- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
Canadian Baha’i Marie-Claire Saindon has composed a choral piece based on the words of Abdu’l-Baha, “When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.”
The song was performed and produced by the Swedish group VoNo – Voces Nordicae. The piece is essentially wordless but it powerfully depicts the battle to root out thoughts of war and hatred from one’s mind.
We’ve featured Marie-Claire previously on Baha’i Blog. You can read that article here: The Imaginary Garden: A Choral Piece Inspired by a Poem by Mavash Sabet of the Yaran

Last but not least, you can also listen to these words put to music with this Baha’i Blog Studio Session: “Thought of Love” by Nica, Sahar & Delara
