Naw Ruz marks the end of the Fast and the beginning of a new year in the Baha’i calendar. Naw-Ruz is a celebration of a “spiritual springtime” that symbolizes both individual renewal and mankind’s revitalization.
Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, Shirin Guerrero and Daniel Mantas sing “Bendito es el Sitio” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Madrid, Spain, October 2015 and its melody was composed by Elizabeth Hahn.
Lyrics & Quote
Bendito es el sitio y la casa y el lugar y la ciudad y el corazón y la montaña y el refugio y la cueva y el valle y la tierra y el mar y la isla y la pradera donde se ha hecho mención de Dios y se ha glorificado su alabanza.
Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley, and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention of God hath been made, and His praise glorified.
