Navajo Tradition and the Baha’i Teachings

PRESENTED BY Nanabah Bulman | Mar 16, 2018

Nanabah Nishli Bulman—born of her mother’s Where the Water Comes Together Clan and her father’s Red Running into the Water Clan—offers the unique wisdom of the Diné people when she urges us all to develop an “inner sense of sacredness, harmony and beauty—“hozho,” in the Navajo language—that will lead to spiritual transformation. In her talk, Nanabah investigates the Navajo Beauty Way and its relationship to the Baha'i Faith, and tells the story of her ancestors, who went on a spiritual quest to find the Everlasting Beauty. “What they found,” she says, “was a global community attracted to the same beauty—Baha’u’llah.

With Beauty before me, I walk. With Beauty behind me, I walk. With Beauty below me, I walk. With Beauty above me, I walk. Beauty has been restored" (Navajo traditional prayer). So creative! Thank you, Nanabah Nishli ...Bulman for just an incredible talk. If you don't mind, I would add, "With Beauty between me, I walk. With Beauty within me, I walk," and then, followed by the last line.
