In the first paragraphs of The Promised Day is Come, Shoghi Effendi quotes passages from Bahá’u’lláh about how the Lesser Peace will not come about until humanity has experienced world engulfing tribulation, though the Bahá’í Writings never explain exactly what that calamity will be. The present pandemic demonstrates how such an unexpected transformative event could occur and how quickly the circumstances of the nations and people of the world could suddenly become changed. A quick review of the stages in the path towards the Lesser Peace as described by Shoghi Effendi can help us understand what process we must go through to achieve a global polity and the stages that will lead from that secular governance to the establishment of the Golden Age of the World Order of Bahá’u’lláh.

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.

We would love to hear from you
