Spreading The Teaching

When asked by an American friend: Which is the best way to spread the

teaching? he said: By deeds. This way is open to all, and deeds are

understood by all. Join yourselves to those who work for the poor, the

weak and the unfortunate; this is greatly to be commended. To teach by

words requires the skill of a wise physician. He does not offer help to

those who do not want treatment. Do not press help on those who do not

need your help. The work of teaching is not for all.

The following incident shows how 'Abdu'l-Baha's attention is given to the

smallest details where others are involved. On hearing that some of his

friends had come down from London, and had planned to stop the night in

the village so as to be near him 'Abdu'l-Baha immediately made them his

guests at the Inn, and being concerned for their comfort, went over

personally to inspect the rooms, as the nights were getting cold.
