SIETAR Kansai May 2018 – Annual Field Trip – Bahá’í Faith

SIETAR Kansai May 2018

– Annual Field Trip – Bahá’í Faith


Sunday, May 13 – from 13:45 to 17:00


May is the month for our annual field trip. In the past we have visited the Kobe mosque, the Cathedral of St. Maria of Tamatsukuri of Osaka, the Buddhist community of Shinnyoen in Settsu-Tonda, Osaka, the Quaker community of Kansai and the Jewish synagogue in Kobe. This year our plan is to learn more about the Bahá’í faith.

The Bahá’í Faith is a religion which initially started in Persia (present day Iran) and parts of the Middle East. This faith addresses such essential themes as the worth of all religions and the oneness of humanity. It believes in freedom from prejudice, the fundamental equality of the sexes, the harmony between religion and science, and the importance of education. Racism and nationalism are openly rejected, and there is a strong belief in the goodness of community. Presently there are approximately 5-7 million adherents around the world.

We are fortunate to learn more about Bahá’í from severalpeople, among them, Mr. Bijan Dadfar and Mr. Amin Ghadimi, and we will meet in Amagasaki. You are invited to join our field trip. This is open to all who are interested, both SIETAR members and non-members alike.


We will meet at

13:45 noon

at the north exit of Hankyu Mukonoso Station.
