Bahai.org: New section on Bahá’í calendar added to site
BAHÁ’Í WORLD CENTRE — A new section dedicated to the Bahá’í calendar, also known as the Badí‘ calendar, has become available on the website of the worldwide Bahá’í community at www.bahai.org/calendar/.
The new section offers an overview of the Bahá’í calendar, its origins, significance, and structure. It presents Bahá’í dates for Holy Days and Nineteen Day Feasts alongside their corresponding Gregorian dates up to the year 2064, as well as providing a downloadable calendar for the current year.
The Bahá’í calendar was introduced by the Báb and later confirmed and adopted by Bahá’u’lláh. In a message regarding the universal implementation of the calendar, the Universal House of Justice stated: “The adoption of a new calendar in each dispensation is a symbol of the power of Divine Revelation to reshape human perception of material, social, and spiritual reality. Through it, sacred moments are distinguished, humanity’s place in time and space reimagined, and the rhythm of life recast.”
The Bahai.org website explores the beliefs and writings of the Bahá’í Faith and presents the experiences of those throughout the world who, inspired by the vision of Bahá’u’lláh, strive to contribute to the betterment of society. The website features detailed sections on what Bahá’ís believe and what Bahá’ís do, as well as an extensive Bahá’í Reference Library, making it a valuable resource for those seeking information about the Bahá’í Faith.
