Welcome to the Bahá'í Community of Brockville, Ontario, Canada.

Bicentennial Celebration of the Birth of Bahá'u'lláh

Baha'u'llah

The Bahá’í writings often compare the coming of a Manifestation of God to the rising of the sun. The appearance of God’s messenger is like the start of each new day, when the sun’s rays release energy into the world, shedding light on all things and allowing the eye to see what was obscure in the darkness of night.

A new day has dawned for humanity with the coming of Bahá’u’lláh, “the Glory of God”, and His Herald, the Báb—the two most recent of the Divine Messengers Who have appeared throughout history. Just as the dawning sun stirs the sleeping world to life, the rising of these Twin Manifestations of God has reenergized humanity’s search for higher meaning and purpose in life. Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings shed light on human affairs at a time when, it can be argued, darkness has settled on the world. His teachings help humanity make sense of and navigate the great changes that are rapidly unfolding. While these changes disrupt the order of things, create chaos, and perplex even the most astute leaders, they also open the way for new patterns of life and new forms of human organization to emerge.

Baha'u'llah

In this turbulent period of human history, the world is in need of a unifying vision of our true nature as human beings and of the kind of world in which we would want to live. Bahá’ís believe that this vision is revealed in the writings of Bahá’u’lláh, whose life and teachings are the most compelling story of our time.

Bahá’u’lláh delivered a new revelation from God. His mission was to spiritually re-awaken humanity and unite all the peoples of the world. Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings form the basis of the Bahá’í Faith and offer a vision of infinite hope and healing. “My object is none other than the betterment of the world and the tranquillity of its peoples,” wrote Bahá’u’lláh. For this noble purpose, He endured a life of persecution, imprisonment, torture, and exile.
