In much of southeast Asia the
first Full Moon of Taurus is generally regarded as the birthday of
Buddha. This festival is called Wesak. The story is told among certain groups of metaphysicians that on
this holiday the Masters, Adepts and Ascended Masters gather in a
remote valley in Tibet. There by are joined by thousands of faithful
lamas and pilgrims. A complex ceremony occupies the better part of
the day, and they Buddha, himself, appears.
It is said that believers around the world astrally join in this celebration.
The Great Invocation is a universal prayer of meditation given over half a century ago through Alice A. Bailey, who said it was given to her by one of the Masters.
The Wesak Festival, which occurs May 11 this year, is believed by many to be the best time of the year to recite the Great Invocation.
