Some Bahá'í Teachings
Quotes from Bahá'í Scripture

"So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth"

The oneness of the world of humanity

"Be as one spirit, one soul, leaves of one tree, flowers of one garden, waves of one ocean."

The foundation of all religion is one

"All the divine Messengers... have proclaimed the oneness of God and the unity of mankind... the divine purpose is that men should love one another... The oneness of humanity is the primary foundation of them all."

Religion must be the cause of unity

"The fundamental basis of all religion is one... the essence of religion is human fellowship... if the reality underlying religious teaching be investigated all religions would be unified, and the purpose of God, which is love and the blending of human hearts would be accomplished."

Universal education

"The necessity of education for all mankind is evident... Through the broadening spirit of education, illiteracy will disappear, and misunderstandings due to ignorance will pass away."

Spiritual solution of economic problems

Independent investigation of truth

"Truth is one when it is independently investigated, it does not accept division."

Equality between men and women

"The world of humanity has two wings - one is women and the other men.  Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly."

"The happiness of mankind will be realized when women and men coordiante and advance equally."

Religion must be in accord with science and reason

"We may think of science as one wing and religion as the other; a bird needs two wings for flight, one alone would be useless... The true principles of all religions are in conformity with the teachings of science."

The elimination of prejudice

"Close your eyes to racial differences and welcome all with the light of oneness."

"Until all these barriers erected by prejudice are swept away, it is not possible for humanity to be at peace."

Univeral peace

"The greatest need in the world tody is international peace.  The time is ripe. It is time for the abolition of warfare, the unification of nations and governments. It is time for love."

A universal auxiliary language

"The day is approaching when all the peoples of the world will have adopted one universal language and one common script" [in addition to their own native tongue.]   "When this is achieved, to whatsoever city a man may journey, it shall be as if he were entering his own home."
