Pondering the Fire Tablet

Reflections on Bahá’u’lláh’s “Fire Tablet”

The last paragraph of Bahá’u’lláh’s “Fire Tablet” advises that: “the servants read and ponder this…” This essay suggests ways to do that and become enchanted with that unique Tablet. Here is what some readers have said:

“I have to admit that the Fire Tablet was not my favourite spiritual reference. I was usually over-whelmed and lacking the understanding to its many references….This (booklet) has read like a cliff hanger for me – reading as fast as I could to see what more explanation you could present. I will now go thru the book slowly and gather the many pieces of ‘pondering’ it shares!”

“Illuminating! It brings the Tablet to life!”
“Refreshing new views, suggesting other insights to be discovered.”

“It is a ‘sweet’, thoughtful, in-depth (but of course not exhaustive) study of the Tablet. I found it stretching my intellect, spiritual perceptive and my knowledge of the English language. The humility with which you approach the Tablet, the reflections and questions you offer are totally without affectation.”
