Being rich and living in harmony, our visit to the Bahai Gardens

Until we visited the Bahai Gardens near Acre in Israel we had never heard about the Bahai religion. These gardens are the world wide centre of the Bahai religion. The around 7 million believers all pray in the direction of the gardens. Here you find the grave of the founder Bahai’u’llàh who was killed in 1850. The religion believes in the following values: everyone is rich, lives in harmony and the beauty of all things. All these elements are certainly present in the gardens.

Voor we de Bahai tuinen bezochten, hadden we nog nooit van het Bahai geloof gehoord. Deze tuinen zijn het wereldwijde centrum voor de Bahai volgers. Ongeveer 7 miljoen gelovigen wereldwijd bidden in de richting van de tuinen. Hier vind je het graf van de oprichter Bahai’u’llàh die werd ter dood veroordeeld in 1850. De Bahai godsdienst staat voor begrippen zoals: iedereen is rijk, leven in harmonie en schoonheid. Al deze elementen kunnen zeker worden teruggevonden in de tuinen..
