O Thou kind Lord!
Thou hast created all humanity from the same stock. Thou hast decreed that all shall belong to the same household. In Thy Holy Presence they are all Thy servants, and all mankind are sheltered beneath Thy Tabernacle; all have gathered together at Thy Table of Bounty; all are illumined through the light of Thy Providence.
O God! Thou art kind to all, Thou hast provided for all, dost shelter all, conferrest life upon all. Thou hast endowed each and all with talents and faculties, and all are submerged in the Ocean of Thy Mercy.
O Thou kind Lord! Unite all. Let the religions agree and make the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family and the whole earth as one home. May they all live together in perfect harmony.
O God! Raise aloft the banner of the oneness of mankind.
O God! Establish the Most Great Peace.
Cement Thou, O God, the hearts together.
O Thou kind Father, God! Gladden our hearts through the fragrance of Thy love. Brighten our eyes through the Light of Thy Guidance. Delight our ears with the melody of Thy Word, and shelter us all in the Stronghold of Thy Providence.
Thou art the Mighty and Powerful, Thou art the Forgiving and Thou art the One Who overlooketh the shortcomings of all mankind.

O SON OF MAN! My calamity is My providence, outwardly it is fire and vengeance, but inwardly it is light and mercy. Hasten thereunto that thou mayest become an eternal light and an immortal spirit. This is My command unto thee, do thou observe it.
O SOHN DES MENSCHEN! Mein Trübsal ist meine Vorsehung. Äußerlich ist sie Feuer und Züchtigung, zuinnerst aber Licht und Gnade. Eile ihr entgegen, auf daß du ein ewiges Licht und ein unsterblicher Geist werdest. Dies ist mein Gebot an dich, beachte es!

What better way to prepare for the Bicentennial Birth of Baha’u’llah than this!
Hit me up on Social Media:
This video is not representative of the totality of what accompaniment looks like, it’s just a few friends dedicated in their local neighbourhoods who have gathered to discuss what they have so far learned and how we can keep on learning and growing our communities. That’s why I didn’t allow a full discussion to be in this video, rather my video is to merely show that such conversations are taking place in this dark age of the world, that there are individuals who exist that are committed to building up a new “Divine Civilization” as envisioned by Baha’u’llah (The Blessed Beauty).
Song by A Himitsu – Astray feat. Madi Larson
As the Baha’i Community awaits the near 200 year birth of Baha’u’llah on November 2017 and then the 200 year birth of the Bab on November 2019 (“Lunar Calander”, meeting the provisions of the Most Holy Book, Kitab-i-Aqdas), the Baha’i Community of Davis California has put together a video as a way to celebrate theTwin Holy Days in such a time of “Special Potency” as the Universal House of Justice writes in the latest Five-Year-Plan (December 29, 2015).
With much joy and pure excitement, I offer the whole world this amazing video for all to enjoy, share, comment, and like!
May the celebration of these Twin Holy Birthdays inspire humanity to arise and serve this Great Cause of God, and bear the responsibility of constructing what it was destined.
May the world finally recognize Baha’u’llah and apply His teachings to remedy the maladies of the present day’s social order that is crumbling for a new one to be laid out in its stead. An order that is none other than the establishment of unity in the world, and the emergence of the Divine Civilization ordained by God.

This song is dedicated to the seven former leaders of the Baha’i community in Iran. Known collectively as the Yaran, they were sentenced to twenty years imprisonment simply for being Baha’is. They have been incarcerated since 2008 and still have 13 years of their sentence to serve.
