June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Baha’i Blog 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 Mahikeng, South Africa with Kgaone, Solomzi, Busisiwe and Omphemetse singing “Oho Mora Bophelo (O Son of Being)”, in SeSotho, and based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.
Lyrics & Quote
Oho Mora Bophelo! Nthate ke tle keo rate, ha osa nthate lerato laka le keke la fihla ho wena. Tseba jwalo, oho mohlanka.
O SON OF BEING! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant.
