Rothko Chapel presents Abbas Mahvash meditation
The Rothko Chapel is hosting a time of meditation, discussion and prayer led by Abbas Mahvash of the Baha’i Community of Houston to explore a few answers to that evocative question – especially in light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.
The program will explore a Baha’i view on the purpose of religious practice, specifically the significance of prayer and meditation for the transformation of individuals and communities.
The Baha’i faith teaches that all religions are speaking of the same loving presence when they refer to God -- although they may call that presence different names.
Participants will be led in a reading and chant of Baha’i scripture about prayer and meditation, followed by a discussion. The group will then practice Metta Bhavana, a style of Buddhist meditation, which helps practitioners cultivate loving-kindness, as well as both internal and external transformation.
