Lawh-i-ard-i-ba (tablet Of The Land Of Ba)






PRAISE be to Him Who hath honoured the Land of Ba(86) through the presence
of Him round Whom all names revolve. All the atoms of the earth have
announced unto all created things that from behind the gate of the
Prison-city there hath appeared and above its horizon there hath shone
forth the Orb of the beauty of the great, the Most Mighty Branch of
God--His ancient and immutable Mystery--proceeding on its way to another
land. Sorrow, thereby, hath enveloped this Prison-city, whilst another
land rejoiceth. Exalted, immeasurably exalted is our Lord, the Fashioner
of the heavens and the Creator of all things, He through Whose sovereignty
the doors of the prison were opened, thereby causing what was promised
aforetime in the Tablets to be fulfilled. He is verily potent over what He
willeth, and in His grasp is the dominion of the entire creation. He is
the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Blessed, doubly blessed, is the ground which His footsteps have trodden,
the eye that hath been cheered by the beauty of His countenance, the ear
that hath been honoured by hearkening to His call, the heart that hath
tasted the sweetness of His love, the breast that hath dilated through His
remembrance, the pen that hath voiced His praise, the scroll that hath
borne the testimony of His writings. We beseech God--blessed and exalted be
He--that He may honour us with meeting Him soon. He is, in truth, the
All-Hearing, the All-Powerful, He Who is ready to answer.
