I am thrilled to share with you a new video titled ‘Beloved of My Heart’ from my album ‘The Divine Mystery’.
The prayer is by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá that was included in the 26 newly translated prayers. Here are the words to the prayer:
O Thou beloved of my heart and soul! I have no refuge save Thee. I raise no voice at dawn save in Thy commemoration and praise. Thy love encompasseth me and Thy grace is perfect. My hope is in Thee.
O God, give me a new life at every instant and bestow upon me the breaths of the Holy Spirit at every moment, in order that I may remain steadfast in Thy love, attain unto great felicity, perceive the manifest light and be in the state of utmost tranquillity and submissiveness.
Verily, Thou art the Giver, the Forgiver, the Compassionate. -‘Abdu’l‑Bahá
I also wanted to send you several videos for the “Festivals of the Twin Birthdays”, celebrated this year on November 6th and 7th.
These Twin Holy Days celebrate the Births of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, Who together brought humanity spiritual and social teachings intended to create a new civilization based on the unity in diversity of the entire human race.
It seems that now more than ever Their teachings are needed in the world, so I wanted to share these videos as a gift for these most special Holy Days!
Videos for the Birth of the Báb:
1. My Beloved — A prayer by the Báb sung in 6 languages.
1.A Radiant Heart— The first Hidden Word of Bahá’u’lláh. The video is designed to take the viewer on a journey through a number of the Baha’i Holy Places and to give us a sense of being present in those beautiful and tranquil surroundings.
3. Arise — This video uses a series of photos that take the viewer on the approach to the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh. It is an a cappella choral piece and the lyrics are from a Tablet revealed for the Celebration of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh.
Wishing you joyous celebrations wherever you are in the world.
