Independent Investigation Of Truth

“ Baha’u’llah continually urges man to free himself from the superstitions and traditions of the past and become an investigator of reality, for it will then be seen that God has revealed his light many times in order to illumine mankind in the path of evolution, in various countries and through many different prophets, masters and sages. ”


– Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 8.

Independent Investigation Of Truth

Bahá’ís encourage everyone to read the writings and make decisions about spiritual beliefs for themselves. When we do this we set ourselves free from imitation, from falsehood, from fossilised traditions that harm humanity and continue the mistakes of the past. 

…every individual member of humankind is exhorted and commanded to set aside superstitious beliefs, traditions and blind imitation of ancestral forms in religion and investigate reality for himself. Inasmuch as the fundamental reality is one, all religions and nations of the world will become one through investigation of reality. 

Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 433.
