Basic Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh

  Bahá'u'lláh taught that there is one God whose successive revelations of His will to humanity have been the chief civilizing force in history. The agents of this process have been the Divine Messengers whom people have seen chiefly as the founders of separate religious systems but whose common purpose has been to bring the human race to spiritual and moral maturity.

  Humanity is now coming of age. It is this that makes possible the unification of the human family and the building of a peaceful, global society. Among the principles which the Bahá'í Faith promotes as vital to the achievement of this goal are:

* the abandonment of all forms of prejudice

* assurance to women of full equality of opportunity with men

* recognition of the unity and relativity of religious truth

* the elimination of extremes of poverty and wealth

* the realization of universal education

* the responsibility of each person to independently search for truth

* the establishment of a global commonwealth of nations

* recognition that true religion is in harmony with reason and the pursuit of scientific knowledge

“Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley, and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention of God hath been made, and His praise glorified.”
