- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
This is the fourth episode of The Universe Within series. This initiative shares quotations from the Baha’i Writings with artists around the world and the end result is a multi-media exploration of an elevated idea.
In this episode of the series, artists from diverse walks of life visualize the spiritual significance of life after death.
The quotations sourced from the Bahaʼi Writings for this episode include:
“The world beyond is as different from this world as the world is different from that of the child while still in the womb of its mother.”
“The body is like the cage and the spirit is like the bird… if the cage becomes broken the bird will continue to exist. Its feelings will become even more powerful, its perceptions greater, and its happiness increased.”
“When you break a glass on which the sun shines, the glass is broken but the sun still shines.”
You can find all episodes of The Universe Within on its YouTube channel.
