What is Wesak?
It was in the 1920’s and 30’s that Djwal Khul (known as the Tibetan), channeled through Alice Bailey, announced that the three primary spiritual festivals of the coming Golden Age would be:
- Easter, the festival of the Christ
(Celebrated on the first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the 21st of March.)
- Wesak, the festival of the Buddha
(Celebrated on the following full moon, usually in May.)
- Festival of Humanity
(Celebrated on the following full moon, usually in June.)
It is recorded that Gautama Buddha was born on the full moon of Wesak. He attained his enlightenment during the full moon of Wesak. And he experienced mahasamahdi (passed on) during the full moon of Wesak.
The esoteric tradition of Wesak marks the time that the Buddha appears over the Wesak Valley in the Himalayas and pours forth a great blessing to all who attend either physically or spiritually. This includes a download of the Divine Plan for the year for the Earth and for individually for all who attend.
What is the ancient lunar month when Wesak is celebrated?
Wesak — also spelled Vesak, Vaishakha (Sanskrit), and Vesakha (Pali) — is the most important of the Theravada Buddhist festivals. The event is observed on the full moon day of the lunar month Vesakha. The date of Vesak changes each year, falling on the date of the first full moon of the ancient lunar month of Vesakha but is always between May and June.
It was only in the early 1950’s that a world conference of various Buddhist Traditions met and decided to have worldwide celebrations and honoring of the Buddha and the Wesak events. Groups around the world celebrate this festival over several months and in a variety of ways.
Interestingly enough, it was also announced about the same time to the metaphysical community that the Buddha had been selected to be the new Planetary Logos, a position held for millennia by Sanat Kumara who volunteered to come to Earth (following the fall) with 144,000 volunteers to hold the light for the Earth until its population could do it for itself.

“We wish to thank all that have contributed to the ongoing sharing of the Wesak Celebration.
We thank Joshua David Stone and all who shared in the successful anchoring of the Wesak celebration for many years in Mount Shasta. We thank Dawn Fazende for 20 years of continuing this tradition. We thank all who have contributed over the years to make this a success.
We thank Alice Bailey and the Ascended Master Djwahl Khul for bringing to public attention the importance of the three major spiritual celebrations for the New Paradigm – Easter, Wesak and the Festival of Humanity. We thank all that are now aware of Wesak and are offering this celebration around the world and continuing to promote it.
And we thank Lord Gautama Buddha for all that he has brought to the Earth and his ongoing care for all life on the Earth, especially his commitment to the well being of all as the new Planetary Logos.”
Many blessings and gratitude,
