Ridvan celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God. The Ridvan Festival is 12 days long and is also the time of year where Baha’is elect their governing bodies.
This virtual deepening, hosted and organized by individual Baha’is in the Stonnington community, features Azita Sobhani who shares with us about the newly translated volume called Light of the World. The talk is titled “Lessons of Spirit in the School of Insight”.
