bright SUN radiating from the center of your heart.  Allow yourself to bathe in this light, letting the rays warm every cell of your body to its very atomic dance of protons and electrons.
  6. NOW, see this radiating light in your Heart center radiating outside of you, shining and warming all the creation surrounding you.  Hold that vision for a few moments.
  7. At this point, imagine/visualize/sense all creations being lit up from within by the WESAK energy of WISDOM and LOVE coming from the Ascended Masters, all the Entities you revere, honor and cherish.  Through everything surrounding and within you, the LOVE and WISDOM energies are being radiated back to your own heart center.  Hold this vision of the rays of light coming to your Heart center from everywhere – outside and inside of yourself.
  8. NOW, gently bring your attention to the top of your head, bringing the radiating light from your heart up and out from the top of your head, like a beautiful fountain showering this light and love all over planet Earth.
  9. Repeat to yourself:
    I AM ONE WITH ALL (God…)
  10. When you feel ready, close your meditation with a deep breath, keeping your awareness of the radiating SUN in your heart.  It is always there.  How many times will you be aware of it in the coming 12 months?
  11. Make a dedication-commitment that any time you become aware that you are breathing (for the rest of your life!!) take a deep breath and remind yourself that you are a being of light, that you are a co-creator through every thought, word and emotion that you have moment by moment and you will become more and more aware of this with every breath that you take.
  12. As you become more aware of your thoughts, words and emotions, you will slowly realize that you have the FREEDOM of CHOICE to choose any thought, word and emotion at any given time.
  13. NOW, you are CHOOSING to be a CO-CREATOR by accepting and recognizing this POWER through your FREEDOM of CHOICE.
