    Your excitement is contagious :)

    Are there improved translations in this volume, or even previously unpublished texts?

    Most are new Translations. As such we have never read them before :)

    So from a Baha'i perspective, Abdu'lbaha was a gift from Baha'u'llah, he was known as the Master. Baha’u’llah called him amongst other names "The Mystery of God". Abdul'baha chose His own name and it means Servant of Baha, or Servant of Glory, His life was that of service to all humanity.

    So that is the excitement, all one can find in advice from Abdul'baha, is how to love and serve each other. We read them to inspire us to peace and love and a life of service.

    Regards Tony

    Previously unpublished. "The present volume consists of seventy-six newly translated selections chosen from Tablets originally published in Persian in volumes 3 and 4 of Muntakhabátí az Makátíb-i-Ḥaḍrat-i-‘Abdu’l-Bahá."
