  • I am always deeply moved by the comming together of peoples of many places in the world, to further world vision.
    I am a woman, a Baha’i and an artist. My art seeks to unite the unseen world of the soul, emotions, spirit, and the writings of the Baha’i Faith along with findings in science.

    I am a Baha’i, and I want to express my humble opinion about the universality and equality of religions (hence, persecution is wrong):

    The master asked his disciple:
    -After long years of learning, contemplating, training…have you determined the purpose of your life?
    Answer: Dear master, it is to realize oneself.

    -But what is self-realization?
    – Living fully to understand life, to enjoy and to beautify it.
    – Then, are you as accomplished as a bee?

    The master continued:
    – In fact, one lives for dying.
    – Master, it is evident that all people die.

    -Yes my dear, it is dying without regrets.
    – How could we be regretful once we had conducted a beautiful life?

    -Because, we all will suddenly enter the Presence of God at His asking:
    So noble I have created thee, with such capacities and talents, and I educated thee with My boundless love, why your final accomplishment is not equal to a bee?
    Well, will you answer Him that you have lived a wonderful life, you have made most prudent preparations for this eternal reunion?
