The Hidden Words of Baha’u’llah.
It is a Holy Book revealed by the most recent
Messenger of God, the Promised One of
all Religions.
In this Book, Baha’u’llah condenses the teachings
of the Prophets of former Ages. The learning
and practicing the verses of this Book alone will make our
world a complete new world.
Moreover, this essential Book will shed light on all
Holy Books of the past. Because, the main concepts
about God, Prophet, Man, Soul, Virtue, Revelation,
Creation, Salvation… are clearly, briefly, profoundly
redefined and interpreted.
After reading the first time, most readers will want
to bring it along for daily rereading and meditation.
This and other Holy Books are now available free
on the Internet.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “This is that which hath descended from the realm of glory, uttered by the tongue of power and might, and revealed unto the Prophets of old. We have taken the inner essence thereof and clothed it in the garment of brevity, as a token of grace unto the righteous, that they may stand faithful unto the Covenant of God, may fulfill in their lives His trust, and in the realm of spirit obtain the gem of Divine virtue.” (Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words)

Holding the Holy Books, protection the Cause of God
serving the Cause of world peace, by clicking this keyboard,
translating books, sharing glad-tidings about the
completely new digital world and the consequent real world.
All things are made completely new: Children of teen-age
can already present inventions on TED Website; women can already
act as teachers of mankind; mature men can lower their station
to the ideal of human equality in education, in cooperation,
in finding peaceful solutions for world problems.
We don’t have to wait for the favors of kings or of priests
as in the previous century. Each individual today can become
members of world institutions in tackling all difficulties.
Our real world is really becoming better than all our dream worlds.
We really need to do intensive learning to catch up with
world events. Our two hands are becoming as powerful
as our minds. All what we dream, our hands can realize.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Although the noble conduct of the Prophets and Holy Ones of God is widely known, and it is indeed, until the coming of the Hour,[1] in every aspect of life  an excellent pattern for all mankind to follow, nevertheless some have remained neglectful of and separated from these qualities of extraordinary sympathy and loving-kindness, and have been prevented from attaining to the inner significances of the Holy Books. Not only do they scrupulously shun the adherents of religions other than their own, they do not even permit themselves to show them common courtesy. If one is not allowed to associate with another, how can one guide him out of the dark and empty night of denial, of “there-is-no-God,” into the bright morning of belief, and the affirmation, “but God.”[2]

(Abdu’l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 53)

[1 Qur’án 33:63: “Men will ask Thee of ‘the Hour.’ Say: The knowledge of it is with God alone.” Cf. also 22:1, “the earthquake of the Hour,” etc. See also Matthew 24:36, 42, etc. To Bahá’ís, this refers to the Advent of the Báb and

Bahá’u’lláh.]

[2 Cf. the Islamic confession of faith, sometimes called the two testimonies: “I testify that there is no God but God and Muhammad is the Prophet of God.”]

DEFINITION OF A RELIGION?

What is the definition of a religion?

Asked by Ntaaxe 58 minutes ago

Posted by Cleth

Truth from God revealed
in Holy Books brought down by God’s Messengers.
Messengers are proved by:
Most perfect and powerful Personality
Prophecised by a former Divine Messenger
Complete Plan to establish a new Civilization.

This definition perfectly applied for:
Moses, Christ, Muhammad, Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster
Muhammad, the Bab, Baha’u’llah.
Based on this definition, mankind will be able to
recognize Divine Messengers millennia after Baha’u’llah.

Today, followers, historians, writers, researchers, bloggers…
have supplied Holy Books and abundant materials concerning
the real lives and influences of these divine Messengers. From
now on, it is quite easy for anyone who sincerely looks
for a true religion to conduct his noble life to spiritual
accomplishment.
Never in human history do we have such a vast and complete
picture of all the religions revealed by God. Some of the abundant Sites
are Wikipedia, BBC, YouTube…..

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Therefore, men have always been taught and led by the Prophets of God. The Prophets of God are the Mediators of God. All the Prophets and Messengers have come from One Holy Spirit and bear the Message of God, fitted to the age in which they appear. The One Light is in them and they are One with each other. But the Eternal does not become phenomenal; neither can the phenomenal become Eternal.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 23)

MONEY FOR WAR BUT NOT FOR EDUCATION?

What kind of a government has money for WAR but not for EDUCATION? !

Asked By: righteouschica (18-21, F) 36 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Sep 23rd, 2012 at 5:58AM

Government of primitive societies.
All activities are based on physical self-defence,
instead of love, trust and cooperation. The worst
one is America, with social as well as individual
armament. Negotiations are not made with love
but with military strength. Now, with a dim light
of civilization, people show the carrot before the stick.
Completely no open arms.
Yes, love cannot appear as a miracle. Bigger and bigger
budgets should be used for education, especially for
human and divine education, in order to redirect man’s
mind back to love, trust, cooperation.
Without this change of mind, there will be no hope
for peace. Carrots cannot create happiness,
so guns will keep on roaring amidst cries and despair.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “The Prophets have come from the lowliest and most humiliated of the nations and in each age the Prophet has raised His downtrodden nation to the highest zenith of prosperity and success among the nations of the earth. For instance, His Holiness Christ was quite alone. He was a Jew from among the Jews. He came at a time when the Israelites were under the yoke of the Romans. He revivified the people till they were transferred from one state of existence into a higher state of existence.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 44)

STATUE MADE IN YOUR HONOR?

Full block diamond.
It might be hard to get the diamond of that size,
but it is harder to have any material that can
symbolize my soul.
I the olden days, our primitive anncestors worshipped
idols of wood and stone, they are of no use for the
betterment of their lives, Human statues are lack of
use, beauty and of reverence. Why revere human beings?!
Only worship of God is worthy, but nothing can symbolize God,
hence He forbids worship of any images, pictures, statues.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “The real teaching of Buddha is the same as the teaching of Jesus Christ. The teachings of all the Prophets are the same in character. Now men have changed the teaching. If you look at the present practice of the Buddhist religion, you will see that there is little of the Reality left. Many worship idols although their teaching forbids it….

The teaching of Buddha was like a young and beautiful child, and now it has become as an old and decrepit man. Like the aged man it cannot see, it cannot hear, it cannot remember anything. Why go so far back? Consider the laws of the Old Testament: the Jews do not follow Moses as their example nor keep His commands. So it is with many other religions.”

WHY IS IT HARD TO BE OURSELVES?

Why is it so hard to be ourselves and if you are tell me is it easy?

Asked By: okaycafe 16 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Sep 7th, 2012 at 6:01PM

To know our self is hard, to be our self is easy.
Once I know my self is body; I enter physical
education and practice it.
When I know my self is intellectual, I enter human
education and practice it.
When I know my self is the soul, I enter divine
education and practice it.
With learning and practicing, I know why life
is difficult and I also know how to overcome.
In brief, all things are difficult due to lack of
knowledge and practice. Once we know well
and practice regularly, all will become easy.
Yes, practice makes easy and perfect.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “The prophets say that something else is necessary. It is true that education transforms the desert into a rose garden, the virgin forest into an orchard, saplings into trees, and single flowers into double and treble flowers, but there is a fundamental difference in men. You may know ten children of one country, in the same school, under the same master, treated and fed in the same way. One of these children may make great progress, others may remain stationary. In the innate nature there are differences of memory, perception and intelligence. There is a superior, a middle and an inferior degree which corresponds to the difference in the fundamental estates of creation. While recognizing the influence of education we must also become acquainted with the innate disposition.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 108)

Abdul-Baha says:

 

“All the prophets of God have come to unite the children of men and not to disperse them; to put in action the law of love and not enmity.

We must banish prejudice. Religious, patriotic, racial prejudices must disappear, for they are the destroyers of human society.”
