- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
More than 170 guests and Baha’is gathered in New Zealand’s Parliament Buildings on 22 October, 2019 to celebrate the bicentenary of the Birth of the Bab, Prophet-herald of the Baha’i Faith, and this video presents a medley of highlights from the event.
The purpose of the celebration was to mark the bicentenary at the national level and share its significance with leading figures in national life.
Members of Parliament, members of the diplomatic corps, heads of government agencies, business leaders, academics, religious leaders and representatives from NGOs were among those gathered for an uplifting program which was preceded by an optional viewing of the film Dawn of the Light.
