- 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’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.
