Ruhi Book 6
Teaching the Cause
The spiritual nature of teaching, qualities and attitudes, and the act of teaching are the main themes explored in Teaching the Cause.
In the context of these themes, participants advance understanding of the way in which sharing the Revelation of Bahá'u'lláh with others constitutes a sacred duty. They also develop understanding of the relationship between this and the state of the world; the need for coherence between the inner and outer state of a teacher of the Faith; the need for purity of motivation and freedom from prejudice; the powers available to contribute to spiritual transformation; the power of the Word of God; the need to study and memorise the Word of God; the qualities of a teacher of the Cause including purity, faith, courage, kindness, friendliness and humility.
Participants also become familiar with a flow of information and concepts that can be helpful in sharing the Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh with others.
The capacities built include that of teaching the Faith through individual initiative and as part of collective teaching campaigns.

What is the Ruhi Institute sequence of courses?
Bahá'ís and likeminded friends are engaged in a global process of learning, to build their capacity to apply the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh to the transformation of society. As a contribution to this learning process, the Ruhi Institute has developed programs and materials that enhance the capacity of individuals and communities to serve humanity. Enhancing such capacity in the individual can be likened to walking a path of service.
What is a Study Circle?
A study circle begins whenever two or more individuals are ready to engage in the study of one of the courses of the Ruhi Institute. Participants in the study circle are led by a tutor whose role is not to act as an expert but as a facilitator. Participants in study circles are active participants in their own learning process.
