  • we must investigate truth for ourselves, without preconceptions
  • our economic problems are linked to spiritual problems
  • the family and its unity are very important
  • there is one God
  • all major religions are from God
  • world peace is the crying need of our time.


Gatherings

The devotionals gathering of the Bahá’ís are welcoming to people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds.  These devotional gatherings bring us together in a spiritual atmosphere to share prayers and read holy writings from all the Faiths of God. Sometimes devotionals include singing and melodic chanting, there may at times be a discussion of spiritual topics following the prayers; at other times we might decorate the space with flowers or candles; and sometimes we may have a set program.  There is also room for spontaneity and diversity.

Interfaith Prayer Gathering for Joyful Elevation of the Soul (open to people of all faiths and ethnicities)

Facilitated by:  Baha’i Chaplain, Dr Amir Abadi
Days and Time: Mondays, 1 pm till 2pm

Location: Prayer Room, Curtin University, Building 109. Level 1.

“Devotional meetings are occasions where any soul may enter, inhale the heavenly fragrances, experience the sweetness of prayer, meditate upon the Creative Word, be transported on the wings of the spirit, and commune with the one Beloved. Feelings of fellowship and common cause are generated, particularly in the spiritually heightened conversations that naturally occur at such times and through which the “city of the human heart” may be opened.”
