The May Call Day
“Meditation is not a doing, but a happening”
On 29 May 1910, Master CVV began distributing the Energy of Synthesis, which he had received from higher circles, to the planet and the planetary beings. Since then every 29th May is celebrated as the day for group initiation. It is popularly called the “May Call Day”.

The Aquarian Age
Every 2160 years, when the equinox enters into a new sign, a new age starts. The Aquarian age began in the year 1837 with the regency of Queen Victoria. A great trailblazer of the new age was Madam Blavatsky, born 1831. She declared that at the beginning of the 20th century a very great energy of the rank of an avatar would descend onto the planet to uplift humanity. She could give this prophecy because she had access to the divine worlds. After her transition and based on her vision, some of her followers, like Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant, prepared a very pure soul, Jiddu Krishnamurti, for the reception of this energy.
Descent of the Energy of Synthesis
But the ways of the Divine were otherwise. In higher circles it was known that the approaching Energy of Synthesis would profoundly transform the earth and the beings living on it and speed up the evolution; it would be too strong for an ordinary human being to receive it. This event is incomparable with anything that has happened on the planet so far. It reminds of the downpour of the energy of Ganga described in the Puranas, which could be received by Lord Shiva only. Thus it was decided in the higher circles that the Energy of Synthesis could only be received by the ashram of Agastya. Agastya, also called Master Jupiter, is the eldest of the Masters of Hierarchy. He comes to the rescue at times of crises which cannot be mastered by others.
Thus an advanced disciple from the ashram of Agastya incarnated 42 years before the advent of the energy in Kumbhakonam, a small South Indian town. Its name means “Aquarian angle”; during the previous Aquarian age the Aquarian energy has already descended there. On 4 August 1868 Master CVV was born in Kumbhakonam as Canchupati Venkatarao Venkaswamy Rao. At a very early age, he already mastered the various branches of the Vedas, spoke several languages such as Sanskrit and English, and was a very magnetic person. He was the mayor of Kumbhakonam and the leading people of the area mostly passed their time close to him. He also was a good musician who often sang at the banks of the river Cauvery. He already was a master, and while leading a splendorous life in the outer, he waited in the inner for the advent of the energies.
On 31 March 1910 the tail of Halley’s Comet touched the earth. When at midnight the concentrated energies guided by the Great Bear, the Pleiades and Sirius, were transmitted to Master CVV, he sat awake and ready in a front room of his house. With a huge lightning and thunder the energy entered into the house. The people of the surrounding rushed to the house, because they thought the building had been destroyed and its inhabitants killed. However, they found the Master in deep contemplation, and he was radiating bright light. They then withdrew. In the morning they visited him and asked him for an explanation. The Master said, “The energies of the New Age have come. I have called them into me and after due time I will distribute them to humanity.”
After having received the energies, he started to work with them. He conducted many experiments to understand their purpose. The main purpose of the visit of the Aquarian energy is to lift the people up from the gross material inclinations to the planes of Light. For this the energy will conduct the necessary transformations of the matter. These transformations finally will lead the living beings to the etheric plane. They will experience the deathlessness and the continuity of awareness beyond the incarnations and will be able to fly with the help of the etheric body. The energy speeds up the evolution on all planes, in the mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms.
Until 28th May the Master worked with the energies inside. People considered his behavior very strange: when he walked through the streets, the people had the impression that he was floating and that he did not touch the ground. They discovered that he inhaled for six hours, held his breath for six hours and then exhaled for six hours.
May Call Day – Distributing the Energy
On 29th May 1910, he gathered six persons and started to initiate them into the energy and to distribute the energy. Since then every 29th May is celebrated as the day for group initiation. It is popularly called the “May Call Day”. Master CVV said that on every 29th May, the MASTER may call those who wish to get into the Energies of Synthesis. Besides the May Call, the Master also arranged gatherings for “December Call” on 29th December.
The Sound Key
From May Call 1910, he accepted certain people as transmitting vehicles for the energy, his “mediums”. He gave the Yogic letters “C.V.V.” as the password. He established the three letters as the symbolic sound keys to alert and stimulate the sound vibrations in space, which correspond to the magnetic force of the Earth. In the beginning, he gave the mantra “MASTER NAMASKARAM“. After some time the Master energy suggested that he may give the Mantra as ‘MASTER CVV NAMASKARAM’. Master here means the energy that has descended from the Most High. Subsequently, “Master MN Namaskaram” and “Master EK Namaskaram” were added.
He gave the technique to the interested friends who asked for it. For many it was very strange what he said and did. He said that his work is global, he transmits the energy to the entire planet: “It first goes to the West and then it will come back to East. It goes to Europe, then to South America and to North America and later it will come back to India.” It so happened. India could not receive the energy immediately because it was so much stuck in its traditions.
The Yoga of Synthesis
During his lifetime, Master CVV initiated 720 persons. He called the method for receiving the energy the New Yoga or Brikta Rahita Taraka Raja Yoga, which means that the Yoga will clear all the past karma. It is also called the Yoga of Synthesis. Many have been initiated on May Call Day into the Yoga of Synthesis ever since. By now the May Call is conducted world-wide with many groups and with a total of more than 10,000 people.
The Month of Gemini
Astrologically the May Call is in the month of Gemini. Since aeons of times the Masters of Wisdom have initiated groups of people into higher states of awareness in Gemini. Gemini stands for humanity and for the upliftment from the lower centres.
The Master chose Gemini for the initiation into the Aquarian energy through Akasha, the element of space, with the help of sound.
Fulfilment – Distribution of Fullness
He distributed the energies with the basic idea of giving fulfilment to humanity. He likes the word “fulfil” very much and said, “There is a Fill after the Full”, for then it overflows. Fulfilment is the key note of his Yoga and of the May Call.
He led a life of splendour and distributed 16 courses food daily. He was born in a rich family, sold many houses and distributed the money in form of food and clothing. He said, “Those who distribute are closer to Me.”
Three Simple Rules
He also gave 3 simple rules which we should follow; then he will take care of everything in our lives, in the life mundane and also in the life divine.
- The first rule is to regularly invoke the mantra “Namaskarams Master; Namaskarams Master CVV” in the morning and evening, with an interval of 12 hours, if possible at 6 o’clock am and pm. We feel the Master either in the heart centre or in the brow centre. Afterwards we should observe the movements of the vital force in the body or the thoughts for about 15 minutes. If we receive instructions during prayer, we should note them down and follow.
- The second rule is to lead a life of offering and to think more of the needs of the others than of one’s own.
- And the third rule is to see in all the manifestation of the First Energy: “See ME in all” – no matter if we experience pleasant or unpleasant things. We should live in simplicity but enjoy the comforts of life.
The Master promised, “When you follow the regulations, you become Me within a period of 12 years”. Everywhere in the world, where people seriously work with these principles they notice profound changes in their lives.
Anchoring in the Ether
The Master worked for 11 years, 11 months and 11 days with this Yoga and he consciously departed. He had previously announced his departure. The followers did not believe because they saw him coming back 18 times after leaving the body.
The Master had perfected his etheric body and anchored it in the ether of the planet for thousands of years. He now resides in the etheric plane of and helps the people. He created a prana reservoir which he called “Plenty of Prana”. Those who invoke the sounds “C.V.V.” will call into themselves this reservoir of prana to purify the mental and emotional vehicles and to heal diseases. It is an electrical and penetrative group work happening in silence but the Master said that he functions directly with every student who invokes him. His method is without any detours.
However, he also has channels to transmit the Energy, his mediums. They multiply the transmission of the Energy of the Master. These mediums also receive precious scientific information to establish missing links of the present sciences and to uplift the consciousness of the people for the universal brotherhood.
There is an instruction of Master CVV not to speak and explain too much about Him but to live in Him; and thus He lives in us.
