This is the Day - Baha'i Feast Devotional


A compilation from the Baha'i writings on the topic of "This is the Day" - a Baha'i Feast devotional program.


1. This is the Day in which God's most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness. It behoveth them to cleave to whatsoever will, in this Day, be conducive to the exaltation of their stations, and to the promotion of their best interests.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 6)


2. The whole duty of man in this Day is to attain that share of the flood of grace which God poureth forth for him.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 8)


3. Verily I say, this is the Day in which mankind can behold the Face, and hear the Voice, of the Promised One. The Call of God hath been raised, and the light of His countenance hath been lifted up upon men. (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 10)

4. Great indeed is this Day! The allusions made to it in all the sacred Scriptures as the Day of God attest its greatness. The soul of every Prophet of God, of every Divine Messenger, hath thirsted for this wondrous Day. All the diverskindreds of the earth have, likewise, yearned to attain it.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 10)


5. All glory be to this Day, the Day in which the fragrances of mercy have been wafted over all created things, a Day so blest that past ages and centuries can never hope to rival it, a Day in which the countenance of the Ancient of Days hath turned towards His holy seat.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 14)


6. This is the Day when the loved ones of God should keep their eyes directed towards His Manifestation, and fasten them upon whatsoever that Manifestation may be pleased to reveal. (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 171)

7. This is the Day whereon He Who is the Revealer of the names of God hath stepped out of the Tabernacle of glory, and proclaimed unto all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth: "Put away the cups of Paradise and all the life-giving waters they contain, for lo, the people of Baha have entered the blissful abode of the Divine Presence, and quaffed the wine of reunion, from the chalice of the beauty of their Lord, the All-Possessing, the Most High."

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 32)


8. This is a matchless Day. Matchless must, likewise, be the tongue that celebrateth the praise of the Desire of all nations, and matchless the deed that aspireth to be acceptable in His sight. The whole human race hath longed for this Day, that perchance it may fulfil that which well beseemeth its station, and is worthy of its destiny. Blessed is the man whom the affairs of the world have failed to deter from recognizing Him Who is the Lord of all things.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 38)


9. This is the Day whereon the All-Merciful hath come down in the clouds of knowledge, clothed with manifest sovereignty. (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 44)

10. The excellence of this Day is immensely exalted above the comprehension of men, however extensive their knowledge, however profound their understanding.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 107)
