NIDHI PARKASH's quotes

Kindness of Strangers

NIDHI PARKASH's picture



Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness and a home to the strangers. Be eye to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be a breath of life to the body of humankind, dew to the soil of the human heart, and a fruit upon the tree of humanity.

— Baha'i Prayer

Getting the first and foremost requisite, the human body, which is like a strong boat, so difficult to secure, yet within easy reach ------ with the teacher as his helmsman, and propelled by Me[God]as a favorable wind, with such means as these the man who does not strive to cross the ocean of worldly existence verily commits suicide.

May my speech be engaged in the narration of Thy attributes. May my ears be engaged in hearing about Thee. May my hands be occupied with the performance of Thy deeds. May my mind be engaged in remembering Thee. May my head be engaged in bowing down to the universe, Thy abode. May my eyes be engaged in seeing the holy men, Thy visible forms.

In this world, O Lord, in search of wealth I found Thee the greatest treasure. In this world, O Lord, in search of a friend I have found Thee the sole dependable one. In this world, O Lord, in search of someone to love, I have found Thee the most lovable one. Where else but at Thy blessed feet shall I seek refuge. Thou art my sole Support, my sole Friend, my sole Abode, my sole Goal, Thou art my All-in-All.
