The Baha’i Fast

in Explore > Calendar

The Baha’i Fast falls during the month of Ala–the last month of the Baha’i calendar. During these 19 days, Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset. 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.

Meditations for the Fast – Elika Mahony

February 27, 2016, in Music > Recording Artist, by

In this album called Meditations for the Fast, Elika Mahony sets passages from the Baha’i writings to beautiful melodies that uplift the soul and enchant the listener. The words are from prayers and writings revealed by Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha especially for the Baha’i fast, a time dedicated to personal reflection and meditation.
