A Celebration of Love and Beauty for Birth of Baha'u'llah

Today is a special day for Baha’is all over the world as we celebrate the Birth of Baha’u’llah – the founder of the Baha’i Faith.  In honor of Baha’u’llah’s birthday, we had a small celebration and the theme revolved around the qualities of love and beauty.  Below are some photos from today to share some of the spirit of the gathering. 
I would also like to share a gift of music dedicated to today’s Holy Day.  It is a bilingual song entitled ‘Advancing Civilization’ with the angelic voice of Zhao Li in Chinese, Bruce Gremo on the flute and Jarome Matthew arranging and producing the song (I had the honor of singing the English vocals).  Please feel free to download it and share it with friends.
The beautiful quotation is from the Writings of Baha’u’llah:

All men have been created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization.
So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.
