Baha’i Naw-Ruz

in Explore > Calendar

Every year Baha’is from all over the world and of all cultural backgrounds celebrate Naw-Ruz, the beginning of a new year in the Baha’i Calendar. Naw Ruz marks the end of the 19-day Baha’i Fast, which is a period of reflection and profound spiritual reinvigoration. Naw-Ruz is a celebration of a “spiritual springtime” that symbolizes both individual renewal and mankind’s revitalization.

Baha’i Naw-Ruz Celebrations on Swiss TV (in Swiss German)

July 21, 2015, in Videos > Documentary, by

It’s great to see how the Baha’i Faith is being covered in different parts of the world, and on a Swiss National Television (SRF) show called “Bilder Zum Feiertag”, which means “Impressions of the Holy Day” in German, they did an episode on the Baha’i Naw-Ruz celebrations in Zurich, Switzerland in 2015.

The TV show is in Swiss German, so if you don’t speak Swiss German then you won’t really understand much, but it uses a host from a different religion to capture the event of a holy day celebration of a different religion through their own eyes, and in this episode, a Buddhist named Tenzin Khangsar visited the March 21, 2015 “Naw Ruz“, (or New Year) celebration of the Baha’is in Zurich.
