The Aquarian Age Community
The Great Invocation is a sacred mantra, derived from seven ancient word forms, held in trust by the Masters of Light, Love and Power. Although it is thousands of years old, it was given to humanity for daily use in 1945.
It has since been translated into more than 70 languages and it is today used by countless millions of people of all religions, or of none; it is distinctive of our unfolding Aquarian Age.
Each of the stanzas refers to a different dimension of consciousness and so it is helpful to pause at the end of each one, and take the opportunity to focus on the centers of Light, Love and Purpose. In the last stanza, we strive to radiate these energies into the consciousness of the whole human race.
The mantric power of the words and the phrases used in the Great Invocation create a rhythmic vibration, invoking spiritual energies and Great Beings of Light, Love and Power. Thus, each word is sounded intentionally and with as much awareness and mindfulness as possible.
Many religions believe in a World Teacher—a Coming One who is to reappear, as has been the case throughout the history of humanity. This Coming One is known by such names as the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Bodhisattva, the Messiah, the True Aquarian and the Kalki Avatar—just to acknowledge a few of the names by which this Spiritual Teacher is known.
In the English version of the Great Invocation, which is the original language in which this Invocation was given to humanity, the term Christ is used for this Coming One. And, it may be of interest to note that in the ancient archives, before Christianity came to be, this term was a title, attributed to the One, Who at any given time holds the title of the World Spiritual Teacher—the purified or Initiated One.
Just as the title of Buddha was given to Siddhartha Gautama as a recognition of attainment, indicating his ability to access buddhic consciousness, so the Christ is a title, recognizing the attainment of the 7th degree of initiation and indicating the highest pinnacle of love-wisdom—a love so inclusive that It encompasses the souls of all life on the planet.
When this center of Love-Wisdom is awakened within each human being—to any degree whatsoever—it’s as if a vibrant, imaginary Lighted thread connects that individual to the planetary Christ—the focal point of all Love-Wisdom for the planet.
It is for this reason that all spiritual seekers as well as all of the major world religions look to this Great Being, knowing Him through their own traditions.
Christ—as a word and title has great esoteric significance and radiates its own powerful numeric vibration.
The word "man" in the Great Invocation is a derivative of the Sanskrit term, Manas, which refers to the mental principle—the positive element that characterizes humanity, emphasizing the fact that humanity is able to THINK and use the mind, distinguishing it from the other three kingdoms it is meant to protect and nurture.
It is of great benefit to sound the Great Invocation daily to aid in the invocation and evocation of the divine solar and cosmic energies of Light, Love and the Will-to-Good for the benefit of all life on our planet. Will you join the many who use this sacred mantra daily?
In this video, the Great Invocation is presented in the six official languages of the United Nations. At this time in the history of humanity, we look to the United Nations—not as a perfect institution; (Is a perfect institution at this time of human limitation and imperfection possible?) rather, we look to the United Nations as the best hope of humanity.
In its daily work and in its objectives and goals, as expressed, for example, in its founding Charter, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the eight Millennium Development Goals agreed upon at the turn of the millennium, the United Nations seeks to uplift the quality of life on our planet by promoting social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom for all life on our planet.
For further information, you can visit the web site of the United Nations.
You are also invited to visit the web pages of the Aquarian Age Community, which includes information on the spiritual work of the United Nations and on the meditation initiative entitled, "The Spiritual Work of the United Nations and the Liberation of Humanity.” A meditation outline to aid in this work is available upon request in many languages, including Russian.
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 centre 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 centre 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 spiritual organization The Aquarian Age Community according to contemporary times, performed a very important function in creating a video, in which the Great Invocation was sounded in the six official languages of the UN. We are very pleased that we were able to participate in this work, and we wish to thank the staff of the Aquarian Age Community for the opportunity to read the Great Invocation in Russian.
