A More Ardent Fire

Díyáfat-i-‘Izzat, the Feast of Might

For Yasmín, with deep appreciation.

“Whither can a lover go but to the land of his beloved?”                           (Bahá’u’lláh: Persian Hidden Word, number 4)

“The one I love is incapable of ill will and returns love for hatred.”                   (Eknath Easwaran: A More Ardent Fire, page 127)

“Love is a veil of fire that rends itself asunder.”                                      (Anonymous)

“Every receptive soul who hath in this Day inhaled the fragrance of His garment and hath, with a pure heart, set his face towards the all-glorious Horizon is reckoned among the people of Bahá in the Crimson Book.”                                    (Bahá’u’lláh: Kitáb-i-‘Ahd, paragraph 3)
