This is the first in a series of posts about the life of the Blessed Beauty. The concept is to present the Life of Bahá’u’lláh with the aid of images and texts from Bahá’í sources. Perhaps these materials can be of use when preparing presentations about Life of the Blessed Beauty. The materials can also be used for individual deepening in connection with the bicentennial celebrations. The two files together present the Life of Bahá’u’lláh. The first file contains images while the second provides explanations and stories compiled from the Bahá’í Writings and history books.

In 1912, Abdu’l-Bahá announced that the Temple is already built after having put in place the corner store of the Chicago House of Worship. How can a Temple, with no walls, structures or doors be already built with one stone? Abdu’l-Bahá also said that peace “will be established in this century, It will be universal in the twentieth century. All nations will be forced into it.”[3] similarly to the Temple, how can peace have been established when there are refugee crisis, extremist groups growing stronger, unimaginable poverty and suffering?”. Perhaps a fresh viewpoint of “evolutionary processes”, which “stands in contrast to pre-occupation with the short term in the wider society today,” [4] will aid in understanding this outwardly seemingly contradiction. Hopefully this semi-compilation can provide some insights. You can read the text below or view it below or The Temple is already built.

Below you will find a fairly comprehensive program for celebrating the Declaration of the Báb. The intention is to provide materials that the friends can use in preparing programs or for personal use when celebrating the Declaration of the Báb. The concept of the program is to start from today and trace it back to that momentous Day. Then the events that transpired in the physical world are described followed by some excerpts on what happens when a Manifestation of God Declares His Mission and God speaks again. Finally the program concludes with the some quotes about the Station of the Báb and what this important Day means in our daily lives today. You can also download Program for the Declaration of the Báb as a pdf.
