Wesak is a time of dedication and service, to bring ourselves closer to the light and above all, focus on the needs of our fellow human beings and the necessity of providing a group to channel the spiritual forces and blessings to the humanity and to the world. The effect of this moment of intensive spiritual effort and invaluable service believed to last throughout the year.
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
The Wesak, is basically the most powerful full moon of the year, and sometimes is called “Buddha’s Birthday” as it encompasses the birth, enlightenment and death of Gautama Buddha. Wesak is special, mainly because Buddha made a commitment to keep in touch with earth and its beings on this auspicious day. According to tradition, on the exact time of Wesak, Buddha returns to earth and spiritual practitioners, Holy Masters and Arhats from all over the world join him for a great act of service to mankind – to help manifest the divine plan on earth. It is believed that, at this sacred moment, the energy of Shambala is released upon earth through the Buddha. Therefore Wesak, is known as the festival of Buddha, divine intermediary between the highest spiritual center, Shamballa, and the Spiritual Hierarchy.
Buddha as the embodiment of Divine Light and expression of Wisdom of God and Christ, as the embodiment of Divine Love are active during this festival, helping and strengthening those who serve humanity.
In order to take active parts in this divine mission and benefit immensely from this holy festival, we, as spiritual practitioners, should prepare our system. By removing the negative thought, emotions and all that hinder our spiritual growth, we can harness the great spiritual energies that are released during Wesak.
- 1. Deeper Purification
"Meditation has a purifying effect. It strengthens your connection to your Higher Soul." Master Choa Kok Sui.
Meditation in general helps to activate the Crown chakra and bring down greater amounts of divine energy into our system, which get much stronger at the exact time of Wesak. Divine energy basically has consciousness of its own and therefore gradually flushes out negative thoughts, emotions and energies from our aura and our chakras. The effect is not only improved physical and emotional health, but also clarity of mind, better self-esteem and greater peace and happiness.
- 2. Greater Spiritual Experiences and Intuition
In order to have spiritual experiences, first of all our body, mind and emotions should be relatively clean. Therefore it is necessary for us to prepare our body and mind before meditation.
"Preparation for Meditation is as important as the Meditation itself." Master Choa Kok Sui
Furthermore spiritual energy is needed to raise our consciousness and develop our ability to fly in the inner world.
"Spiritual energy makes the techniques work." Master Choa Kok Sui
During the Wesak festival, especially if the meditation is being done in a group, more divine energies will flow to us, and thereby making it easier for us to have experiences that are often impossible when done alone; and the bigger the group, the better! By developing the Crown chakra, our intuition will also get developed. People often call it direct knowing or inner guidance. Whatever it is called, intuition is a great tool to understand life and live it to the fullest with minimum mistakes.
- 3. Faster Manifestation of Wishes
In order to manifest a wish or materialize a plan, we need to stuff it with enough energy. Wish or plan is in fact a thought created by us that has the ability to materialize if it is strong enough. In order to increase its potency we need to provide the thought form with enough energy.
"Materialization requires energy." Master Choa Kok Sui
After the Wesak meditation, by blessing our wishes and plans as a group, they will turn into a huge powerful thought that has greater power to influence the physical world. The result is normally faster manifestation of wishes and plans.
- 4. Greater Chance for World Service
Wesak is basically a great opportunity for world service. When people of good will and the will to do good come together and meditate, they become great channels to receive and bring down divine energies of light, love and power and pass them to every person and every being on earth. Meditating in larger groups, create far greater results than individual meditation.
“When you gather together in a group, the Higher Beings are forced to appear.” Master Choa Kok Sui
When divine energies are directed to humanity and to mother earth, especially the people in need and the areas affected by wars, natural and man-made calamities, they can bring about relief, peace and harmony.
- 5. Spiritual Empowerment
"Meditation speeds up the evolutionary process by gradually purifying negative tendencies." Master Choa Kok Sui
During Wesak, lots of divine energy enters our body through our spiritual cord, which acts as a communication channel between the divine and us. Therefore it increases the size of our spiritual cord. When our body is filled with spiritual energy, the size of the meridians also gets thicker allowing more energy to circulate in our system in a faster rate. Divine energy also cleanses the chakras and activates them. The effect is spiritual empowerment!
"To a large extent, Spiritual Development is Energy." Master Choa Kok Sui
Once the size of our energy body and the diameter of our chakras increase, we will get empowered! Chakras basically affect us physically, psychologically and spiritually, as each chakra functions at all these three levels. So when chakras get bigger, we will notice improvement in various parts of life. While a bigger Ajna chakra, manifest as greater will power, a bigger Throat chakra brings more creativity and a bigger Heart chakra, manifests as more love and compassion. Divine energy also helps to transform and regulate the lower nature.
"Transformation occurs when a greater quantity of Soul Energy descends into the lower chakras and regulate them. Another term for regulating the lower chakras is Self-Mastery." Master Choa Kok Sui
Spiritual empowerment is basically more precious and long lasting than ordinary physical achievements that will vanish after death, and Wesak meditation is one of the greatest opportunities to achieve it.
- 6. Recharged Body and Good Health
Divine energy when received by the practitioner, will get absorbed by the energy body and the chakras, transforming their quality and improving their functions. Divine energy because of its color and quality, have a lot of healing power. When absorbed by our body it brings about greater physical health. Furthermore divine energy increases our immunity and defense mechanism, which helps our body fight infection and various diseases in a better and more effective way.
Increased rate of energy circulation in the energy channels and the chakras also appears as more stamina and recharged body.
Wesak meditation if done in a group can even create a far greater effect as the group’s synergy can bring down more divine energy compared to an individual.
The Meditation on Twin Hearts is one of the best choices to be conducted in groups during the Wesak festival, as it is guided by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui to make us channels of divine light, love and power through blessing the earth and every person and every being residing in it. It is therefore not only empowers us personally, but also make us channels of mercy and peace on earth.
