Baha'i Religion (Incense)

Photomicrograph of Incense

The Baha'i religion, founded by Baha'u'llah just over a hundred years ago, is one of the world's most widespread independent religions sporting more than five million members. Members of the Baha'i faith object to polygamy, slavery, religious prejudices, and are interested in world peace and harmony. Baha'i groups hold a monthly feast every 19 days when all members gather to share devotions, consultation, and fellowship. The photomicrograph of incense above illustrates one of the scents used in preparation for this feast.
