Hundreds of followers of the philosophy of Peter Deunov from across Bulgaria and from abroad gathered, this year again, by the Bubreka Lake (one of the Seven Rila Lakes) in Rila Mountain, to meet their spiritual New Year. August 19 is the most important day in the calendar of Deunov’s followers, who mark today the 90th anniversary since Peter Deunov first took his students to meet the sunrise, performing together the spiritual dance of Paneurhythmy.
