The full moon tonight is also the Wesak full moon. Wesak is the first full Moon in Taurus. At the Wesak full moon every year, many celebrate Buddha’s Birthday, receiving the love of Buddha and connecting with all humanity. Wesak is the most holy time in the Buddhist calendar, the Buddha being the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose. It is a day for meditation and for radiating Loving-Kindness.
At Wesak and during daily puja, we say The Great Invocation:
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
The Full Moon is a time of completion and celebration, when the Sun and the Moon are opposite. The full moon completes the cycle, representing change and tying up loose ends. Full Moon is an opportune time for purging rituals to take place.
