The Great Invocation A World Prayer by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul

The Great Invocation
A World Prayer by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul

What is the Great Invocation?
The Great Invocation is a World Prayer, an invocation for light and love, and is used globally as act of service to humanity to aid the Plan of God to find full expression on Earth.

Two versions are presented here - the original version released in 1945 by Alice Bailey and The Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, and the newer adapted version to accommodate the world's changing consciousness.

Original 1945 Version
by Alice A Bailey & Djwhal Khul...


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.

Adapted 2000 Version
by the Lucis Trust...


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.


Note on the adapted version:

The 'offending' words which were modified are:
- "man". (This word is actually Sanskrit for 'one who thinks')
- "Christ" (This word actually refers to divine consciousness)
The adapted version replaced "man" and "Christ" with to a general misunderstanding of the true meaning of these words by many, which caused 'objections'. The words were modified so that they preserved their original meaning and intent, whilst making it more 'palatable' for some.

The Gods and Goddesses of the Celtic Lands

The Gods and Goddesses of the Celtic Lands

The Celts were very religious and believed in reincarnation and the migration of the soul to the after life after death. They did not believe in punishment after death. The Celtic Pantheon held many female deities of primary importance ranging from war goddesses to mother goddesses to ruling goddesses. They also believed in 3 aspects of the God/dess, three aspects of a single god. The teachings of the Druids could be summed up quite easily: worship the gods, be strong, courageous and do no evil. Human sacrifices by the blade, burning, or drowning were done because it was believed that a life must be given for a life, as in murder, accidental killing, extreme illness, or to be spared from the horrors of battle. Generally, those who were killed were prisoners of war or criminals. This practice does not, however, seem to have been used much at all in Ireland and Britain.
Female were equal to males and held just as much power. The Priestesses were highly revered. Priestesses sang the dying to sleep, did charms, enchantments, prophecies, healing, etc. They knew the power of words, stones and herbs. One of the central features of their Groves was a cauldron, bowl or pool. Curses were cast for any mistreatment of women. Red-hair females were sacred to the war Goddesses, as their hair was the color of blood.

This legend shows how Pagans saw the Mother Goddess as a source of regeneration and life renewel. Cessair’s “I was here first” image was so strong among Irish Pagans that when the Christians could not eliminate her, they made her the granddaughter of their flood savior, Noah. Because the native myths say Ireland was spared by the ravages of the great flood, Cessair perhaps was once seen as a water deity who had the power to save Ireland from the flood.

A stray mayfly, containing the “soul” of Lugh, fell into her wine glass. When she drank it she became impregnated with Cuchulain. However, she birthed Cuchulain by throwing him up and therefore always remaind a “maiden.” Described as a woman of “large proportions,” a detail which reveals she had attributes of a mother, fertility and abundance Goddess. She could shape-shift herself and her followers into birds for swift travel and, predictably, they could fly to the Otherworld and back in this form.

The Lady Of the Lake
Location: Wales, Britain
Description: To some she is a faery woman, to others she is a potent deity of life, death and regeneration. She was the possessor of the sword Excalibur (called Caliburn in Brittany), the magickal blade given to King Arthur. A Sovereign Goddess, it is this act of taking the offered sword which grants Arthur the right to rule, and it is she who claims the blade again, when his role as sacrificial king must be fulfilled. The Bretons claim she was a Breton addition to the Arthurian legends and that she never appeared in the original Welsh versions of the myths. Contradictory to the “sword in the churchyard stone” stories, the Breton version tells us that Merlin and Arthur rowed out to the center of the Dosmary Lake in Cornwall and that it was there that Excalibur was presented to him, the sword embedded in a floating stone. When he pulled it out, it was an act of reversal of the Great Rite, separating the female and male concepts of creation which were not to be united again until Arthur’s death. The Lady of the Lake is also said to have been the foster mother of Sir Lancelot, one of Arthurs knights, also a Breton addition to the tale. She is pictured as sitting on a throne of reeds in the center of the lake’s depths. Among her MANY magickal credits is that of a healer. She is associated with the crane, water lilies and marble.
