The Journey West podcast celebrates the centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s travels to Egypt, Europe and North America in 1911-1913. Each episode features a reading of one of Abdu’l-Baha’s talks, as well as dramatized stories and historical accounts. Each episode concludes with a discussion of the talk that was featured.
In this episode, we hear about a talk given by Abdu’l-Baha on November 1, 1911 about the two natures of man. He explained that “in man there are two natures; his spiritual or higher nature and his material or lower nature. In one he approaches God, in the other he lives for the world alone. Signs of both these natures are to be found in men.” You can find out more about the context of that talk, as well as who helped put this podcast episode together, on The Journey West website here.
