Communion with God through prayer and meditation is a fundamental element of Baha’i life. North Vancouver Baha’is regularly hold devotional gatherings. These gatherings are often held in some one’s house where Baha’is and their friends engage in meditation on scriptures of various world religions and read and reflect on quotes from thinkers and philosophers on themes relevant to their daily living. There are no rituals. The aim is to enhance spiritual susceptibilities that could promote acts of selfless service to one’s community.
