Creating a devotional character

Gatherings for collective worship are central to a vibrant community life.

Baha’i devotional meetings provide a space for all, regardless of belief or background, to share prayers and contemplate the sacred scriptures.

Simple acts of regular worship generate a spirit which has an impact on the community’s collective endeavours. Worship awakens within individuals the desire to contribute to the spiritual and material progress of the community.

Across Australia there are thousands of devotional gatherings held in simple settings with an informal and respectful atmosphere. There is no set ritual. These gatherings reflect the diversity of Australian society.

You can find examples of prayers in a short presentation illustrated by photos of devotional meetings.
