Here we share some of our current products. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
I’m so excited! It is a wonderful feeling to finally see an idea materialized in beautiful Bahá’í gemstones and Sterling Silver rings and necklaces 🙂
So, without further ado, I’d like to show you the products we launched in October 2020. We hope you like them as much as we do! If you’d like to purchase any of them, we have them in different sizes both on Etsy as well as on our website (please note that prices are always lower on our website and you can pay with cc and PayPal!).
The entire world has been shaken down this year mainly due to the Covid19 pandemic but also through numerous national and international challenges that have presented themselves.
During the lockdown back in March we were thinking of what we could do from behind our computers to provide solace, comfort and hope to whoever we could reach. So, we started a weekly devotional where we share quotes of the Baha’i Faith with everyone who’d like to participate and we connect with each other every Friday at 17.30 Zürich time.
The Meetup group is called ” Prayer and deepening on spiritual topics” and so far we are only a small group, but it is fantastic. We usually start with a song (we mostly use the ones on YouTube uploaded by Baha’i Blog) and then between 4-6 readings. The conversations are so rich! Having people from all over the world, with so many background stories, experience and perspective makes these meetings truly enjoyable and enlightening.
We will start sharing the PDF documents with you all so you can use them freely if you wish. Today I am uploading here the 1st one. The quotations do not have the entire reference (only the Author) but you can easily find them at http://www.reference.bahai.org
Hope this can be useful to you!
This week I came across a page that is sharing stories for children and I really like their style 🙂 They’re called “Little Champions of Justice” (isn’t that super cute?) You can see the two stories they’ve shared publicly so far:
#1: The Courageous Voice of Bertha
And #2: Ron’s First Mission for Fairness
You can subscribe to their mailing list so you’re notified when the new stories will come up.
In recent years, the Bahá’í world received instructions from their administrative head (The Universal House of Justice) to start using the “Badi calendar” for the celebrations of their Holy days. This changes things…some dates now fluctuate year to year; kind of like Easter. For instance, most notably the Birth of The Báb and Bahá’u’lláh are now TWIN HOLY DAYS! That means they are celebrated on two consecutive days. These days will range over the next 10 years between mid October to mid November. Other holy days like the New Year, the Intercalary Days, the Festival of Ridván, and the 19 Day Feasts also change but they only fluctuate a little from being a day forward or a day earlier depending on when the New Year was celebrated on that year.
Now, this post is about the Bicentennial of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the Manifestation of God for Today. It’s a big deal. He was born in Tehrán on November 12th 1817 – 200 years later, we are going to have celebrations ALL OVER THE WORLD!
I am just very excited about these events and I am sure lots of creative mids will be at work to make something uplifting and dignified. Make sure you check out where the celebration nearest to you will be next year 🙂
For those not yet very familiar with Bahá’u’lláh’s life, you can read about His life here and from His Pen here. He is the Manifestation of God for today and the attributes of His Blessed Person can be clearly seen and distinguished through the accounts and history of His life.
