Buddhist all over the world celebrate Wesak to commemorate the birth, enlightenment and final passing of Gautama Buddha at the first full moon in Taurus.
Gautama Buddha on January 1, 1956, became Lord of the World, holding at inner levels the office of the highest governing being in the spiritual hierarchy for a planet and its people; Lord Gautama Buddha, has served the earth and her evolutions through many embodiments, experiencing great illumination during the Lemurian epoch.
Born in northern India in 563 B.C. as Prince Siddartha, he was early convinced of the emptiness of worldly life, and he sought earnestly for a revelation of holy wisdom.
Relinquishing his earthly kingdom and severing all human ties, he lifted the cup of his attention until he became one with his own God Source. Thus wholly one with divine truth, he passed the initiations leading to the attainment of the Buddhic level of consciousness.
Returning to the human form—now transfigured—he was known among his people as the Enlightened One, which is the meaning of the word Buddha. Functioning in his physical body, he became the teacher of teachers expounding the Middle Way and the Eightfold Path.
Gautama passed through the ritual of the ascension in the month of May at the close of that embodiment. He remained in the planes of nirvana until the mid-twentieth century when he addressed and continues to address (from ascended state) the mankind of earth through his readied instruments.
Wesak – International Buddhist Celebration
Each year at the first full moon in the sun sign of Taurus (late April to late May) on a plateau on the northern slope of the Himalayas, the Wesak festival is held to commemorate Lord Gautama's birth, his attainment of Buddhahood and his ascension in the light.
At that time, Gautama Buddha addresses disciples on several planes and the radiation of the Buddha is anchored in the world of form through his Electronic Presence. All of life receives his blessing, including angels, ascended masters, bodhisattvas, elementals, and souls walking the path of individual Christhood.
