This teaching card rapidly became one of our best sellers because it compresses an amazing amount of information in an extremely small space. It is also a very non-threatening way to introduce people to the name of Baha’u’llah right up-front. It was so popular that we used it as the basis for our booklet “Tell Me About Baha’u’llah” (BKT-19). To give your teaching efforts a more coordinated feel, we’ve redesigned the card to match the cover of the booklet. They also match the Names of Baha’u’llah wall hanging/flag, and the background matches our large Bicentenary Backdrop.
Consider using these as small “table tents” at each seat at your commemoration.
The back reads:
Like all Prophets, Baha’u’llah lived a life of sacrifice and service. Like Buddha, He was a nobleman who gave up His wealth and power to teach the Word of God. Like Abraham, He was exiled from His native land. Like Moses, He guided His followers to new understandings for forty years. Like Jesus, He was persecuted and tortured by the leaders of His time. Despite this oppression, He founded a community which is established in more countries than Judaism or Islam and is still growing. His teachings, once considered dangerous, are now recognized as visionary prescriptions for humanity’s survival.
For these reasons, and so many more, the life and teachings of Baha’u’llah deserve your serious consideration.
The inside still matches the original, and reads:
Bahá’u’lláh explains that:
The purpose of life is to know and love God, and acquire heavenly virtues such as faith, wisdom and compassion.
We learn about God and divine virtues by studying the lives and teachings of His Messengers such as Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Mohammed, Krishna and Bahá’u’lláh.
The religions that these spiritual Teachers brought are all connected – like chapters in a single book of revelation.
As humanity matures, we become ready to hear deeper spiritual truths and practice greater levels of unity.
We are ready to recognize the oneness of humanity, the equality of women and men, the harmony of science and religion, the value of education, the spiritual nature of families, and the promise of world peace.
We are ready to accept ourselves as noble creations and develop our untapped potential as spiritual beings.
Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings connect the personal with the global and the practical with the mystical in ways that open us to new ways of living with one another in unity.

Twice the size and pre-scored, these cost a bit more than our other teaching cards.
