Happy Naw Ruz! (norooz or "New Day")

Today at sunset marks the beginning of the Bahá'i New Year (B.E. 167). This prayer is read by Bahá'is around the world, and in this case, chanted.

The images are from the Bahá'i World Center on Mt. Carmel, Haifa, Israel, and of Bahji, across the bay from Haifa, which is the final resting place of Bahá'u'lláh, the Prophet-Founder of the the Bahá'i Faith.
