Naw Ruz marks the end of the Fast and the beginning of a new year in the Baha’i calendar. Naw-Ruz is a celebration of a “spiritual springtime” that symbolizes both individual renewal and mankind’s revitalization.
I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now, but there’s a great show I watch on SoulPancake’s Youtube channel called Have a Little Faith, and basically the show follows Zach Anner (the show’s creator and host) in his quest to learn more about faith and different religions.
In this particular episode called ‘Baha’i How Are You Doing?’, Zach visits Justin Baldoni, a Baha’i, an actor and a director (and the creator of My Last Days, another great show on SoulPancake), to learn more about the Baha’i Faith. The episode is both accurate and heartwarming, and Zach’s humor is awesome – so check it out!
Oh, and if you haven’t heard about SoulPancake, it’s an awesome initiative started by Baha’i actor Rainn Wilson, which aims to answer ‘life’s big questions’. Check out SoulPancake’s website, and subscribe to SoulPancake’s Youtube channel where you can find many more awesome videos.
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
This video with Zach Arner brought tears to my eyes. It showed the simple truth. Zach really showed the purity of his heart as well as the young people in the video. Thanks for using the art of video in the best way!
