Baha’i Calendar – Permanent

Artistic Calendar of the paintings of Parvin – Printed in France.

Parvin’s paintings capture the beauty and harmony which she discovered in the gardens and monuments of the Baha’i Holy Places in Israel.
This calendar is a colorful reflection of her impressions of these sacred places of the Baha’i Faith.

The Bahá’í year consists of 19 months of 19 days each (i.e., 361 days), with the addition of certain « intercalary days » (four in ordinary and five in leap years) between the eighteenth and nineteenth months in order to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The Báb named the months after the attributes of God. The Bahá’í New Year, like the ancient Persian New Year, is astronomically fixed, commencing at the March equinox (21 March), and the Bahá’í era commences with the year of the Báb’s declaration (i.e., 1844 A.D., 1260 A.H.).
