May Call Celebration 2018 in Neckarelz, Germany

By Luphil

Last week there was an international May Call celebration in the Bildungshaus Neckarelz, in South Germany – a beautiful place near the river Neckar. It was conducted under the auspices of WTT Germany and organised by the WTT group of Lake Constance. The group life started on Sunday but we, a small group, came already on Saturday for preparation. The May Call Day meetings are always very inspiring; last year we had met in the Vosges, France.

The team of the Bildungshaus (education center) of the Catholic church was very welcoming and we enjoyed the preparation work very much. Elli and Peter had brought about 60 little audumbara trees – sacred trees related to the energy of Lord Dattatreya – which Elli had nursed from the seeds I had received at the birth place of Sripada last year.

Sunday afternoon all 60 group members had arrived – from Austria, Belgium, France, Switzerland and from various parts of Germany. Manfred and Sabine had organised the group life and the program had many facets – besides the morning and evening meditations there were a water and a fire ritual, yoga and qigong exercises, talks about various topics: a short introduction to NLP, Sacred Geometry and the mystics behind numbers, Blavatsky’s influence on the art of the 20th century, an innovative project of community living and about Master CVV, the comet tail and the energy of synthesis.

May Call Day itself, Tuesday, 29 May, started with meditation followed by a fire ritual in the amphitheater at the Temple House church. With the singing of mantrams, Agni, the deva of fire, was invoked and all of us offered a stick of wood into the fire.

Later, I could give an introduction to the significance of the May Call, and this was followed by the cake ritual and distribution of presents – the audumbara trees, natural ointments prepared by the Lake Constance group, honey, bookmarks and crystals. Since we could not do a candle ritual inside, the group formed the symbol of perfection, the symbol of WTT, with white roses.

In the evening, after some musical presentations and reading of poems by Tamara we gathered outside with candles in a big circle and sung some songs – a magical moment, with Venus shining above the dark trees.

Wednesday morning I spoke about “The Unusual Ones – Jewels of the Divine”. I had prepared a presentation with 10 short sketches of extraordinary Indian saints and yogis but time allowed only 6 ones. With a review and an outlook on how to continue with the May Call celebration this very uplifting meeting ended.
The same small group which had arrived one day before the group life stayed one more night to slowly conclude and reflect on the events. A touching time.
