Mandaean New Year – Karsa

Mandaeanism is one of the oldest gnostic religions to date. It is believed to be at least 2,000 years old. Mandaeans are a small religious and ethnic group that follow the teachings of John the Baptist. They were mainly settled in Iraq and Iran, however, due to persecution and the on-going war, Mandaeans were forced to flee and are now settled in different countries all around the world.
