To grow up poor is very fortunate.
I was born in a rural village without schools,
without health service, without means of
transportation. I know that any food with salt
is already very lucky.
I have no strong will, no intelligene, no talent.
The best thing of my life is to have faith in God,
learning and practicing His teachings,
and happily walking on the path of service,
as an unknown layman, until today.

Baha’u’llah says:

“34. O DWELLERS OF MY PARADISE! With the hands of loving-kindness I have planted in the holy garden of paradise the young tree of your love and friendship, and have watered it with the goodly showers of My tender grace; now that the hour of its fruiting is come, strive that it may be protected, and be not consumed with the flame of desire and passion.” (Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words)

HAIKU

All are born quite rich
To thankfully grow up poor
On path of service

The Baha’i Faith is the renewal of all Faiths from God.
The Baha’i Faith, like Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism….
might take centuries for mankind to learn and practice
and to see its divine quality.
Today, it is much easier to study the Baha’i Faith than
studying former religions, because:
Its literature is translated into over 800 languages,
so almost all people can read it in their mother languages.
Baha’is reside all over the world, so you can meet them
and converse frankly with them on all matters concerning religion.
Baha’is love and respect all people, without trying to convert,
but they try hard to build spiritual brotherhood.
Yes, just google the word “Bahai”, you will get abundant introduction
in books, images, videos, songs and historical facts about this new Faith.

God is pleased with the stone that turns into jade.
God is pleased with the plant that gives sweet fragrance.
God is pleased with the bee that makes honey.
But God is really disappointed with the man
who does not develop his own mind.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF YOUR OWN LIFE?

What is the purpose of living, why are we here?

Asked By: lunarsun2012 3 hours ago

Answer by pukirahe Dec 18th, 2011 at 3:49PM

I am asking and answering again and again this important question.
Successively they are:
Life has no meaning.
Life is for living fully like other rich people.
Life is for learning how to live happily and usefully.
Life is to fulfil one’s duty as good citizen,
of the nation, and then of the world.
Life is to know and to serve God
(I finally find this ideal answer in the Holy Books).

Baha’u’llah says:

“High, immeasurably high art Thou above the endeavors of the evanescent creature to soar unto the throne of Thine eternity, or of the poor and wretched to attain the summit of Thine all-sufficing glory! From eternity Thou didst Thyself describe Thine own Self unto Thy Self, and extol, in Thine own Essence, Thine Essence unto Thine Essence. I swear by Thy glory, O my Best-Beloved! Who is there besides Thee that can claim to know Thee, and who save Thyself can make fitting mention of Thee?” (Baha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha’u’llah, p. 328)

HAIKU

All humans have minds
To ask and answer questions
Concerning their lives

How dangerous is philosophy?

Philosophy is as good as art, science, literature and agriculture.
They are the light, the life, the spiritual fruit of human activities, exclusively. They are the foundation of world civilization.
It would be best when these activities are placed under
the guidance of God, through His revealed religions.
Otherwise, it is the end of the human world.

Abdul-Baha says:

“Is the materialistic philosophy of this Europe, so much praised by contemporary agnostics and atheists, a philosophy to be admired? Are these people wooers of the spirit? Nay, they have drowned that capacity and are out of touch with the kingdom of reality. Is this an enviable goal to which humanity may aspire? Is this a system of philosophy through which people may become glorified? No, by God, the philosophy of glory needs no scholastic curriculum.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 139)

HAIKU

Knowledge is power
To build civilization
Through education
