A write-up from the Youth Group in Brazil:

"E pluribus unum” –Unity through plurality

For the International Gathering of Young Theosophists in 2016, we used the theme “The Search for Truth and Theosophy Today” to discuss the theosophical movement as an open space that encompasses a  truth which is alive, dynamic, and aligned with our present age. We emphasized a searching process which develops through dialogue and exchange, and is based on the fundamental premise of universal brotherhood in the creation of this diverse theosophical environment.

When we propose the theme for 2017 “Diversity: a path to universal brotherhood”, we aim to embrace diversity as a potential to live in a more fraternal world. We can ask: “What is the role of diversity in the Theosophical Society and in society as a whole nowadays? Are we tapping this potential, or allowing it to die out due to ignorance?”

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.

In suggesting the theme, we are also inviting everyone, those belonging to any religion or none, theosophists and sympathizers, members of any theosophical group, in order to build the foundations of a world which is more just and fraternal, using the open space of a loving and compassionate dialogue.
