Ridvan celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God. The Ridvan Festival is 12 days long and is also the time of year where Baha’is elect their governing bodies.
In this short but fantastic and insightful talk Mr. Paul Lample, member of the Universal House of Justice, discusses the problem with believing we are right, consultation, how to reach the truth, and diversity of thought.
The talk is from 2014’s Association for Baha’i Studies (ABS) Conference which was held in Ottawa, Canada and the video is thoughtfully shared by the American Baha’i Community.
We created a video about the annual ABS conference and more information about the North American branch of the ABS can be found on their website.

I was unable to get this video of Paul Lample to work

I’m very sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulties watching the video. You have likely already done this but perhaps if you try watching it on another web browser you might have better luck. You could also try this link directly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeZLCH29sy8

Sadly, I don’t believe this talk has been transcribed but yes, it would be a good complement and definitely worth studying! Thank you for your question!
