World Brotherhood Day

December 7, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 4:00pm on day first of December, repeating indefinitely

Celebrating Global Friendship

Ananda represents a global movement of awakening in Spirit, and the realization that we are all brothers and sisters. The antidote to hostility, war and tension lie in the discovery of our connection with each other, with life, and with God.

Help Ananda Portland and Ananda Worldwide continue spreading the message and experience of Self-realization through your offering.

This annual celebration is a sacred evening of music, inspiration, meditation and joy, and provides the opportunity to make our first Christmas gift one of universal blessing and love. As Yogananda said, his mission was the second coming of Christ—Christ’s love, Christ’s joy reawakened in this world.

We look forward to sharing this evening with you.

4–5:30pm World Brotherhood Ceremony, Offering and Celebration
