THE GREAT INVOCATION*
From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts
May the Coming One return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the human race
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 “adapted” wording for the Great Invocation is offered in the hope that it will encourage wider distribution of this world prayer.
World Invocation Day is a world day of prayer and meditation when men and women of every spiritual path join in a universal appeal to divinity and use the Great Invocation. Together they focus the invocative demand of humanity for the light, the love and the spiritual direction needed to build a world of justice, unity and peace.
Just imagine the inner environment flooded with the pulsing rhythm of invocative energy coming from across the planet, following the path of the sun. Imagine this rhythmic use of the Great Invocation spreading virally on the web – introducing new people to the Invocation and allowing them to sense its potency. Imagine how a greatly expanded list of participants in specific time slots will engender a positive momentum, helping to raise the profile of the Great Invocation amongst the vast community of people who value prayer and meditation as a way of service.
Humanity is in crisis
As we begin the new millennium, we face the fact that materialistic values have led humanity to a state of profound crisis. Our very survival is threatened, not only by militarism, but by our lack of wisdom and will to feed the hungry, to share our plentiful resources, and to solve the many other critical problems which confront the human family.
One of the greatest insights of our time is that of the interdependence and interrelatedness of all life
The essence of the spiritual life lies in knowing we are not alone
The world’s problems are of humanity’s making and they are for humanity to solve. But the essence of the spiritual life lies in knowing that we are not alone. The energies of divinity are abundantly available and, on World Invocation Day, an appeal is made for the release of the energies which will enable humanity to create the new civilisation.
The Great Invocation is one of humanity’s most potent tools
Today the reappearance of the World Teacher is expected by millions, by those of every faith who expect the Avatar under such names as the Christ, the Lord Maitreya, Krishna, Messiah, Imam Mahdi and the Bodhisattva. The use of the Great Invocation is one of humanity’s most potent tools in preparing human consciousness for the reappearance of this World Teacher.
To use the Great Invocation is world service for it speaks directly to world need today. We need light to illumine the way ahead and reveal the vision of a new civilisation; we need love to govern the relationships between people and bring to an end the reign of hatred and separatism; we need the power of the will-to-good to direct human choice and decision making. The universal use of the Great Invocation on World Invocation Day charges this day with deep spiritual significance, for it builds a channel through which light, love and power can reach and irradiate the hearts and minds of people everywhere.
The lunar calendar
Most of the festivals of the major world religions are held in accordance with the lunar calendar. The date of World Invocation Day is also determined in this way. It follows on two months from the Christian Festival of Easter and one month from the Buddhist Festival of Wesak. The actual time of the Gemini full moon this year is Friday 9th 11:10pm EST.
Each year, since 1952, people everywhere have celebrated World Invocation Day
Will you join in observing World Invocation Day through the united use of the Great Invocation, and will you join in making this day widely known?
