The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

MANA – Reflections on the Life of the Spirit (Full Album)

May 13, 2023, in Music > Recording Artist, by

We’re excited to share MANA’s debut album free to listen to here on our YouTube channel! MANA, which means “inner power” or “strength of spirit” in many Polynesian languages, is a musical and cultural performance group made up of young Pacific Island Baha’is who are mainly based in Sydney, Australia. This creation of love was the service the group decided to undertake as a result of their participation in the Ruhi Study circles. They hope that this resource will aid others to memorize the sacred texts found in Ruhi Book 1: Reflections on the Life of the Spirit.

You can purchase and download individual tracks or the entire album, as well as other MANA albums, on Bandcamp.

You can also skip directly to the track you want to listen to below.
