- Running every August, National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. See what we're up to!
This song called “Paradise” is the fourth song in a collection of 10 songs called ‘Music Inspired by the Heroes Teaching Conference’.
In April this year, some 1,000 Baha’is and like-minded friends from all over Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales, Australia, gathered together in the city of Brisbane to attend a historic conference aimed to help its participants find their place in service to Baha’u’llah and humanity.
The conference was called ‘The Heroes Teaching Conference’, and woven throughout the two-day program were beautiful songs performed by conference participants who were inspired by stories of heroism in the Baha’i Faith’s history, and from the spirit generated at the event. Within a few weeks after the conference, these songs were recorded live in a music studio in Brisbane, and we’re so excited to share this wonderful collection of inspiring songs!
Included below are the lyrics to “pradise”, and the video and audio playlists for the ‘Music inspired by the Heroes Teaching Conference’, and you may also enjoy watching this highlight video about the conference, and some of the talks from the conference.
