- Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.
This is a recording of the live feed for the bicentenary of the Birth of the Bab event held at the Baha’i House of Worship in New Delhi, India.
The official website of the bicentenary celebrations of the Birth of the Bab, Prophet-herald of the Baha’i Faith, includes a broadcast schedule of events occurring at many Baha’i Houses of Worship around the world.
The schedule, which can be seen in full here, includes a useful indicator of how many hours remain until the broadcast from a specific House of Worship. These celebrations, occurring at Houses of Worship, (often refered to as Temples), in India, Australia, Samoa, Panama, Cambodia, the United States, Germany, Uganda, Colombia and Chile, will be live streamed directly from the bicentenary website: bicentenary.bahai.org
