Ruhi Book 11 Unit 3 (POD)

Material Means

The relationship between material means and spiritual principles that govern a truly prosperous society is the major theme of Material Means.

Unit 3: The Law of Ḥuqúqu’lláh
The third unit of the course on Material Means seeks to foster an understanding of the significance of the law for individuals and society and to inspire a commitment to discharge this sacred obligation. The first of the three main themes is Divine law including the role of the laws of God in the upraising of the World Order of Baha’u’llah. The second theme pertains to the way the law of Ḥuqúqu’lláh affects individual and collective life, both materially and spiritually, and how it embodies the spiritual principles that must find expression in the economic system of the future. The third theme focuses attention on the wider implications of the law for the economic systems and structures of a future global civilization.

The relationship between material means and spiritual principles that govern a truly prosperous society is the major theme of Material Means, which is still under development by the Ruhi Institute.

Ruhi Institute

Bahá'ís everywhere are engaged in a global process of learning that is helping 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 carries out action and research in the field, in order to develop programs and materials that enhance the capacity of individuals and communities to serve humanity.

The main sequence of courses is organized so as to set the individual, whether Baha'i or not, on a path being defined by the accumulating experience of the community in its endeavour to open before humanity the vision of Baha'u'llah's World Order.

The very notion of a path is, itself, indicative of the nature and purpose of the courses, for a path invites participation, it beckons to new horizons, it demands effort and movement, it accommodates different paces and strides, it is structured and defined. A path can be experienced and known, not only by one or two but by scores upon scores; it belongs to the community. To walk a path is a concept equally expressive. It requires of the individual volition and choice; it calls for a set of skills and abilities but also elicits certain qualities and attitudes; it necessitates a logical progression but admits, when needed, related lines of exploration; it may seem easy at the outset but becomes more challenging further along. And crucially, one walks the path in the company of others.
