Interfaith chants


Air I am

Fire I am

Water, Earth and

Spirit I am


O SON OF MAN! Thou art My dominion and My dominion perisheth not; wherefore fearest thou thy perishing? ...Abide then in thy love for Me, that thou mayest find Me in the realm of glory.


Bahá'u'lláh, Hidden Words, Arabic #14



Let me respectfully remind you,

Life and death are of supreme importance.

Time swiftly passes by and opportunity is lost.

Each of us should strive to awaken…

Awaken… take heed!

Do not squander your life!


Prayer offered by Rev. Aneeta Saroop.
