Universal White Brotherhood
This name brings questions on regular basis from people who associate the term “White” with a racist connotation. The associated two terms “Universal” and “Brotherhood” should clear all ambiguities on the subject.
“Brotherhood” means that the teachings are offered to the entire community of human beings living on the planet whose destiny is to live together as children of the same creator: God.
“White” this term must be understood symbolically. It refers to the white light, the highest spiritual symbol, which is the synthesis of all colors (like all the different colors reflected through a prism). Colors that the mystic tradition considers being the manifestations of the soul’s virtues.
Extract of article 1 of the statutes of the association Fraternité Blanche Universelle:
“in the name ‘Universal White Brotherhood’ the term “white” does not in any manner refer to the color of a particular race.
Just like the white color is the synthesis of all the colors, the idea of “Universal White Brotherhood”, which is immaterial, encompasses all human beings without exception. It invites the realization of a fraternal, harmonious life on the entire planet, respecting each race, each religion, each nationality.”
“Universal”: the psychic structure of human beings, who are created in the image of God, enables them to rise and expand their consciousness until it reaches a universal concept of life.Therefore, the name “Universal White Brotherhood” represents in itself a program. Its teaching is basically a psychology and a pedagogy allowing people to do a work on themselves and, thanks to this work, to feel that they are truly becoming brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of God, and conscious inhabitants of this immense of this immense dwelling that is the universe.
