Iain Nabil Ferguson is a fellow Canadian who has been serving at the Baha’i House of Worship here in New Delhi for the past few months. He sings a number of songs based on the writings of the Baha’i Faith in this wonderful style that strikes me as quintessentially Canadian. This one is based on the following two selections from The Hidden Words by Baha’u'llah:
O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting. (Number 1, from the Arabic)
O SON OF BEING! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant. (Number 5, from the Arabic)
You can listen to more of Iain’s music and keep track of him online on his Myspace and Facebook pages. For another such video, check out this one I made with Honeyman and the Brothers Farr. For more great music based on the Baha’i writings, check out this selection from the band The Hidden Words.
