10 Cheniston Gardens London W
The subjoined notes are taken from The Quarterly Record of
'Higher Thought' Work, November 1911.
One of the most interesting and significant events which have taken place,
has been the visit of 'Abdu'l-Baha to London. The Persian Mage whose life,
passed in prison, has been spent in promoting peace and unity by the one
certain method of aiding individual spiritual development, must in a very
real sense have tasted of the travail of his soul and been satisfied.
Not only was he visited privately by nearly every earnest truth-seeker and
leader of high thought in London, but his message was made known to
thousands who had but dimly heard his name before.
The Higher Thought Centre was well known to 'Abdu'l-Baha as the place
where the Baha'is held their weekly meetings under the direction of Miss
Rosenberg, and an invitation to the Centre was accepted by him just two
days before his departure. Through his interpreter 'Abdu'l-Baha gave a
kindly greeting and a short impressive address, dwelling on the
blessedness of such an assembly gathered in a spirit of unity and
spiritual aspiration. He concluded with a lowly uttered fervent prayer in
his own tongue, and a benediction which all present felt to be very real.
On the following day a message was conveyed to the Centre from
'Abdu'l-Baha signifying the fullest appreciation of all kindness shown to
the Baha'is, and concluding with these words; it matters not what name
each calls himself--The Great Work is One.
Christ is ever in the world of existence. He has never disappeared out of
it.... Rest assured that Christ is present. The Spiritual beauty we see
around us today is from the breathings of Christ.
