March 2 2013 Baha'i Newsletter

Today, March 2, is the first day of the Bahá'i month of fasting between sunrise and sunset. It is only 19 days, since the Bahá'í calendar is based upon solar reckoning--19 months of 19 days each. This is a prayerful and meditative time in preparation for the start of a new year, which occurs on the vernal equinox, March 21. (There will be parties!)

For more about the Bahá'í Fast, here are links to some articles from the Baha'i site at
