- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
We’d like to share this rendition of the prayer “Blessed is the Spot” by Baha’u’llah translated into Woiwurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, the traditional owners of the Yarra River Valley which covers much of the present location of Melbourne.
In this video Perfect Chord, the Melbourne Baha’i Choir, sings “Blessed Is the Spot”, by Elizabeth Hahn, arranged by Russell Garcia, at a concert on 23 June 2018, as part of Emerge in the North.
Here is the prayer in Woiwurrung:
Barmburrin mani, a wilam, ba mag-golee, ba wilam-deba, ba durrung, ba ngarrak, ba moong-moong-gak, ba merring-jak-koren, ba dun-ngorrm, ba biik, ba warinj, ba bawal, ba banum burndap dhumba-njanjin Bunjil maman.
