Paku Oma Sõprust

Love thou the children of men and share in their sorrows. Be thou of those who foster peace. Offer thy friendship, be worthy of trust. Be thou a balm to every sore, be thou a medicine for every ill. Bind thou the souls together. Recite thou the verses of guidance. Be engaged in the worship of thy Lord, and rise up to lead the people aright. Loose thy tongue and teach, and let thy face be bright with the fire of God’s love. Rest thou not for a moment, seek thou to draw no easeful breath. Thus mayest thou become a sign and symbol of God’s love, and a banner of His grace.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 26

Armasta inimlapsi ja võta osa nende muredest. Ole nende hulgas, kes edendavad rahu. Paku oma sõprust, ole usalduse vääriline. Ole palsa igale haavale, ole ravim igale haigusele. Ühenda hinged omavahel. Lausu juhenduse värsse. Ole hõivatud oma Issanda palvedamisega ja tõuse juhatama inimesi õigele teele. Vallanda oma keel õpetamiseks ja säragu sinu nägu Jumala amastuse tulest.
