Presentation of Bahá’í World Faith Beppe Robiati World Order World Order
The Baha'ì Faith: Independent and Revealed World Religion Bahá’ís are all those women, men and youth, coming from all nations, races, religions, cultures and societies of the world and who have accepted the message of Bahá’u’lláh. Bahá’u’lláh, who was born in Iran in the last century (1817-1892), suffered throughout all His life to bring His Message: He has been exiled, persecuted, tortured, chained and confined to long years of imprisonment. Moreover, after having been deprived of his personal goods and properties, His family was decimated and more than 20.000 of His followers have been killed. The Message carried by Bahá'u’lláh is of the SPIRITUAL AND SOCIAL UNITY OF THE WORLD. There isn’t a God for the Christians, another for the Hindu, and one for the Muslims, but God is only One for humankind. God has revealed Himself at different times in history through Manifestations of God, Who have educated mankind. The existing religions are the expressions of these Revelations, and their apparent diversity is due to the varieties of cultures and historical period in which there religions have appeared and flourished. Krishna, Abraham, Buddha, Zoroaster, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, Bahá’u’lláh, are all rays and expressions of the same Divine Truth and Reality. From a historical perspective, Bahá’u’lláh is the most recent Manifestation and will in the future be followed by other Manifestations of God, when mankind will necessitate.Each Manifestation of God carries a spiritual and social message which in its spiritual essence is the same one of all other religions, but whose social implications and laws varies depending on the needs of humanity and its historical circumstances. In order to be able to solve the numerous existing problems, Bahá’u’lláh says that the age in which we live needs the message of the spiritual, social, political and economic UNITY of the world: SPIRITUAL UNITY: all religions come from God, and they must be a source of harmony, love and justice. Religion, Bahá’u’lláh says, is not about rituals, cults, ceremonies and dogmas, but it is an individual deep spiritual feeling and consequent behaviour in life. (see also, on turn on your speaker, the power point: One God) POLITICAL- ECONOMIC UNITY: all nations may become one Planet, with a world government, an international law, a world currency, a universal language, one common faith. (See also the power point presentation on “The World Order of Baha’u’llah”) SOCIAL UNITY: we are all flowers of one garden, waves of one sea. Baha’u’llah regards human beings as flowers of one garden: despite their differences in species, colour and shape, because they are refreshed and nurtured by the same water and thanks to their diversity, acquire even more beauty. How unpleasant to the eye would be if all the flowers had the same shape, same colour and same fragrance. On the other hand, the garden is enriched and beautified by the diversity of colours and difference, whose effect and impact are much greater. Similarly, this applies to human beings in the world.
