- 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.”
In this beautiful video set to music, we see how the four seasons surround the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois, USA throughout a whole year.
The Baha’i temple in Wilmette was designed by French Canadian architect Louis Bourgeois and opened its doors to the public in May 1953. It is the oldest House of Worship in the world, and the only one in the United States.
