Imagine: A Talk by Fariborz Sahba


In this talk titled “Imagine” by Fariborz Sahba given at the Grand Canyon Baha’i Conference (Phoenix, USA) in December, 2016, Fariborz Sahba explores the power of the imagination, of being visionary during times of difficulty, of spiritual distinction and beauty.

Fariborz Sahba was born in Iran. At the age of 21 he established Varqa International Children’s Magazine which continued for more than 20 years and was published in 9 languages. At only 28 years of age, he designed the Baha’i House of Worship in New Delhi, India (commonly called the Lotus Temple). He also designed the 19 terraces surrounding the Shrine of the Bab, which have been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He was the Project Manager during the construction of the buildings of the Arc on Mount Carmel and designed the pilgrim and information centre complex in Bahji.
