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, we’re in Washington DC with Shirin Esmaeili who sings “Everlasting Beauty (La Belleza Sempiterna)” in Spanish and in English, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah. Melody composed by Isabel Miranda and Shirin Esmaeili.
This song was filmed and recorded in Washington DC, October 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
¡OH AMIGOS! No abandonéis la belleza sempiterna a cambio de una belleza que ha de morir, ni depositéis vuestro afecto en este mundo mortal de polvo
O FRIENDS! Abandon not the everlasting beauty for a beauty that must die, and set not your affections on this mortal world of dust.
C, G, D, Am
Occasionally the final chord of the progression repeats:
C, G, D, Am, Am

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
