20th August: World Union Day

Fired by the Third Dream of Sri Aurobindo, World Union was founded on November 26, 1958 as a movement for Human Unity, World Peace and Progress on a Spiritual Foundation. The Mother became the President of the first World Council of World Union on August 20, 1964, and She continues as such permanently. Since then, 20th August is celebrated as World Union Day.
World Union is a non-profit, non-political organisation founded in 1958
"with a view to carrying forward a movement for human unity and world peace and progress on a spiritual foundation. For the ordinary humanitarian and religious outlook and motivation are inadequate to meet the demands of the New Age which is already in the process of manifesting under the inevitable programme of the evolutionary nature on earth."
This quarterly journal draws inspiration from the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, particularly from the works "The Human Cycle" and "The Ideal of Human Unity".
