Over the years, this blog has had posts relating to specific Holy Days. As these are scattered among the other posts, this page organizes them so to make them more available. Some Holy Days are missing but will be prepared in due time.

A valuable collection of forty-five selections from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh revealed for, or relating to, nine Bahá’í Holy Days named Days of Remembrance is essential in this regard.

Declaration of the Báb

 

In preparation for a befitting Celebration of the Declaration of the Báb, perhaps a compilation of stories of His Life prior to His Declaration can help in setting a spiritual mood.

The Báb as an Infant

The Childhood of the Báb

The Devotional Attitude of the Báb

The Schooling of the Báb

The Báb as a Merchant

Final Preparation of the Báb before His Declaration

This link offers a fairly comprehensive compilation of materials that might be inspirational for Celebrating the Declaration of the Báb. The concept of the program is to start from today and trace it back to that momentous Day. Then the events that transpired in the physical world are described followed by some excerpts on what happens when a Manifestation of God Declares His Mission and God speaks again. Finally, the program concludes with some quotes about the Station of the Báb and what this important Day means in our daily lives today.

 

The Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh

 

Readings and Program for the Ascension of  Bahá’u’lláh including slideshow

The Majesty of The Blessed Beauty was immediately felt by all who came into His Presence.  Perhaps reading accounts of people who had the honor of being in His Presence can assist in the commemoration of His Ascension.

The Blessed Beauty suffered beyond our comprehension in His lifetime on earth. Reflecting on His Sufferings might be suitable on this Holy Day.

In connection with this Holy Day, it might be interesting to it might be interesting to ponder on the plots and attempts made on His life and how they all failed.  Plots and Attempts on the Life of Bahá’u’lláh contain nine accounts of such attempts.
