A hundred thousand glad tidings be upon ye that the Sun of the Reality of the Beauty of Abha hath shone forth from the Horizon of the Contingent Being and hath illumined the regions with the lights of the Most Great Guidance. The realities of the Old Testament and the Gospel are already fulfilled and the Mysteries of the Heavenly Books have become manifest. This is the century of the Merciful One and the Period of Joy and Gladness.
O ye heedless ones, become mindful!
O ye sleeping ones, be awakened!
O ye blind ones, become seeing!
O ye deaf ones, become hearing!
O ye dumb ones, become speakers!
O ye dead ones, become living!
O ye deprived ones, take a portion!
This is the effulgence of the Merciful and the moving of the Depthless Sea. This is the outpouring of the wonderful new springtime and the falling of the showers of the Bounty of the Most Great Lord!
This is thy mission.
