Buddha Purnima is the most sacred day in the Buddhist calendar. It is the most important festival of the Buddhists, and is celebrated with great enthusiasm.This year it is coming on 30th April 2018.
Although Buddhists regard every full moon as sacred, the moon of the month of Vaisakh/ Wesak has special significance because on this day the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment (nirvana), and attained parinirvana (nirvana-after-death of the body) when he died.
Buddha Purnima is believed to be the most powerful full moon of the year, Wesak meditation is conducted on the exact time of the full moon by many spiritual practitioners as a great way of service to mankind and the entire earth.
Each year at the time of Wesak, two great streams of Energy – one focused through the Buddha and the other through the Christ- are fused and blended, and it is the task of world servers to precipitate this combined energy into the waiting world.
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.
So around the Wesak festival, expansions of consciousness are made possible that are not possible at other times. Those of goodwill are stimulated spiritually to take initiation, in order to penetrate more deeply and consciously into the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. These reveal more about the wonder of our divinity, and about the Plan to which humanity is conforming. Each year, the Wesak marks the beginning of a cycle for the New Group of World Servers, that comprise three- year cycles of crisis, tension, and emergence.
At the Wesak Festival we may honor the Buddha, as well as ourselves, as dedicated transmitters of the energy that can be contacted at the full moon. Each year as we experience the Wesak more consciously, its important to hold the space for the inflow and distribution of energies through safeguarding.
The greater the number of people who meditate at this time, the stronger the magnetic field of the group heart and its invocative, indrawing power. Its up to each of us to attune with ever greater clarity to the note being sounded to quiet the mind and transmute individual desires that only cause confusion and chaos, into desire for the greatest good of all.
