“Every created thing in the whole universe is but a door leading into His knowledge…”— Bahá’u’lláh
The Bahá’í Writings explain that the reality of God is beyond the understanding of any mortal mind, though we may find expressions of His attributes in every created thing. Throughout the ages, He has sent a succession of Divine Messengers, known as Manifestations of God, to educate and guide humanity, awakening in whole populations capacities to contribute to the advancement of civilization to an extent never before possible.
Manifestations of God cultivate humanity’s spiritual, intellectual and moral capacities.
“Say: Nature in its essence is the embodiment of My Name, the Maker, the Creator.”
Humanity, having passed through the ages of infancy and childhood, now stands at the threshold of its collective maturity, the hallmark of which will be the unification of the human race in a global civilization.
