What is Baha’u’llah’s mission about?

It is extraordinarily difficult to encapsulate concisely the mission of Baha’u’llah. Here is an attempt although the reader is cautioned that each sentence here is filled with massive implication, some of which have been explained in detail in the teachings of Baha’u’llah, and some which has not.

The goal is the unification of mankind.

The watchword is unity in diversity

Truthfulness is the foundation of all spiritual development.

Prayer is indispensable to spiritual development.

Prayer is turning the mind, opening to the bounty of, and conversing with God.

And so prayer engenders susceptibilities of the higher intelligences.

The higher intelligences support the development of knowledge for the service of mankind, the improvement of human relationships and human governance, the training of children and youth, and the growth of spiritual insights.

Spiritual insight forms the basis of sacrifice (given up the lesser for the greater).

The training of children and youth creates the basic capacity that an adult will require for the lifelong development of spiritual insights.

The improvement of human relationships grows from the spiritual foundations trained in the child and youth.

The development of knowledge for the service of mankind requires a balance of abilities to apply both the strongest science and the strongest ethic to advancements in research and product in a learning culture.

The improvements of human social governance grows from the ability to foster stronger interpersonal relationships and the application of the best knowledge to the solving of difficult problems.
