Worldview and the Law of the Persian Bayan – A Series of 4 Talks by Dr. Nader Saiedi
In this series of four talks by Dr. Nader Saiedi called ‘Worldview and the Law of the Persian Bayan’, Dr. Saiedi offers a holistic, yet concise look at the Persian Bayan, the Mother Book of the Bab’s Dispensation. These talks explore the worldview offered in the Persian Bayan by looking at the work in its totality, as well as examining its laws, commandments and ordinances.
These four talks were given at the Santa Monica Baha’i Center (USA) in September of 2019, and a very special thanks to Dr. Nader Saiedi and the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Santa Monica, California, for allowing Baha’i Blog to publish these talks.
