Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah who referred to Him as “the Mystery of God” and “a shelter for all mankind”, however Abdu’l-Baha preferred to be called “Abdu’l-Baha” which means “the Servant of Baha” in reference to His servitude to Baha’u’llah.

Recreating Ourselves in the Image of the Master – Tom Price
Baha’i music composer Tom Price recently delivered six great new talks at the 2012 Tennessee Baha’i School, called “Recreating Ourselves in the Image of the Master”.
For those of you who have yet to hear one of Tom’s talks, you’re in for a treat! Last year we posted Tom Price’s talks on The Five Year Plan and it’s still one of our most popular posts ever!
In these wonderful talks Tom Price shares six of Abdu’l-Baha’s attributes and looks at how we can learn from them and adopt them into our own lives.
Abdu’l-Baha, (also referred to as the Master) was Baha’u’llah’s eldest son and appointed successor, and He is considered the perfect example of how to live according to the Baha’i teachings. This year also marks the 100th anniversary of Abdu’l-Baha’s visit to North America, and Baha’i communities across the US and Canada have been celebrating His visit.
You can listen to these talks by either streaming them or by downloading them – and best of all, it’s completely free!
We hope you enjoy these talks as much as we do, and please let us know what you think in the comments section and feel free to share this post with your friends.
Happy Listening, and a BIG THANK YOU to Tom Price for this wonderful service!
