The Garden of Ridvan
Tonight marks the beginning of the one of the holiest festivals of the Baha'i year, the twelve days of Ridvan. Ridvan commemorates the declaration of the Prophet founder of the Baha'i Faith, Baha'u'llah, and the inception of the new religion in 1863. Baha'i writings abound with nature symbolism. This historic event literally took place in a garden, and the idea of a garden evokes the imagery of Paradise.
Enjoy these garden images and this lovely song by our much loved Dan Seals, and have a blessed Ridvan and a joyous Spring!
