“Temples are the symbols of the divine uniting force”The graceful movements of heavenly planets were the architect’s inspiration for this Baha'i House of Worship near Chicago. But it was ‘Abdu’l-Baha who defined the temple’s true purpose, and who, with simple but profound logic, challenged the presumption of holding a human-centric view of things above the divine.

The Drop and the Ocean
|Scene from 2012 Devotional Concert |
Baha'i House of Worship - Wilmette, IL
". . . No matter how far the human intelligence may advance, it is still but a drop, while divine omniscience is the ocean. Shall we say that a drop is imbued or endowed with qualities of which the ocean is devoid? Shall we believe that the policy and plan of this atom of a human soul are superior to the wisdom of the Omniscient? There is no greater ignorance than this.”
