This devotional program was presented at the Bahá'í House of Worship on September 5, 2010. Before going upstairs into the temple, I joked to my friend that I wanted to go downstairs to the bookstore, to be material before being spiritual. The architecture is inspiring enough, but the devotions and music were, well, heavenly :-).

Devotional Program: Creating Material Balance
The Bab's Legacy
Having promulgated a new religion, having laid claim to be the Promised One of God, Siyyid ‘Alí Muhammad of Shiraz, known as the Báb, and his followers, were oppressed and persecuted from the beginning of His Mission in 1844. After 6 tumultuous years, the clergy and government of Persia agreed to a sentence of death. Imprisoned in the remote capital of Tabriz, the Báb and a young follower named Anís were executed in a spectacular, seemingly-miraculous fashion.
