Joyous Naw-Rúz!

A Celebration for the Bahá’í New Year

This is the third video devotion in our Holy Days series. Like The Twin Holy Birthdays and The King of Festivals, it is designed for a specific Bahá’í Holy Day. Running 18 minutes, it incorporates readings from Bahá’u’lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá related to the New Year Holy Day, Naw-Rúz, literally “New Day”, celebrated at the vernal equinox, the first day of spring.


Following the pattern set in the first two Holy Day programs, the opening titles briefly set the celebration of this Holy Day in it historical context to enable those who are not familiar with the Bahá’í Faith to appreciate this Day’s significance. Though this video devotion, like all our devotions, is not a required part of a Naw-Rúz celebration; we hope those who plan these celebrations will find it a welcome option to make their program more memorable.


The DVD’s menu follows the arrangement of all our devotional DVDs. The first item shows the devotion. The second makes it possible for the presenter to show the credits whenever it seems appropriate, allowing the atmosphere created by the devotion to remain undisturbed.
