NOTE: Allow yourself the grace of one hour or more to participate in the Full Moon ritual. Being immersed in the Full Moon energies at the exact time allows for the greatest direct impact. However, if this is not possible, the 12 hours before and after the exact moment carry the fullest measure of direct energy. The Angels tasked with overseeing the full moon periods 'hold the energy field' into which we can enter and resonate at will, with reverence and respect.
FULL MOON DAY
"CONTACT, REGISTRATION AND SAFEGUARDING"
(Day Four of the Seven-Day Process)
Solar Full Moon rituals are part of the emerging “New World” Religion. It is a privilege and sacred opportunity to consciously participate with the great Lives of a vast inner world order where the whole is seen as One. Through rhythmic cycles of group approach and invocation and evocation of the high Beings and energies of which we are a part, we are participating in and laying down the framework for the rituals of the new age.
Regardless of what we are ‘doing outwardly' in the world, in the discipline of holding an interior Soul focus during these periods, intent upon making contact with the "living energies and Lives" pouring through the Solar System to the Earth and Her Centers, we are participants of a planned spiritual service and group approach to Divinity.
All who are called to participate have committed to an inner “Soul-imperative” to organize their lives such that they are found participating in the rituals of the greater life of Sanat Kumara – the Lord of the World in Whose Life we live, move, breathe and have our being – and of Whom The Christ is a living Disciple. All who aspire to tread the path of Discipleship and Initiation are drawn and "set apart" for the disciplines that will eventually bring us to the feet of the Master and the higher spheres of Living ~ of "high powered Livingness". In the meantime, we serve with joy in our hearts and light in our minds.
ORIENTING THOUGHTS FOR WESAK FULL MOON
"In the East there is an ancient legend which has an application today and which holds the clue to the relation of the Christ and of the Buddha; it concerns a service which, the legend says, the Buddha will render Christ. In symbolic form, the legend runs that when the Buddha reached enlightenment, and experience on Earth could teach Him no more, He looked ahead to the time when His Brother, the Christ, would be active in the Great Service—as it is called. In order, therefore, to aid the Christ, He left behind Him (for His use) what are mysteriously called "His vestures." He bequeathed and left in some safe place the sum total of His emotional-intuitive nature, called by some the astral body and the sum total of His knowledge and His thought, called His mind or mental body. These, the legend says, will be assumed by the Coming One and prove of service, supplementing Christ's Own emotional and mental equipment and providing Him with what He needs as the Teacher of the East as well as of the West. He can then with strength and success contemplate His future work and choose His workers. There is something of this same idea latent in the injunction given in The New Testament, "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ." (Phil. II:5.)
Thus the Christ, with the fused energies of love and wisdom, with the aid of the Avatar of Synthesis and of the Buddha and under the influence of the Spirit of Peace and of Equilibrium, can implement and direct the energies which will produce the coming new civilisation. He will see, demonstrating before His eyes the true resurrection—the emergence of mankind from the imprisoning cave of materialism. Thus He will "see of the travail of His soul and shall be satisfied." (Is. LIII.11.) (Reappearance of the Christ, 100/101)
THE WESAK FESTIVAL
“At the time of this Wesak Festival, I would call your attention to the fact that the annual return of the Buddha to bless His people everywhere and to convey the message of wisdom, light and love to humanity—coming as He does from the very Heart of Deity Itself—is the outer evidence and guarantee of inner divine guidance and revelation in this present world cycle of 2500 years. Year by year He returns. For a brief minute He reminds us that God exists and ever loves; that He is not unmindful of His people; that the heart of the universe is unalterable compassion, and that man is not alone. To bring this recognition about and to make this appearance possible, a living Triangle of Energy is created and focused through three great spiritual Individuals, Who evoke recognition both in the East and in the West. They are known to believers of every faith and all nationalities. These Three are:
1. The Lord of the World, the Ancient of Days, Sanat Kumara, the planetary Logos, Melchizedek, He to Whom Christ referred when He said, "I and My Father are One."
2. The Buddha, the Illumined One, the Revealer of the light and the wisdom which come to us from sources far greater than our planetary Life, a Messenger of the Gods.
3. The Christ, the Son of the Father, the World Saviour, the Redeemer. He Who has remained with us and Who is gathering His sheep into His fold, the Lord of Love.
In these Three, Whose nature is radiant love and light, humanity can grasp in some measure the nature of divinity. They are greater than is known or realized; human intelligence and aspiration can only sense Their essential nature; Their spiritual potency has to be stepped down if mankind is to bear the pressure of the impact of the energy They wield and seek to transmit. It is this stepping down process which takes place at the time of the May Full Moon, and it is brought to a "focus of transmission" by the massed intent of the Hierarchy and the massed demand of the world aspirants and disciples—itself drawn forth by the massed need of the people of all lands.” (Externalization of the Hierarchy, 286/7)
Let us begin by attuning with the opportunity at hand to be conditioned by the energies of Taurus.
"Taurus—The penetrating Light of the Path. This is a beam of light, streaming forth from the point in Aries, and revealing the area of light control."
Keynote: "I SEE, and when the eye is opened, all is illumined."
I. PREPARATION and ATTUNEMENT FOR ENTERING THE SOUL FIELD
OUR GROUP PRAYER INTENTION
Our group "prayer intention" is for "True Soul" contact and Hierarchical impression and inspiration.
May our unified approach to Divinity reach the Heart of the Great Ones;
May our Group Soul serve as a bridge for pure solar fire pouring forth from the Heart of the Sun to the Kingdoms of Earth;
May the Lighted Way of the Soul lead us to greater measures of Reality, guiding our thoughts, hearts and footsteps every day, in every way;
May we receive spiritual impression true, right and good for the needs of our time and the unfolding Soul of Humanity;
May we learn to Live from the Source and Truth of our Being as has been ordained from the beginning;
And, May the guiding Light and Love of the Coming One "reveal divinity on every hand in every form" leading All to their final victory over death and liberation from the fetters of the lower worlds.
SO BE IT
OPENING INVOCATORY PRAYER
“O Hidden Life vibrant in every atom,
O Hidden Light shining in every creature,
O Hidden Love embracing all in Oneness,
Let each who feels One with Thee,
Know He is One with Every Other."
II. INNER ALIGNMENT and GROUP APPROACH TO DIVINITY with the SOUL STAR GROUP
◊ Center the Consciousness first in the heart, then in the head. ◊ With a conscious "Breath of Life pouring through all the Centers," sound the Sacred Word, OM, coming into the Peaceful Presence of the Soul. ◊ Continue with the "Breath of Life" ... deepening Soul contact ... sensing new Life pouring through all the Centers.
Properly prepared, we are vibrationally attuned with the wider Solar Angelic Soul Field.
THE SOUL IS GROUP CONSCIOUS
◊ Holding the Mind steady in the Light, with an act of Will, vibrationally attune with the presence of the larger Soul field of the Group Soul.
We are present inside a large sphere of golden white light ... participating Souls are gathering in the love, beauty, harmony, and protective potency and radiatory Power of The Soul Star Group.
Every Soul herein gathered is seen as a radiant luminous sphere of Love and Light.
See all Souls herein gathered as radiant, luminous spheres of living Love and Light, connected Soul to Soul through a greater, wider Love and higher Will. ◊ Affirmed in our unity as one beating Heart, synthesized as One group vibration, we sound the sacred Word, OM, confirming the group vibration. All souls and Soul Groups consciously assembled during this Holy Day of group approach to Divinity are making a truer contact with Reality.
◊ With the next conscious "Breath of Life" from on High, breathe the Life energy of Taurus pouring through “the Heart of the Sun — the SON of Divine Love" ... into the Solar System in which we live.
… this energy continues flowing through Shamballa where the will of God is known ..., on through the Kingdom of God (the Spiritual Hierarchy, 5th Kingdom) where the Love of God is Known ... on through Humanity (4th Kingdom bridging high with low) ... and to All serving groups inwardly gathered in sacred ritual ceremony.
In the moments that follow, let us Be together as one Breath, one Life, in deeper and truer communion ... and embrace Humanity with inclusive Love and Light.
We sound the Sacred Word, OM (silently or aloud), sealing in the heightened vibration.
(In this lifted vibration, "Veil the First" can now be sensed parting (felt or imagined) betwixt the lower worlds of form and the higher worlds of the Soul)
III. INVOCATION OF THE ANGELS
Focusing our awareness now on the great presiding Angels gathered and gathering to attend the Full Moon proceedings. From our heart to Theirs, we bid Them greetings and welcome extending a ray of Lighted Love ... inwardly invoking and bidding Them welcome:
◊ Angel(s) of Taurus, Governors of the 2nd petal of Life, Great Cosmic Angels of the Solar Lord from the Heart of the Sun — "The Son of Divine Love" ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Solar Angelic lives — great Hearts of Fiery Love from the Counsel Chamber in the Heart of the Sun ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Angels of the Transmitting Planetary Spheres presencing Their gifts in monthly waves ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Mighty Angels of Shambhala, servants of old of the Ancient of Days and Youth of Endless Summers — Sanat Kumara and Lord of the World Whose Holy Will we aspire to Know — in Thy solemn Presence ... We bid Thee welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Mighty Angels of the Lord of Love, pure Sapphire Blue, White and Gold, radiantly standing round the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy, servants true of the Lord of Love — Teacher alike of Angels and Human ... We bid Thee All welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
◊ Legions of Angels, great Ones and small, builders of the new Earth and the Coming Age ... We bid thee All welcome!
Sound an OM (or bell tones/gong)
~ We pause to ‘Be with Them’ and 'They with Us' ~ bidding them All welcome with attitudes of love and cooperation as we stand in Their joyous, solemn Presences ... and they in ours, in holy Communion.
In Cooperation deep, we find ourselves standing within a magical field ... as joyous streams of Light and Love and strengthening purposed Power have set a field for new life to pour through God's creations (having begun with our minds, and hearts and forms).
("Veil the Second" can now be sensed parting betwixt the planes of lower and higher Light)
IV. PREPARATION for the INVOCATION of the CHRIST and MASTERS OF LOVE-WISDOM; LIFTING and PARTING of the VEILS the THIRD
(DNA-II, 426) The objective of the planned precipitation of the “light supernal” is to "bring about illumination and the establishment of order upon the Earth". The giving out of the Great Invocation to humanity was the first step.
"The second step will be the reappearance of the Great Lord, Who will act as the lens through which the light can be focused and adapted to human need.”
"When the Christ, the Avatar of Love, makes His reappearance then will the Sons of men who are now the Sons of God withdraw Their faces from the shining light and radiate that light upon the sons of men who know not yet they are the Sons of God. Then shall the Coming One appear, His footsteps hastened through the valley of the shadow by the One of awful power [THE LORD OF THE WORLD] Who stands upon the mountain top, breathing out love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will.
Then will the sons of men respond. Then will a newer light shine forth into the dismal, weary vale of earth. Then will new life course through the veins of men, and then will their vision compass all the ways of what may be.
So peace will come again on earth, but a peace unlike aught known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding, and understanding blossom as goodwill in men." (ROC, 13)
The work that lies before the Christ, significantly resounds ~ strong and wide
for yet another Age ~ the Age of Aquarius now unfolding.
Cooperation deep is pledged by All
Who deeply Know and Love Him,
Writ in Hearts aflame with Love,
Fueled from on high by the Fire of Will
and Persevering Devotion.
A new WORD can be heard round radiant Spheres
long held secret in Our waiting ~
Spiritual Livingness ~ for One In All and All In One,
... strengthening with every passing Decade.
V. INVOCATION OF THE CHRIST and the MASTERS OF LOVE-WISDOM
With pure intent, we enjoin all to come into vibrational resonance with the Ashram of the Christ and Masters of Love-Wisdom.
TOGETHER AND AS ONE, WE call to the Great Ones —
The SPIRITUAL HIERARCHY ... in Whose Center stands THE LORD OF LOVE — the CHRIST,
And deeper still, the LORD OF WILL and LIFE.
INVOCATION: Let us read the following Invocation slowly, with solemnity and quietening power ... fully expecting that which we invoke to hear and respond to our call:

silently OM ◊ OM ◊ OM
(We pause to register that which was invoked. In this lifted vibration, "Veil the Third" can be now sensed parting (felt or imagined) betwixt the world where the Great Ones walk and those who know Them not)
VI. THE GREAT CHAIN OF BEING and THE GREAT ASSEMBLY
(Choose your song ....)
We read slowly and to what measure we are able energetically invoking, visualizing and sensing "the sensed Reality " of the "ONE Great Being in extension WHO" reaches the planes of Earth through Consciousness.
Imagined or revealed, let us behold the Beauty of our Cosmos and participate in the Glory of the One - a Presence of greater and greater wholes.
Standing together "AS ONE" unified Assembly, we consciously participate in the great Cosmic descent of energies from on High through the GREAT CHAIN OF BEING:
From the Cosmic Center, the Pleiades—Hub of the great Wheel and Sisters Seven …
Through the Great Bear of Cosmic Will transmitting the Seven Rays - the Seven Rishis … through the pure star Sirius— Star of Initiation and Sensitivity ...
ALL pouring THEIR Life energies through the Constellation Taurus ... to and through the Father / Mother God Whose streaming Love and Compassionate essence nurtures every atom in the substance of Creation ... and through the Heart of the Sun — the "Son of Divine Love" ...
... to and through the planetary lives transmitting Taurian energies to our Earth
... "to and through" the Lord of the World-Divine Hermaphrodite, Sanat Kumara, Whose Will and Purpose guides and directs evolutionary unfoldment of all life on earth ... through the great Council Chamber of Shamballa — "breathing love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will"
... to and through the Kingdom of Souls — the Spiritual Hierarchy-Wholearchy of Love-Wisdom where the Love of God is Known ... "to and through" the Lord of Love Himself, the Christ — Leader of 49 Ashrams of the Christ — “Master of All Masters and Teacher alike of Angels and of Men” — and the World Teacher of Humanity (known by many names of the world religions ... Lord Maitreya Buddha, the Imam Mahdi, Messiah, ...).
... flowing on "to and through" Humanity and all "sparks of fiery Essence" – all consciously participating Souls – Initiates, Disciples and Aspirants in the world of Ascent and Descent bridging "as above, so below" ... "to and through" the people of Good Will who stand upon "the ground of daily living"
... to and through the three Kingdoms of Nature
... completing the great COSMIC DESCENT of our Solar System in the Great Chain of BEING.
GREAT IS THE SONG OF LIFE,
GREAT IS THE ONE LIFE ~
O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM
(Feel the Great Blessing to KNOW the Great Blessing)
VII. THE FULL MOON MOMENT OF TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION
In the period of time remaining leading up to the Full Moon moment, let us move deeper in readiness to meet and stand with the Solar Fire energies of TAURUS as they pour through the world.
CONTEMPLATING DEEPLY IN THE FULL MOON ENERGIES OF TAURUS, our minds and hearts are poised in readiness to meet and receive the energies flowing through the Universe.
WE PAUSE now with INVOCATORY EXPECTANCY (in the thirty minute period or more) leading up to the Full Moon moment.
Let us reflect on the symbolism, meaning and significance of the great event called Wesak and its import for humanity and the world today .... and meditate in the Silence.
WE CONTEMPLATE THE FOLLOWING:
Into the Light of Life we are drawn,
Within this Light we take our stand,
Within this stream of Life Divine, we come to Know, Love and Serve.
In reverence deep and awakening awareness, we open our Centers to the great inflow of Light and Love, Will and Life.
In meditation deep, we stand in the Holy down-flow ... for the 8 minutes emanating from the Buddha ... through the Christ and Holy Three ... and all the Great Ones surrounding Them ...
(In meditation deep, we sound and contemplate the mantram)
"I SEE, and when the eye is opened, all is illumined."
The "Penetrating Light of the Path” illumines from within the Way forward.
◊ PAUSE … immersed in the spiritual power of this Wisdom.
◊ Be now a recipient channel for the anchoring and expression of these energies. To be "fulfilled" is to Be "filled full" with the Love - Wisdom of the Logos (of God).
After the downpour subsides, allow what time your need for further absorption and penetration, remaining open and receptive - listening to your intuition. The energies invoked will have an impact on the consciousness of the Soul and the vehicles of expression.
We SOUND THE GREAT INVOCATION
(Click Here for the words of the Great Invocation, or listen to music below)
Safeguard this day of Contact. Preserving the inner silence … listening to ‘impressions’ today and in the "distribution" days that follow as new energy, intuitions and awareness 'fall into' the mind and heart and etheric system (of the Monad-In-Extension - the person on the ground).
In the 12 hour period before and following the Full Moon, we remain subjectively in the "Silence of the Soul" regardless of outer activity. Today, we safeguard the energies received through Contact, for fuller Registration.
