Festival of Humanity

Festival of Humanity

On 5th June we welcome the Full Moon, the day that we celebrate the Festival of Humanity, or the Festival of Goodwill, which occurs every year at the Full Moon while the Sun traverses Gemini.

The Ascended Masters and Spiritual Hierarchy under the direction of Sanat Kumara, Lord Buddha, Lord Maitreya and the Chohans of the Seven Rays celebrate 12 Festivals each year, all occurring on the Full Moon. The Full Moon functions like a window or magnifying glass for the intensification and downpouring of planetary and cosmic energies to disciples, initiates and to the Earth.

The three major Festivals are:

  • Festival of the Christ – Love aspect of God – Hierarchy – Aries – April’s Full Moon
  • Wesak Festival – Will aspect of God – Shamballa – Taurus – May’s Full Moon
  • The Festival of Humanity – Divine Intelligence – Humanity – Gemini – June’s Full Moon

The three major festivals function to build the divine attributes into human consciousness. They function to establish the divine aspects. The divine aspects have to do with the qualities of the first three rays : Power, Love-Wisdom and Active Intelligence. The divine attributes are the qualities of rays four through seven : Harmony, Concrete Science, Devotion and Ceremonial Order and Magic.

The three festivals provide a unique opportunity for people to join together to invoke these forces in a dynamic way. This a beneficial and potent time to meditate, do ceremonies and focus our intentions.

The Festival of Humanity and Good Will


In the solar month of Gemini, at the Full Moon, the Light generated at Wesak is now fully released. The Christ, the Lord of Love, brings an abundant tide of love for Humanity to use as goodwill in establishing rightful world conditions.

The day of this festival is called World Invocation Day, as it celebrates the collective aspiration of humanity to act in harmony with its highest spiritual goals. It is also known as the Festival of the Spirit of Humanity, the Goodwill Festival and the Festival of Unification.

The Goodwill Festival during the full moon of Gemini is the subsequent opportunity for approach to Hierarchy. The Christ stands as the emissary for Humanity and we stand along with him calling out for the energies of Light, Love, and the Will-to-Good which Mother Gaia desperately needs. Our task is to work closely with the Christ, who stands at the “center where the Love of God is known” and invoke, receive and channel this electromagnetic force directly into the planet, stimulating and activating the expression of Goodwill and Right Human Relations in all areas of life. Over time, the significance of this meditation ritual is revealed to those who become more soul attuned and less personality oriented.

The Sun’s transit through Gemini offers opportunity for uniting soul and personality, and vitalizes the changes needed for the evolution of the Christ consciousness by channeling the energy of Love into our solar system, and on to Earth.

The Festival of the Spirit of Humanity aspires toward divinity, atonement to God’s will and right human relationships. It occurs each year at the Full Moon in June. It is a day to recognize and honor the divine nature of humanity and aspire toward spiritual fellowship. This festival represents the effects in human consciousness of the work of Gautama Buddha, Lord Maitreya and the Master Jesus.
The force that is prevalent at this festival is the force of reconstruction. This is the force of the first ray, or will aspect of divinity, that is directly connected with Shamballa. This force is mainly effective between nations of the Earth. Its effect on any given nation is governed by the level of evolution of any particular nation. The two extremes are egocentric nations versus nations focused on world unity. The United Nations is one manifestation of this force in its more positive aspect. The three forces of restoration, enlightenment and reconstruction express the light, love and knowledge of God.


The synthesis of these forces and the effects of these festivals consciously celebrated by humanity will produce the following results, as outlined by Alice Bailey in Serving Humanity:

  1. Power will be given to the disciples and initiates so that they can direct efficiently and wisely the process of rebuilding.
  2. The Will to Love will stimulate men of goodwill everywhere, gradually overcoming hatred. The inner urge in men and women to live together cooperatively already exists and is subject to stimulation.
  3. The Will to Action will lead intelligent people throughout the world to inaugurate those activities which will lay the foundation for a new, better and happier world.
  4. The Will to Cooperate will steadily increase. Men and women will desire and demand right human relationships as a natural way of life.
  5. The Will to Know and to Think Correctly and Creatively will become an outstanding characteristic of the masses. Knowledge is the first step toward wisdom.
  6. The Will to Persist will become a human characteristic, a sublimation of the basic instinct of self-preservation and self-centeredness. This will lead to a persistent belief in the ideals presented by the Spiritual Hierarchy and the demonstration of immortality.
  7. The Will to Organize will further a building process which will be carried forward under the direct inspiration of the Spiritual Hierarchy. The medium will be the potency of the Will to Good of the New Group of World Servers and the responsive goodwill of mankind.

Together, each of the three spiritual Festivals progressively launch, build, and vitalize creative impulses. The Spiritual Hierarchy uses the festivals to strengthen and guide human thought and activity toward spiritual purpose. Their responsibility is to bring the Plan of God into manifestation and they work through the Full Moon opportunities year around, culminating with these three springtime festivals, to awaken humanity to these ends.

The three Full Moon Festivals of spring are destined to become a focal point in the new Aquarian Age, as more and more people of goodwill come together to celebrate that Humanity is One, despite religious or cultural differences.

The twelve annual festival, in concordance with the study of astrology as to their meaning, will provide a complete revelation of divinity to humanity. This will also connect humanity to the understanding of the seven great rays, which underlay even the science of astrology. This approach will also connect humanity to the workings of the Spiritual Hierarchy and ascended masters, leading to the new world religion made manifest on Earth.

Join in and help build and strengthen the channel for the powerful energies which are streaming in to form the framework of the emerging new world.

It is important to dedicate this day to the Ascended Masters and the Spiritual Hierarchy and make a Sacred Ceremony at the exact time of the Full Moon, which will take place on 5th June at 7:12 PM UTC (10:12 PM EEST – Romania time).

What you can include in the Sacred Ceremony:

Short Version of the Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of GOD
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of GOD
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of GOD is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center 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 Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Long Version of the Great Invocation

Let the Forces of Light bring illumination to mankind
Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad
May men of goodwill everywhere meet in a spirit of cooperation
May forgiveness on the part of all men be the keynote at this time.
Let power attend the efforts of the Great Ones
So let it be, and help us to do our part.
Let the Lords of Liberation issue forth
Let Them bring succor to the sons of men
Let the Rider from the Secret Place come forth,
And coming, save
Come forth, O Mighty One.
Let the souls of men awaken to the Light,
And may they stand with massed intent
Let the fiat of the Lord go forth
The end of woe has come!
Come forth, O Mighty One
The hour of service of the Saving Force has now arrived
Let it be spread abroad, O Mighty One.
Let Light and Love and Power and Death
Fulfill the purpose of the Coming One
The will to save is here
The love to carry forth the work is widely spread abroad
The active aid of all who know the truth is also here
Come forth, O Mighty One and blend these three.
Construct a great defending wall
The rule of evil now must end.
From the point of Light within the Mind of GOD
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of GOD
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of GOD is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center 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 Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

The Affirmation of the Disciple

I am a point of light within a greater light
I am a strand of loving energy within the stream of love divine.
I am a point of sacrificial fire, focused within the fiery Will of GOD and thus I stand.
I am a way by which men may achieve.
I am a source of strength enabling them to stand.
I am a beam of light, shining upon their way, and thus I stand.
And standing thus, revolve and tread this way, the ways of men,
And know the ways of GOD. And thus I stand.
I strive toward understanding.
Let wisdom take the place of knowledge in my life.
I strive towards cooperation.
Let the master of my life, the soul, and likewise the one I seek to serve, throw light through me on others.
In the center of the Will of GOD I stand.
Naught shall deflect my will from His.
I implement that will by love.
I turn towards the field of service.
I, the triangle divine, work out that will within the square, and serve my fellow men.
I am a messenger of Light.
I am a pilgrim on the way of Love.
I do not walk alone, but know myself as one with all great souls, and one with them in service.
Their strength is mine. This strength I claim.
My strength is theirs and this I freely give.
A soul, I walk on earth, I represent the One.
I am one with my group of brothers, and all that I have is theirs.
May the love which is in my soul pour forth to them.
May the strength which is in me lift and aid them.
May the thoughts which my soul creates reach and encourage them.
I know the law, and towards the goal I strive.
Naught shall arrest my progress on the way.
Each tiny life within my form responds.
My soul has sounded forth that call, and clearer day by day it sounds.
The glamour holds me not.
The path of light streams clear ahead.
My plea goes forth to reach the hearts of men.
I seek, I try to serve your need. Give me your hand and tread the path with me
The sons of men are one and I am one with them.
I seek to love not hate.
I seek to serve and not exact due service.
I seek to heal not hurt.
Let pain bring due reward of Light and Love.
Let the soul control the outer form and life, and all events, and bring to light the Love which underlies the happenings of the time.
Let vision come and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.
Let Love prevail.
Let all men Love.
We know, oh Lord, of life and love, about the need.
Touch our hearts anew with Love, that we too may love and give.
