Your heart-lotus shall blossom forth, and the ray of God’s Divine Light shall illuminate your heart; He shall be revealed to You.
The True Lord is Himself the Creator.
(Sikh Scriptures, Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Section 25 – Raag Maaroo)
May you be given life! May the rain of the Divine Mercy and the warmth of the Sun of Truth make your gardens fruitful, so that many beautiful flowers of exquisite fragrance and love may blossom in abundance. Turn your faces away from the contemplation of your own finite selves and fix your eyes upon the Everlasting Radiance; then will your souls receive in full measure the Divine Power of the Spirit and the Blessings of the Infinite Bounty.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 166)
Happy Naw Ruz (Baha’i New Year), Happy First Day of Spring!
What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, homemade banana bread baked with love and shared with a smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator.
This Thursday, March 24th, I invite you and your loves ones to an interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington on the theme of “Divine Blossoms”. We’ll start at 8 pm with reading of selected Holy Writings and Prayers. I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayer. We’ll also uplift and refresh our souls with music, and we’ll conclude with tea and homemade banana bread and baklava.
We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please contact me.
