3 ‘Azamat (Grandeur)
May 18, 2018 - May 19, 2018
An event every year that begins at 18:00 on day 18 of May, repeating indefinitely
For today’s daily reflection, I wish to share the attached video created by Tricia Hague-Barrett, which, IMO, perfectly shows how the lack of development of virtues and both inner and outer perfections leaves us as barren trees as expressed in the following quote from Baha’u’llah. Thank you Tricia for allowing All Things Baha’i to share this wonderful short video. To see more of Tricia’s video creations, go here.
“Strain every nerve to acquire both inner and outer perfections, for the fruit of the human tree hath ever been and will ever be perfections both within and without. It is not desirable that a man be left without knowledge or skills, for he is then but a barren tree. Then, so much as capacity and capability allow, ye needs must deck the tree of being with fruits such as knowledge, wisdom, spiritual perception and eloquent speech.”
(From a Tablet – translated from the Persian, Baha’u’llah, The Compilation of Compilations vol. I, p. 367)
About the video: “What qualities and virtues do we have? If not used, we lose them. It is important to teach children to practice these virtues along the road to adulthood. Music by Mana.” (by Tricia Hague-Barrett – TizArt Studio)
