My introduction to the tablet follows.

City of Radiant Acquiescence (Lawh-i Madinatu'r-Rida)

Baha'u'llah wrote different kinds of works; for example, poems, books of law, announcements of his revelation and commentaries on scripture. He also wrote works, such as the Seven Valleys, in which he describes the stages that our souls experience on our journey to God.
