LARGEST RELIGION WITHOUT RITES

The Baha'i Faith, which is practiced worldwide by about 6 million people has no ceremonies, no sacraments and no clergy. Bahaism emphasizes the importance of all religions and the spiritual unity of humanity. It emerged through the teaching of two 19th century Iranian visionaries and is now adhered to in over 70 countries.
