I am a Baha’i.
I do not belong to a religious association.
I freely and independently study the teachings
of Baha’u’llah, Who teaches me that I am a
human being with the destiny to love and serve
all mankind.
As for other teachings of Baha’u’llah for
a new race of man in the new world,
people can make investigation in the following

Abdul-Baha says:

 “God has given man a heart and the heart must have some attachment. We have proved that nothing is completely worthy of our heart’s devotion save reality, for all else is destined to perish. Therefore the heart is never at rest and never finds real joy and happiness until it attaches itself to the eternal. How foolish the bird that builds its nest in a tree that may perish when it could build its nest in an ever-verdant garden of paradise.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 135)

Religion is divine education from God.
It is the beginning and end of all knowledge,
all wisdom, all good.
Today, we can read directly the words of
Krishna, Buddha, Baha’u’llah…and of other
Prophets of God to get the truth for our life.
All divisions did not come from religion,
but from disobedience to the commands of God.
All religious teachings are for love, unity, peace…
Bad things only come from human fabrications.

So you think all religions come from god? because if that’s so and you say that the reason theirs conflict in the world is because of disobedience to the commands of god,how is it possible to not disobey him when all religions are different and would contradict each other. Eventually,you would disobey him by choosing one.You cant choose all.

All religions teach love. Ignorant people divide based on rituals; true believers unite in service to other people. True believers of all religions are saints and angels.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Detachment does not consist in setting fire to one’s house, or becoming bankrupt or throwing one’s fortune out of the window, or even giving away all of one’s possessions. Detachment consists in refraining from letting our possessions possess us. A prosperous merchant who is not absorbed in his business knows severance. A banker whose  136  occupation does not prevent him from serving humanity is severed. A poor man can be attached to a small thing.

A rich man and a poor man lived in the same town. One day the poor man said to the rich man, “I want to go to the Holy Land.” The rich man replied, “Very good, I will go also,” and they started from the town and began their pilgrimage. But night fell and the poor man said, “Let us return to our houses to pass the night.” The rich man replied, “We have started for the Holy Land and must not now return.” The poor man said, “The Holy Land is a long distance to travel on foot. I have a donkey, I will go and fetch it.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 135)

WHAT IS THE GREATEST PLACE ON EARTH?

What is the greatest place on earth?

Asked By: shap36 (41-45, M) 21 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Nov 30th, 2012 at 2:10AM

Bahji where resides the Shrine of Baha’u’llah,
Qiblih of the Promised One of all religions on earth.
It is greatest because that is the Point of Adoration
where all children of God turn to for daily prayers, for
pilgrimage and for all activities in remembrance of God.
This is what Baha’u’llah has stated in His Most Holy Book
about the Qiblih:
“The Qiblih is indeed He Whom God will
make manifest; whenever He moveth, it moveth, until
He shall come to rest.” Thus was it set down by the
Supreme Ordainer when He desired to make mention
of this Most Great Beauty. Meditate on this, O people,
and be not of them that wander distraught in the
wilderness of error.
(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 68)

The Qiblih:

 

a. Identified by the Báb with “the One Whom

God will make manifest”.

 

b. The appointment made by the Báb is

confirmed by Bahá’u’lláh.

 

c. Bahá’u’lláh ordains His resting-place as

the Qiblih after His passing.

Posted by pukirahe Nov 29th, 2012 at 9:43PM

Yes and no.
All are intelligent children of God,
but each person has her own mission
and her own responsibility before God.
Because, I am the same like all other people,
so I love and respect all human beings.
Because, I have my own mission, so I do
my own learning and try to fulfill my mission
in my own conditions and circumstances. No
one can replace me and I cannot replace any
person to report about our life before God.
I am thankful to God for creating each man
completely different from monkeys.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “As there is no one who has not his designated place in the world, for there is nothing useless on this earth, we must treat each individual with respect and affection, for each is a sign of the divine favor and power – that power which has been able to draw such a being out of matter, make of him a creature with sensorial faculties and endow him with intellectual and spiritual potentiality. This is one of the visible proofs of the divine power. Let us respect these living proofs.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 58)

Abdul-Baha says:

 “There have been wars and rumors of war amongst the people of the world for many thousand years; much innocent blood has been shed, many kingdoms and empires have been laid waste. Is it not enough?

Religion should be the means of good fellowship and love. It must upraise the standard of harmony and solidarity. If religion is conducive to hatred and enmity, its existence is harmful to the welfare of the community.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 156)

THE WORLD IS OVERPOPULATED?

Do you think the world is overpopulated? Bringing new life into the world is a ‘right,’ or a ‘privilege’?

Asked By: FUDICULOUS (36-40, F) 1 hour ago

Good Question? (5)

Posted by pukirahe Nov 29th, 2012 at 3:44AM

Problems of the world are not because of
overpopulation, but of overconsumerism. We
consider all matters as things to be bought and sold,
not to be loved and love.
Birth control is not at all a good solution. With
consumerism, the world will be still a hell even with
less than 6 billion people.
We need new education, new world vision, new
concept about the spirituality of man, and each
individual must get new knowledge to solve
our physical problems with spiritual solutions.
Each couple must be responsible for the size
of their families with institutional support.
No problems will be solved only by leaders who
leave world citizens in ignorance and consider them
as stupid masses under their commands.
New education, new vision, rethinking… are essential
elements to solve global problems.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Present exigencies demand new methods of solution; world problems are without precedent. Old ideas and modes of thought are fast becoming obsolete. Ancient laws and archaic ethical systems will not meet the requirements of modern conditions, for this is clearly the century of a new life, the century of the revelation of the reality and therefore the greatest of all centuries. Consider how the scientific developments of fifty years have surpassed and eclipsed the knowledge and achievements of all the former ages combined.”

WHO IS AN INSPIRATION IN YOUR LIFE?

Who is an inspiration in your life?

Asked By: Frank5612 (31-35, M) 38 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Nov 28th, 2012 at 9:29PM

Baha’u’llah.
He tells me to believe in the Messenger of God
of our time and obey the divine teachings.
Based on this teaching I conduct a happy life
in the good pleasure of God.
When one of these two aspects is missing,
I know that I am in error. Then sincere repentance
would bring me back to the correct direction.
With His Scriptuers available on the Internet,
I find daily inspiration and I earnestly introduce
this to other people.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “1. The first duty prescribed by God for His servants is

the recognition of Him Who is the Dayspring of

His Revelation and the Fountain of His laws, Who

representeth the Godhead in both the Kingdom of His

Cause and the world of creation. Whoso achieveth this

duty hath attained unto all good; and whoso is deprived

thereof hath gone astray, though he be the author of

every righteous deed. It behoveth every one who

reacheth this most sublime station, this summit of

transcendent glory, to observe every ordinance of Him

Who is the Desire of the world. These twin duties are

inseparable. Neither is acceptable without the other.

Thus hath it been decreed by Him Who is the Source of

Divine inspiration.” (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 18)
