This is the fourth in a series of posts about the life of the Blessed Beauty covering His Life from 1858 until roughly 1863 up to His departure from the Ridvan Garden following His Declaration. 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 Twin Holy Day celebrations. The two files together present the Life of Bahá’u’lláh. The first file provides explanations and stories compiled from the Bahá’í Writings and history books while the second contains images.

The Ridvan Festival is approaching. Perhaps it is timely to, on these 12 days of Ridvan, read a few of Bahá’u’lláh’s  Tablets for Ridvan. This selection of 20 Tablets convey, very clearly, the Greatness of This Day and Ridvan. Happy Ridvan.

Not long ago, I participated in a Naw-Rúz celebration with many friends of the faith attending. Needless to say, that required an introductory talk to both the Faith and Naw-Rúz. The talk takes about 10 minutes and is based on the presentation of the Faith introduced in Ruhi book 6. It also briefly introduces Naw Rúz. Might this introduction be of use for other friends around the world?

The Ridván Festivities are approaching. These twelve days are very special and on each day of these twelve days, there will be a Ridván related post on this blog. I have found myself “forgetting” that Ridván is for twelve days. To remedy that, I prepared a series of materials, one for each day, to read during these twelve days. Perhaps I am not the only one. Therefore, on each day of Ridván, there will be a Ridván related post. This series of Ridván related blog posts started with “Prelude to the Ridván Celebrations“followed about this post on the progressive allusions made by Bahá’u’lláh prior to His Declaration in the Ridván Garden.

In a few days, we celebrate the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh. As part of preparation for this Holy Day and its celebration, it might be valuable to read some stories and recounts of believers who had the honour of being in the presence of the Blessed Beauty and experience the Majesty of His Person. Following story is about one of the attempts on the life of the Blessed Beauty. A professional assassin, tried to assassin the Blessed Beauty while He was living in Bagdad.
