- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
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 New York, USA with Nadia Affolter who sings “The Teacher” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in New York, USA, January 2017.
Lyrics & Quote
The teacher, when teaching, must be himself fully enkindled, so that his utterance, like unto a flame of fire, may exert influence and consume the veil of self and passion. He must also be utterly humble and lowly so that others may be edified, and be totally self-effaced and evanescent so that he may teach with the melody of the Concourse on high—otherwise his teaching will have no effect.Abdu’l-Baha
Repeat: C G Am Fmaj7 The teacher, when teaching, must be himself fully enkindled x2 so that his utterance x2 like unto a flame of fire, may exert influence and consume the veil of self and passion, and passions and consume the veil of self and passions, and passion. Repeat x2
