“The adoption of a New Calendar in each dispensation is a symbol of the power of Divine Revelation to reshape human perception of material, social, and spiritual reality. Through it, sacred moments are distinguished, humanity’s place in time and space reimagined, and the rhythm of life recast.” *
The 19-Day Cards were born out of a prayer to create a system to "Bring thyself to account each day..." using the qualities within the Baha'i calendar as a guide.
The 19-Day Cards have been employed in a variety of ways. The application of interfaith scripture is meant to invoke the remembrance of the ancient Covenant found in all religions.
