baha’i pilgrimage: counting the waves

Here’s a little Baha’i pilgrimage video I put together out of clips taken during my family’s pilgrimage to the Baha’i World Centre in Israel—specifically, to the old city of ‘Akká. There are many Muslim traditions (hadith) about ‘Akká, some of which are quoted by Bahá’u’lláh in His Epistle to the Son of the Wolf. This video is based on the tradition which states, “He that counteth forty waves [in ‘Akká], while repeating: ‘God is Most Great!’—exalted be He—God will forgive his sins, both past and future.”

  1. Merci Dan, c’est vraiment magnifique et reposant de voir ces vagues défiler au rythme du piano…
    Ca me rappelle tant de choses !

  2. What a beautiful scene to share. Thank you.

    Judging by the mild nature of the waves during your pilgrimage to the shores of ‘Akka’, your sins must have been very small ones. When I was there many years ago, counting the waves according to the tradition described by Baha’u’llah, the waves coming in were immense, wild, tumultuous, fierce – it must have taken alot more of God’s Greatness to forgive me for my sins, praise be unto Him. I am so grateful for his loving-kindness and mercy.
