"The Ultreya is the gathering of the Groups or the Reunion of the Group Reunions.  The Groups and their members participate in it for the same reasons they go to the Friendship Group Reunions: to share what everybody and every Group lives.  They do not go there to acquire knowledge or to receive instructions.  If the purpose of the Ultreya were to be an educational or organizational one, it would not have the “universal” aspect that so clearly characterizes and defines it.
