Happy New Year !

While in Delhi, on our way to Rajasthan, we visited the Baha'i House of Worship. I like the idea of posting a picture of the beautiful lotus shaped temple in the first post of this new year. I loved getting in line, barefoot (in spite of the very cold ground) among all these people who came from everywhere, people from all and any faith on earth, and to feel the gentle spirit of the international cast of volunteers who guided and explained the rules of the place in several languages, so everyone could understand.
The Baha'i faith is an independent world religion with basic teachings such as : "oneness of humanity, of religion and of God, the abandonment of all prejudices, the agreement of science and religion, promoting universal education, the elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty, equality of men and women."
Sounds good to me.
