About

ObeisanceBaha is about the preservation of Baha’i history, its events, people, and places of occurrence. We provide discourse to encourage individual reflection on Baha’i history, events, and people (many little known) that occurred since 1965. This is based on the author’s experience and involvement with Baha’i activities, both in the United States and in many other countries. We must consider events within the timeframe of occurrence. The present state of Baha’i communities world-wide reflect not that which happened some years ago. Therefore, understanding context of occurrence is very important. It will require the reader to delve into resource materials for an in-depth enquiry into Baha’i history post-1965, referring to the social, cultural, political, and historical background and impact on the occurrence. This is important if the reader is to understand the underlying meanings expressed through this or any historical accounting.

Pupil of the Eye

The ‘Pupil of the Eye’ metaphor has both astounded and confused the Baha’i community mainly due to it being analyzed within the framework of current distorted historical narratives and dysfunctional social points-of-view.
