  • The Equality of Men and Women

    When ‘Abdu’l-Bahá talked about the problems and challenges humanity must deal with during His travels in Europe and the United States and Canada from 1910 to 1913, He brought up the equality of men and women—a question that, where it has been unaddressed, is causing a crisis in society (and families) and consequently a threat to the social structure.

  • Traditions Differ From Truth

    Knowledge of the truth is the goal of religions. Its progressive revelation in pro- portions corresponding to human spiritual capacity should not be a cause for discord and strife between people.

  • Movement and Life

    In December 1911, ‘Abdu’l- Bahá returned from His tour in London and Paris to spend the winter months in the city of Alexandria and prepare for His journey to America and Canada the following year. The flow of visitors to His residence continued all through the months of the winter…

  • The Springtime of the Soul Returns

    ‘A bdu’l-Bahá’s stay in Paris for the months of October and November 1911 afforded His hearers the pleasure of daily talks in which He discussed various topics related to the principles of Bahá’u’lláh. At the beginning of His visit, on 15 October, He gave a talk about the regularity of the renewal of the divine […]

  • Universal Love

    ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, while on visit to the city of Paris in 1911, more than once addressed the subject of the soul in His public talks. He pointed out in particular its spiritual nature and its essential effect on material life, with emphasis too on its role in establishing a unity of mankind for whose realization in this enlightened age all past religions participated in preparing the way.

About this site

This is a site of a small family. Empathy is its spirit, and the subject is “The Far-Stretching River” that since the beginning that has no beginning to the end that has no end overflows from time to time with its life-giving waters to renew the earth and bring out of the dead life.

In short, this is a personal site. It carries a message of love to all; truth is its aim; and we deserve no dues nor merit any thanks. Everything expressed on it is merely an individual viewpoint.

Quotations The changing quotations on the main page are all from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith.

This site is composed of five sections, namely:

1. The Centenary of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s Visit to the West This section follows ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in various stages of His momentous journey to Europe and North America. It begins with His arrival in Egypt and His residence there, and includes His talks issued abroad in Arabic and published in the Egyptian press.

2. The Baha’i Faith This section presents a concise explanation of some principles we believe are necessary for the happiness and prosperity of mankind.

3. What Was Written This section contains news items and commentaries that were published at different times and in different places. Recalling them may explain the pain and confusion the world is going through—we ignored so many of their wise suggestions, as well as their warnings. If we take a more thoughtful look at them we can still save what is left and protect our children from the threats now darkening the horizon.

4. From The Past This part is a selection of events lived by Bahá’ís, and contains lessons that deserve pondering, both now and for future generations.

5. Between Two Worlds This contains an analysis of the change which took place in the 19th century and which gave us a new world—quite different from that of our ancestors. We have included this subject because of the view that adaptation to the new age requires an understanding of its significance.
