Quote of the Moment

"Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge."

- Baha'u'llah: Gleanings, CXXX

Bahá'í Education

PrintE-mail

The writings of the Bahá'í Faith affirm that spiritual education is at the heart of an educational process that leads to the elevation and transformation of the human spirit. Since there is no clergy within the Bahá'í Faith, it is each person's individual responsibiltiy to seek the truth for him or herself.

However, that is not to say that each of us pursues this journey of spiritual education alone and without assistance. There are a number of services and a weatlth of resources to assist. This site provides a range of information and resources that promotes the spiritual education of adults, youth, and children alike.
