A couple of useful sites

Steve's blog continues to throw up interesting sites. The continuous feed down the left-hand side of his blog reveals interesting things as they roll by each week.

A couple of sites that I thought were worth pointing out were:

Baha'i Quotes Syndication Service at http://bahaiquotes.blogspot.com/. This is a blog with daily quotes from the writings. It was started up at New Year, 2006. The quotes are not too long and sometimes they have a nice picture with them.

Baha'i Prayers at http://www.bahaiprayers.org/. For those who don't have a Baha'i prayer book, this is a way of gaining access to Baha'i prayers. But if you're wanting to invest in a prayer book, I recommend the book Prayers and Meditations by Baha'u'llah, compiled and translated by Shoghi Effendi. Some of the meditations in the book are several pages long. Although they are included in a prayer book, they really are tablets in themselves. The book is available from the Baha'i Distribution Service. A comprehensive list of Baha'i publishers and distributors is found at Baha'i Faith Index - http://www.bahaindex.com/modules.php?name=Web_Links&l_op=viewlink&cid=61

Here's a nice quote, which is from the Baha'i Quotes site.

"Love is the mystery of divine revelations!
Love is the effulgent manifestation!
Love is the spiritual fulfillment!
Love is the light of the Kingdom!
Love is the breath of the Holy Spirit inspired into the human spirit!
Love is the cause of the manifestation of the Truth (God) in the phenomenal world!
Love is the necessary tie proceeding from the realities of things through divine creation!
Love is the means of the most great happiness in both the material and spiritual worlds!
Love is a light of guidance in the dark night!
Love is a bond between the Creator and the creature in the inner world!
Love is the cause of development to every enlightened man!
Love is the greatest law in this vast universe of God!
Love is the one law which causeth and controlleth order among the existing atoms!
Love is the universal magnetic power between the planets and stars shining in the lofty firmament!
Love is the cause of unfoldment to a searching mind, of the secrets deposited in the universe by the Infinite!
Love is the spirit of life in the bountiful body of the world!
Love is the cause of the civilization of nations in this mortal world!
Love is the highest honor to every righteous nation!"

(Abdu'l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha v3, p. 524)
