Baha’i Sabbath: Ilm 15, 172 B.E. (10/30/2015)

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Behold the disturbances which, for many a long year, have afflicted the earth, and the perturbation that hath seized its peoples. It hath either been ravaged by war, or tormented by sudden and unforeseen calamities. Though the world is encompassed with misery and distress, yet no man hath paused to reflect what the cause or source of that may be. Whenever the True Counsellor uttered a word in admonishment, lo, they all denounced Him as a mover of mischief and rejected His claim. How bewildering, how confusing is such behaviour!

Baha’i Sabbath: Ilm 8, 172 B.E. (10/23/2015)

O THOU who art serving the world of humanity! Thy letter was received and from its contents we felt exceedingly glad. It was a decisive proof and a brilliant evidence. It is appropriate and befitting that in this illumined age—the age of the progress of the world of humanity—we should be self-sacrificing and should serve the human race. Every universal cause is divine and every particular one is temporal. The principles of the divine Manifestations of God were, therefore, all-universal and all-inclusive.

Every imperfect soul is self-centered and thinketh only of his own good. But as his thoughts expand a little he will begin to think of the welfare and comfort of his family. If his ideas still more widen, his concern will be the felicity of his fellow citizens; and if still they widen, he will be thinking of the glory of his land and of his race. But when ideas and views reach the utmost degree of expansion and attain the stage of perfection, then will he be interested in the exaltation of humankind. He will then be the well-wisher of all men and the seeker of the weal and prosperity of all lands. This is indicative of perfection.

Thus, the divine Manifestations of God had a universal and all-inclusive conception. They endeavored for the sake of everyone’s life and engaged in the service of universal education. The area of their aims was not limited—nay, rather, it was wide and all-inclusive.

Therefore, ye must also be thinking of everyone, so that mankind may be educated, character moderated and this world may turn into a Garden of Eden.

Love ye all religions and all races with a love that is true and sincere and show that love through deeds and not through the tongue; for the latter hath no importance, as the majority of men are, in speech, well-wishers, while action is the best.

Holy Day: Birth Of The Bab. (10/20/2015)

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

The Bab was the Forerunner of Baha’u’llah (in the same manner that John the Baptist was the Forerunner to Jesus Christ). Prophet and founder of the Babi Faith. Reformer of Islam. The word/title “Bab” is a Persian, Arabic and Aramaic word which means “Gate” or “Door”. The Bab closed the door to the Age of Prophecy (about the coming of the kingdom of God and Earth) and He opened the door to the Age of Fulfillment (of which we are in the infant stage now).

The Bab was born on this date (10/20) on the Western (Christian) calendar in the year 1819.

His birth date on the Baha’i calendar is linked to the Lunar cycles and moves throughout the year.

His birth on the Baha’i calendar in this year 172 of the Baha’i Era came on Mashiyyat 17.


ALL praise be to Thee, O my God, inasmuch as Thou hast adorned the world with the splendour of the dawn following the night wherein was born the One Who heralded the Manifestation of Thy transcendent sovereignty, the Dayspring of Thy divine Essence and the Revelation of Thy supreme Lordship. I beseech Thee, O Creator of the heavens and Fashioner of names, to graciously aid those who have sheltered beneath the shadow of Thine abounding mercy and have raised their voices amidst the peoples of the world for the glorification of Thy Name.

O my God! Thou beholdest the Lord of all mankind confined in His Most Great Prison, calling aloud Thy Name, gazing upon Thy face, proclaiming that which hath enraptured the denizens of Thy kingdoms of revelation and of creation. O my God! I behold Mine own Self captive in the hands of Thy servants, yet the light of Thy sovereignty and the revelations of Thine invincible power shine resplendent from His face, enabling all to know of a certainty that Thou art God, and that there is none other God but Thee. Neither can the power of the powerful frustrate Thee, nor the ascendancy of the rulers prevail against Thee. Thou doest whatsoever Thou willest by virtue of Thy sovereignty which encompasseth all created things, and ordainest that which Thou pleasest through the potency of Thy behest which pervadeth the entire creation.

I implore Thee by the glory of Thy Manifestation and by the power of Thy might, Thy sovereignty and Thine exaltation to render victorious those who have arisen to serve Thee, who have aided Thy Cause and humbled themselves before the splendour of the light of Thy face. Make them then, O my God, triumphant over Thine enemies and cause them to be steadfast in Thy service, that through them the evidences of Thy dominion may be established throughout Thy realms and the tokens of Thine indomitable power be manifested in Thy lands. Verily Thou art potent to do what Thou willest; no God is there but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

This glorious Tablet hath been revealed on the Anniversary of the Birth [of the Báb] that thou mayest recite it in a spirit of humility and supplication and give thanks unto thy Lord, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed. Make thou every effort to render service unto God, that from thee may appear that which will immortalize thy memory in His glorious and exalted heaven.

Say: Glorified art Thou, O my God! I implore Thee by the Dawning-Place of Thy signs and by the Revealer of Thy clear tokens to grant that I may, under all conditions, hold fast the cord of Thy loving providence and cling tenaciously to the hem of Thy generosity. Reckon me then with those whom the changes and chances of the world have failed to deter from serving Thee and from bearing allegiance unto Thee, whom the onslaught of the people hath been powerless to hinder from magnifying Thy Name and celebrating Thy praise. Graciously assist me, O my Lord, to do whatever Thou lovest and desirest. Enable me then to fulfil that which will exalt Thy Name and will set ablaze the fire of Thy love.

Thou art, in truth, the Forgiving, the Bountiful.

Baha’u’llah, Tablets, pp. 233-234



Some Answered Questions Holy Text Preserved! Ilm 1, 172 B.E. (10/16/2015)

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

Dear friends,

The original preserved text of Some Answered Questions (SAQ) is now available in hard copy format.


This book gives the answers of a great World Teacher to numerous questions which deeply trouble modern man in this post-modern Age of Transition. First published in London in 1908, Some Answered Questions is as timely now as it was then; the need for it has grown more acute with the years. The many questions which it considers remain either unanswered or misunderstood in the minds of the mass of humanity.

What is man? Is there a God? How can we know God? What of the Reality of the Unseen? Miracles, prophecy, predestination, immortality, free will, reincarnation, baptism, the Trinity, healing? Here, too, are commentaries on and explanations of Biblical passages and the metaphysical underpinnings of scientific worldviews suited to our age of increasing maturity.

Some Answered Questions is intended for the searcher with an open and independent mind. The answers are unorthodox. Religion and Spirituality, stripped of ritualism and tradition, become reasonable and alive. If the search for truth is coupled with a dream of justice for all and a world at peace, if the student is willing to receive an idea by which he or she may live meaningfully both for true-self and for others, then here you will find an authentic challenge to match that dream.

This is the original 1908 translation that preserves the prophecy of the coming of the “7th Angel” made by ‘Abdu’l-Baha in this volume (p. 66) in 1908 and approved by Him. Contrary to the Covenant-breakers assertions, Some Answered Questions is NOT “pilgrim’s notes”–but forms a collection of talks in the authenticity of the written Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Baha approved and corrected by Him (with His own hand during His lifetime) in the potency of genuine Baha’i Holy Writ:

“Baha’u’llah has made it clear enough that only those things that have been revealed in the form of Tablets have a binding power over the friends… Those talks of the Master that were later reviewed by Him, corrected or in some other form considered authentic by Himself, such as Some Answered Questions, are considered as Tablets and therefore have the necessary binding power” (Shoghi Effendi, to the United States Publishing Committee, December 29, 1931).

This original re-print edition of Some Answered Questions combats the various changed false-text corrupted “editions” of the Covenant-breakers and contains a unique preface written by Dr. Leland Jensen and updated for current times along with a New Appendix including the Tablet of the Dichotomy and ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s the Tablet of Wood, Iron and Gold. The perfect teaching text (and required reading: the first 90 pages) for the full experience of the Baha’i Fireside series.

O thou who art cheered through the Fragrances of God!

When thou desirest and yearnest for meeting in the world of vision; at the time when thou art in perfect fragrance and spirituality, wash thy hands and face, clothe thyself in clean robes, turn toward the court of the Peerless One, offer prayer to Him and lay thy head upon the pillow. When sleep cometh, the doors of revelation shall be opened and all thy desires shall become revealed.

Endeavor to guide thy mother and confirm her in faith; when the heart becometh confident, the imagination of Satan and evil vanisheth away. If the heart becometh absolutely tranquil, suspicion and imagination will entirely pass away.

Abdu’l-Baha’, Tablets Of pg. 104


People for the most part delight in superstitions. They regard a single drop of the sea of delusion as preferable to an ocean of certitude. By holding fast unto names they deprive themselves of the inner reality and by clinging to vain imaginings they are kept back from the Dayspring of heavenly signs. God grant you may be graciously aided under all conditions to shatter the idols of superstition and to tear away the veils of the imaginations of men. Authority lieth in the grasp of God, the Fountainhead of revelation and inspiration and the Lord of the Day of Resurrection.

Baha’i Sabbath: Mashiyyat 13, 172 B.E. (10/9/2015)

REGARDING the statement in The Hidden Words, that man must renounce his own self, the meaning is that he must renounce his inordinate desires, his selfish purposes and the promptings of his human self, and seek out the holy breathings of the spirit, and follow the yearnings of his higher self, and immerse himself in the sea of sacrifice, with his heart fixed upon the beauty of the All-Glorious.

As for the reference in The Hidden Words regarding the Covenant entered into on Mount Párán, this signifieth that in the sight of God the past, the present and the future are all one and the same—whereas, relative to man, the past is gone and forgotten, the present is fleeting, and the future is within the realm of hope. And it is a basic principle of the Law of God that in every Prophetic Mission, He entereth into a Covenant with all believers—a Covenant that endureth until the end of that Mission, until the promised day when the Personage stipulated at the outset of the Mission is made manifest. Consider Moses, He Who conversed with God. Verily, upon Mount Sinai, Moses entered into a Covenant regarding the Messiah, with all those souls who would live in the day of the Messiah. And those souls, although they appeared many centuries after Moses, were nevertheless—so far as the Covenant, which is outside time, was concerned—present there with Moses. The Jews, however, were heedless of this and remembered it not, and thus they suffered a great and clear loss.

As to the reference in the Arabic Hidden Words that the human being must become detached from self, here too the meaning is that he should not seek out anything whatever for his own self in this swiftly passing life, but that he should cut the self away, that is, he should yield up the self and all its concerns on the field of martyrdom, at the time of the coming of the Lord.

Disciples Of The Temple – Mashiyyat 5, 172 B.E. (10/1/2015)

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Dear friends,

Baha’u’llah declares His mission in the Surah of the Temple–a Temple in which Peter states in the Bible we are all “living stones.” One of the great writers of the 20th Century is Manly P. Hall. I first heard of him through Dr. Jensen who cites him in his book The Beast first published in 1971. Professor Hall has written on many esoteric subjects and for many years gave weekly lectures from his center in LA. He was friends with Nicholas Roerich; he was a junior contemporary and admirer of Mason Remey; and has written about ‘Abdu’l-Baha and spoken on esoteric matters concerning the Baha’i faith. When Shoghi Effendi was in Manchester, England ‘Adbu’l-Baha sent the following tablet:

“In the Name of God!

“O Sincere Servant of the Blessed Beauty!

“Your detailed letter has been received, and has been the cause of the utmost joy and gladness. Praise be to God! The loved ones are all astir and active, but prudence is necessary. You have rent the veil too widely asunder. Explain to the loved ones that the rending of the veil to such an extent will be the cause of great agitation, and the harm thereof will reach to the Holy Land. Great caution is necessary. Discourses in churches and great public gatherings are in no wise permitted as in this place enemies, within and without, are lying in wait and are bent on aggression. Prudence requires that activity should, for the present, be concealed and carried on with the utmost moderation. Convey to the loved ones, one and all, on my behalf, the greatest longing, love and kindness. Give a spiritual message from me to Mr. Healds and say unto him: “Peruse the Gospel, how His Holiness Christ – may my life be a sacrifice to Him – says, ‘Conceal it, that the Pharisees may not be informed thereof.’ Now the same condition prevails.” (Mark 8:29-30)

“This matter is of the greatest importance. On no account let them contribute articles to the newspapers, and so long as they are not sure of any soul, let them breathe no word to him. Consider how the Freemasons have for two hundred years carried on their work, and unto this day they have not openly declared it to any soul. Not until they find a hearing ear will they speak. The loved ones too must proceed with the greatest prudence, lest serious difficulties be created. If any one should travel to the Holy Land, he must on no account declare to anyone by the way that his purpose is to visit us. The loved ones must, in the presence of strangers, speak forth simply the teachings of the Blessed Beauty and mention no word of the belief concerning Him. Should anyone enquire, “What is your belief regarding the Blessed Beauty?” let them answer: “We regard Him as the foremost teacher and educator of these later ages and Abdu’l-Baha as the Centre of His Covenant.”” (‘Abdu’l-Baha, October 21, 1921)

Mr. Healds religion of origin was Judaism and he was very much interested in the fact that Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha were of Jewish extraction (of the tribe of Judah from King David — though of Persian descent after Nebuchadnezzar took the throne into Babylonian captivity) as the “Kings from the East” that God had brought forth seated “upon the throne of King David” that is to last forever. Jesus was also of the line of King David (but not that of the throne line) through David’s son Nathan. When the disciples recognized that Jesus was of Davidic origin they knew he was the “messiah” that is the “christ.” Christ comes from the Greek word Christos that is the same as the Hebrew word messiah and literally means anointed one –like to christen a ship. The full title was messiah ben David the anointed male sperm descendant of king David. Mr. Healds being Jewish was very excited about this! But like Jesus ‘Abdu’l-Baha instructed him and the early Baha’is to: “Consider how the Freemasons have for two hundred years carried on their work, and unto this day they have not openly declared it to any soul. Not until they find a hearing ear will they speak.” Thus the throne-line and lineage of King David that ‘Abdu’l-Baha passed on to his son Mason Remey was a well-guarded secret in the inner circles of the Baha’i Faith. Adepts such as Roerich and Manly P. Hall were aware of this and spoke of this significance allegorically for the most part, even as Jesus spoke in parables and symbolisms, but on his prophesied return was to “speak plainly of the father.”

Now while the Baha’i writings contain the facts of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha being seated upon the throne of King David it was not the spearhead of the teaching effort. This allowed the “Hands” to have room to maneuver and lead many of the Baha’i peoples astray in their violation of 1957. As many people were materialists, they were also mis-directed away from recognizing the fact that Mason had been legally adopted by ‘Abdu’l-Baha as his son and successor to the throne of King David.

When Dr. Jensen came out with his public proclamation in 1971, he proclaimed the genealogy of Baha’u’llah. In the year 2001 AD (Al- Mustaghath) this fact was projected back into the public consciousness ten days after the 9-11 event and the full genealogy of Baha’u’llah and all the ancestors seated upon the throne of King David was unfurled for the very first time to the public eyes. This was all meant to be.

When I was in England visiting the Atlantis Bookshop, I first learned then of the rumors that Professor Hall had been murdered. It made a deep impression on me, and made me think more about the situation of Shoghi Effendi as the OHO (guardian) of the Baha’i Faith and of his murder in London by Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands,” while Mason had inherited the throne of King David–and how God uses the people to both protect and promote His Cause.

I was in London, at that time, for the ritualistic purification of the tomb of Shoghi Effendi–a necessary precursor in the events leading up to the so-called Arab Spring and other victories in the faith (forces of light–Baha’i means light) that began to manifest in the year 2010. Our mission was successful, but not without some undue and lingering consequences for some of the faithful friends. It is essential that the friends remain in refuge in the Sanctuary of the inner Temple. This is the outer sanctuary of the text of the Covenant; that was written in three parts by ‘Abdu’l-Baha on three different occasions and represents the Book of the Law of the Baha’i Faith (sealed with seven seals). When the leadership in the faith performs certain operations it is essential that all the people participate in harmonious support, i.e. remain firm and steadfast.

For example, it was in the year 1991 in Ridvan that Dr. Leland Jensen, as the Lamb, opened the 7th Seal unleashing spiritual forces that were greatly needed for this healing of the world. This purgatory healing was accompanied by the exit of a small dissident people who were knowledgeable in the teachings of the Lamb, and went out from under the Covenant to form other dissident Baha’i “groups.” This pattern–as you know–follows through the entire history of the faith since the proclamation of the Bab in 1844. God uses this pattern to spread the wisdom of His teachings through the iniquity of violation of the Covenant. The violators of the Covenant place themselves between the people (the public) the unaware and the unsuspecting, (and sometimes even the “elect”) and OCCLUDE the source of the true teachings–namely the Manifestation of God and His appointed successor or successors in the Covenant. This is similar to the Blood Moon Lunar eclipse that has just occurred!

In an eclipse the heavily body of light is “occluded” by another obstacle that prevents the people from seeing it. The occultation of the Davidic Kingship–even more than the minor and major occultations of the 12th Imam–has always remained the major occluded spiritual and material reality on our planet during the past 6000 year cycle of Adam since the Covenant was violated by Nimrod and Semiramis and the mystery cults were founded and “Christianity” was hijacked. The prophecies speak of a time when these mysteries shall be cleared, and the way will be open and seeking permitted.

Here in the talk by Manly P. Hall is important information for all the disciples of the Temple. When you have some free time–take the time to hear his words and mediate upon them and your experience of them. This will be essential experiential knowledge in passing the next TEST and graduating to the next level that is coming upon us soon.

Our mission will be successful!

In Service,

Baha’i Sabbath: Mashiyyat/Will 6, 172 B.E. (10/2/2015)

Justice is, in this day, bewailing its plight, and Equity groaneth beneath the yoke of oppression. The thick clouds of tyranny have darkened the face of the earth, and enveloped its peoples. Through the movement of Our Pen of glory We have, at the bidding of the omnipotent Ordainer, breathed a new life into every human frame, and instilled into every word a fresh potency. All created things proclaim the evidences of this world-wide regeneration. This is the most great, the most joyful tidings imparted by the Pen of this Wronged One to mankind. Wherefore fear ye, O My well-beloved ones? Who is it that can dismay you? A touch of moisture sufficeth to dissolve the hardened clay out of which this perverse generation is moulded. The mere act of your gathering together is enough to scatter the forces of these vain and worthless people.

Strife and conflict befit the beasts of the wild. It was through the grace of God and with the aid of seemly words and praiseworthy deeds that the unsheathed swords of the Bábí community were returned to their scabbards. Indeed through the power of good words, the righteous have always succeeded in winning command over the meads of the hearts of men. Say, O ye loved ones! Do not forsake prudence. Incline your hearts to the counsels given by the Most Exalted Pen and beware lest your hands or tongues cause harm unto anyone among mankind.


Every man of insight will, in this day, readily admit that the counsels which the Pen of this Wronged One hath revealed constitute the supreme animating power for the advancement of the world and the exaltation of its peoples. Arise, O people, and, by the power of God’s might, resolve to gain the victory over your own selves, that haply the whole earth may be freed and sanctified from its servitude to the gods of its idle fancies—gods that have inflicted such loss upon, and are responsible for the misery of their wretched worshippers. These idols form the obstacle that impedeth man in his efforts to advance in the path of perfection. We cherish the hope that the Hand of divine power may lend its assistance to mankind and deliver it from its state of grievous abasement.

In one of the Tablets these words have been revealed: O people of God! Do not busy yourselves in your own concerns; let your thoughts be fixed upon that which will rehabilitate the fortunes of mankind and sanctify the hearts and souls of men. This can best be achieved through pure and holy deeds, through a virtuous life and a goodly behaviour. Valiant acts will ensure the triumph of this Cause, and a saintly character will reinforce its power. Cleave unto righteousness, O people of Bahá! This, verily, is the commandment which this Wronged One hath given unto you, and the first choice of His unrestrained Will for every one of you.

Baha’u’llah, Excerpted From: Tablet Of The World
