Baha’i Faith: Modern Perspectives
May 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
We would like to invite you to the next talk in our series Bahá’í Faith Modern Perspectives!
This is a weekly virtual talk series every Saturday at 12:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Each week, a speaker from the Bahá’í Faith shares his or her perspective on a topic of modern significance. After the talk, there will be time for questions and answers. These sessions are recorded and posted to the YouTube channel, Bahá’í Faith Modern Perspectives.
About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days
The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
