In addition to personal prayer and meditation, Bahá'ís communities hold regular devotional gatherings for collective worship. These gatherings unite people in prayer and awaken their spiritual susceptibilities.

Because there is no ritual or clergy in the Bahá'í Faith, devotional gatherings are often held in peoples’ homes or in public places and they are diverse in their form. Prayer and reflection upon sacred scriptures is at the heart of such programs, and music,Devotional Gathering Music singing, poetry are often incorporated as well.

These gatherings are held in every Bahá'í community to nourish a pattern of life characterized by its devotional character. The spiritual atmosphere created within a devotional meeting imparts a sense of joy, fellowship and love that enriches the relationships among participants.

Bahá'í devotional gatherings are intended to embrace the attitude of prayer and practice of devotion that is universal to all religions, and they are open to people of all beliefs and backgrounds.
