Prayers & Meditations
Biographies and History
Here are the core texts of the Baha’i Revelation – the writings of Baha’u’llah, the Bab, and Abdu’l-Baha. Several are available in multiple editions, depending on your budget and intended recipient. Every other book on this site is secondary to these. No scholar, no historian, no institution can tell you what these words mean. They are between you and God. — Enjoy
Topical compilations from the Bahai Sacred Texts are also in this section.
“Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths.” -Baha’u’llah
This sections also includes biographies of the holy family as well as well-known early Bahais. This is also where you will find memoirs and stories of Bahais and Bahai Communities.
Bahai Deepening Books
When Baha’u’llah describes His revelation as an “ocean,” He is not exaggerating. No matter how long you’ve been a Baha’i, there will always be more to learn, or some principle to explore more deeply. If you want to learn more history, check out our Biographies category. To dive into the Writings themselves, check out the “Baha’i Sacred Writings” category.
The books here will help you explore the principles of the Faith more deeply, and to find practical applications for them in your own life. Some are broad explorations of a wide range of Baha’i teachings, while others dive deeply into just one or two.
No matter which area you decide to explore, you will find pearls of wisdom that you never dreamed existed. Enjoy.
Every Bahai needs at least two, one to use and one to give a friend.
