The 12 Festivals of the New World Religion – TPS – English

This year 6.1, the first of a seven-year period dedicated to the 6th Ray energy (Devotion and Abstract Idealism) and to the Idea of ​​a New World Religion, we intend to celebrate the dates of the full moonsthe sacred “doors” of alignment and synchronization between the three celestial symbols of human manifestation (Sun / Soul, Earth / Personality, Moon / Bodies) and planetary (Planetary Hierarchy, Humanity, lower Kingdoms), associating them with 12 Mysteries and Ideas / Formulascorresponding to the causal energies of each Sign of the Zodiac, by virtue of the fact that, for the esoteric perspective, the Heart of Heaven is the Great Master of Masters:

The sequence of the Mysteries which each of the signs of the Zodiac embodies will be clarified for us by the Christ, because the public consciousness today demands something more definite and spiritually real than modern astrology, or all the pseudo-occultism so widely extant.” (A.A. Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 127).

these twelve festivals will also be oriented to the twelve aspects of the Willto assert our humanity center as a planetary Disciple in communion with Heaven, which saturates and creates, with the intent of the common Heart by 12 Directions, the horizon of the future, serving the field of action of the Fourth Human Hierarchy:

“It is the work of the zodiacal influences to evoke the emergence of the will aspect of the Heavenly Man and of all monads, souls and personalities who constitute the planetary body of expression.” (A.A. Bailey, Esoteric Astrology, p. 22)

“(…) the twelve annual festivals will constitute a revelation of divinity. They will present a means of bringing about a relationship, first of all, during three months [of Aries, Taurus e Gemini] with the three great spiritual Centres [Shamballa, Hierarchy and Humanity], the three expressions of the divine Trinity. The minor festivals will emphasize the interrelation of the Whole, thus lifting the divine presentation out of the individual and the personal, into that of the universal divine Purpose; the relationship of the Whole to the part and of the part to that Whole will be thereby fully expressed. (…)

Agents of Transmission Groups (in “The Discipleship of the New Age II”, p. 214)

1. The Festival of Easter. [Aries] 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 spiritual Hierarchy, which He guides and directs, will be recognised 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.

2. The Festival of Wesak. [Taurus] This is the Festival of the Buddha, the spiritual Intermediary between the highest spiritual centre, 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.

3. The Festival of Goodwill. [Gemini] 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 relation. This will be fixed annually in relation to the Full Moon of June. It will be a day whereon the spiritual and divine nature of mankind will be recognised. 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.

These three Festivals are already being kept throughout the world, though they are not as yet related to each other and are a part of the unified spiritual Approach of humanity. The time is coming when all three Festivals will be kept throughout the world and by their means a great spiritual unity will be achieved and the effects of the Great Approach, so close to us at this time, will be stabilized by the united invocation of humanity throughout the planet.

The remaining full moons will constitute lesser festivals but will be recognised to be also of vital importance. They will establish the divine attributes in the consciousness of man, just as the major festivals establish the three divine aspects. These aspects and qualities will be arrived at and determined by a close study of the nature of a particular constellation or constellations influencing those months. For instance, Capricorn will call attention to the first initiation, the birth of the Christ in the cave of the heart, and indicate the training needed to bring about that great spiritual event in the life of the individual man. I give this one instance to you in order to indicate the possibilities for spiritual unfoldment that could be given through an understanding of these influences and in order to revivify the ancient faiths by expanding them into their larger undying relationships.

Thus, the twelve annuals will constitute a revelation of divinity. They will present a means of bringing about a relationship, first of all, during three months with the three great spiritual Centres, the three expressions of the divine Trinity. The minor festivals will emphasize the interrelation of the Whole, thus lifting the divine presentation out of the individual and the personal, into that of the universal divine Purpose; the relationship of the Whole to the part and of the part to that Whole will be thereby fully expressed.

Humanity will, therefore, invoke the spiritual power of the Kingdom of God, the Hierarchy; the Hierarchy will respond, and God’s plans will then be worked out on earth. The Hierarchy, on a higher turn of the spiral will invoke the “Center where the Will of God is known,” thus invoking the Purpose of God. Thus will the Will of God be implemented by Love and manifested intelligently; for this mankind is ready, and for this the Earth waits.

To sum up therefore: on the basis of the fundamental truth already recognised the new world religion will be built.

The definition of religion which will in the future prove of greater accuracy than any yet formulated by the theologians might be expressed as follows:

Religion is the name given to the invocative appeal of humanity and the evocative response of the greater Life to that cry.

It is, in fact, the recognition by the part of its relationship to the Whole, plus a constantly growing demand for increased awareness of that relation.

(…) Workers in the field of religion will formulate the universal platform of the new world religion. It is a work of loving synthesis and will emphasize the unity and the fellowship of the spirit. This group is, in a pronounced sense, a channel for the activities of the Christ, the world teacher. The platform of the new world religion will be built by many groups, working under the inspiration of the Christ.

(…) Nothing under heaven can arrest the progress of the human soul on its long pilgrimage, from darkness to light, from the unreal to the real, from death to immortality and from ignorance to wisdom. (…) God works in many ways, through many faiths and religious agencies; This is one reason for the elimination of non-essential doctrines. By the emphasis of the essential doctrines and in their union will the fullness of truth be revealed. This, the new world religion will do and its implementation will proceed apace, after the reappearance of the Christ. (A.A. Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 155-9).
