This year, the Wesak Festival which we first wrote about in 2016, takes place on May 5 – 9 this year of 2020.
The Wesak Festival at the time of the Taurus new moon is said to take place when the Buddha and the Christ meet in the mysterious Shambhala Valley in the Himalayas. A powerful energy combines Wisdom and Love to elevate human consciousness.
Wesak is especially important when the entire globe is engaged in a struggle with the Covid-19 pandemic. Let those of spiritual inclination join together in meditation with the intent to foster the coming of the new Light.
The Lucis Trust (lucis means light) is dedicated to the establishment of a new and better way of life for everyone in the world based on the fulfillment of the divine plan for humanity.
The Lucis Trust has posted their message for Wesak 2020 and an excerpt follows.
Wesak is widely celebrated throughout the East as the Festival of the Buddha. For esotericists it is the high point of the spiritual year when forces of enlightenment ﬂow from the higher worlds into the mind of humanity.
A new world is now being conceived by many – it is being actively looked for, and when the eye of the soul is opened, it will be seen to be more real than the world that is revealed by the ﬁve senses. The new light is on its way. The annual Wesak blessing plays a crucial role in the coming of that light.
On the Lucis Trust Wesak page, you can download a 24-page copy of the booklet, The Wesak Festival.

The Agni Yoga Invocation, a modified version of the Great Invocation, has been created by Yves Chaumette. You may include it in your Wesak meditation.
Agni Yoga Invocation
From the point of Emergence in the Spirit of Space
Light pours into everyone’s spirit.
Light impregnates the world.
From the point of Unity in the Heart of Space
Love gushes out into everyone’s heart.
Love regenerates the world.
From the point of Tension in the Fire of Space
Will inspires everyone’s efforts.
Will affirms the world.
From all the centers in the Circle of the One Life
The radiation of Love and Light intensifies;
Everyone manifests the Beauty of the world.
Light, Love and Will transfigure the present world.
The full moon of May 2020 occurs at 3:45 am PDT on May 7. The Wesak festival begins two days before and continues until two days after the full moon.
Let us join together in bringing the Light.
