FACULTY: Christopher Buck, Necati Alkan
In Baha’u’llah’s Early Mystic Writings we will explore a theme that dominates Baha’u’llah’s early writings and continues throughout His revelation: the relationship of the individual to spiritual reality—to God, to spiritual truths, to principles of personal development, and to laws of conduct. We will explore Baha’u’llah’s Rashh-i-`Ama and some of His early poetry, The Four Valleys, The Seven Valleys, The Hidden Words, and the Tablet of the Holy Mariner. We will also read some Sufi texts that provide historical and literary context for allusions Baha’u’llah makes in His writings. We will round out our study with extensive commentaries and study materials by Baha'is on Baha’u’llah’s early mystic writings.
You may join our online learning
community as an individual or as part of a study group (2 to 20
people). In either case, you can do all your work at home at any time
of the day or night. We assign mentors to to advise, encourage,
assist, and answer questions. Groups are expected to meet every week
or two for group discussions. Web-based forums connect all
learners--individuals and members of a group--to the insights and
perspectives of fellow students from all over the world.
