Hope everyone is doing well. Our next meet up will be on Sunday, May 6th and we are planning a general discussion on “Various Meditational Techniques and personal experiences”.
Siamak has also kindly agree to talk on Baha’i faith followed by some Q&A. Many people don’t even know about Baha’s faith which originated in Iran (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bah%C3%A1%27%C3%AD_Faith)
As fyi, Bahais accept all religions are true and believe that “Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators—known as Manifestations of God—whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. These Manifestations have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God”
By the way, during our last meet up, we had an excellent talk on Sikh religion by Kamal. Found it very interesting. Also thanks to Monica for her talk on Reiki, specifically her demo on “Energy ball” and how the healing process works. Really helpful to broaden our spiritual horizons!
Spiritual Get-together/Cultural event:
Couple of people suggested that it may be a good idea to have a get together with some food and cultural programs of spiritual nature, whether it is dance, songs, music etc. Each one of these art forms can convey spiritual messages in a deep & powerful manner (as much as intellectual discussions). Also, it provides an opportunity to meet up with the families. Just want to throw this idea and remain open to comments. We haven't figured how to structure this or decided on a date or even a month , but may be two or three months out.
