  1. I, Bahereh Khodadoost, a Baha’i for many years, absolutely loved listenning to these series of Talks given by Mr. Nader Saeidi; not only enlightening and informative, also it reassured me that I am not alone in my way of thinking all these years, 69 years! So thank you, thank you, & thank you♥♡ I hope the Baha’i Community to hear this call, & to open up, & I say this with absolute sincerity from the bottom of my heart.
