Wesak or Vesak, is an auspicious festival for all the spiritual practitioners worldwide, that falls on the full moon of Taurus. Meditating during the exact moment of Wesak, has been observed carefully throughout history and is emphasized by many spiritual teachers, Masters and great ones, including Grand Master Choa Kok Sui.
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.
