Baha’i Ridvan Celebration – Johannesburg, South Africa

In this video, some of the Baha’is from the Baha’i community of Johannesburg, South Africa, are interviewed about Ridvan. Ridvan is a twelve-day festival in the Baha’i Faith, commemorating Baha’u’llah’s declaration that he was a Manifestation of God. In the Baha’i Calendar, it begins at sunset on the 13th of Jalal, which translates to the 20th or 21st of April, depending on the date of the March equinox.
