Today, I wanted to share a beautiful poem by Bahá’u’lláh’
founder of the Bahai faith. Born in 1817 to a prominent family in Iran,
he was banished into exile for forty years because of his teachings.
Eventually, this took Him to the Holy Land. It was there that He passed away in 1892.
Can you imagine that he advocated equal rights for women back then? It didn’t catch on!
“Soon will your swiftly, passing days be over,
And the fame and riches, comforts and joys,
provided by this world will be gone, gone, gone.
Be loving fathers to the orphans
and a refuge to the helpless
and a treasury to the poor
and a cure to the ailing.
Be ye sincerely kind, be the Lord’s mercy to Man
For Love is Light, Love is Light, Love is Light.
Show ye this way to the people, for Love is Light.”
Bahá’u’lláh’ 1817 – 1892
