Meditations is a collection of passages that helps to encourage and support the habit of regular reflection and meditation and assists readers of any faith on their spiritual path. A rich and inspiring sample of the vast body of Bahá’í scripture, this collection will appeal to everyone. It includes passages from the writings of Bahá’u’lláh, as well as from those of His forerunner, the Báb, and those of His son ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
Among the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh is that the primary purpose of life is to know and love God. In the Bahá’í Faith, as in every religion, prayer and meditation are fundamental tools for spiritual development. Their daily practice enables us to commune with God and sustains and strengthens our souls. Through daily mediation, Bahá’u’lláh writes, “the secret of things unseen” is revealed and “the sweetness of a spiritual and imperishable fragrance” is inhaled.
