Getting Ready for Wesak Meditation
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 festivals in many cultures, especially among the Buddhists. Buddha Purnima basically means the full moon of Buddha.
Though for some, Wesak appears to be a Buddhic practice, it is universal in nature. People from various backgrounds, races and religions gather together every year to take part in this great act of service and to receive the tremendous amount of spiritual energies and blessings that pour down on earth to accelerate their spiritual development.
Pranic Healers, following the teachings of Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, have been active participants of the Wesak meditation for over a few decades now. Full moon of Taurus therefore marks a very special occasion for all the Pranic Healers worldwide, to join together in service and continue the legacy that Grand Master Choa Kok Sui has left behind.
"Wesak links east and west, Buddha and Christ, Shamballa and Hierarchy, purpose and love." Alice Bailey
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.
Based on a legend, every year at the exact time of Wesak, Lord Buddha comes down and pours forth the spiritual blessings and energies of the divine. Christ as the representative of the humanity receives the blessings and distributes them to the humankind.
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 believed to last throughout the year. Meditating during Wesak both benefits the individuals and the whole humanity to help manifest 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 purification and meditation prior to the actual meditation. Without thorough purifications and preparations, the Wesak meditation will not create the expected effects on the practitioners, as the body is not prepared to receive the blessings. In fact the 5 days of Wesak festival are 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 of 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 might hinder the usefulness of practitioners as channels of spiritual force.
"Purification is necessary in achieving Calmness and Stillness. If you want tremendous Spiritual Energy to pass through the body… you must Purify." Master Choa Kok Sui
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 therefore highly recommended for all the spiritual practitioners to prepare their systems and hold an attitude of dedication, service and receptivity that enables the Hierarchy to use them as more effective instruments.
"No cost is too great to pay in order to be of use to the Hierarchy at the time of the Wesak Festival; no price is too high in order to gain the spiritual illumination which can be possible at that time." Alice Bailey
