La cumbia del jardinero: A Song from the Dedication of the Baha’i Temple in Colombia

August 16, 2018, in Music > Community, by

“La cumbia del jardinero” is a song that was performed at the dedication of the Baha’i House of Worship in Norte del Cauca, Colombia. It uses the metaphor of a gardener to describe the process of spiritual education, which has been an important feature of the development of vibrant communities in the area. The song describes how the world is like a forest, and gardeners work to expose the sun’s rays to the smallest of plants, allowing them to grow and share their fruits of love and unity with the world. 

If you’re curious to know what a Baha’i House of Worship is, we have a brief introduction to them here on Baha’i Blog.

You can read more about the inauguration of the Baha’i Temple in Colombia in this Baha’i World News Service article: “Colombia Temple dedicated in joyful ceremony”.
