Summary

This collection of inspiring and uplifting talks documents an extraordinary series of public addresses ‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave on his historic trip to the West in the early 20th century. Despite advanced age and poor health, he set out from Palestine in 1911 on a momentous journey to Europe and North America to share the teachings and vision of the Bahá’í Faith with the people of the West.

Addressing such subjects as the nature of humankind, the soul, the Prophets of God, the establishment of world peace, the abolition of all forms of prejudice, the equality of women and men, the harmony of science and religion, the causes of war, and many other subjects, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spoke in a profound yet simple manner that transcended social and cultural barriers. His deep spiritual wisdom remains as timely and soul-stirring as it was nearly a century ago.

‘Abdu'l-Bahá, meaning “Servant of the Glory,” is the title assumed by ‘Abbás Effendi (1844–1921)—the eldest son and appointed successor of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet and Founder of the Bahá’í Faith. A prisoner since the age of nine, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá shared a lifetime of imprisonment and exile with his father at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. He spent his entire life in tireless service to, and promotion of, Bahá’u’lláh’s cause and is considered by Bahá’ís to be the perfect exemplar of the Faith’s teachings.

Surprisingly relevant to our modern day

These inspiring talks were recorded over 100 years ago but the content seems timeless. This audiobook made me feel like I was in the room with a man who walks the mystic path with practical feet. It is easy to understand why His followers refer to the author of these words by the title 'The Master'
