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

…if the religions investigate reality and seek the essential truth of their own foundations, they will agree and no difference will be found. But inasmuch as religions are submerged in dogmatic imitations, forsaking the original foundations, and as imitations differ widely, therefore, the religions are divergent and antagonistic. These imitations may be likened to clouds which obscure the sunrise; but reality is the sun. If the clouds disperse, the Sun of Reality shines upon all, and no difference of vision will exist. The religions will then agree, for fundamentally they are the same.

— Abdu’l-Baha
