STUDY AND DEEPENING MATERIAL


Didn't the soil of Isfahan give the world
the best attar of roses, Rosa Damacena?
So is the fragrance of the following words from Persia.



Dear Angels,


From Isfahan to Baghdad to the mountains of Suleymaniye, some of Baha'u'llah's mystical works have spread such a fragrance that they have become famous, especially among Sufis, notably the following works: The Seven Valleys, The Four Valleys, The Hidden Words and the Book of Certitude.

For the study and deepening of this highly spiritual content, the following lists represent an orchard of delicious fruits, a panorama of deliciously scented flowers that you will be quick to explore and appreciate.

From Baha'u'llah:

O My servants! My holy, My divinely ordained Revelation may be likened unto an ocean in whose depths are concealed innumerable pearls of great price, of surpassing luster. It is the duty of every seeker to bestir himself and strive to attain the shores of this ocean, so that he may, in proportion to the eagerness of his search and the efforts he hath exerted, partake of such benefits as have been pre-ordained in God’s irrevocable and hidden Tablets.

*

Through the might of God and His power, and out of the treasury of His knowledge and wisdom, I have brought forth and revealed unto you the pearls that lay concealed in the depths of His everlasting ocean.

*

Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths.
