Aries Solar Festival - Easter Festival
'The Easter Festival
And so again we have come to the Aries Full Moon, strong and gracious in all its glory. Our Lord Maitreya renews nature yet again. The deva kingdom sends its healers, its builders, its small creators into nature to soothe it, to heal it, to enhance it. The angels of the Christed One envelop nature in their auric emanations of gold and white. Nature is aglow. It waits for the Risen One to descend His Radiance into it. This night is enchanted: the Christ is coming like a wind of tiny golden flames. His Love overwhelms us once more, and we sigh as the Blessings of Him are felt all over the thirsty planet. We stand still. We hardly breathe. We receive Him. We partake of Him. We are reborn as nature is reborn each year, by His Mercy. We stand still. We hardly breathe. We feel Him. He is so close. We bow our heads and become silent like the adoring creatures of nature which all look to Him as their Redeemer.’

Reading of The Great Invocation**
'From the point of Light within the Mind of God,
There appears Maitreya as the Son of the Sun.
Let His Light stream forth into the minds of men,
Let His Light stream forth on Earth.
Redeemer, Thou hast come.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God,
There comes Maitreya, the Lord of Love.
Let His Love stream forth into the hearts of men,
Christ the Risen One is here on Earth.
From the Centre where the Will of God is known,
Let the Avatar of Synthesis guide the wills of men.
Maitreya, Your Purpose is clear.
Avatar of Synthesis, make Yourself known.
We serve You, Masters of the Light.
From the Centre which we call the race of men,
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Maitreya restore the Plan on Earth.
Let His Light, Love, and Power be with you.'
**The Great Invocation as given by the Christ to the Lord D.K. has been rewritten
by the Christ through Ananda Tara Shan, making it more in keeping with the times.
Thank you very much for your participation.
May you continue to be filled with inner balance, strength, and respectfulness!
Have a blessed and joyous Easter!
