Youth Gathering in Brazil

In February 2017 second INTERNATIONAL gathering of young Theosophists will be held at the Theosophical Institute of Brasilia, Brazil.

There are many possible perspectives, many needs of humanity, and an enormous work which needs to be done. May each one contribute to the great work of art, allowing it to be inclusive, so we can feel within our hearts what is obvious to the intellect: all colors together create the purity of a sunbeam.

Diversity: a path to universal brotherhood
25 February to 1 March 2017
