Knowledge (Ilm) 2013
“We have decreed, O people, that the highest and last end of all learning be the recognition of Him Who is the Object of all knowledge”
-Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh
The second of three waterfalls that make up Sipi Falls. A short walk along a muddy track through the foliage brings you to a cave behind these falls, where you can stand and watch the water smash against the rocks.
“O MY SERVANT! Abandon not for that which perisheth an everlasting dominion, and cast not away celestial sovereignty for a worldly desire. This is the river of everlasting life that hath flowed from the well-spring of the pen of the merciful; well is it with them that drink!”
-Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words of Bahá’u’lláh
Time with family in an apple orchard.
“Every child is potentially the light of the world—and at the same time its triple darkness; wherefore must the question of education be accounted as of primary importance. From his infancy, the child must be nursed at the breast of God’s love, and nurtured in the embrace of His knowledge, that he may radiate light, grow in spirituality, be filled with wisdom and learning, and take on the characteristics of the angelic host.”
The greatest education that I ever received.
“Train your children from their earliest days to be infinitely tender and loving to animals. If an animal be sick, let the children try to heal it, if it be hungry, let them feed it, if thirsty, let them quench its thirst, if weary, let them see that it rests.”
