Not a traditional Vaisakha observance of any Buddhist tradition.

CW Leadbeater, a psychic who died in 1934, had visions & he told this story. It was picked up by some Arcane School types and today is part of some New Age rituals. The great invocation chanting was created by Alice A Bailey.

Neither theosophical nor Buddhist, here is a short article pointing out the distortions that AA Bailey added to the spiritual path.
