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’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, Mario Cesar Santillana sings “Las Manos del Poder”, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded live in Alive Studio (www.alivestudio.pe) in Arequipa, Peru, September, 2015.
Lyrics & Quote
¡OH HIJO DEL SER! Con las manos del poder te hice y con los dedos de la fuerza te cree y dentro de ti puse la esencia de mi luz. Contentate con ella y no busques nada mas, pues mi obra es perfecta y mi mandamiento obligatorio. No lo objetes ni lo pongas en duda.
O SON OF BEING! With the hands of power I made thee and with the fingers of strength I created thee; and within thee have I placed the essence of My light. Be thou content with it and seek naught else, for My work is perfect and My command is binding. Question it not, nor have a doubt thereof.
