The Pure in Heart
This document by Jimmy Seow is an essential first step for anyone wishing to trace the history of Bahá'í teaching of the Chinese in the Far East. It exhaustively catalogues the growth of the Faith in the scattered outposts where courageous early believers carried the Words of Bahá’u’lláh. Although I have lived in Asia for twenty years, it was from The Pure in Heart that I learned of Haji Mirza Muhammad – Ali, the first Bahá'í to live in China (1862-1868), of Dr Y.S. Tsao, the Bahá'í President of Xinhua University in Beijing, and of Chan S. Liu, the first translator into Chinese of the Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh. These and other names are reassuring to me in what often feels a lonely journey towards a new World Order which will include ‘the simple-hearted and truth-seeing Chinese’. ~ Dr Michael Bond
