In the Baha'i Writings the religions of the world are regarded as lamps that shed Light unto all humankind.  To argue, fight and divide over which lamp is best is to miss their most essential purpose: to light the way to peace through human unity. 

 

When humanity divides over such fundamental truths the Light in these lamps begins to fade, like the scattered embers of a once glowing fire.

Therefore, the Baha'i Teachings advise us to... 

Be a lover of the Light, no matter the Lamp.

Wherever truth is found to illuminate the global landscape and fosters peace & harmony among all humankind, turn to that Light!

What Is The Baha'i Faith?

Stained Glass Praise

"All the Prophets

are the Temples of the Cause of God,

Who have appeared clothed in divers attire.

If thou wilt observe with discriminating eyes,

thou wilt behold Them all

abiding in the same tabernacle,

soaring in the same heaven,

seated upon the same throne,

uttering the same speech,

and proclaiming the same Faith.

Such is the unity of those Essences of Being,

those Luminaries of infinite and immeasurable splendor!"
