A school caretaker looking out into the afternoon sun. His face was bathed in a glorious and radiant light, the mere look of which warmed my very bones! Indeed, the sun of truth shines on all, from the highest King to the lowliest caretaker, and all depend upon it to guide their way in darkness.

“Thereupon the voice of the true Faith was lifted up, calling aloud again and again and saying: “O concourse of the earth! By God! I am the true Faith of God amongst you…God hath manifested Me with a light that hath encompassed all that are in the heavens and all that are on earth. Judge ye equitably, O people, My manifestation, and the revelation of My glory, and the radiance of My light, and be not of them that act unjustly.” Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 96

Ata currently spends his time working and acting. “Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.”
