Your Story Matters
Welcome to BahaiTeachings.org! We helped create this platform so individuals could share their personal perspectives and insights as they strive to implement the Baha’i teachings in their everyday lives.
The official website of the Baha’i Faith is Bahai.org and the official website of the Baha’is of the United States is Bahai.us. Please visit those sites, too!
Personal Perspectives Inspired by Baha’i Teachings
The Baha’i Faith has no clergy and invites everyone to take part in a life-long process of independent investigation and learning about how lofty spiritual principles—such as the elimination of prejudice, the essential harmony of all religious truth, and the equality of women and men—can translate into a new social reality. Baha’is believe that the central teaching of the Baha’i Faith, the oneness of humanity, will ultimately usher in the long-promised age of global justice, peace and collective human maturation. The primary purpose of BahaiTeachings.org is to help advance this humanitarian process.
Organized in a worldwide network of democratically-elected councils, called Spiritual Assemblies, the global Baha’i community thrives in thousands of localities across the United States, and in more than 180 countries. Baha’is in all those places engage in a process of learning, action and reflection about the process of spiritual community building. We invite our readers to engage in learning more about the Baha’i teachings through direct action at the grassroots in your local Baha’i community. By filling out the contact forms on this site, you can meet Baha’is near you. You don’t have to become a member of the Baha’i Faith to take part in a wide range of fulfilling community building activities, such as study circles, prayer gatherings, and activities for children and teens—everyone is welcome.
