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

EACH religion teaches that a mediator is necessary between man and the Creator — one who receives the full light of the divine splendor and radiates it over the human world, as the earth’s atmosphere receives and diffuses the warmth of the sun’s rays. This mediator between God and humanity has different designations though he always brings the same spiritual command. …In one era he is called Abraham, at another time Moses, again he is called Buddha, another time Jesus, and yet another time Mohammad. …Man must turn to the light and not think that the form of the lamp is essential, for the lamp may be changed; but he who longs for light welcomes it from whatever source it comes.

— Abdu’l-Baha
