“After all, every wish and thought I can utter are summed up in this one sentence, the never-dormant wish of my heart, “Be Theosophists, work for Theosophy!” Theosophy first, and Theosophy last; for its practical realization alone can save the Western world … Theosophy alone can save it from sinking entirely into that mere luxurious materialism in which it will decay and putrefy as civilizations have done. In your hands, brothers, is placed in trust the welfare of the coming century; and great as is the trust, so great is also the responsibility. My own span of life may not be long, and if any of you have gained by my help a glimpse of the True Light, I ask you, in return, to strengthen the Cause by the triumph of which that True Light, made still brighter and more glorious through your individual and collective efforts, will lighten the World….” [H.P. Blavatsky, “Five Messages to the American Theosophists” p. 26, 31]
Members of the Toronto Esoteric Group, one of the study groups at the Toronto Theosophical Society taking part in our WESAK Full Moon meditation celebration on Friday, May 5/2023. We started with a short introduction on the importance of WESAK for humanity, then began our meditation by invoking the Masters of Wisdom, then chanted the mantra of Gautama, the Buddha, finishing with the Great Invocation. Then we had snacks and excellent conversations to finish the celebration.
To introduce, teach, and promote the Esoteric Traditions, both East and West, which will lead to an inner awakening and greater Soul consciousness, which will help us to form a nucleus of the ideal goal of Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or color.
