Remembering Abdu’l-Baha

by ed in A Faith for Today
This year Bahá’is all over the world will celebrate the life of ‘Abdu’l‑Baha, our example of how to be a Bahá’í. Abdu’l-Baha (1844-1921), was the Perfect Exemplar of the Teachings of Baha’u’llah and Center of the Covenant. His humble life of service serves as an inspiration for those who aspire to a fuller spiritual life. Luminous Journey is a video about Abdu’l-Bahá’i’s journey to America. You can watch at https://youtu.be/KfT-g7tpDiI  

From the Baha'i Writings

White doves and gray doves associate with each other in perfect friendship. Man draws imaginary lines on the planet and says, “This is a Frenchman, a Musselman, an Italian!” Upon these differences wars are waged. Men are fighting for the possession of the earth. They fight for that which becomes their graves, their cemeteries, their tombs.

In reality all are members of one human family — children of one Heavenly Father. Humanity may be likened unto the vari-colored flowers of one garden. There is unity in diversity. Each sets off and enhances the other’s beauty.

— Abdu’l-Baha
