Voyage of Love - Book Review
Review of Amy Renshaw's book on the 1912 visit of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, "Voyage of Love: 'Abdu'l-Bahá in North America," Bellwood Press, 2010.
How Faith Will Change the World Today
Historically, core religion has been the primary source of lasting social change because believers are willing to alter behavior and attitudes in order to be 'good.' Bahá'ís think it can happen again.
What is Faith?
What does it mean to have faith? Is it avoiding reality, or the most powerful tool that shapes behavior and can change the world?
Backbiting - the worst sin for Bahá'ís
Gossip, backbiting and calumny are considered sins on a par with murder and arson because they quench the light of the heart and extinguish the life of the soul.
Happiness is transitory and can be superficial, often based upon material things, whereas joy is a fundamental state underlying every other emotion.
The Kitáb-i-Aqdas - A Summary of Bahá'í Laws
The Kitáb-i-Aqdas is Bahá'u'lláh's own summary of His revelation, including laws and theology. It is a detailed list of issues and topics revealed and expounded upon in previous texts.
Suicide is not an option for Bahá'ís, because their faith teaches that the purpose of this one chance at physical life is to develop the virtues needed for eternal spiritual life.
Bahá'í Wills Testaments and Estate Law
According to the Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, Prophet/Founder of the Bahá'í Faith, each individual has the obligation to write a will and a testament.
Bahá'í Burial Rites
Burial requirements for Bahá'ís are few and simple, essentially treating the physical body with great respect.
Bahá'ís and Tobacco Use
Tobacco use is not expressly forbidden Bahá'ís, but its use in any form is strongly discouraged.
