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.
Baha’i Blog is delighted to share an audio recording of one of our articles titled “Leonora Armstrong: Spiritual Mother of South America” in which we hear a tribute to an outstanding early Baha’i woman who responded to Abdu’l-Baha’s call to spread the teachings of the Baha’i Faith throughout the world. This article was written and read by Sonjel Vreeland.
