“Everlastingly that luminous Entity hath been sitting on the throne of might and everlastingly It will have a penetrating dominion over the worlds of existence.” ~ Tablets of Abdu’l-Baha

A boy shoots off a small firecracker on a pier at Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. The Lantern Festival marks the end of the Chinese New Year festivities. People send their hopes and wishes aloft on paper lanterns or fireworks to illumine the dark night.
