38TH ANNUAL CONFFERENCE INFORMATION

The Aquarian Christ ~ The Coming Avatar of Love ~

The Conference has concluded.  We thank you for your attendance and support

Seven Rays control our local cosmos and solar system, subjectively and tangibly. Every USR/SRI/Morya Federation Conference has had a focus on one of the Seven Rays. With this year’s focus upon The Christ ~ the Bodhisattva, the great Second Ray energy that streams “the Heart of Divine Love” through the sign Gemini, will carry our central theme.

“The birth of the Christ-child upon the physical plane is the consummating glory of the Gemini force.” EA, 278

The keynotes of illumination, of vision, of sight or of spiritual perception and of the fusion of the occidental or the mystic way are dominant in this cycle. The Buddha summed up in Himself all the light of the past as far as humanity was concerned. He was the culminating Messenger, and demonstrated the innate possibilities of mankind, radiating the light of wisdom in relation to the light of substance and producing that dual blaze or flaming light which had been fanned and fostered (though not fully expressed) by humanity up to that time. He came forth as the flower or fruition of the past and as the guarantee of man’s innate capacity.”

Christ, whilst also able to say “I am the light of the world,” went further in His manifestation and gave a vision of the next step, demonstrating the light of the soul and pointing to the future, thus presenting that which could be because He had released on Earth the cosmic principle of love. Love is an aspect of the will, which is a point very little realized by the mass of [humanity]. It is the will to draw into itself or the will to attract into itself, and this will, when exerted toward that which is not material, we, in reaction to the differentiating mind, call Love. But humanity has to see that which must be loved before that power of the will is sufficiently evoked. Then the vision can become a manifestation and a fact in expression.

It is here that the wonder of the work of Christ, the Lord of Love, emerges into our consciousness. He makes it very clear that this love which He demonstrated was an aspect of the will, functioning through the medium of the second ray; this powerful love released into the world the cosmic principle of love.EA, 623/4

“Because the Ray of Love-Wisdom, the second ray, pours through Gemini, it becomes apparent how true is the [esoteric] teaching that love underlies the entire universe. God is love, we are assured, and this statement is both an exoteric and an esoteric truth.

“This underlying love of Deity reaches our solar system primarily through Gemini, which forms, with the constellation of the Great Bear and the Pleiades, a cosmic triangle. This is the triangle of the cosmic Christ and is the esoteric symbol lying behind the cosmic Cross. There is ever the eternal triangle to be found behind the fourfold phenomenal appearance. Speaking symbolically and in the words of the Old Commentary:

“Upon the golden triangle, the cosmic Christ appeared; His head in Gemini; one foot upon the field of the Seven Fathers and the other planted in the field of the Seven Mothers (these two constellations are sometimes called the Seven Brothers and the Seven Sisters. A.A.B.). Thus for aeons, the Great One stood, His consciousness in-turned, aware of three but not of four. Intent, with suddenness, He heard a sound go forth…. Arousing to that cry, He stretched Himself, reached forth both arms in understanding love, and, lo, the Cross was formed. … ” EA, 348/9

“The Christ, the Representative of the love of God, has again “set His Face to go up to Jerusalem” (Luke IX. 51); He will again appear and guide mankind into a civilization and a state of consciousness in which right human relations and worldwide cooperation for the good of all will be the universal keynote.” EXT, 610

Friends, throughout this conference, let us enter the Spirit of the Living Christ and discover how each of us, as a group and as groups, can more wholly participate in manifesting the Christ Principle and the imminence of the Coming Avatar of Love!

Sacred Ceremonial Workshop

May 20-23, 2024

Ashramic Cycles: Festival of the Christ

This year we have an auspicious possibility and spiritually historical moment for having the “last” Gemini Full Moon (during “the Stage of the Forerunner”) going inside with the Ceremonial workshop days. We will extend our Workshop in the ceremonial aspect with one day and follow the whole three days approach to the Full Moon of Gemini as Master Djwhal Khul has described.

Gemini.—This is the force which produces the changes needed for the evolution of the Christ consciousness at any particular point in time and space. It is always compatible to the requirement.

R&I 88-89
At the time of the June Full Moon, each year, the love of God, the spiritual essence of solar fire, reaches its highest point of expression. This it achieves through the instrumentality of the Hierarchy, that great group of souls which has ever been the custodian of the principle of light, of enlightened love, and which always—down the ages—focusses its attention upon the race of men when the spiritual influence is at its height. This it does through one of the great Sons of God. The Full Moon of June of 1943 saw this outpouring of divine love reach its highest expression for all time, and at the point of attainment which is, for that particular Son of God, His highest also. Such is the Law. When an embodied Christ in time and space reaches His goal of achievement, recognition of this comes to Him at the time of the June Full Moon, for in that sign of Gemini the complete victory of life over form, and of spirit over matter, is consummated and celebrated.

ExH 555
Festival of June: Keynotes

The Festival of June which is so uniquely Christ’s, and which emphasises His relationship to humanity, in reality covers three whole days, each with a different keynote:

20MAY
1. The keynote of Love in its hierarchical sense—free from sentiment, emotion and personal emphasis—a love that sacrifices and understands, that acts with strength and decision, and that works on behalf of the whole and not in the interests of any group or individual.

21MAY
2. The keynote of Resurrection, emphasising the new note of livingness, of the living Christ and of that “life more abundantly” which the war has made possible by forcing a return to the real values.

22MAY
3. The keynote of Contact, of a closer relation between Christ and His people, between the Hierarchy and Humanity.

ExH 643
This outpouring of spiritual energy passes through the groups or (to use a technical word which is relatively unimportant) through the Ashrams of all the Masters of the Wisdom, the Disciples of the Christ. It is then transformed or transmuted by them so as to meet adequately the needs of the different types of people who compose humanity and who are represented in the Ashrams by different Masters. Through all the Masters and through all disciples this energy passes, so that all—at their many different stages—may receive the needed stimulation. They precipitate certain specialised aspects of this newly received energy, and they therefore will be peculiarly active in the coming period.

Wesak Full Moon

Festival of the Christ

May 23, 2023

Festival & World Invocation Day

EXH 556
The result of this solemn three days of invocation will be followed by a climaxing day wherein the Hierarchy will unitedly, and led by the Christ, pronounce the entire Invocation, prefacing each stanza with its appropriate keynote, again sounded in unison. These notes you cannot know, but if, for instance, a very large number of the New Group of World Servers were brought together, their united OM might approximate the appropriate keynote.

Read Full Description

World Invocation Day has been celebrated on the day of the Gemini full moon since 1952. The Great Invocation is used to invoke spiritual energies of Light, Love and Purpose. World Invocation Day is a day of prayer, of focused spiritual contact, when people of all faiths and spiritual paths join together to make an invocative appeal to Divinity. This spiritual approach, through the sounding of the Great Invocation, calls for light and love and power to flow into human consciousness so that the soul of humanity could be born.

EXH 155-156
The Festival of Goodwill. 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.

World Invocation Day and the Festival of Goodwill on the Full Moon Day in Gemini is the day of deep annual meditative work by disciples in all faiths.
It is a global call by all the goodwill men and women of every spiritual paths to join in a universal appeal to divinity. We will have during the Full Moon Day a special 24 hours vigil sounding the Great Invocation around the globe in different languages – creating a huge invocation by humanity (who we are) to the Holy Ones – as the *last* Gemini-mark of the Forerunner before 2025.

Esoteric Astrology Workshop

May 24-26, 2024

The Service of the Soul:
Utilizing the Highest Expression of Love-Wisdom in Our Astrological Chart

“Potentials for ever-fuller service can be revealed by the Rising-sign, which leads towards greater soul-expression; Neptune, the planet of the Christ; Jupiter, expressing expansive love-wisdom and universality – the quality of Aquarius; Venus, *the planet of the Solar Angels* intimately related to one’s soul nature; and Uranus, the Great Aquarian Planet, orthodox ruler of Aquarius and hierarchical ruler of Aries. The locations of these planets (and others!) in our astrological charts will be examined during this workshop.”

Seven Ray Seminar

May 26-28, 2024

Unveiling the Christ Principle through the Seven Laws of the Soul

This year in the USR-SRI Conference we focus upon the second aspect of Divinity. We are studying the Christ principle elaborated by the Tibetan Teacher in its growing presence in the human kingdom.

In this workshop the Rayology team will explore the Seven Laws of the Soul as they demonstrate through the seven rays. In addition to presentations on each of the laws, we will have breakout groups for further discussion and to answer any questions that come up during the presentations.

DK says, “The teaching has always been given in terms of good behavior and of right action, and therefore given in terms of effects, produced by inner causes which have not always been specified. Basically, all such virtues, good inclinations and attempted sound qualities represent the emergence into expression upon the physical plane of certain energies and tendencies, inherent in the soul itself. These, in their turn, are governed by energies and laws which are of a nature different from those governing personalities.” (EP2, p.85)

Note: for anyone who is new to the Seven Rays, please watch the video Introduction to the Seven Rays presented by Eva Smith. The video is 52 minutes long and gives a brief overview on the origin of the Seven Rays, their flow into our solar system. Eva explains the nature of the three Rays of Aspect (Rays 1, 2, and 3) and the four Rays of Attribute (Rays 4, 5, 6, and 7). She then goes into detail for each ray, describing its quality, keywords related to that ray, and presents evocative images of the rays.
