From Letters Written on Behalf of Shoghi Effendi

53: “The choice you have made for your course of study is surely most…”

The choice you have made for your course of study is surely most interesting and will be of inestimable service in your work for the Cause. Even though every branch of study will have some interest for a Bahá’í who 19 is looking how the spirit of the Cause and of the the new age is awakening the minds, yet a study of the condition of society will better show us the needs of the world, hence the part that the Teachings can play in satisfying them.
