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.
In this podcast episode by the Baha’i World News Service, Saba Detweiler from Germany interviews Rachel Bayani from the BIC Brussels Office, Vahid Vahdat from Brazil, and Karl Wightman from the United Kingdom. They discuss the efforts of regional and national Baha’i communities to participate in the discourses of society.
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.
It’s all very well. I find the discussions with all the different organizations very interesting. Everyone wants to succeed! Everyone wants to achieve something! The economy wants to flourish! The banks want to do good business! The politicians want to have great success! But all that please or Baha’u’llah’s message! We can do all this without faith, humility, and obedience to the commandments of God. We make the laws (Merkel in Germany) We command as it must! We can all do that much better without the message of Baha’u’llah? It’s interesting what the Baha’i tell us about your god! We take that out for us, which is useful. The other is left to the Baha’i! From the Baha’i writings you get a golden nose? So one after another comes in Europe. The crisis, Brexit, the eastern states, the chaos in France and much more! Naturally! We can do all this without believing in Baha’u’llah! We can do it. (Merkel and CO) Marriage for all is clear? Everything works wonderfully in the world! For what the Baha’u’llah? Is it superfluous? (We make it—-?????

Thank you, dear Naysan, for the interesting news. Of course, the Baha’i make great effort in faith. I do not doubt it! I only agree with Baha’u’llah message from Akka and I am always amazed!
