We’re excited to share a four-part series of talks given by Professor Nader Saiedi called “Baha’u’llah and Peace”. These talks were given at the Santa Monica Baha’i Center in California, USA, during 2018, and in these talks, Professor Saiedi explores four areas within the context of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation that relate to peace, and how the Revelation of Baha’u’llah reconstructs certain concepts.
The four talks in this series called “Baha’u’llah & Peace” are:
1. The Reconstruction of the Concept of Victory: Listen on Soundcloud / Listen on YouTube
2. The Reconstruction of Mystical Poetry: Listen on Soundcloud / Listen on YouTube
3. The Reconstruction of Interpretation: Listen on Soundcloud / Listen on YouTube
4. The Reconstruction of the Temple: Listen on Soundcloud / Listen on YouTube
You can also find a link to the handout given at each talk in the information found below each talk.

I’m very excited about bandlists on YouTube. They are beautiful pictures. It’s great fun

Is there another place to access the handouts on these talks? The Scribd paywall doesn’t allow downloading or printing. It makes it difficult to delve deeper into the texts and write my own notes.

Hi Erik, I’ll email them to you. 🙂

I must say, I got a little emotional (a little tear of happiness). I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but I’m so unaccustomed to responsiveness. Thanks so much. I love this site.
