Thanks to the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Santa Monica, California we’re happy to share with everyone this set of talks held at the Santa Monica Baha’i Centre given by Professor Amin Banani in 2003 on the “World Order of Baha’u’llah”.
Professor Amin Banani has authored numerous scholarly works and was a longtime professor of Persian history and literature at the University of California, Los Angeles. He served the Baha’i Faith in a wide range of roles including being a member of the Board of Trustees of Ḥuqúqu’lláh for the United States for more than two decades, and also an advocate for the Baha’i Faith at the United Nations. He and his wife, Sheila, were Knights of Baha’u’llah for their role in the founding of the national Baha’i community of Greece. Professor Banani passed away on July 28, 2013 at the age of 86. (Read more about Amin Banani here.)
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
Such wonderful words from Mr Banani sharing the Guardians letters. Thank you for making this available to us. A treasure.
