Divine Manifestations

Question.--What is 'Abdu'l-Baha's teaching concerning the different Divine


Answer.--The Reality of all is One. Truth is one. Religions are like the

branches of one Tree. One branch is high, one is low and one in the

centre, yet all draw their life from the one stem. One branch bears fruit

and others are not laden so abundantly. All the Prophets are lights, they

only differ in degree; they shine like brilliant heavenly bodies, each

have their appointed place and time of ascension. Some are like lamps,

some like the moon, some like distant stars, and a few are like the sun,

shining from one end of the earth to the other. All have the same Light to

give, yet they are different in degree.
