A Call for a Greater World Service
The Wesak, also known as Buddha Purnima, comes from the Sanskrit term Vaisakha, which refers to the month when Wesak is celebrated, and is one of the most auspicious holidays in many cultures, especially among the Buddhists. Buddha Purnima basically means the full moon of Buddha.
Believed to be the most powerful full moon of the year, Wesak meditation is conducted on the exact time of the full moon of Taurus by many spiritual practitioners as a great way of service to mankind and the entire earth.
Based on a legend, every year at the exact time of Wesak, Lord Buddha will come down and pour forth the spiritual blessings and energies of the divine. Christ as the representative of the humanity receives all the blessings and distributes them to all.
In this way once a year during the Wesak festival a renewed spiritual energy and life is transmitted to the humanity and to every person and every being on earth, which marks a great point in the life and development of people on earth.
The effect of this moment of intensive spiritual effort and invaluable service will last throughout the year and is basically a great way of helping in manifesting the divine plan on earth.
Therefore many spiritual practitioners, disciples, Arhats and Masters prepare themselves well ahead to participate in this great act of service through days of intensive purifications and meditations prior to the actual meditation.
Without thorough purifications and preparations, the Wesak meditation will not create the expected effects on the practitioners.
In fact the 5 days of Wesak festival is crucial. It is believed that during these 5 days very special energies, emanating from the Heart of God, through the Lord Buddha, the Lord Christ, and the Spiritual Hierarchy, flow into human consciousness and are poured forth upon planet Earth. These energies are greatly magnified by focused group meditations and provide an opportunity for spiritual growth.
2 days prior to the actual meditation is the time for purifications, self-healing and preparing the system to be able to receive the intense vibrations released during the Wesak meditation and to remove any negative thoughts and emotions in the aura that can hinder the usefulness of practitioners as channels of spiritual force. 2 days after the Wesak is considered the time for distributing the received spiritual energies to every person and every being on earth.
It is suggested that during the 2 days of purification before the Wesak festival, spiritual practitioners hold an attitude of dedication, service and receptivity that enables the Hierarchy to use them as instruments more effectively.
During the 2 days after the Wesak meditation, further group meditations and blessings are conducted to help in distributing the spiritual energies and divine blessings to a greater number of people throughout the world.
So to summarize, the five days of Wesak meditation festival include:
– 2 days of Purification and Meditation before Wesak to help in absorbing the Divine Energies more effectively, as the chakras and the aura are clean!
– The actual Wesak meditation to receive the energies channeled through the Lord Buddha and Lord Christ.
– 2 days of Meditation after Wesak to assimilate the divine blessings and further distribute them to the whole world.
