Easter – April 4th
Wesak – May 3rd
Goodwill – June 2nd

EASTER Festival: Aries full moon  Full moon April 4, 8:07 am EDT

WESAK Festival: Taurus Full moon May 3, 11:43 pm EDT

HUMANITY  Festival: Also called The Christ’s festival Gemini 
Full moon June 2, 12.20 pm EDT


Each festival covers a special period of five days (two days preceding, the day of the Festival, and the two following days), with the climax on the day of the Festival itself, when women and men of goodwill can cooperate much more effectively than at other times, in meditation and through the direction of energy, with the spiritual Hierarchy and those who stand behind the evolution of consciousness of our planet.


Aries full moon;  Keynote: Love
"I come forth and from the plane of mind, I rule."

This is the Festival of the risen, living Christ, the Teacher of all men and the Head of the Spiritual Hierarchy. He is the expression of the love of God. On this day the Hierarchy, which He guides and directs, will be recognized and the nature of God's love will be emphasized. 

This Festival is determined always by the date of the first Full Moon of spring and is the great Western and Christian Festival.

Esoteric ruler: Mercury - 4th Ray (see keynotes 3 and 4 below). Exoteric ruler: Mars - 6th Ray Ray 1 and Ray 7 are transmitted through Aries.

Aries is the expression of will as it expresses itself through the great creative process.Aries initiates the cycle of manifestation. It is the place where the initial idea to institute activity takes place. It is the birthplace of ideas. Aries is the sign of beginnings: Creation - Being - Activity - Strife - Synthesis

The keynotes of this sign: 
1. Express the will to be and do.
2. Unfold the power to manifest.
3. Enter into battle for the Lord.
4. Arrive at unity through effort.

Aries transmits the energy of the first Ray of Will or Power, a power that can be destructive or creative and purifying depending upon the vehicle which it contacts. It is a fire sign and the purveyor to our solar system of pure, electric fire which fosters and nourishes heat as well as burning and destroying all limitations both individual and within the world at large. In Aries it is said that the “jungles of experience are set on fire and dissolve in flames and…the Path stands clear and unobstructed vision is achieved.” Fire is the great liberator, clearing away obstacles and bringing forth the truth. And through the agency of fire, Aries is said to “fuse the beginning and the end, to blend the opposites and dispel both time and space”.

Aries coincides with the Easter Festival, the great Christian festival of rebirth. The Crucifixion experience was meant to demonstrate the reality of “life more abundant”, not the focus upon death that has characterised the church’s interpretation of the event. The keynote of the new age understanding of this festival will be upon resurrection, symbolising the precipitation on Earth of a new kingdom in which all will be free from death and released from the cross of matter. Christ came to show us the nature of the “saved life”, to demonstrate the quality of the eternal self which is in everyone.


The full moon (Taurus) of the Buddha
Keynotes: wisdom & divine purpose
"I see and when the eye is opened, all is light."

This is the Festival of the Buddha, the spiritual Intermediary between the highest spiritual center, Shamballa, and the Hierarchy. The Buddha is the expression of the wisdom of God, the Embodiment of Light and the Indicator of the divine purpose. This will be fixed annually in relation to the Full Moon of May, as is at present the case. It is the great Eastern Festival.. the greatest event upon our planet, from the stand point of the Spiritual verities, and the one which has the greatest effect upon the human race.

3. WORLD INVOCATION DAY (also called the Festival of Humanity and the Christ Festival)

The full moon (Gemini) of the Christ.
Keynote: humanity, aspiring to God
"I recognize my other self and in the waning of that self, I grow and glow."

This will be the Festival of the spirit of humanity aspiring towards God, seeking conformity with the will of God and dedicated to the expression of right human relations. This will be fixed annually in relation to the Gemini Full Moon. It will be a day whereon the spiritual and divine nature of mankind will be recognized.

World Invocation Day is a world day of prayer and meditation when men and women of every spiritual path join in a universal appeal to divinity and use the Great Invocation (see below). Together they focus the invocative demand of humanity for the light, the love and the spiritual direction needed to build a world of justice, unity and peace. 

On this Festival for two thousand years the Christ has represented humanity and has stood before the Hierarchy and in the sight of Shamballa as the God-Man, the Leader of His people, and "the Eldest in a great family of brothers" (Romans VIII:29). Each year at that time He has preached the last sermon of the Buddha, before the assembled Hierarchy. This will, therefore be a festival of deep invocation and appeal, of a basic aspiration towards fellowship, of human and spiritual unity, and will represent the effect in the human consciousness of the work of the Buddha and of the Christ.

Relationship of the Two Festivals  (Wesak & World Invocation Day)
(From the Wesak Message 1944)

At the time of the Wesak Festival , the Buddha will sound out a great mantram and become the "absorbing Agent" of the first ray force. He will use the magnetic power of the second ray to attract this force to Himself and hold it steady, prior to redirecting it. The Christ will then ---on behalf of the Hierarchy--- become the "receiving Agent" of this potent energy and the seven groups of Masters Who work with the human and sub-human kingdoms will (in response to His demand) become the "directing Agents" for the seven fold expression of this force.

At the time of the Festival of Humanity (World Invocation Day), the Hierarchy will, under the guidance of the Christ, let loose this will-to-good upon Humanity, producing seven great results, according to the seven sub-rays of this first ray of will or power:

1. Power will be given to the disciples of the world and the initiates among men, so that They can direct efficiently and wisely the coming process of rebuilding.

2. The will-to-love will stimulate the men of goodwill everywhere that hatred will gradually be overcome and men will seek to live together cooperatively...

3. The will-to-action will lead intelligent people throughout the world to inaugurate those activities which will lay the foundation for a new, better and happier world.

4. The will-to-cooperate will steadily increase also. Men will desire and demand right human relations - a result more general than that produced by the activity of the first three aspects of this ray, but which will be a natural outcome of this aspect.

5. The will-to-know and to think correctly and creatively will become an outstanding characteristic of the masses. Knowledge, my brothers, is the first step towards wisdom.

6. The will-to-persist (which is an aspect of devotion and fixed idealism) will become a human characteristic - a sublimation of the basic instinct of self-preservation. This will lead to a persistent belief in the ideals presented by the Hierarchy, and the demonstration of immortality.

7. The will-to-organize will further a building process which will be carried forward under the direct inspiration of the Hierarchy. The medium will be the potency of the will-to-good of the New Group of World Servers and the responsive goodwill of mankind.

At the time of the full moon festivals, the moon stands on the far side of the earth, away from the sun. This leaves a full, direct and unimpeded relationship between the earth and the sun, the source of our life, energy and consciousness, symbolic of the relationship between the human personality and the soul.

Speaking symbolically, and remembering that symbols always veil a truth, it might be stated that, at the time of the full moon it is as if a door were suddenly opened wide, which at other times stands closed. Through that door, aspirants and disciples can contact energies which are otherwise not easily available. Through that door, approach can be made to Those Who guide the race and to truth and reality, which at other times is not possible. Of this, all who stand on either side of the door can avail themselves, and this will be so increasingly.

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 center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men --
The purpose which the Masters know & serve.

From the center which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love & Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light & Love & Power
restore the Plan on Earth.

The word "men" is used to refer to human beings of both genders.

*In the Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Jewish translations of the Great Invocation, the name by which the Coming One is known in these religions is sometimes used ---the Lord Maitreya, Krishna, the Imam Mahdi, and the Messiah.

Leaves Of Morya's Garden   Book One      The Call
Into the New World my first message.

You who gave the Ashram,
And you who gave two lives,
Builders and warriors, strengthen the steps.
Reader, if you have not grasped — read again,
        after a while.
The predestined is not accidental,
The leaves fall in their time.
And winter is but the harbinger of spring.
All is revealed; all is attainable.
I will cover you with My shield,
        if you but tend to your labors.
I have spoken. 
--- The Agni Yoga books can be freely downloaded (available in seven languages):

There is no salvation surer than that through devotion. One can forgive much where there is unswerving devotion. The man who is devoted in heart can be relied upon. It is cause for rejoicing when Hierarchy is upheld by devotion. At present it is especially needed. If yesterday's confusion seemed enormous, what can one say of tomorrow's? I have already prepared you for the growth of Armageddon, and you know that the black wings of darkness will not withstand the Fiery Sword. Be not astonished, the Battle increases!

Agni Yoga Teachings regarding sex
If we compare two individuals, of whom one dissipates the vital substance while the other consciously conserves it, we will be amazed at how much more sensitive the spiritual apparatus of the second becomes. The quality of his labors becomes entirely different, and the quantity of his projects and ideas multiplies. The centers of the solar plexus and brain are being heated, as it were, by an invisible fire.

Benjamin Creme discusses the emergence of Maitreya, The World Teacher


Maitreya Dancing in Karbala (believe it or not!)


The "Horseman" appears @ 1:23:


Kalki Avatar with the sword of cleavage


"In Hinduism, Kalki (Devanagari: कल्कि; meaning 'Eternity,' 'White Horse,' or 'Destroyer of Filth') is the final incarnation of Vishnu [Maitreya, the World Teacher] in the current Mahayuga, foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga [now!]...the Puranas foretell that Kalki will be atop a white horse with a drawn blazing sword. He is the harbinger of the end time in Hindu eschatology, after which he will usher in Satya Yuga [New Age]." Source: Wikipedia

"When Maitreya comes before the world there will begin for men a period of intense heart-searching and reflection. It is only to be expected that for many it will be a painful, even traumatic, one. So steeped in the ways and ideas of the past, so fearful of a future unknown and strange, are millions today, that men will want to take stock of the new situation which will then pertain…. When Maitreya first announces His plans and hopes for the rehabilitation of the world, His energy of Love – the Sword of Cleavage – will further delineate the divisions which now exist. Men will take sides – for or against the new principles that He will present for the betterment of all. Thus will it be. Thus will a period of discord and discontent precede the acceptance of the new. Gradually, however, even the least sanguine will acknowledge the need for a reconstructed world and add their weight to the task.

"There will begin a time unlike aught seen before on Earth. On every hand and at every level the changes will pursue their logical course, cementing in law and principle and form the aspirations of all. Thus will men regain a hold on their destiny and turn away for ever from the abyss. (The Master -- from ‘Coping with change’) 
The Sword of Cleavage is the energy of Love. As people respond to this energy the world will be divided – those who are clamouring for change along the lines Maitreya is advocating, and those who are fearful and looking to the past, who see Him as the Antichrist, are fearful and do not know what to do. They will stand aside and watch the events, and so lose the opportunity presented, for the first time in history, to take part in the transformation of the world. It is up to each individual, from where he or she stands, to assert their divinity. (Benjamin Creme, The Awakening of Humanity)

"Much that is loved must go. Cling not to the old forms. Much will depend on man’s ability to renounce these outworn structures, and to create a new and simpler world. Remember this. Forget not that I come to change all things. My Coming brings peace. Likewise, My Presence brings cleavage. My Sword, that Love which I am, will separate all men, will show the True from the false, will clear the way for the New Light which I bring. May it be that you can withstand this change and accept My Light. (Maitreya, from Message No.74)

 In an interview with the German author Peter Andreas, the scientist Prof. G. Quispel expresses his amazement that the demonstrably wrong ideas on this subject have not been abandoned:

"I am constantly astonished to see that people still do not appear to know what has been recognized for one and a half centuries: that the beast from the Apocalypse refers to none other than the Caesar, Nero. Only the later Christian church, in the time of Constantine (325 AD), put the Apocalypse into a future, historical time-frame." (From: Was Morgenwahr sein kann, Econ Verlag)
666 -- and other misunderstandings



  • One of the easiest ways to know me, Maitreya says, is to be honest in your mind, be sincere in your spirit, and practice detachment. Any action performed with dishonesty of mind, an insincere spirit and attachment is destructive. For example, when you think one thing, say another, and do something which is different again, you are lost. Honesty of mind leads to honest speech and honest action. This harmony leads to peace and happiness. Without detachment there is no salvation.

  • Be what you are. Do not surrender your self-respect, your dignity, to others. Do not allow anyone to cast his shadow over you. A Master gives experiences, but does not cast his shadow.

  • Do not follow one another. If you practice honesty of mind, sincerity of spirit and detachment, you will know me, you will know the Lord.
