Baha'u'llah's Teachings on Spiritual Reality
This compilation was assembled to provide inquirers and new Bahá’ís on the Bahá’í view of what spiritual reality, what it means to be spiritual, progress of the soul, and spiritual education. It can also reacquaint Bahá’ís of longer experience with prayer and meditation, mastery of self, suffering, immortality, sacrifice, etc. Just as science is the source of understanding the laws of physical reality, true religion, based on scientific methods stripped of empty tradition and superstition, is a source of understanding of the laws of spiritual reality. Bahá'u'lláh explains that knowledge about spiritual reality comes to humanity through a series of divine teachers – the Founders of the great world religions. Spirituality is the process of systematically translating this knowledge into action for personal growth, the ordering of society, and the advancement of civilization.
