Winter Spiritual Celebrations 2004-2005
The Winter spiritual celebrations play a very important part in the Mission. They are the culmination of the spiritual activities of the Autumn-Winter season and balance perfectly the culmination in the Spring-Summer season - the Summer Assembly in the Rila Mountains. In both culminations we have an activation of the whole Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem but from different perspectives – going inwardly, into the mystical depths of our Souls and Spirits in the Winter and outwardly, radiating the Mandala energy into the world, in the Summer.
In the metaphysics of the Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem, at Christmas we celebrate the mystery of the coming of Christ who opens the Northern Universal Gate of the Heavenly Jerusalem and turns the wheel of involution into evolution. On December 27 we celebrate the opening of the Eastern Universal Gate of the cosmic spiritual Spring by the Divine Master Beinsa Douno. In the New Year's Eve celebration, through a big Mandala Meditation, we activate the whole Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem in order to experience the unity of all spiritual traditions. On January 6, the Orthodox Christian festival of Bogoiavlenie (the baptising of Jesus in the River Jordan) we celebrate the opening of the Southern Universal Gate of the cosmic spiritual Summer by the Holy Spirit and the entry into the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth.
This year however our goal was to integrate all these celebrations in the stream of the Second Coming of the Divine Masters, of the Divine Wedding in Heaven, of the New Pentecost and the descent of the Holy Spirit.
December 24-25, 2004 - Christmas Celebration
Our Christmas celebration this winter was consecrated to the mystery of the Second Coming of Christ and the New Mission of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In deep prayer and meditation we prepared ourselves to become reborn from the Divine Rainbow Body of Light of the Blessed Virgin Mary and to be baptised by the Cosmic Christ in the name of the Cosmic-spiritual Cross of Immortality.
Through the centuries the image of Our Lady has been shining brighter and brighter and now she is even considered as a co-redeemer with Christ. In the Litany of the Blessed Virgin there are fifty beautiful characteristics of Our Lady which are not only a sign of praise, love and devotion, but have deep cosmological significance as well. Let us quote some of them: Mirror of Justice, Seat of Wisdom, Cause of our Joy, Spiritual Vessel, Mystical Rose, Tower of David, Tower of Ivory, House of Gold, Ark of the Covenant, Gate of Heaven, Morning Star, Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners, Queen of Angels, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, Queen of Peace.
Truly, Our Lady personifies the universal characteristics and the celestial virtues of the Divine Mother. If Jesus Christ was an incarnation of Divinity into flesh, we can imagine the extraordinary mission of Our Lady as a manifestation of the Divine Mother giving birth to the Son of God.
For centuries the mystery of God the Son has been the subject of inspired reflections, contemplations and revelations, but now the time is coming to appreciate more and more the mystery of Our Lady giving birth to Jesus Christ and manifesting the cosmological significance of the Divine Mother.
In our epoch the Blessed Virgin Mary is revered by millions of people on earth as the Mother of all nations. So, in deep prayer and meditation we tried to merge with the cosmic body of Living Light of the Divine Mother, shining with all colours of the Rainbow, and to be reborn from Her Divine Rainbow body. It is not by chance that in the spiritual tradition of the American Indians, and in some other traditions as well, the enlightened human beings are called Rainbow People.
The new Mission of the Blessed Virgin Mary is to give birth to the heavenly transfigured body of all humankind as Sons and Daughters of Divine Light. And when the human beings are reborn spiritually of the Divine Mother and receive the new baptising by the Cosmic Christ, then they will develop themselves as Divine Temples in which the Holy Spirit will come to remain forever.
Christmas Day was consecrated to the mystery of the Second Coming and the New Baptising by the Cosmic Christ.
We are living in the time of the Second Coming of Christ. He is appearing in the etheric layer as the glorious and victorious Christ who shines brighter than the Sun and reveals the transcendent Divine Truth about God, Creation, and the human being made in the image and likeness of God. He sends his angels to gather the chosen people from the four corners of the Earth who have to embark on the Path of Ascent, to receive the seven blessings of the Cosmic Christ and to enter into the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth.
The great initiate Rudolf Steiner predicted the Second Coming of Christ for the end of the 20th century:
"In accordance with the inner nature of the Christ event the one who lived two thousand years ago as Jesus Christ in a physical body, now even before the end of the century will appear before people but this time in etheric clothes as he appeared to Paul before the gate of Damascus". (Re: Acts 9: 3-4) "In essence here we are speaking about the Second Coming of Christ"
(Rudolf Steiner, The Gospel of St. Matthew, page 228, Bulgarian book).
Developing further the idea of Rudolf Steiner about the Second Coming of Christ, now, at the beginning of the 21st century, we could experience another vision - that of St. John from the Book of Revelation. For us the Second Coming of Christ will not be what happened to Saul and his conversion into Paul, but what happened to John, the great vision of Christ and the subsequent visions contained in the Book of Revelation. (Revelation: "A vision of Christ", Ch. 1: 10-20). Actually after this vision of Christ, St.John was able to contemplate the essence of Creation, the spiritual history of humankind, the mystery of the First and Second Comings of Christ, up to the entry of humankind into the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth.
So, at Christmas, through appropriate prayers, spiritual formulas, readings, music, meditation, we contemplated the Cosmic Christ as He appeared before St. John. In our inspiring prayer-meditation we were able to have glimpses of the Second Coming of Christ and to receive blessings from Him in the name of the cosmic-spiritual Cross of Immortality, i.e. to see the New Reality, which the Lord God Almighty, “Who makes all things new”, is revealing through Christ.
December 27, 2004 The Day of the Master Beinsa Douno (Peter Deunov)
Meeting the New Manifestation of the World Teacher Beinsa Douno (Peter Deunov). December 27, was the 60th anniversary of the ascension to Heaven by the great Bulgarian Master Beinsa Douno. In the book, The Master, as motto to the second part, Ideas, are the following very emotional, prophetic words:
"As a majestic Sun sets, after it gave to everyone its abundance as a gift of love, so the Master Beinsa Douno “set” on December 27, 1944 for the physical world so that he will rise in the souls of all humankind. His word is alive, it fills the air and now knocks on all minds and hearts telling them the good news of the beauty of the rising culture which is coming with strong steps towards us!"
(The Master, page 112).
In accordance with these prophetic words the group linked with the Master Beinsa Douno as a personification of the cosmic-spiritual Sun rising in the epoch of the Cosmic Spring and awakening humankind for the blossoming of the souls and the entry into the Garden of Paradise.
The celebration of this special day included prayers, spiritual formulas and songs by the Master Beinsa Douno aiming at our ascent to the top of the Sacred Mountain. From there we entered through the Eastern Universal Gate into the Heavenly Jerusalem to experience the new Solar Culture and the New Manifestation of the World Teacher Beinsa Douno. In the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem, in front of the Throne of God, we prayed and meditated to establish a mystical contact with the Master, radiating from the cosmic-spiritual Sun, and to receive his new initiation.
In his New Manifestation the Master will continue his Divinely inspired work and will reveal the great esoteric depths of his teaching which are 'coded' in the Paneurhythmy, The Testament of the Colour Rays of Light, The Pentagram, in his Living Word and Celestial Music. Radiating from the Throne of God, the Master will work for the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth and will open a new type of Divine school - a Celestial University on Earth. In it we will have the opportunity for great cosmic-spiritual studies which integrate many different paths and continue the spiritual school on a new cosmic-spiritual level. Thus the New Manifestation of the World Teacher Beinsa Douno will introduce the path of 'heavenly interns' and collaborators with the Living God.
December 31, 2004 New Year's Eve celebration
In accordance with a well established tradition the group meets New Year's Eve in the Centre, in Sofia, around a picturesque Mandala formed with candles, spiritual pictures, prayer books and holy scriptures representing all world religions. In a Mandala meditation lasting 1 hour and 50 minutes we linked with the followers of all world religions and started the ascent to the Centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem. There, in deep prayer and meditation, our aim was to participate in the Divine Service around the Throne of God performed by the Divine Masters themselves and the Manifestations of the Divine Feminine connected with them. Praise and thanks be to the Lord, we were greatly blessed.
January 6, 2005 – Bogoyavlenie
Another well established tradition in the Second Coming Integral Mission is to celebrate the great Christian Festival Bogoyavlenie (the baptising of Jesus in the River Jordan) as a mystical baptising in "the River of the water of Life, sparkling like crystal, and coming down from the Throne of God and of the Lamb and flowing down the middle of the city's street" (Revelation 22: 1-2). It becomes a celebration of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon us. For this purpose we prepared ourselves to ascend through the whole vertical structure of Creation. The baptising itself is to link with the “blazing seven lamps, which are the seven spirits of God” (Revelation 4:5) and to receive the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
All celebrations in our Winter 'Assembly' gave great spiritual fruits and mystical food for the months ahead.
