“O ye two merciful assemblies!…”

O ye two merciful assemblies! 1
Praise be to God! that through the outpouring of guidance, India is rapidly becoming a Rose-garden of Abha, for many souls have lately embraced the truth and are in the utmost attraction and enkindlement.
Forward ye, as soon as ye can, a few copies of every Tablet and epistle which is translated into the English and the books which are written by the believers, in this language, to the merciful assembly of Bombay and to his honor ….….. in Rangoon.
O ye spiritual friends of Abdul-Baha! At this moment when danger is threatening to surround all 635 directions, Abdul-Baha is attracted to the fragrances of the Kingdom of Abha and with infinite joy and happiness is begging providence and favor from the Threshold of Oneness in your behalf. Now is the time of firmness and resolution and the moment of steadfastness and constancy and the period of showing forth divine power by the strength of proof, the solidity of argument, the eloquence of utterance and the grandeur of spirit!
1. This Tablet bears the following heading: “To the members of the Spiritual Assembly of Chicago and the Spiritual Assembly of New York.”   [ Back To Reference]
