Drawing Nigh to Baha’u’llah – A Series of 12 Talks Given by Adib Taherzadeh

January 9, 2020, in Articles > Audio, by

Baha’i Blog is thrilled to share this series of 12 talks collectively called “Drawing Nigh to Baha’u’llah” given at the Alaskan Baha’i Summer School in 1984 by Adib Taherzadeh.

Adib Taherzadeh was a member of the Universal House of Justice, the governing body of the international Baha’i community. You can read more about his life in this One World newsletter article from the Baha’i International Community: Adib Taherzadeh, member of the Universal House of Justice, passes away.

Of his many legacies, Adib Taherzadeh’s scholarship and strength as a writer live on in his works, such as the four volumes of ‘The Revelation of Baha’u’llah’. You can read more about these invaluable books in this Baha’i Blog article: ‘The Revelation of Baha’u’llah’ Books by Adib Taherzadeh

A very special thanks to the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Alaska (www.akbahai.org), and to Peaceful Pages for permission to republish these talks.

Dear friends, It has taken me awhile but I finally listened to the first 10 of the 12 talks given by Adib Taherzedeh “Drawing Nigh to Baha’u’llah”. Then I ran into a little problem.. When I downloaded talk 11 of the 12 it turned out to be the tape already downloaded as talk 10 of 12. No matter what I do I cannot get talk 11 of 12 to download. I am working from the Soundcloud Chart at [https://www.bahaiblog.net/2020/01/drawing-nigh-to-bahaullah-a-series-of-12-talks-given-by-adib-taherzadeh/#more-54663]. The only thing I can think of is that number 10 was loaded as number 11 and either nobody listened to them all or no one reported the problem. I’m sorry to be a bother but I have listened very carefull to the series so far and truly hope to finish the set. Perhaps you could check into it for me. Thank you for your service and assistance.

Sincerely, Will

Thank-you so much for making sure this is published. A friend of mine had it on CD and I have listened to it many times. It is very inspiring, and important to be shared and accessible to all!

Is there a summary available for each of the talks — or a listing of topics for each talk — so that we can easily find one that we remember and want to hear again?

Thanks.

Hi Amy,

That’s a great question. Unfortunately, it isn’t something we have put together and we currently lack the resources to do so. If you happen to create such a summary, or if anyone makes one in the future, we’ll be glad to add it!

Thanks for asking!
