Visiting ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Vol. 1

The West Discovers the Master: 1897-1911

Stories illustrating how ‘Abdu’l-Bahá taught and interacted with others.

This book is based largely on the notes of pilgrims and others who visited the Master in the Holy Land. As such, they must be viewed simply as personal impressions, but impressions ‘of a most precious character’. Those who had the privilege of meeting ‘Abdu’l-Bahá carried these impressions with them until the end of their lives, and their pen-pictures have become an inspiration to many, both believers and the general public, in the century since His passing.

This volume covers the time from 1897 until the Master’s departure on His journey to the West.

Among those who visit ‘Akká, some have made great forward strides. Lightless candles, they were set alight; withered, they began to bloom; dead, they were recalled to life and went home with tidings of great joy. ⏤ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
