HIGH POINT OF THE SPIRITUAL YEAR

Wesak is widely celebrated throughout the East as the Festival of the Buddha. In the ageless wisdom it is considered to be the high point of the spiritual year when forces of enlightenment ﬂow from the higher worlds into the mind of humanity.
While Buddhists celebrate Wesak as the time that marks the birth, death and enlightenment of the Buddha, ageless wisdom students regard it as a living event. At the exact moment of the Taurus full moon, the Buddha is said to return momentarily to earth. The Christ stands before the Buddha and, in a moment brimming with vitality and signiﬁcance, receives the Buddha’s blessing on behalf of humanity, before turning and radiating this blessing out to all human beings.
