Addresses Given by 'Abdu'l-Bahá in 1911

Despite old age and poor health, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá set out from Palestine in 1911 on a momentous series of journeys to Europe and the United States. The purpose of his trip was to share the teachings and vision of the Bahá'í Faith with the people of the West.

This collection of inspiring and uplifting talks documents an extraordinary series of public addresses ‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave on his historic trip to the West in the early twentieth century. Addressing such subjects as the nature of humankind, the soul, the Prophets of God, the establishment of world peace, the abolition of all forms of prejudice, the equality of men and women, the harmony of science and religion, and the causes of war, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spoke in a profound yet simple manner that transcended all barriers.

About 'Abdu'l-Bahá [MENU]

‘Abdu’l-Bahá is the title adopted by the Son of Bahá’u’lláh. His given name was Abbas. He was born in 1844 in what is now Irán and died in 1921 in what is now Israel.

As Bahá’u’lláh’s successor, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá served as Head of the Bahá’í Faith from 1892 to his death. As the chosen interpreter of His Writings, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá expounded upon the teachings of His Father’s Faith, amplified its doctrines, and outlined the central features of its administrative institutions. He wrote over 25,000 tablets, only a fraction of which are translated into English. Many of His lectures and speeches were also documented, some of which are published.
