An Aha Moment
How an understanding Bahá'í turned depression into a spiritual aha moment for me.
Are Bahá'ís Dissidents ?
A dissident is one who uses words in order to educate and expects that to cause change, and a revolutionary might be a frustrated dissident who is tired of waiting. The followers of Bahá'u'lláh can adopt neither position, even though they are working to make the world a better place.
Are Bahá'ís Essentially Atheists ?
Bahá'ís have been accused of atheism when their definition of God doesn't match someone else's. The Bahá'í concept of God is that of an essentially unknowable essence, all-powerful, omniscient, omnipresent, but compassionate and loving.
Are Bahá'ís Pacifists?
Bahá'ís do not volunteer for violence and war, but are not absolute pacifists, either. They are obedient to their governments, but try to find non-combatant service.
Burnout is so common that it is now the norm for populations in industrialized countries. Here is some of the preventive guidance I have found within the Bahá'í Faith.
Ayyám-i-Há is Coming!
This is the season for parties for many Bahá'ís, prior to the Fasting month, which is followed by a another party celebrating new year's on the vernal equinox.
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.
Part 1 of a two-part series on community administration lays out the map of Bahá'í local, national and international institutions, with brief descriptions. Part 2 is on the Bahá'í electoral process.
Bahá'í Administration in the Field
So how do you build grass roots democracy when you don't have all the urban amenities, or even literacy? An experience in rural Honduras.
Bahá'í Burial Rites
Burial requirements for Bahá'ís are few and simple, essentially treating the physical body with great respect.
