Tenth International Bahá’í Convention

Ninth Day of Ridván

A thousand delegates representing the Baha’is of the world joined with a thousand other Baha’is – Counsellors, Baha’i World Centre volunteers, and others – to celebrate Ridvan, the Most Great Festival, at the Shrine of Baha’u’llah. After a program of prayers and readings in Arabic, Persian, English, French, Spanish, and Russian – and recitation of the Tablet of Visitation in Arabic – the friends joined in a procession through the gardens of Bahji to circumambulate the most holy Shrine.
