World Religion Day is an annual religious holiday. Its purpose is to remind every believer that it is necessary to strive for harmony between existing beliefs. It is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of January. In 2023, the celebration falls on the 15th.
The day was first celebrated in 1950. However, the prerequisites for its formation appeared as early as 1947. Then the Baha’i Spiritual Assembly held a meeting in Portland, where it was customary to hold an event each year aimed at world peace through the world religion. On this day, various lectures should be held, priests and famous people should speak. Society must understand that it is one, despite differences in faith. Any religion is just a way of knowing the spiritual world, but it is the same for everyone.
Analyzing the history of the creation of the holiday, it is important to understand what the Baha’i faith is. It originated in the lands of Iran in the 19th century. Faith was built on three fundamental principles: God, existing religions and the entire population of the Earth are one. The Baha’i religion is a comprehensive perception of everything that exists. It acts as a link, uniting various religions and peoples of the world.
- Today, there are over 4 religions all over the world.
