Ritual dancing on Rila mountain - in pictures

Members of an international religious movement called the White Brotherhood gathered on the top of the Rila Mountain, near Babreka lake, some 100 km south of Sofia on today to perform ritual dances.

The teaching of the movement, also known as the Universal White Brotherhood, whose founder is Bulgarian Peter Deunov, combines aspects of Christianity and Hinduism with a heavy emphasis on brotherly love.
