Could anyone confirm that the devotional part of the nineteen day feast, MUST start with prayers, with tablets/excerpts etc coming second, if so, where does it say this ?
I cannot find any clear direction, other than advice from the U.S. N.S.A in 1949, which stated that prayers come first "In the East, at any rate", thereby suggesting that the same should happen in the West.
This would certainly seem logical and suitably reverent to Baha'u'llah, but does it HAVE to be this way. If it HAS to be this way, isn't this a RITUAL ??
