THE TABLET OF THE HOLY MARINER: An illustrated Guide to Bahá'u'lláh's Mystical Writing in the Sufi Tradition

by Michael Sours

Beautifully illustrated and carefully explained! This is a guide to one of the most well-known and well-loved of Bahá'u'lláh's mystical works. Written in the Sufi tradition, the Tablet describes each soul's spiritual journey to God as a voyage on the Ark of eternity, guided by a holy Mariner. Using feminine imagery, Bahá'u'lláh narrates the struggle of divine love over the despair of evil.

In this Tablet, Bahá'u'lláh addresses the greatest barrier that stands between the religious seeker and truth--that is the corrupt and unworthy conduct of those who claim to be the followers of religion. The Tablet of the Holy Mariner was written to assist the seeker to overcome such obstacles.
