The Spiritual Master Peter Deunov          


March 22nd – On this day, in 1914, was established the holiday of the Brotherhood in Sofia – the first day of Spring.

The day of the spring equinox is connected to the renewing influence of the solar energy on the whole of nature. This is the beginning of new life. A period of creativity begins in the living nature. This is also the time to go out of the spiritual learning process in winter and to enter the practical area – processing of all that is learned. This day marks the beginning of the spiritual practice Paneurhythmy. Symbolically the holiday is related to the awakening of the human soul in its ascent to God.




June 22nd – The holiday of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year is another crucial moment in nature's life – this is the time when the forces ruling it change places. Up until then all the organic world is on the rise and grows, and after that comes the period of calm. The preceding period we can call a period of creativity and from June the 22nd - the period of building starts. The longest day of the year is a symbol of the supremacy of light and good over darkness.
