Baha'i Society at the University of Otago

The Baha'i Society in the university is one of the most important activities of the youth. Because most of
them are the unversity students. Students and university staff cover a considerable porpotion of
the city's population. Therefore youth thought that it is a great opportuanity to establish
a Baha'i organisation among students and we did it!

    need for all to strive to know and live by the Will of God.

of prejudice.
The essentail oneness of all religions and the promotion
 of harmony and unity between the followers of all Faiths.
The equality of women and men.

the good of all on earth.
