“…true faith is no mere acknowledgement of the unity of God,
but rather the living of a life that will manifest all the perfections and virtues…” –‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Articles and Resources
A selection of readings, essays, and resource materials on the subject of devotion.

From the Writings and Talks of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
From Paris Talks
In this address given in London in January, 1913, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá reflects on the faculty of meditation, “the key for opening the doors of mysteries” through which human beings commune with their own spirits and make great discoveries.

Prayers
A Selection of Bahá’í Prayers
A small selection of the thousands of prayers revealed by Bahá’u’lláh, the Báb, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

The Obligatory Prayers
Bahá’u’lláh invested a few prayers with special power. These include three obligatory prayers revealed by Him. Bahá’ís recite one of these each day: either a short prayer of a few brief lines, which is said between noon and sunset; a medium obligatory prayer of several verses, which is recited in the morning, at noon, and in the evening; or a long prayer, which is recited once in twenty-four hours.

Essays
