From the Back Cover:

Abdul-Baha (1844-1921) was one of the first spiritual teachers from the East to visit Europe and North America. He spent most of his life a prisoner of the Iranian and Ottoman governmentsexiled and imprisoned for five decades for advocating religious and political reforms. Abdul-Baha was finally released from prison in 1906 at the age of 62. He immediately began to preach his gospel of religious unity and racial harmony outside of the Middle East.

On his visit to the United States in 1912, he was hailed by the Western press and leading intellectuals of the day as the preeminent spokesman of liberal religious faith. His teachings blend together a progressive social program and a profound God-centered faith.

On Freedom

I can tell you that freedom is not a matter of place. It is a condition . . . When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed a release. On Meditation

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed . . . On Soul

Divine perfection is infinite, therefore the progress of the soul is also infinite. From the very birth of a human being the soul progresses, the intellect grows and knowledge increases . . . On the Material World

The honor and exaltation of man must be something more than material riches. Material comforts are only a branch, but the root of the exaltation of man is the good attributes and virtues which are the adornments of his reality. On Reality

We must not be content with simply following a certain course because we find our fathers pursued that course . . . Every man must be an investigator for himself.
