What Bahá’ís Do
“To be brief, it hath been decided by the Desire of God that union and harmony may day by day increase among the friends of God and the maid-servants of the Merciful One, in the West. Not until this is realized will the affairs advance by any means whatever! And the greatest means for the union and harmony of all is Spiritual Meetings. This matter is very important and is as a magnet (to attract or) for divine confirmation.”
- ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 124-125
The Baha’is host devotional gatherings at homes and community centers to take advantage of such benefits through prayer and the reading together of the Bahá'í Writings and from other Holy Scriptures to create an environment of unity and harmony. There are no rituals; no one individual has any special role. A spirit of communal worship is generated by these simple gatherings.
Today hundreds of such regular devotional meetings are held in localities throughout the island in urban and suburban neighborhoods and villages alike.
