Here’s more information about tomorrow’s Full Moon. From Gillian MacBeth-Louthan
Wesak is the celebration of Buddha’s birth & enlightenment & death. According to ancient beliefs, the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment, and left Earthly incarnation under the Full Moon of Taurus. The Buddha returns at this time each year to bring a new light to the world. Spiritual leaders gather in Wesak Valley, a mythic place high in the Himalayas.
Wesak is the time in which the Christ gathers the entire Spiritual Hierarchy together in meditation to invoke the healing forces of SHAMBALLA. The Buddha, representing those forces, appears and blesses humanity. The ceremony of Wesak is held in the actual Wesak Valley in the Himalayas. A vast crowd assembles in the valley, in front of the great rock table at the end of the valley. The Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose. The Christ represents God unending Love for humanity. The Full Moon is like a pitcher pouring out a healing elixir. The celestial dispensation continues for three days following the day of the Full Moon. This year Wesak is on Tuesday May 17, 2011.
