Congratulations. You will gain greater success with more learning and practice. By learning we know clearly that nearness to God is acquirement of virtues. The more virtues we have, the more we will be able to live happily and to overcome difficulties with our own spiritual strength.
Religion taught by Buddha, Christ, Baha’u’llah…. are not rituals, but philanthropic actions for the betterment of this world.
Divine education today is becoming more practical and more accurate than in the previous centuries. We can get the written words of God and enjoy the fruits of our own and practical deeds.
We are fortunate to be born in this Age of human maturity.

The third teaching of Bahá’u’lláh is that religion must be the source of fellowship, the cause of unity and the nearness of God to man. If it rouses hatred and strife it is evident that absence of religion is preferable and an irreligious man better than one who professes it. According to the divine will and intention religion should be the cause of love and agreement, a bond to unify all mankind for it is a message of peace and good-will to man from God.
