The discussion evenings series at my home continues this Friday, 8 pm, with a discussion on the shared characteristics of the lives of all the Messengers of God, from Abraham onwards as well as Krishna and Buddha, exploring the causes of the opposition they faced, the spiritual ascendency which they gained over people, and their unity in the source of their revelation and mission. Specific details will also be mentioned with regard to the lives of the twin Messengers of the Bahá’í Faith, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, and Bahá’u’lláh’s Son, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
“Inasmuch as these Birds of the celestial Throne [i.e. the Messengers of God] are all sent down from the heaven of the Will of God, and as they all arise to proclaim His irresistible Faith, they, therefore, are regarded as one soul and the same person. For they all drink from the one Cup of the love of God, and all partake of the fruit of the same Tree of Oneness.” -Baha’u’llah

The 30-minute documentary “Education Under Fire” will be shown, addressing the denial of higher education to Baha’is in Iran. There will also be Iranian Baha’i students who have experienced education denial first-hand speaking out at the event and available to answer questions.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
“One of the most powerful human documentaries I have ever seen, Education Under Fire is sure to galvanize viewers who will be exposed to an outrage that until now has received little attention—the systematic denial of an entire religious community of the right to pursue higher education in their own country.”
–Elise Auerbach, Iran Specialist for Amnesty International USA

I will be hosting regular fortnightly, i.e. every two weeks, discussion evenings at my place on Fridays, 8 pm, followed by refreshments. These are open to all and are meant to provide a regular space to learn more about the teachings and principles of the Baha’i Faith and how they relate to current issues in the world. The format will be a short presentation on a topic followed by open discussion. The first one will be this Friday on a general introduction to the Faith. Here is a list of future fireside topics which is subject to change. Let me know if you’d like to propose a topic or have a particular question(s).
