The Full Moon Wesak Legend


Full Moon Meditation in Taurus

The full moon celebration in the solar month of Taurus is also the celebration of Wesak. Wesak is a festival which takes place in a remote valley in the Himalayas at the full moon of May.

The legend is that in this valley there is a large flat rock upon which rests a great crystal bowl full of water. At the exact time of the full moon, the Buddha blesses the world and the Christ receives the blessing on behalf of humanity adding impetus to the spirit of love and to wisdom renewed. The blessed water in the bowl is then distributed in tiny portions as the participants return to undertake another year of world service. So runs the ancient legend.

At Meditation Mount we also incorporate the water ceremony in our May evening full moon meditation.
