“It is indubitably clear, that the pivot of the oneness of mankind is nothing else but the power of the Covenant […] The power of the Covenant is as the heat of the sun which quickeneth and promoteth the development of all created things on earth. The light of the Covenant, in like manner, is the educator of the minds, the spirits, the hearts and souls of men.”
– Abdu’l-Baha
